  • Can't send to LCD from event-works otherwise

    I'm running a Uno over Ethernet. The LCD seems to be configured correctly since I can send a message from the device page to each line and it appears properly. But when I try to send a text from inside an event it doesn't work. From an event, I can clear a line or the entire screen. I can turn the LCD on/off. The last change time shows up, just nothing on the LCD. Headbanging.

    I'm sure I'm missing something simple.

    For some reason HomeSeer does not get the device thing updated before the send is initiated. I set the string with Easy Trigger, then send in a separate action. I think you can use your same action twice and the first pass will set the device string and the second send will get the data to the LCD.

      Thanks for the quick reply. An immediate second send doesn't work. I may have to try Easy Trigger. However, since a CLEAR action works and the SEND command does update the last device change time I'm thinking it might be a bug.

      I may just go the API route.

          Thanks, I'll grab the Easy Trigger plug-in. Should probably have it anyway.
