C-Bus V5.1 driver for CQC V3
#15
damian.flynn Wrote:Hi Rohnan - I think i have a bug

the driver connects and works - i had 5.0 installed as drv_Lighting1; so I imported the new driver package. removed the driver and added the new driver with the same monkier again drv_Lighting1

using the Field Browser, i see the device is connected, and i can change the dim on any channel - all works as planned.

BUT - in 5.0 and now in 5.1 - when the driver connects - if a light is on - the driver will report its value as 100; even though its dimmed to 35% for example. If i use the change fld button and set a channel to a new value - cbus does what its told, but then when the driver refreshes - it reported the channel is 100 again...

I am using a direct serial connection to the PC Interface.

Damian

Thanks to the wonders of wifi and an unsecured network in the hospital, I can respond from the discomfort of a hospital visitors chair.

The short answer is that's how it works. When the driver first starts it asks the C-Bus network for a list of all group assresses and their current state. Unfortunately the state reported is either 'off' or 'not off' so not off translates to 100%

If you change the light level from a C-Bus switch after the driver is running, the network will advise the driver of the actual dim level and it will update CQC accordingly.

I'm interested to know if rather than using the change fld button on the admin interface if you used one of your normal interface buttons, the value tracks correctly. Also if you do use the change fld button and it reports incorrectly, have a look at the same field on the IV and see if it is also incorrect.
