Could we have a update in this thread from MCV ? It's been a couple off weeks since the last one. Just want to know how things are going with U4 if it's not to much to ask.

Thanks

I feel a little better knowing these updates post here ... at least occasionally.  Thanks!

Yes... an update would be nice.. I am holding off upgrading the vera at my cabin until you guys pull the beta off UI4.   

I have UI4 at home but  had probs upgrading and the beast started working on its own a day later.  When at the cabin I don't have the luxury of a couple of days wait or doing tickets over a couple day period.  Hope that it works right off the bat but want to play it safe to make sure any upgrade issues found are resolved.

Remember that they are on a big push for CEDIA, next week.  Let's wait to demand an update until after that and maybe another week after that to recover, because hopefully they'll get a good amount of fixes and features done for the show.

I fully understand your post, but I am hoping for some or all of their CEDIA wish list to come to fruition.

apparently we can all reply but NOT start new threads in this area.

But anyway- it's been a while- anyone from MCV able to give some sort of an update to where things stand?

In early August we were told that in a few weeks we hopefully could expect a general release of UI4. Despite a number of requests I don't see any new updates on the roll-out schedule of UI4 for the general population. Any chance we could get an update now?

Also, can we get some distribution of the number of vera units currently on UI2, UI3 and UI4?

Thanks in advance for your help.

50/50. In my opinion it's on life support.

I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

@JOD

Do you think it's time to mirror/copy the forum and the wiki to an additional server? If the life support fails, the community would get out of contact ...

That would suck if the plug were pulled huh? I get so motivated every time I'm here reading what users come up with and how users are incorporating their units into their daily lives...

But I also lose hope seeing the same issues with no resolution.
Come on MCV, give me hope. Will we have a stable controller?

It looks like MCV is making a very classic small business mistake, expanding to fast. It was more important to work with Samsung on a product that will have a very limited life span than it was to assist users with existing issues (or acknowledge they even have customers) and make their core product more usable and stable. Vera has (possibly HAD) tremendous potential but as MCV seems to have completely abandoned it, I personally suspect it'll be a memory later this year. My real hope at this point is they release the software packages before they lock the doors.

Mbairhead, I think we'll never see that code. They'll be tied up with Samsung and we'll get ignored. Now they have competition from HomeSeer with a $300 Linux Plug (looks like the Sheeva or Guru plug). It too has Z-Wave and HomeSeer knows support. While I don't like Mono (personal preference) the price difference vs what you get weight heavily towards HomeSeer. And if the prospective customer comes to these forums I think they'll run screaming in the other direction.

I'd say that MCV has about 6 months to fix things. Then they've let the competition in the door.
