That's the problem AA. If you're getting a lot out of C4, good for you. Some guys vouch for your work, even though they admit you talk a lot of game. That's fine, I love the competition, honestly. I don't have problem with it. But your statement above is just as problematic as your initial statements about C4 replacing Crestron.
I could replace your Hummer with a RAV4, it does the same exact thing. And it's easy to drive.
I could replace your RTI T2C with an MX900, it does the same exact thing, and it's easy to use.
You're saying that your C4 systems are easy to use, but the way you say them is implying that Crestron systems aren't easy to use. That's politics, pure and simple. I know by experience that Crestron or AMX can be extremely easy to use, or kludged up to the max... just like a C4 can. But there's little levity coming from your posts.
This guy came here for advice, but instead of giving it you're motivation is to toot your own horn and get in a pissing match with Crestron dealers, some of who use C4 as well. I normally wouldn't care, except that you're supposed to represent our industry, hopefully with integrity and professionalism. I don't sell my products by implying all others are inferior, or that I can do x for the cost of y.
If you're as good as you say you are, you should be able to sell your product on it's merits, not on the negatives of another product. The pictures you posted leave more questions than answers: those installs looked so bad, almost too bad, that I wonder who installed them, if it was a reputable dealer at all, or somebody buying crap of Ebay. Did you even stop for a second to consider that?
