    Well- that fixed the port thing.. I was still having problems.... Until....

    Then I noticed that the ethernet patch cable from my CPU to the patch panel I made was just an ethernet cable- ie. just used the green and orange pairs- no other pairs. I wired and buzzed it out using a full fledge cable (all pairs). I swapped that out for a full cable and now I can communicate with the thermostat. It was a good gotcha.... I don't feel too, too stupid....

    Oh happy day.....

    Thanks for you assistance,
    Mike

      Ok- me again..... so the script seems to work for generic stuff.... but then I updated my status script to do this---

      indoorTemp = hs.controlThermostat("J1","GetTemp",0)

      I get a type mismatch- but what is really interesting is that I do a...

      hs.writeLog "debug",device

      in the script. When running this script I just descibed, it shows the line as "J1:0" in the log. When the script runs on its own (every so often) it shows up properly at "J1". I copied the call right out of the hs manual. I could simply trunc the device down to the two lower byes- but I am wondering if I am making the call incorrectly or something?! Can anyone recreate?

      (I tried hs.controlThermostat(("J1"),"GetTemp",0) as well)
