The 00,00,02 value for LD1/LD2/LD3 looks correct. The values are stored in the “responder to” link record in the EZIO8T when the Scene was created through EZSrve. When you did the hardware reset this link record would have been lost. It is necessary to do a SYNCH DEVICE for the EZIO8T to get the “responder to” link record restored. Use the Manage Device Links of the SHN Utility to Display the link records in the EZIO8T to confirm that the link record exists.

The SHN Utility is not meant as a generalized Insteon trace so what you see under Insteon Traffic is not a good representation of what EZSrve issued to turn On the Output 3 Scene. If you have a PLC you can start SMD3 and watch the Insteon traffic through the SDM3 window,

There is no correlation between LD1/LD2/LD3 and cmd1/cmd2. The LDx values are stored in the “responder to” link record when the Scene was created. You do not see the LDx values move over the powerline when the Scene/Group is controlled. Only the EZIO8T looks at the LDx values stored in the link record when a Group command sequence is issued when the Scene is turned On or Off.

What you should see if you are able to view the Scene/Group control commands issued by EZSrve when you turn the Scene On is as follows…

Group Broadcast
from Insteon address – EZSrve address
to Insteon address – Unit number you assigned to EZSrve when Scene created
Flags 0xCx – the C value indicates a Group Broadcast command
Cmd1 0x11 – an Insteon ON command
Cmd2 0x?? – Group number – this is the Unit number you assigned to EZSrve when Scene created

Group Cleanup Direct
From Insteon address – EZSrve address
To Insteon address – EZIO8T address
Flags 0x4x – the 4 indicates a Group Cleanup Direct command
Cmd1 – 0x11
Cmd2 – Group number – this is the Unit number you assigned to EZSrve when Scene created

This is the SDM3 trace from when I turned On the EZSrve Scene through Device View/Control. Note that the Group/Unit number is 0x24 which is the Unit number I assigned to the Scene when I created the Scene to turn on Output 3.

PLC:eventraw=02
PLC:receiveinsteonraw=02 06 4C A5 00 00 24 CB 11 24 Group Broadcast
PLC:eventraw=02
PLC:receiveinsteonraw=02 06 4C A5 05 93 59 41 11 24 Group Cleanup Direct

When the EZIO8T receives the Group command sequence for Group 0X24 it searches the link database in the EZIO8T for matching “responder to” link record. If it finds a match to the EZSrve address and Group 0x24, it uses the LD1/LD2/LD3 values from the link record to determine what action to take in combination with the Insteon command. An ON command in this case should turn on Output 3.
