    The only thing that worked was to do a hard reset on the Harmony Hub, then reload the devices and activities from MyHarmony site. I then deleted all of the virtual devices and let your plugin rebuild everything from scratch. Then, everything was synchronized again. It was a pain since the device IDs all changed and made my events break, but it worked in the end.
    This leads me to believe that the Harmony Hub itself gets messed up in what it stores. Only a plugin like yours would ever uncover a Harmony issue like this. My two cents.
    That sounds like a real pain. Dont even know how to download everything back from the my harmony site. I will try Jon00's suggestion first and delete all devices. My feeling is it wont solve the problem... I will need time to try, probably weekend after next. Google should help reading of how to download everything back onto a reset harmony hub. Going to take some time restoring events, pairing with the shield etc

    Volume control

    Jon,
    I have now deleted the Harmony skills and all but the Homeseer Automation Skill and am attempting to use only your Harmony plugin and Alexa helper. I'm one of the people that has multiple Echos and Harmony Hubs - what a pain to get them to behave, but I think your plugin and helper may be the way forward. So far, I've had to use a different Amazon account to register the hubs separately, but this has a bunch of problems with using other features of Echos that are in the same household.

    Two things:
    1) I hate having to tell Alexa "Tell Homeseer to..." I'm hoping that you know of a solution to pair an Echo with a particular Harmony hub in your wisdom.
    2) I can't figure out how to change volume on my reciever up or down a user-specified number of units, OR to a particular volume setting.

    If you have a solution to this, you could be famous!
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    All I can suggest is that you delete the virtual devices, delete Jon00HarmonyHubData1.ini and restart.

    Just to try, I have closed the restful api, then rebooted HS3 (just to make sure everything is shut down). Restarted the restful api, then HS3. As before, its found all the right devices in the log, but it has not reflected that in the devices. Roku is still there, Lutron is missing
    I tried using the remote today on the shield device. Its changed the time stamp on the device,although showing Volume Up while I was actually sending sleep, so there is some communication

    I really don't know what you are doing but I've tested this on numerous occasions. After making changes to the hub, you have to shutdown the resful API (Command line) and plugin. When both restarted, the Restful API then reads the hub and the plugin reads the API.

    When I made the changes it was running, but since I have shut down and restarted plenty of times

    Did you shutdown the restful command window after making any changes?

    I thought the problem was solved after looking at my log:

    Mar-04 09:30:57 Jon00_Harmony Hub 1 - Activity Trigger Delay is set to 20 seconds

    Mar-04 09:30:57 Jon00_Harmony Hub 1 - Reading....

    but, its still not working. Also it has not taken away the Roku device (although its not showing in the log any more), and it has not created the Lutron device.

    Yes ! A reboot of the harmony hub was all it needed. So simple...

    Ok, that's why it is doing nothing!

    I would suggest you check your IP settings and reboot your Harmony Hub. Then close down the command Window and plugin and then restart it.

    It looks as if its doing something every 7 seconds (Is what I set it too), but in all this I can see a failed to communicate with harmony hub

    I'll have to change the settings as I close them automatically, then I can have a look tonight

    No, that would not make a difference. If this suddenly stopped working, something must of changed!

    Do you get the 5 second polling messages on the Command Window?

    No, I am still on .368, but I updated zwave to .190 but that should not make any difference ? Other than that I rebooted my router, but checked and changed my Harmony hub's IP to the correct one as that had changed
