    Can you remove 'dead' remote networks?

    I run the bluetooth connector on a couple of computers and during the last few months have had to reload software several times (Windows 7 the last time). As a 'reregister' a remote machine I get a new bluetooth 'NetworkX' in Homeseer. I've disabled the 'dead' clients in the bluetooth config but being the classic type A I'd really love to delete them all together. Can this be done manually and safely?

    As a related note, can the names be manually changed to something other than 'NetworkX'?

    To remove any dead network, you may:

    1) Shutdown HomeSeer

    2) Create a backup of the file HomeSeer 2\Config\hspi_bt.ini

    3) Edit HomeSeer 2\Config\hspi_bt.ini

    Remove any code block such as the following for dead networks

    Code:
    [Network1]
    ComputerSid=S-1-5-21-xxxxxxxxxxx-yyyyyyyyyyyy-zzzzzzzzzzz
    Enabled=True
    AutoDiscovery=True
    AutoDiscoveryInterval=30
    - Re-number the network ids (it must be a sequence with no gaps)

    if you had Network0, Network1 and Network2. If you remove Network1, you can't leave a gap, and you have to renumber Network2 to Network1

    - If you re-numbered any Network name, you also have to change the network name in device rules (lines HsConfigX)

    If you have a device set as the following

    Code:
    [Device1]
    Enabled=True
    BtAddress=(00:07:AA:BB:CC:DD
    BtName=ZZZZZ
    PollDelay=10
    PollMethod=AutoDiscovery
    PollServiceNumber=1
    LostConfirm=1
    HsDevice=B2
    HsConfig0=1,Device Detected,@(Network0)>=0 || @(Network1)>=0
    HsConfig1=0,Device Away,true
    HsConfig2=
    You might need to change the @(Network1) or @(Network0) if you renumbered

    3) Restart HomeSeer


    For your other question, unfortunately you can't change the network names.

      Thanks, I'll clean out the old client entries. I can live without the logical names.

        This worked like a champ, BTW. Thanks.
