  ISY to Polisy or Eisy?
Posted by: pilotguy7ca - 01-15-2023, 08:47 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (5)

With the ISY994i being officially discontinued I'm now looking to upgrade to either their Polisy or new Eisy system.

Does anyone know if the current CQC driver for ISY will work with either of these other units from UDI?

  CQC issues after Upgrade and Move to VM
Posted by: Ron Haley - 01-07-2023, 08:18 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (9)

I've decided to move everything to my Unraid server.  CQC has been running forever, so I'm pretty rusty.  I've completed the following steps.

Moved my early 5.4 CQC directory to the Windows 11 VM running on Unraid Server.

Upgraded via the recommended steps to 6.02.  That appeared to go well.

However, two CQC issues.
1. Scheduled event set to run daily at midnight fails to execute.  Works when manually triggered.  I haven't checked weekly or monthly events yet. Has anyone managed to get CQC to run correctly in a VM?  
2. RIVA.  I had the Apple CQC app running on my previous CQC install, interfacing with default ports 13516 & 13517. I'm not sure RIVA came across during the upgrade.  Is it part of the core or does it need to be selected.  I was unable to find it.   

Any help appreciated.

  Onkyo/Integra Receiver Driver
Posted by: sic0048 - 01-03-2023, 06:46 PM - Forum: Driver Development - Replies (6)

Well it was bound to happen.  I had to replace my older Integra receiver with a new Onkyo model - the TX-NR6050.  The old IP Integra driver doesn't even connect.  Here is a copy of the logs....

I'm hoping that someone is still online that wouldn't mind looking into modifying the driver with the new information.  I have reached out to Onkyo to see if I could get a copy of the current communication protocol document.

  Getting started with Media
Posted by: Spot - 11-19-2022, 07:32 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (1)

I'm a relatively new user to CQC, and am finally getting around to try and harness my media.  

I have consolidated my movie collection onto a Synology NAS (with Video Station), and use SageTV extenders for broadcast TV.  It gets difficult to browse the movie collection using SageTV.  However, once a movie is playing, the Sage interface works well for my wife. 

My plan is to keep the SageTV server on it's own machine, the CQC Server on it's own machine....and serve the video across the network.  I do plan to expand to music in the next iteration, but for now...I'm focused on movies.  I am fine with SageTV maintaining its recorded shows separately & not integrated into this solution.

A couple of questions/Notes:

1. I'm not averse to using another interface to play movies, but not all of my TVs are "smart"
2. I'd like to hear if there are "scaling" problems with the size of libraries & how others have dealt with it
3. I don't mind doing bulk updates of metadata....automatic would be nice, but not required

I know there's a lot of information in the documentation, but I thought I'd ask vs just trying each option.

  TTS Driver Error
Posted by: kblagron - 11-16-2022, 11:37 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

I am not sure what happened, maybe an update within Windows, but I am getting an error now when my scheduled events runs a TTS driver command.  I use this to announce the weather in the morning.  Nothing on software or hardware has changed other than Windows updates.

  Can't browse old threads
Posted by: karenlee - 10-26-2022, 01:29 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

When I log into this forum, the default is set to view the last 100 days.  If I change that so that I can view all the posts ever created, I can't get beyond Page 1.  If I click Page 2, or Next, then it just refreshes back to the last 100 days view.

Is there a setting somewhere to change this behaviour? Or is a forum-admin only function?

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.

  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 (7)

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.
