  • HS3 Upgrade - scripting not working - Solved!

    In HS2 .vb script, I used

    hs.SetDeviceValue(szAmplifierPowerDeviceCode, iAmplifierNewPowerState)

    to turn the receiver on which has worked great for a year or more.

    In HS3, I'm trying the same using both the command/immediate (prefixed with &) and in a .VB script, and just nothing happens on the receiver.

    I've used SetDeviceValueByName("Receiver PAVR1 Power", x) where x is 0 or 1 and SetDeviceValue(n,x) where n is the reference id shown when selecting the PAVR1 Power device in the advanced tab. HS doesn't balk, it just seems to silently ignore it (and obviously nothing changes on the receiver).

    Should I be doing something different to invoke this in the HS3 version of the plugin? The receiver works great under control from device management. Just not from script.

    (I need to control other functions such as inputs, other zone power, volume too... - if I can get one to work, I'm sure I can work out the rest).

    Thanks,
    John.

    Anyone? I know the "ByName" value is correct as hs.WriteLog("Test",hs.GetDeviceRefByName("Receiver PAVR1 Power")) returns the right number (190 in my case) which I supply as n to SetDeviceValue. Just nothing ever happens - whether passing 0, 1 or -1 as 'x'. This is my last stumbling block on the way to full-on HS3 migration. Can't figure out what I might be doing wrong, or whether there's a HS3 or UltraPioneerAVR bug stopping this working.
    Thanks,
    John.

      If it helps, with debug logging turned on. If the receiver is powered on and executing &hs.SetDeviceValue(190,1) from the immediate window

      So this looks like a plugin problem from what I can diagnose and looking at the RS232/Ethernet Pioneer protocol documentation. It doesn't appear the plugin ever sends the command to change the power state (P0 in this case to power off)

        You likely need to use a CAPI control command. Here's one that sets a dim command to a light switch:

        Code:
        hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(targetDev,false,targetDim,false,true))
        This will need to be adjusted to send the correct value to the receiver (should be a "1" from what I can tell. I use this plugin as well, but haven't played with the scripting yet. I may have some time on the weekend to check it out if you don't have it resolved by then. You'll likely have to play with the Boolean values to get it to work for the device. The first "false" should likely be changed to "true".

        Cheers

          YES!!!! Thank you. That got me in the right direction. The information in this thread I came across was extremely useful too when trying to understand the CAPIControl object model: http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=161009

          Power on for the receiver turned out to be HS.CapiControlHandler(HS.CapiGetSingleControl(190,True,"On", False,False))

          Thanks,
          John.
