Question about using RS232

Postby lyfelyte » Sun Mar 15, 2009 5:06 pm

On a CAV 6.6 system, would I still need to purchase the wall mount controllers if I am using the RS232 port and the ML plugin? I'd like to control the system zones with Mainlobby only and not have to use the wallmount controllers if I don't need them.

No, you dont need the wall mounted controllers.

I am using the cav 6.6 with just Mainlobby to control it though the RS232.

The advantages of controllers at each zone are worth the process of installation.
1. ir sensor built in
2. display for current song, current movie, or best yet incoming call.
3. hard controller
4. it looks cool


hope this helps with your decision.

I agree with bigbrother. IR is the major factor, works great with the Harmony remotes that I use. Another thing is that a computer will not always respond as expected and the hard controller will. Would not trade them in, definitely worth the effort.
