    Yes, I have 3 older ZC6R's - the plugin didn't work initially, but was modified for my situation and now works fine. Last time I checked my version number was higher than the one in the updater. Let me know if you need me to post it. I'm now trying to figure out the best way to pry the setpoints/mode/etc out of the device as it is all lumped together and unusable with mainlobby.

      I THINK I finally got mine working, I have a ZCV4 and a ZCV6. I recently added the second controller. There are some occasional anomalies with the config screens and I also found it is best to restart the plug-in after each change. Now, with all that said, all the information in one string is a royal pain. Your only approach is to run a script once a minute to pull the information which is what I've been doing. Thus, you can set your own devices, or in the case of MainLobby, set variables in MainLobby.

        That's exactly what I want to do - update stat variables in MainLobby. I don't have the skill set yet to write scripts to do this. Would you mind sharing your script for this? Thanks in advance!

          Oops, sorry, I'm just now getting to this thread and I replied to the other thread. I think there are a couple of scripts posted which is what I sort of leached from and modified. Let me see if I can go track them down. I think one such script was on the other thread.

            Mine are fairly custom. Below is a VERY basic script for just grabbing the temperatures and placing them in HS devices. The script at the link below, appears to quite a few of the settings. The problem is, it is for only one thermostat. Regardless, whatever script you use, it'll need tweaked for your environment, such as the specific housecodes your using, or if your trying to send them directly to MainLobby, and whether your using a zone controller or not, etc. Are you wanting to set them to HS devices, or send them directly to ML? Another challeng is incrementing and decrementing the temperature from ML without a huge delay on the screen update in ML.
