  1. Have had the IP driver stop working on me. Luckily, had the installer put IR buds on every ATV so just switched over to IR. I’m not thrilled with the operation compared to the IP driver. It registers the button presses just fine but the play/pause/select button is wonky and VERY dependent on whether you are in an app watching something or on a menu screen - and each app is acting a bit differently. Spoke with a great remote programmer I met on this forum and he said he’s seeing this quite a bit as well. Biggest issue with this is trying to use the Neeo. Wanted to replace an SR-2
  2. Here’s a link to an older ( 2015) video that does a good job of helping to understand some setup ideas for Shairbridge/Airplay. Learned a lot from this as my original plan was to set things up differently and my original installer had no recommendations. I found it helpful because it helps explain some of the basics for end users to discuss with their dealer: https://youtu.be/_HYkqprtpEY The meat of the Shairbridge info starts around 9:30 into the video.
  3. Just a quick shout out to Mitch. We have had major installation issues with our initial install and Mitch has PM’d me with advice after seeing one of my posts with some suggestions. We also had the chance to chat on the phone and he was super helpful. He is also a super contributing member of these forums and offers assistance to a LOT of folks questions/problems. When you’re looking for someone to help with remote programming I would definitely suggest reaching out to him. Thanks again Mitch!
  4. Without going into too much detail, I needed to find a new dealer/programmer so I reached out to Muj from this forum based on his reviews to help with some pretty significant programming challenges. He has been so great to work with so far - friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He has already helped with motion sensors, keypad programming, some basic settings, announcements and alerts, ceiling fan control, updating my system and a bunch of other things. On top of all of this, he is very efficient as well. We still have a bunch of work for him to do to get things where
  5. Just a quick update. I reset my controller again and the timer issue with the Kasa plug turning on at 5am seems to have corrected itself for now. Just curious how a scheduling agent item got applied to the outlet switch when I can find no reference to it anywhere and a reset just fixed it. I do have a few other outlet switches on the scheduler agent (for the iPads to avoid the battery swell) so maybe something was sent out to this outlet due to some odd reason but can’t figure it out. Certainly hope this doesn’t come back. Not sure if it’s a Kasa issue, C4 issue or programming issue but
  6. Yeah, I’m not too fluent with composer yet and trying to figure out what’s going on with my dealer. I don’t want to undo something and open another can of worms. Is there an easy way to find the scheduled event? I see it in the scheduler agent but don’t see how it connects to anything. Thanks!
  7. Interesting. Weird that everything is still functioning between C4 and my Kasa plugs, just the scheduled light turning on started happening not long ago. Wonder if that's related at all?
  8. I have Chowmain’s Kasa driver and a few outlets and power strips. One of the power strips is not acting as programmed from what I can tell. One is is that we have a timer set to turn off an iPad from 11p to 5a that I’m using as a touch screen. Have it doing this to avoid battery swell. That’s been working for months without any issues. Recently, both of the other outlets on that strip seem to be working off of the same schedule. Its been working correctly for the past few months with each plug in the strip turning off/on as prescribed. Just sewing if anyone else is experi
  9. Drudging up an older thread but had a few questions on this. I currently have fans with RF receivers built in. I have them set up via the Bond bridge but I'm finding that the lack of 2 way feedback is making it difficult to get things working as desired. For example, one fan is the only light in the room. If I turn off the light via navigator or a shortcut key on my SR260, the bond system doesn't really know the state so if I don't remember to turn the light back on, the keypad gets confused periodically (well, the programming). I'm thinking about getting these to replace two or thr
  10. I'm no expert on this but I'm starting to investigate thermostats as well and we purchased a York high efficiency, variable speed, multistage, etc. etc. and my understanding is that, at least with some newer units, the thermostat call for different speeds/stages only sets a threshold and the variable speed and stages are handled by the board on the HVAC unit. Again, don't quote me on this but it appears to be working with our current setup as far as I can tell and might open up some possibilities if you are able to confirm with your installers and/or manufacturers. I'm starting to lo
  11. That's what I was kind of banking on. They haven't even asked for any additional funds since the original deposit?? I was hoping that was a good faith effort on their part to get things working but now that I am hearing them getting frustrated, I'm wondering why that hasn't come up in the 4 months it's taken them to get this far. Again, just warning bells. I do like them, I just think they got in over their heads and weren't honest thinking they could figure it out. I could tell anyone in that situation that the end result is usually not what you think it will be with that approach.
  12. I had them on the line with Atlona support while at my house last time they were here and I'm getting the impression that they don't want to have to reprogram a bunch of stuff to make it work so they are using bubble gum and sticky tape to try to get it to function. Things that I'm noticing are weird 'resets' of the source selection x minutes into watching because they couldn't figure out how to get something to work. So now, about 10 minutes into every viewing session, I have to sit through another HDMI handshake. I feel like there are a lot of work arounds and not skilled programming for t
  13. Had access to all of the passwords from my previous Crestron installer (still have a great relationship with him). Again, the guinea pig analogy is really sticking as it took a few programming tries just to get the garage door statuses to show correctly, etc. and I'm still not receiving notifications for a few things. Feeling like I was put through a lot of added expense for a new security system that might not have needed to have been spent. Ugh all around. I do appreciate everyone throwing in your thoughts though. I'm still excited about the C4 system and know that pretty much all of
  14. That is exactly the case - I have been. Guinea pig for not only the Atlona but I had to pay $$ to upgrade my security system because they couldn’t figure out to integrate the HAI I had when I believe there was a driver for that, they didn’t tell me they didn’t have experience with lighting - paid to install a lot of keypads and switches, they told me they installed the Atlona pro UHD (which are supposed to be virtually identical for programming) so yeah, they told m they had a lot of experience installing motion sensors, the list goes on. Now I’m concerned that I will be losing some
