  Problem with Action Parameters
Posted by: pjgregory - 06-24-2017, 04:25 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

There is a bug or inconsistency in passing Action Parameters to Global Actions.  Inside the GA - "MoveSelector", I have the following line


The driver is expecting P2 to be of type CARD4.  If I use the "Test" button for the routine in the Admin Interface, then I can enter an escaped parameter ie "2", and the action works correctly.  HOWEVER,  if I call the GA from a push button with the line.

System :: DoGlobalAct

then the "1" is not properly converted to a CARD value and the driver throws an error.  This has taken some time to track down as I assumed that if the "Test" button worked, so would any calling routine.  I am on 5.1.2

  Multiroom Audio Suggestions
Posted by: kblagron - 06-23-2017, 03:20 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - No Replies

I currently have two B&K CT-610 multiroom audio amps controlling 12 zones, and had an issue with one of them - doesn't power on, all fuses intact, and that is about as far as I feel comfortable with in-home repairs.  Since B&K is no longer in business supporting their old systems, I am going to buy a used B&K CT-610 which are easy to find on ebay, but want to be looking down the road for when those systems aren't easily found anymore. 

I was just curious if anyone had any comments on the Nuvo and Russound systems, or any others that may be CQC compatible.  Since I am wired to a central wiring room with speakers and keypads, I probably would like to keep it the same.  I do have a Sonos Connect to distribute music through the B&K, but not sure I want to spend the kind of money that would be required to get the Sonos Connect/Amps to cover my setup, plus I still use the keypads to turn music on at times.

Just looking for suggestions - for now I am going to try a used B&K option, but would be interested in what peoples thoughts were.

  Lutron Caseta & Zwave Issues
Posted by: dangerlong - 06-23-2017, 05:11 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (8)

I have two problems that hopefully someone can help me with.  I assume they are easy fixes and I am missing something simple.

First problem: I installed a new, clean copy of version 5.1.2 on a new computer.  I had been running 4.7 until the computer got wiped.  With the new install I can't open the client driver for zwave (non-vrcop).  Hoping to phase it out, but until then would like to get it working.  Before upgrade everything worked great.  Also, driver loads and connects fine.  Tried the tips in the Official Beta 5.2 thread, but so far no luck.  The error I get is:

06/22 22:35:55-CQCserver, CQCDataSrv, CIDOrbSrvWorkThread_1
    CQCDataSrv, CQCDataSrv_InstServerImpl.cpp.1468, Failed/Not Found, Error: 3200/0/0
    Facility 'ZWaveUSBC' was not found. Version=5.1

      <CQCAdmin> CQCKit_InstClientProxy.cpp - 545
      <CQCAdmin> CQCAdmin_ClientDrvTab.cpp - 114

Second problem is trying to get my new Lutron Caseta to connect.  So far no luck.  I added the text config file, entered IP address, username & password.  The android app for it on my phone works fine.  It is the Smart Bridge Pro.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

  Sonos Connect Trade
Posted by: potts.mike - 06-20-2017, 08:42 PM - Forum: Buy/Sell - No Replies

I have a slightly used Sonos Connect the I am not using. I was using it with a receiver in the living room but moved to a play bar, it worked perfectly fine when I replaced it.  I would like a play1 for the bedroom so if anyone is interested in a swap let me know.

What is the best way to have one scheduled action that does one thing at Sunrise and then another at sunset, or vice versa. The obvious thing would are lights but I could probably think of more if I tried.

  Forum outage last night
Posted by: Dean Roddey - 06-19-2017, 11:05 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I installed the quarterly Windows updates on the server, and something went awry. Everything was happy but MyBB seemingly. It was already 1AM or later when I did that, and then didn't notice that the forums were down until a while after that. I check and a couple of the updates failed and a few worked. So I rolled them all back and thankfully it came back. I was dreading an all nighter to figure out what went wrong.

  are triggers reliable?
Posted by: indygreg - 06-19-2017, 08:59 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

i am finding that sometimes triggers against global variables quit working.  if i go to the variable, open the trigger and save it then it starts working again.

anyone update to the v5 alpha/betas?  i had done it a while back (5.0.4, i think) and could not get CQC to see any of the devices.

some reading over on their forums led me to believe there is a change in the API.  im moving again and don't have anything setup, but am nearing the finish line on this renovation and am trying to get my ducks in a row.

  IV V5 and taskbar
Posted by: znelbok - 06-15-2017, 12:54 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (11)

In pre V5 versions of the IV, going into fullscreen(kiosk) would make the IV fit the entire screen and put itself above the taskbar.  Now in V5 the IV stays behind the taskbar which means it needs to be set to autohide.

Was this by design or an oversight or something else.

It was better the way it was - I could run it in fullscreen and then exit if I needed to.
