  1. i have. there are a few in there, but would rather buy from someone here, if possible.
  2. I am looking for some used EA1's to put on each TV for OSD. Want to make it as easy as possible for wife and kids, so have to go the OSD route.
  3. So why mention them? Maybe you should only post what is actually for sale.... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks! I figured the monoprice one was not worth it, but wanted to confirm. as for google wifi, i am currently not using them in mesh mode, but have each connected via cat6 to the main switch.
  5. Thanks for all the replies. A few questions. I am putting a EA-3 in a central location with my current network gear. 1. Nvidia Shield. I have this at each TV, not in the AV/Network location. Is the IRUSB the best for control of these? 2. Switches. Recommended switch for network. I currently have a ubiquity 48 port managed switch. No POE. Is this fine? 3. Wifi. I use Google Wifi right now. Have had no issues with them. Any reason I have to change? Only thing on wifi right now is my phone and tablets 4. Speaker recommendations. I am going to go the route of ceiling and wall speakers, instead of sonos. What do i need for this? Just speakers and audio matrix? Is the matrix amplified, or do i need an amplifier, then a matrix. I only have 6-8 zones that I need audio for. Is the monoprice 6 zone any good? Thanks!
  6. Price for audio matrix, cameras, speakers, touchscreens. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. I grabbed a used EA3 from a member here. And i dont know anything about anything. i am completely wet behind the ears on c4. It just makes sense to me that they would have new hardware soonish to go alongside the new software. pure speculation on my part. Thanks everyone for the replies. looking forward to being a long time member here.
  8. i get that. But if I can get a 800 for $100 or so (which seems doable), get the system setup, then migrate to a new unit (if new hardware is coming out) that is worth the risk to me instead of dropping $1000-$2000 on a ea3 or ea5 that can be replaced with new hardware soon(ish). I posted a WTB for an Ea3. There was one for sale recently for 500 with a controller, If I can get it around that price, it is a no brainer to just spend the more money and get the EA. Thanks for the response.
  9. Looking to buy an EA3.
  10. I am looking to get an idea of what I should purchase (hopefully secondhand on here) for a Control 4 system. Here is my house Living Room LG 65” OLED Onkyo -TX-777 Klipsch 7.2.4 speakers Nvidia Shield Xbox One X PS4 Pro Nintendo Switch Sonos Play 5 (first gen) Master Bedroom Samsung 55” 4K (don’t know model off top of my head) Sonos Play 3 Nvidia Shield Kitchen and dining room Sonos Play 1 Guest Room Samsung 42” TV (don’t know model number off top of my head) Nvidia Shield Bedroom Samsung 55” TV (don’t know model number off top of my head) Nvidia Shield Sonos Play 1 Lutron Caseta switches throughout the house (probably 40) 2 x Nest Thermostats 2 x Rheem Water heaters with EcoNet (not sure this can connect) Garage Door (i dont have any sensors on it yet) and golf cart garage I already have 2 x 260 remotes I already have all my networking equipment (Ubiquity) and the house is wired for Cat6. Overall, it is a pretty basic setup. My questions. 1. For the time being, will an HC800 suffice for this setup for now? I assume new hardware is coming out soon(ish), so would rather not buy new EA3 or 5 yet. from my understanding, the HC800 will work on 3.0, but will not allow any new GUI on any devices, correct? 2. Sonos. I am debating getting rid of Sonos and getting in ceiling speakers in each room and a switch/matrix. Is this better for C4 or should i just stick with Sonos? 3. Is the OSD really necessary? Does anyone use it regularly? If it is useful, you need a controller on each TV, correct? I have Nvidia Shields on each TV now. I mostly watch TV/Movies from my Plex server. 4. Garage Door sensors. Any suggestions? Thank you!!!
