Started my pool this weekend, CQC shows the driver is connected. But doesn't respond to commands, and the temp values are ?.

Not sure what's going on there. It looks like the driver is getting back something that's either garbled or completely not what it expects. Presumably one of the first (or the first) character of the response indicates what type it is and it doesn't understand any of them, which probably means it's getting something completely different.

Probably not the case, but are you sure you have the driver on the right serial port (or IP address)? I.e. is it really talking to something else and that's why the responses make no sense?

Is this a driver you had working before?
Yes its on the rite port, it was working last fall
Did you get a chance to check the Pentair driver, still not working.
Thanks Tom
Any up date on this? hasn't worked this season at all
You may have tried this, but it may be worth to turn off the Pentair control unit off at the breaker, and let it rest for 10-15 seconds and then restart.  I had this issue with my Jandy system, and it was related to some service work done where they changed a configuration not compatible with the driver.  There were several Jandy drivers out there at the time, and I found one that worked better with the changes done and modified it slightly and got it working.
