    OK. I’ll limit my programming to 2 Effects.

    Where can I get the Harmony UI? Your Twiki was decommissioned as of this week.

    I have wrestled most of the issues into submission. The Action that won’t delete doesn’t seem to do anything so I’ll leave it be. I had 24 hours of success with all my actions using 2.06.16 so I’m declaring victory on that. I’ll install the new Icon switch over the weekend and program it. Based on bench testing it should work OK wiht the current installation.

    Are you still on the February schedule for the new EZServe?

    The Harmony Client is run from an Adobe Flash image on an SHN server. Enter the following URL in a web browser ….

    http://www.compacta.org

    It will take several seconds for the first screen to come up as the client is being loaded over the internet.

    Enter the EZSrve IP address in the URL field and Simplehomenet (unless default changed) password

    I get a “Server Is not Responding … Please try again Later!” message for my server so I tried yours (98.189.165.252) and I get the same message.

    The SHN EZSrve (if that IP address is the SHN EZSrve) is not responding for me either. However, entering the local IP address of your EZSrve in the Server URL field should have allowed the Harmony client to connect to your EZSrve. Might check with the Java Discovery Tool to verify the router has not changed the address assigned to the EZSrve.

    My EZServe is at a fixed IP address. I tried both with and without the http:// and both fail. I tried IE and FireFox and both fail. Do I need to open or specify a port for the UI to work? FYI I’m using Flash 10.1.102.64

    I am running Adobe Flash 10,1,102,64. IE8 8.0.6001.18701. I enter http://www.compata.org under IE8 to invoke the Harmony client from the SHN server. Once the initial Harmony client screen is displayed I enter 192.168.2.3 into the Server URL field and Simplehomenet into the Password field. Very odd that the Java Discovery Tool can communicate with EZSrve to be able to list the EZSrve firmware level but the Flash client cannot login in. Under the Java Discovery Tool, left click the entry for EZSrve running 2.6.16, right click and select Connect. A popup will display requesting the Password. Is this login successful?

    EDIT: forgot to include the port number. I’m pretty sure the Harmony client uses for 8002. I have a Java program that uses the same interface. It was used for testing a year or so ago. It uses port 8002

    Discovery tool logs in without issue. I still can’t get the SHN to work either. I tried that before and it worked. Do you show the SHN EZSrve working with the UI?

    No. Just tried it again. I cannot reach the SHN EZSrve. The entire crew is at CES. May not have left it up.

    Hello Don,

    I’m sorry to hear of all the troubles you’re having there and I’m happy to see that Lee has helped you work around most of the concerns. We’re working on the firmware for the EZSrve and appreciate all feedback so we can make the device as bullet-proof as possible with the new HarmonyGUI.

    With the action you’ve set up…what I’m understanding is that you set up an action to start at an absolute time then set a delay to turn it off after 3 minutes and then on again after 3 minutes.

    If you delays were set up as 0, 3, and 3…then the last two effects would happen at the same time, as the delay is offset from the beginning time of the action, not from the last effect.

    You’d need to set it up as 0, 3, 6 for 3 minute intervals.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Justin,

    Yes, that helps alot! A bit more documentation on how this stuff works would be helpful. I’ll test it later this evening.

    Speaking of documentation, there is another item that deserves a mention in a README or somewhere. As I was playing with this new firmware I discovered that I had installed 2.06.12 instead of 2.06.16. I upgraded which went fine and I checked the devices and actions and all looked OK. A short while later I had lights starting to come on at odd times. It turns out the upgrade reset the location to some garbage with bad values so my sunrise/sunset times were wacky (sunrise was after sunset). Once I re-saved my location all is well.

    What is the status on the Flash UI? I can’t get it to run either using the test EZSrve or mine.

    Thanks

    I ran a DockLight trace of the Harmony client connecting to my local EZSrve. It is using port 8002. Something on your local LAN is preventing the Harmony client from opening a connection to port 8002.

    I opend up Port 8002 on my router and pointed it to my EZSrve. Confirmed that it was open using a port forwarding tester online. Still nothing.

    Any other suggestions?

    I thought port forwarding applied to an outside connection to the router over the WAN that is then forwarded to a local LAN address. The Harmony client is an application on the LAN side trying to connect to a local IP address on the LAN. Do you have any tools, such as DockLight, that can trace the LAN activity to see what is actually happening when the Harmony client is trying to establish a connection to the EZSrve.

    I installed the new ICON dimmer today. Good news is that I can control the light correctly from the EZSrve. However I stumbled into another issue. This new dimmer replaced a dimmer that failed. Once the new dimmer was installed I wanted to delete the old dimmer from the EZSrve (called ENTRY) and rename the new dimmer (ENTRY2) to the old name. No issue in deleting the old dimmer name and in renaming the new dimmer on the DEVICES screen but when I went to the actions associated with this dimmer the actions were empty. OK, easy enough, I’ll use the pulldown to reconnect the action to the new dimmer. However the new dimmer (now renamed ENTRY) was not listed as a device choice on the action. I looked at the second action associated with this dimmer and it was the same. OK, so I’ll restart the EZSrve. After restarting the EZSrve the new dimmer name (ENTRY) was in the pull down list and I was able to complete the updating of the action. This whole process was much harder than it should have been.

    I hadn’t left my computer for 10 minutes when the entry light came on. Wrong time. I investigated the action and it looked OK. I looked at the sunrise/sunset settings (ENTRY is set to turn on relative to sunset) and they were all wacky. The restart must have left garbage values in the sunrise/sunset times (please fix this). I reset those and now I’ll see if all the lights/devices come on and go off as they should.

    Try clicking on the SET TIMEZONE button after setting the values. I don’t they survive a reboot unless that button is clicked.
