  IV works on Desktop, not Laptop
Posted by: ControlFreak - 11-15-2018, 09:25 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

When I try to launch IV on laptop, I get a pop up: "Waiting for CQC..." for a while; then the pop-up disappears and IV never launches
When I launch IV on my desktop, no problem; it launches right away.

laptop is wifi, desktop is ethernet. But wifi is working and I can load web pages on laptop as normal

CQC 5.2.1 has been installed on server and clients for a long time. I haven't made any changes.

There was a Windows update this Tuesday and both laptop and desktop were updated. Not sure if that matters.
Both are Winidows 10.0.17134

I tried turning off firewall (Windows Defender) on laptop. No help.

I have rebooted router and wifi WAP with no luck.

  ISY scenes and relays missing
Posted by: carealtor - 11-12-2018, 09:29 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

In the lighting section of the system configuration, the only lights that show from my ISY are the (Insteon) dimmer light switches.  The relay light switches don't show.  But even more importantly, the scenes on the ISY do not show.  They all show in the ISY device driver.

  Auto Generate general question
Posted by: carealtor - 11-12-2018, 04:08 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

I've been lurking here off and on for a few years and have downloaded CQC to evaluate 2 or 3 times over the years.

I went through most of the videos and have used the Auto Generate feature to put together some rudimentary interfaces.

The videos cover both manually putting together interfaces and also auto generating them.

I know some of you have come up with some extremely impressive systems and I'm wondering, are you using the Auto Generate feature for your interfaces or are you putting them together manually?  I don't want to start down one path only to find out that it's not the way the advanced users do it.

Yesterday before importing a ton of images from my old setup my ISY was working fine. Today I added some more buttons with ISY commands, and changed the names of the ISY devices in the ISY994i because they were to long to read in the device windows. When I did this I started getting errors almost every time. I deleted the drive in CQC, and reinstalled it, I loaded all the correct driver fields again after deleting the wrong links due to the renaming. Could a button that is not being used be causing a problem that still has the old driver commands in it? I am wondering if I need a bigger CPU? I cannot remember if my ASUS has a i3 or a i5, but I thought it would be enough. I am also wondering if maybe their is a more efficient way to do what I want to do. I am trying to send a  command to 11 channels via 9 individual Insteon Outdoor outlets to turn on and off the outlets depending on whether or not they need to be on or off for the particular mode. An example is if I was listening to a 5 channel music track, and decided I wanted to listen to a stereo one I am having the off signal to ever channel except the left and right front channels which I am sending the on signal to. Is it ok to send the on command to a device that is already on or is there a better more efficient way to do this? I am still a novice since I have not done this in years, and have most likely forgotten whatever i had learned. I think I can pick it up fast if I have an example to go by though (hopefully).

  How do I do this?
Posted by: ellisr63 - 11-10-2018, 08:25 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (27)

Hi everyone...long time since i have been around. Trying to set my new system up after many years of no CQC setup.

1: What button would I use to do the following...
Turn on multiple devices
Turn off multiple devices
Display that the devices have been turned off or on as a group on the button
Once I can get a Yamaha Driver for my CXA5100 preamp, I would also like it to send the command to the Yamaha for how many channels to turn on..ie 11 channel stereo, 5.1, Atmos, etc.

2: How do i copy my old graphic png files to CQC...Where is the directory?

3: What is the best/easiest way for me (rookie) to play movies, and music in CQC now? I have hundreds of Blurays, and thousands of CDs on my Unraid NAS, and currently use my Oppo 203, Kodi, and have a Plex account (need to setup Plex again) to stream them. I remember in the past I used MyMovies, and DVDProfiler, but I had DVD changers, and now all my movies are MKV, Ior SO.and most of my music is FLAC or WAV.

  Tangible Differences between CQC and Homeseer
Posted by: LittleJoe - 11-08-2018, 07:57 AM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (9)

Hi folks, 

I'm looking for some real world info on CQC. Given my use case below, is there anything tangible that CQC can do that Homeseer can't or vise versa?  I'm looking for differences in functionality and overall performance, preferably from people that have used both. 

I understand that CQC, being a commercial product, is higher quality and built for a different audience. However, it seems like I can get similar reliability and 80-90% of the functionality at approx. half the cost with HS. I'm worried that using CQC would be akin to using a Ferrari as a grocery-getter... 

For reference, here are the components I'm planning to use: 
-HAI OmniPRO II security system (still wondering what the main differences are over Elk M1 Gold)
-Lutron RadioRA2 lighting, outlets & HVAC w/motion sensors
-Blue Iris camera system
-Undetermined audio system 
-Undetermined sensor/PLC system preferably w/geofencing.
-Local, non-cloud based voice system (CQCVoice or HS Microsoft TTS?!?)
-Base on the countless horror stories on this forum, I'd rather not use any Z-wave devices 
-System needs to be no-kidding, 100% rock solid

I posted similar questions on Reddit, Cocoontech and avsforums. I received tons of really valuable information and insight, but thus far no one has been able to give me a straight answer to the question. I assume this means one of three things; no one has done a legit comparative analysis, people lack in-depth experience with both, or it simply boils down to preference?!? 

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge...

  The subscription queue was full, msg dropped
Posted by: Shaky - 11-02-2018, 07:23 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (13)

Hi Dean,

I have been watching my Master Server logs a lot lately hoping to catch the tray monitor crash.  That hasn't happened yet but I am seeing this subscription queue was full, msg dropped error once in a while but repeated over and over.  I think it is corresponding with the IV on a different PC freezing up and becoming unresponsive.  Every now and again I had noticed the IV freezing and I'd just reboot the IV's virtual PC and all would be well for a while.

I should note that once the error appears I can restart the IV and it works again for about 24hrs.  The reboot fixes it for weeks if not months.  This also usually corresponded with the tray monitor crash..but not this time.  It almost feels like a resource issue on the PC, but the numbers don't indicate that from what I see.

Any idea here?  CQC issue, windows issue?  Mem usage is 1.9GB / 3GB on the IV CPU at 25% (although that was after restarting the IV).  About the same on the Master Server.  I'll try and note it when it actually freezes up.

log attached.

  Copy and Paste into Global Cache Client Interface
Posted by: kblagron - 10-30-2018, 04:59 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I was going to add another IR command into the Global Cache Client Interface, and when I get to the part where you can manually enter the Pronto information, it no longer lets you cut and paste it.  I know in the past that was available (To be able to paste a Pronto string into the input box), because there was no way I would of input that many numbers.

  mixing console
Posted by: niffur - 10-30-2018, 04:57 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

Hi, has anyone tackled / attempted to control a mixing console using CQC?  We would like to automate some common functions of a modern mixing console, such as this one: https://www.allen-heath.com/ahproducts/qu-16/.  All the basic messaging seems to be in place to do what we need, but we'd like to hear from any others which have attempted or succeeded in interfacing to this class of equipment, if anyone has or seen a driver for a mixing console, or if you have ideas / tips about how to approach development of such a driver.  We are trying to support mixing of a few channels of a large conference center.
