My 5 inch was remove in order to move to 3.0. Day later it started to work again. Pretty happy about it. Never even re-identified it.

My old touchscreens too. Had to remove them from project but now work outside project ?! Was selling them on eBay. Cancelled sale.

Old touch screens can usually still connect and function somewhat. This was the case with virtually any other touch screen that Control4 has end-of-lifed over the years. Mini touches 'worked' far into OS 2, even though things slowly stopped working as OS updates happened.

It will likely work. Until it won't. Based on how Control4 worked in the past, they haven't been interested in killing them in the past.

So, I remove them and update, then add them back?

This means I can update my HC800 and kill all HC250’s then add back IE 5 and 7? Will DS work as well? Can some one confirm back if these will still work?

You remove them from the project. Then update, but you can still manually connect to director. It will load the old UI and things will "work-ish" with NO guarantees of level of service but at the moment most things still operate. The programming of the 4 buttons at the bottom will not work, bookmark page flips programmatically will also not work since they are not in the project. HC250s once in 3.0 cannot be added so they are paperweights in that system

Anybody tried with the original Door Station?  I wouldn't mind losing my touch screens if I went down this route, but don't want to lose by doorbell.  Don't care if the intercom quits.

Edit: whoops a couple others already asked.  Well, bump then...

As mentioned up-thread, this is not a supported configuration, and anything that doesn't work, just doesn't work.

Until I upgraded to 3.0, I still had a few mini-touch screens installed, that basically only still worked for volume / mute control, and maybe lights.

It's an option, although it's definitely a degraded experience.

I got upgraded to 3.0, I did not even have to manually connect to Director on the Infinity Edge units, they re-connected automatically.  There is no driver currently loaded for them in Composer, but all the wired ones show up in System Manager.  Strangely, even though the one wireless unit I had does not show up, it is also connected.

So I get to use some apps like Eragy, Yale, and Remote Finder a little while longer...

Upgraded to a DS2 so didn't fight that battle with the original DS...

Right, that's already been covered here, another one I found not mentioned was it doesn't seem to clear out the media playing if you stop it, but I was surprised anything from 4Store still worked at all.
