    I just installed the trial version.
    The other plugin for the GC-100 is not working correctly. HS Crashes intermittently.

    The sticky with a link to the documentation just generates a 404 error.

    Anyone have a good link to the documentation?

    The link is broken.

    You're right the link is broken. Try my copy. I believe it is the latest copy.
    mine was in the (homeseer dir\html\ultraGCIR.

      Problems with lost connection to CG100

      Sorry my previous post was in the wrong forum.

      I got the trial version of the Ultrajones GC100 plugin installed with a few IR devices. I disabled the original GC100 plugin I was using.

      I get messages in the log indicating that Ethernet connection to the GC100 is lost and the watchdog time reestablished connection successfully.

      6/29/2013 1:36:27 AM UltraGCIR Warning Watchdog Timer indicates TCP connection to Global Cache device [n.n.n.n] was lost.. Attempting to reconnect ...
      6/29/2013 1:36:27 AM UltraGCIR Info Ethernet connection established to n.n.n.n:4998
      6/29/2013 1:36:27 AM UltraGCIR Info Watchdog Timer reconnect attempt succeeded.

      I get this several times per hour.

      In some cases I get
      /28/2013 8:14:21 PM UltraGCIR Error Ethernet connection could not be made to n.n.n.n:4998 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it n.n.n.n:4998
      6/28/2013 8:14:21 PM UltraGCIR Warning Watchdog Timer reconnect attempt failed.

      At this point the GC100 is dead until I restart HS
      Even after it crashes I can ping it all day.

      I am running a Hometroller SE and the following plugin's
      HSTouch Android
      HSTouch IPhone
      HSTouch Server
      and now the UltraGCIR trial

      I tried disabling BLAN to see if it was interacting. No luck.
      Next I will try re-enabling BLAN and disable BLBackup. Went a backup is running there is a lot of traffic on the network.

      I have also seen some problems learning IR commands with the ILearn.exe program. I have the device plugged into the com port on the GC100. It connects to the IP ok. But when I attempt to lean a command from an IR remote (with fresh batteries) I have to press the remote button several times before it is learned. Sometimes I need to disconnect and re-connect. Once learned I have no problems pasting it into the plugin.

      Any idea's what is causing these problems or idea's of what to check would be greatly appreciated.

        One of the GC-100 limitations is it only allows one connection. It sounds like the UltraGCIR plug-in is fighting for a connect with the iLearn program or some other program that uses the GC-100?

        Plug-ins: UltraMon, UltraM1G, UltraCID, Ultra1Wire, UltraLog, UltraWeatherBug, UltraPioneerAVR, UltraGCIR

          Thanks Ultrajones
          Good to know.
          When I use iLearn.exe the plugin is also running. This might explain the problems I have with iLearn.exe.
          When I experience the problem with HS loosing it's connection to the GC100, iLearn is not running.

          Your plugin came recommend. I have several of your other plugin's that work GREAT! Before installing UltraGCIR I had another Global Cache plugin installed.
          I now have it disabled. Could it still be interfering? I know how to disable it but not how to uninstall it.
