    Check out this thread: http://board.homeseer.com/showthread...t=devtypes.cfg

    Which includes a recent version of someone's devtypes.cfg file (posted as a .txt file). If you've added device types of your own, this won't restore them, but it will get you back the basic set.

    Been through this several times myself, and the first couple of times I was not a happy camper, which is why I now back that file up every night (of course since I started backing it up I haven't had a problem...). I hope that in HS2 they do a better job of maintaining and protecting this file.

    Just checked and no backup ,should homeseer create a backup automatically, where do I get a new config file from. What a F*#@#ng pain , please dont tell me I have to re-install and start from scratch , I do have a ghost backup from 3 days ago but I dont recall if the devices were present then).

    Something happened to the devtypes.cfg file. Hopefully you have a backup of it, it is in the config folder in the main HS folder (or in the main HS folder if you are running an older version). This is one of several files that I back up every night.
