  Onkyo tx NR676
Posted by: George M - 05-29-2018, 03:17 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (34)

My Denon died so i am replacing it with the Onkyo TX NR676. It has good reviews and in checking the drivers I saw that there is a universal TCP driver for Integra\Onkyo.

However in trying to set it up I find that the drive is model specific and this model is not included. How hard would it be to include it or which model already there would be closest to working?

  CQC Voice Mics other than Kinect/Acoustic Magic
Posted by: IVB - 05-27-2018, 09:33 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (2)

Any mic should work with CQC voice, right? Does it have to be some fancy array mic? Or can I use any cheap mic?

I want to see if my $180 Minix can handle CQC Voice as it's super low power and I can use it for other stuff too. I'd have to buy a mic for it, don't want to do that unless CQC is hardware agnostic.

  CQC Voice Use cases
Posted by: IVB - 05-27-2018, 09:02 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (20)

Wondering what folks are doing with CQC Voice. The onslaught of nightmare articles about the Echo (plus my emails with JKMonroe) make me want to remove them ASAP. Right now we mainly use the Echo for the following items, i'd need to replace with CQC Voice functionality.

- What is the weather & forecast in (one of 2 cities). Should be easy.
- What is the time. Should be easy.
- Turn on/off (x) light. Should be easy.
- Play (artist/album/playlist). This might be tough if I have to code for every option.
- Set an alarm for <x> minutes. Not even sure how to do this in CQC, but we're CONSTANTLY doing this in the kitchen.
- How much time left in my alarm. (see above)

Given the privacy issues i'd certainly give up the alarm stuff, but it would be nice not to.

Not sure what else I could do, hence the post.

  Windows 10 1803 and TTS problem
Posted by: Ishmael - 05-27-2018, 10:13 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (5)

Thanks to our benevolent overlords, my CQC master server updated itself to Windows 10 1803 this week.  Ever since the update, TTS stopped working in CQC.  The speakers work, and if I use the control panel for speech settings, I do hear spoken text.

I tried the basic things like changing the speaker settings to disable enhancements and unchecked allowing applications to take exclusive control with no change.  I originally tried reconfiguring the driver, and then removed and reinstalled it.

This machine is a VM that just runs CQC and the Brultech ECM software.

Is anyone else on 1803 using TTS successfully?

Here are the errors from the CQC logs.

  No easy way to adjust schedules via a gui. Any plans to fix this?
Posted by: ghurty - 05-26-2018, 11:22 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

The more I play with Cqc the more I like it. Except there is one big thing missing .
I don't see a way to have the end user set schedules easily. I could code a schedule, but there is no easy to use graphical interface that would allow a regular user set a schedule for lights or a scene. I guess it may be possible to code a template that uses variables but that can get very complicated. Are there plans to address this? 

Thank you

  Raise / Lower Shades in Lutron RadioRa2
Posted by: avtexan - 05-26-2018, 02:43 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (3)

I am running the RadioRa2-IP-V2 3.6 driver and I am trying to get my shading set up
I am good on simulating a button press or controlling an individual shade.  

I am having difficulty with raise / lower.  This is what I have so far.

    P2=ButtonSim : SHADE_SCENE_AllRaise, Press

On the pico remote I press and hold to have it raise or lower and then it stops on release
When I do the ButtonSim above it will raise to 100 or lower to 0.  I dont know how to stop it where i would like to.

  GetZoneAlarmInfo Failure
Posted by: zra - 05-26-2018, 10:18 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

05/26 11:05:40-CQCMaster, CQCEventSrv, CQCEventWorkerThread0
    CQCKit, CQCKit_ThisFacility.cpp.634, Failed/Data Format, Error: 6257/0/0
    Token expansion failed during command processing
    GetZoneAlarmInfo:State:%(LVar:State),Number:%(LVar:Number), Name:%(LVar:Name)
      <CQCEventSrv> CQCEventSrv_ThisFacility.cpp - 2180



I'm getting this error as I try to capture the AlarmInfo after an alarm is triggered. 

Is it possible that a motion event triggering the alarm would not supply these values? 

Additionally, I read a post from a few years back where it was discussed that the system shouldn't provide null values here, generating, presumably the token expansion error. 

What do you think?

  How to tell WebRiva to rebuild itself
Posted by: ghurty - 05-24-2018, 09:02 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I did my first basic template, and tested webriva and it looks good. But I adjusted some setting and then refreshed web riva, and it still stayed looked the original way. How do I tell webriva to rebuild itself? If I waited long enough it happened by itself. Is there a way to speed it up?

Thank you

  How would I manually collect digits to enter into a variable
Posted by: ghurty - 05-24-2018, 08:48 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

From my understanding, the auto generator for the templates is gone in the newest version.
Does anyone have the instructions on how to have best have an arm button with a pop up for me to type to code in and then will pass it on to the alarm?

I understand the concepts
1) Button opens a pop up overlay
2) Collect the digits entered into a variable
3) Send it to the panel.

The part I dont know how to do is to collect the entered digits into a variable

  I found NVRs that support WebRTC
Posted by: ghurty - 05-24-2018, 07:15 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I know that in order to stream video reliable from security camera, it needs to be in WebRTC. I did a lot of research and Nx Witness/DW Spectrum/Hanwha Wave all have use WebRTC in the web view. Their server is free, you only pay to record streams. So you can use a different NVR to record.
