If you are displaying the Kscape List Guide on TV/Projector Screen, use the keypad as a SMS Text entry. The movies will jump to the alpha of the key pressed; key 2 will jump to A with one press or B with two presses.I'm beginning to wonder if I have the official free K-scape driver. I can't see how to even search on first letter much less more granular searches. Near as I can tell, the C4 driver I have does exactly what the K remote does. Is there something else it should do?
Yes. If you have a C4 Controller with HDMI hooked up to the projector, then the C4 GUI will display on the projector. The Chowmain driver will show the Kscape Database in C4 onscreen navigator. The C4 Navigator will be similar to the screenshots from the Chownmain website. There is also an option in the Chowmain Driver to automatically go back the the C4 Onscreen Navigator when the movie ends. See photos of my projector with C4 Navigator and Chowmain driver.Thank you so much for your help. Apparently I am a moron. Does this Chowmain driver put the equivalent of any of this on my projector screen?
I have no issue with the way it works (using the basic K-scape iPad app) but I am trying to make it very straight forward with a single device for my wife. The less using the small remote screen possible, the better.
Our driver provides the ability to browse and search through your Kaleidescape content on any Control4 user interface device including Onscreen Navigator, iOS app, Android app, Flash & T3 Touchscreens and more.I am looking for a C4 solution that does not require use of an external device such as an iPad but does provide the ability to search on the PJ screen using the C4 stick remote. Does this Chowmain software provide that or is it a new iPad based based solution on steroids? I am not dissing the application but want clarification on how it works.
I will assume that you already have experience with the Control4 onscreen navigator.As to the 48 hour trial period, I would need to have my home theater integrator install it before I could use it so I would prefer to understand as much as possible prior to acquiring the product and having them install it.
As noted previously, my interest in this product is to make it as easy as possible for my wife to be able to use our system. Prior to the K system, it was pretty straight forward [pick a disc from out physical library and place in Blu ray player] and it needs to be as or more straightforward now. I want the search functionality of the C4 iPad app but without having to use the iPad.
So walk me through the process (pressing which buttons, etc) that she would need to do to search for a movie, select it and play it. My lights are controlled by the play button on the physical remote so I don't need any of that functionality of your app.
