    Device link status/value shows "none" every time HS starts

    Device link status/value shows "none" every time HS starts. This is a bad thing because a lot of my events are based on "changes to activate" or "changes to deactivate" so if the link is "activate" when hs restarts it goes to "none" and when i press a button to deactivate the link, it changes the status to activate, which it already is...making sense? is there a way to fix that?

    Check you Device_State.bin file in the config directory and make sure it's not marked read only. If it is the the device states can't be written to this file.

      Rupp,
      If that file is important, it is probably the problem. I have three files in my HomeSeer2 root directory (not in config) that fit a description similar to that. one is devce_state.txt, other is devicestate_tmp.txt third is device_state_bad.txt

      the first two are "dated" this morning with current time as far as last change, so it sounds like they are being written to

        If it's being written to then it should be ok. Must be something else going on.

          my upe file was missing - it must not have transferred over in my recent migration to vista. putting it back in there seems to have fixed it.

            correction, spoke too soon.

            the upe file was there, my upstart config file didn't migrate over. so i recreated the upstart config file rom the network and exported it to the upe bile (backing up the old one of course). when i restarted hs the device link value showed correctly, but now upb doesn'twork.

            Here's the error I got:

            I'll restore the backedup upe file, dig out the backup of the upstart config file on the old machine (prior to vista) and bring it over, don't know if that should make a difference or not....

              back to square 1 - i guess i did have the hs upb config file. so i'm not sure why the device link value was the right way when i restarted before, must have had something to do with that error message...wierd
