Initially we wanted to make the best KODI driver around however as we kept working on it our aspirations just kept getting higher and higher. As such the development efforts and timeframe has expanded exponentially. To get the driver to market quickly we decided to make two drivers. KODI Lite and KODI Full. Kodi Lite is still one of the best media player drivers on the market with exceptional features. Kodi Full however is THE best media player driver on the market with full library navigation, live meta data, cover art and more. They are both priced accordingly. Some people won't want all the features available in KODI Full so we've made KODI Lite which is priced to suit. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? This driver is the only driver in Control4 which will allow you to browse TV shows, video files, photos, youtube, VEVO and more. No other driver has this functionality.Now with Android support you can purchase Android Set Top Boxes for under $200 that will provide you with the full XBMC experience and Android experience. Play games, surf the web and use XBMC.Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie. Also automatically set the cinema to different modes based upon the movie aspect ratio.Setup logic to change your LED lightings colour dependant on the movie name. If you're watching something set in the ocean set it to blue. If you're watching something set in the jungle set it to green or if you're watching something set in the desert set it to orange. It can be very disruptive while watching a movie to have navigator pop up and tell me that someone is at my front door or perhaps i have a new email or something. This driver provides the ability to send Kodi announcements. Like a Control4 Announcement this will pop up a custom message however in this case it will not interrupt the current Kodi activity. It will just pop up in the bottom right hand corner for a few seconds and then hide away.This driver provides two way feedback on what media you're consuming and what the state of the media player is. It will tell you when the movie is playing, paused, stopped or if it is a movie, episode, song or unknown media type. This information is useful for customising your lighting and environment to suit your customer's requirements. The driver has the ability to automatically turn rooms on and off. Using this functionality you can essentially turn on your tv and receiver upon airplay or UPnP photos, video or music playback. If you leave the room for too long or fall asleep at the tv the driver will automatically turn the room off (all av devices off) upon detection of screensaver activation. Some projectors have the option of clearing out the black bars (masking) in movies. This driver reports back the aspect ratio of the video it is currently playing as a variable. Using this information we can automate these projection masking modes and as such make the user experience nicer. This driver has feedback on CPU usage, Memory usage and CPU temperature. This information is extremely important for maintaining the health of the hardware platform it is on. Using this information we can automate shutdowns so that no damage can occur on the device.Browse and search your music and video librarys directly from a Control4 user interface.What hardware will this work on?? This will work on any hardware that KODI supports (Windows, OSX, Linux, Raspberry Pi, Android) running XBMC version 12 (Frodo) & 13 (Gotham) and KODI version 14 (Helix), KODI version 15 (Isengard). Currently we prefer some of the higher end Android boxes and Intel NUC's as it is a more cleaner solution than the others. Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above?

  3. So i gotta tell you, that my C4 installers are technologically challenged thus I have to ask you - the experts. * I have DirecTV ready Samsung TVs, yet they've had no experience with them, so had to install mini boxes on each of the TVs. If you've had DirecTV you know how often those boxes fail. So here is my question: was anybody able to successfully integrate direcTV service through Samsungs (LGs)? Seems to me it's as simple as powering TV set and choosing the correct source. * I also have a big digital movies collection I would like to share throughout the house (network). Again, my installer suggested over a 10K upgrade. I was able to prove that ridiculous by simply buying the Personal Cloud ($115) that all my Smart TVs can see and play with no issues. The only issue I have is that the Seagate cloud I've had has VERY slow transfer speed so I had to abandon it (too long to download a new movie). Anybody has a solution? My router's USB is apparently for charging only, so plugging in a USB storage directly there won't share the data. Is there another way to share movies from something like WD passport (portable USB storage)? My TVs will see all the movies as long as they are network shared. Thanks!
  4. I run Mymovies and Dune player in my Control4 setup and use the Extra Vegetables driver for it. Everything was working perfectly fine until today. I had recently changed my wireless adapter on the PC that was running mymovies. So, this had changed the IP address. When I added a new movie, it wasn't coming on to control4. I tried scanning using Composer HE and it didn't find the movie. Even worse.. It deleted all my movies from Control 4. The movies themselves are on the NAS and mymovies looks fine on the PC. But, control4 doesn't see any of the movies. I guess when the IP was wrong, it didn't find the movies and the scan option to delete movies that it didn't find, deleted the movies. I realized that this was a IP address issue and changed the IP back to my old IP. Now, the new movie I added is showing up in Control4, but not any other movie. If I delete a movie from my movie and add it again, then it shows up in Control4. Is there an easy way to scan all the movies again and bring them into control4? I don't want to delete and add all my movies again. Please help!!
  5. Since I apparently botched my Control4 lock project, perhaps I can get this one going a bit easier. I have an external hard drive with 2000 movies on it. It's got a USB port. How can I get those movies to show up within Control4 in the most economical manor possible? I have a PC I can hook it up to if need be. I have another external drive that has an Ethernet port that I can hook up as a NAS. I'm a bit over budget on this Control4 project, so not having to buy additional hardware would be ideal. I appreciate the patience as I'm a bit of a Newbie at this! Thanks! David
  6. I recently purchased Composer HE in hopes of managing my media library, but realized pretty quickly that I don't have any sources of media available in the Media tab. Below are my specs and what I'm hoping to do. I have: NAS Storage (Linked network location on by my HTPC and my desktop PC) Network Recievers x2 (Denon X2100W) HTPC (with movies listed in Movie Library, but sourced from NAS) - Currently Basic IP Control PLEX (running on Desktop PC) - Not integrated FireTV - Pending install of IP drivers Right now none of the items above show up in the "Media" tab of composer HE. I'm hoping to make the movies that are ultimately stored on the NAS (with meta data) show up on my app and remotes, and when selected I'd like for them to launch through my WMC HTPC. To do this I think I would need: 1) For the NAS to be recognized in Composer HE (which it currently isn't) 2) For my media file metadata (xml files for both WMC and Plex) to be picked up in the "Movies" section of my remote 3) For the system to be smart enough to switch to my HTPC, and automatically start playback of the movie Can somebody let me know if this is possible without buying a separate media player? Playing the movies through the receiver also isn't possible since I use a matrix to split the video and several of the TVs do not receive output from the receiver. Thanks!
