Investment? Srsly? It's $35. Cheaper than a bar tab would certainly be to watch the game at the local pub.

Sounds like morning trip to Best Buy or other local electronics retailer would be a good idea. Get a chromecast from one of them.

I totally agree. I've made at least 50 edits to the programming since we moved in last Fall. Including the addition of several keypads as replacements for a few dimmers. I'm still not really make...

That's pretty much the same problem I have in a bedroom. 2 gang and needing 3 devices.

The RA2 fan control requires 1 gang. No combo fan/light exists (unfortunately). It controls only the fan,...

I ran into that problem a while ago with a Samsung TV. Turned out their audio decoder did a ridiculously horrible job of handling mid-range audio. Turned out the encoding used for Downton Abbey...

Yes, and also consider you can use a keypad (only) instead of a remote device. It's not actually wired as part of the circuit, it's just the keypad sending an RF command to the circuit's dimmer. Or...

Yes, in the realm of "all sorts of nonsense is possible" that's true.

More often than not the bottleneck is not the link speed but the host OS and disk subsystem. Link aggregation is quite often...

The lighting load is controlled either by a switch or a dimmer. Either can have a remote connected. Technically I think you can use remote switches on dimmers and vice versa. Obviously you'd lose...

The dimmer goes in the location that has the load wires leading to the lighting. Take that into consideration. You can use a dimmer with multiple remote dimmers. I've got one with three (outside...

You'd be better off with a hacksaw, dremel or a cut-off wheel in a chop saw. Even a jig saw would be 'less worse' than using a reciprocating saw (aka Destroyz-all). Those damned things skip and...

I disagree. WMC tends to get lost in a fair number of places. It keeps coming up as 'inconsistent' when you're wandering through the UI. I likewise tried using SiliconDust tuners with WMC (several...

What is it you expect to integrate with? It's likely you'll also need a main repeater, as that would handle the RA2 wireless connection from the VCRX to a wired Ethernet connection.

The RA2 sensors I've used have a setting on them to detect whether there's enough light or not. Got one on the front porch (up on the ceiling, well protected) and that setting keeps it from enabling...

Most consumer gear that's networkable depends upon the...

Depends on the distance needed. Full 300m usb-over-ethernet adapters are indeed more expensive than shorter active extender cables.

There's at least one 3.0 extension out there at a somewhat...

One nice touch is to set some lighting along a path a longer fade or a delay (they're different). As in, set...
