Has anyone here developed a beta driver or means to start/stop a scene using either a Gen 2 or 3 hub? Would like to automatically open or close shades based on a schedule.

Hi all: Running 6.0.0 and have this error. Restarted the machine but still continues. I tried to pause a triggered event and this error is preventing changes. Any help would be appreciated.

  Help with RIVACmd
Posted by: alexismtz13 - 05-14-2022, 05:16 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

I am looking at using RIVACmd to just open a web player for spotify and possibly other music streaming services on either an overlay or a separate tab, but an overlay would be best. Do I need to declare a specific command in the WebRIVACmd.js file to do this? I saw in the documentation that CQC by default can handle some commands but then it only says it can handle one, "LoadURLTab". I tried that but, that doesn't work. I saw references to the OpenOverlayURL command in other posts but I couldn't make that work. If I do need to declare commands in the WebRIVACmd.js file, what is the syntax that I'm supposed to follow?

  An Idea - CQC as Front End for Home Assistant
Posted by: znelbok - 04-26-2022, 01:49 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

Because of the decline in CQC and I have a of of devices that are now not connected to CQC and I need to integrate somehow, I was unfortunately forced to look at Home Assistant.

Things like Tuya, Modbus, and many other mainstream integrations exist in HA that we really should have had in CQC.

People talk about how great it is, but honestly, CQC is far better with only the lack of drivers being its biggest issue right now.

So this got me thinking, HA has an API, so if we could build a driver for CQC to talk to HA, we could then use CQC as a graphical front end to HA, and this could breath some new life into CQC.

Keep all the drivers there, so something not in HA can be covered in CQC, and just add the HA drivers and auto import all fields from HA.

Any thoughts on this as an idea - I am still learning HA (2 days into it), and I still prefer my CQC by a long way so far.

  Admin Interface Help Doesn't Work
Posted by: alexismtz13 - 04-25-2022, 07:48 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

Why doesn't the help section work on the admin interface? Whenever I try to open something, I get an error saying:

"The address of the Master Server's Web Server could not be gotten"

I installed CQC following the instructions of the youtube video.

  Recurring Errors - Help to identify
Posted by: Bugman - 04-02-2022, 04:09 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

Hi: Just checked my logs and this appears over and over, so trying to track it down. The cursor blinks on and off while in the admin screen, so likely causing issues. Lake Main is a client not the server itself, but CQC is the server pc. Windows 10, and CQC version 6.0.0. Could be a couple of errors as well.

  MQTT Verify Configuration not working
Posted by: znelbok - 03-09-2022, 02:34 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

Hi all.

I have been trying some more MQTT stuff and I need to verify the config file but it appears to not run

C:\Program Files (x86)\CQC\Bin>CheckMQTTCfg.exe /Moniker=CBus

CQC MQTT Config Checker

The CQC environment was not found

C:\Program Files (x86)\CQC\Bin>

The environment variable not found is obviously the problem - does anyone know how to overcome this and get the verification to work.

  Trigger not Working after Move to new Server & V6.0.7
Posted by: kblagron - 03-01-2022, 10:32 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

I have a simple trigger that worked fine prior to moving to new hardware and a 6.0.7 upgrade.   

The trigger looks for "Is a Field Change For"  on ZonePlayer.CurTrack (which is the Sonos ZonePlayer driver).

Once the field changes, it should copy the name into a CQC Variable Driver file, but it doesn't anymore.  I changed the Triggered Event to log invocations, but it never logs the event, even though I can see it changing in the driver on the AI while watching it.

Any thoughts why a trigger wouldn't work anymore?  I know I had to delete and recreate a few driver setups to get them to work, so maybe that is what is needed here, but would like some input first.  

After reading this, I said what about the other triggered events, and low and behold they don't work either.  My scheduled events seem to work fine.  Anyway, any thoughts on what to do next would be grateful.

  Text to Speach Voice
Posted by: George M - 02-09-2022, 07:04 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

I have been on v 5.4.920 for quite some time. I was building a new computer (not the MS) and decided it was a good time to update to 6.0.7
Everything went smoothly except that now my voice for my announcements is the male voice where I always used one of the English voices. I checked in my windows settings and it is still set to use the female voice. Is there a setting somewhere to specify what voice to use?

With MATTER being in the [Tech] news a lot lately and with all the big players on board, does any see the need for MATTER within CQC.

I am not able to write the driver - that is way above my level, but if CQC is to stay relevant it needs to keep moving forward.
