  • Duplicate caller id

    Yes, I know this has been posted before, but I can't seem to find a way to stop it. I just bought and installed a NETCALLERID and I'm currently running a trial copy of WAF-Netcallerid. I also have HSP (I, like many others, hoped it would be the answer to my CID prayers ) installed. I thought about completely yanking it out, but use it as a backup answering machine. Sometimes I screen out a legitimate caller, so this way they can still leave a message, even if my phone doesn't ring. Anyways, I'm too the point that if I comment out the HS.SPEAK in the WAF script, I get no announcements. When I uncomment it, I get two announcements and two sets of log entries, about 5 seconds apart. I've told HSP to ignore the CID. If I shutdown WAF-NCID, I get no CID info in the log, so I think that's working as well.

    I've managed to get it down to a minor annoyance at the moment. I've stopped my custom logging script from running twice within 20 seconds, so the page now displays correctly, but it still announces twice. I cannot seem to stop that.

    Any ideas???

    Thanks.

    Brian

    Good Luck Brian

    Its a big secret of any help. You will find that no one is willing to help you. You are on your own with this program. I have tried to use this program twice and no luck with help. I believe I had even bought it once thinking I would get more help, then decided to go with Blades caller id. I really like blades plug in, works really great. The only problem is that it was not showing on my caller ID list as incoming calls, where as this one does. Blades would tell me that I had an in coming call of a call waiting, this one doesn't. If blades would only work better in listing in coming calls and reading the address book I would go with it in a minute. Blade is a big help also when ever you need it, if you need something added he will do it, if it can be done. We just had some problem with all the caller ID showing, where as with WAF, they seem to all show. They have a nice script that comes with it also and would do a lot of things I would be tickled to us, but I cant get it to work. But no one will give up that secret on the script. I think it would be easier to get the recipe for Bush's Baked Beans and ask Duke the dog.
    Sorry for being this way, I just know if I could help I would, I thought that was the reason for a message board was to get help and suggestions.

      Here is everything I could find without the script itself (since it is paid for)
      Hope this helps. Mine works great. But I installed it back in HS1.7 days. So memory not so good. Also I do not use HSPhone.

      Here is a snippet from my log-it does announce more than once, but I think it is set in the ini file.

        Thank you, the manual was more information then what I had before. If I could just get some of the stuff they say the script does. I am sure that I had bought it once, but just cant find it, because I remember him telling me "thank you for taking my wife out to dinner" I did not understand what that meant at first. Well he said it to me again, when I said I was going to purchase it, if I could get some of these scripts to work. For that price I want something more then just announcing the caller, homeseer phone is to do that, and we have already paid for that.

          Lack of support

          All,

          I wrote David directly and asked if he was still available to support his scripts. He apologized for his absence (I think his last post anywhere was in Jan.), and said he's been very busy with Church-related business. He hopes to be active on the board again soon, and offered to help me (and anyone else having issues) via e-mail in the meantime. I sent him e-mail via his profile so, if you're interested, you can certainly do the same.

          Regards,

          Brian

            Let's eliminate hardware.

            Do you know how to use Hyperterminal?

            Here are the settings:
            NetCallerID box actually runs at 4800 (n,8,1 I think).

            So shutdown HomeSeer.
            Start Hyperterminal with the above settings.
            Call yourself and make sure you only send one data stream per call.

              Take the address book entry of where you test call is coming from, let's say your cell phone.

              Uncheck 'Announce this caller' from any address book entry that has your cell phone number in any of the triggering fields.

              Call yourself.

                  If I don't uncomment SAMPLE 1 in the WAF script, I get no announcements. As soon as I uncomment SAMPLE 1, I get two announcements. I know it's not coming from the phone book, because it's announcing the text that's in the CID display, not the name in my PB entry.

                  Something is definitely causing it to kick off twice and, based on the above posting, it's not the CID itself. HSP, for all it's unreliability, never kicked off twice. I've exchanged several e-mails with David this evening, and I think we're pretty much both out of ideas.....

                  Thanks for the replies....

                    I understand. It was that "thanks for taking my wife out to dinner" comment that made me decide to write my own script rather than buy the plugin. It does just what I need and I can easily change it when necessary. In retrospect it was a good decision.

                      I hope I'm not missing something here.

                      If you have HSP, and you just really want reliable CID, try running it like I do where HSP takes care of everything and the WAF plugin just shoots HSP the reliable info. Let's at least start there not using any script. Let's just go for HSP and WAF as an info injector. Of course set your address book entry to annouce the caller.

                      Shutdown HS and edit your WAF-NetCallerID.ini file on your HS/config file:

                      [Settings]
                      InstallDone=True
                      i_com_port=2

                      i_hsp_installed=1
                      i_call_external_script=0 ' <--- This means just shoot HSP the info
                      i_cid_reversed=0
                      i_cid_comma_delimiter=0
                      i_enable_logging=1
                      s_script_name=CID with search.txt '<--- Doesn't matter, you aren't calling the script.
                      s_function_name=process_ncid_data '<--- Doesn't matter, you aren't calling the script.

                        Bill,

                        Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately, been there and done that. I've exchanged nearly a dozen e-mails with David in the last 24 hours, and we've tried everything imagineable, including uninstalling/reinstalling. The problem is that with WAF installed, each incoming call registers twice. The logs indicate that both WAF, HSP, and any dependent scripts launch twice with each call. My personal little script I stopped by telling HS not to run it twice in 20 secs, but I don't have that option for either HSP itself or WAF. As David and I are both out of ideas, I've moved the announcements into my little script (so it doesn't repeat). Everything still executes twice, but other than being annoying, there's no ill effects. I do currently have HSP doing the work, although I'm not sure if I'll leave it that way or not. Our last remaining theory is that it's a HS 2.2 thing. David is only running v2.1.... but I'm not interested in rolling back to find out.

                        Thanks again for all the replies...
