Seth_J, I have had that conversation many times with Control4, and it’s more relevant now with the EA line. Try packaging it as a remote contol. I can’t speak to the performance of the SAvant remote, but I like the marketing direction. People... — Julie Jacobson on Jun 30
@SKooID, I had high hopes for the Savant remote.  But we couldn’t get it to program correctly for basic things like Input 2A vs 2B on a Panasonic Pro Plasma.  Sonos Connect did not come up as an AV device for programming the Receiver to come... — iknowtech on Jun 29
