  • What hardware is suported

    What hardware is supported except for Betabrite by Adaptive. Adaptive has newer models however I couldn't find any evidence of backwards compatibility.

    Sorry this does not really help you
    But the only one I have tried was a betabrite (it was an older model - i had one here but it got misplaced during our move to the new house)
    Hopefully others will respond and let you know if they have used any other models
    Cheers,
    Bob

      Thanks Blade, but this is not the question anymore as I ventured to buy Beta Brite in order to use your plug-in BLLED. I downloaded the plug-in and I connected Beta Brite to USB/serial interface and I can't make it working. Pls help with an advise of what am I doing wrong. Beta Brite does work off line displaying messages entered trough their own IR remote. However nothing changes when I connect the serial cable it still displays the old messages. The only difference is that IR remote doesn't work when connected to serial. That's fine but BLLED doesn't work either. I'm pretty confident that I did the serial connection properly. My USB/serial adapter has Rx and Tx lights that lit properly when I try to send something out. I gave it a benefit of a doubt and swapped pins 2 and 3 (Tx and Rx) but it didn't change anything and I swapped back. I'm sure your plug-in is OK as many others are using it, just need a help with the initial setup.

        I have some betabrite software here.
        Can you download and unzip it and give it a try and see if it works with your betabrite
        Here is the link:

          Thanks Blade. I did install it. Everything looks normal at the PC when I run it and send a message over to BetaBrite. The Rx and Tx lights blink briefly on my adapter indicating activity and the software reports that the message was sent out (no error messages whatsoever), however BetaBrite doesn't display the message. It displays the old message left from the manual programming.Looks to me that it is somehow locked or blocked not to get new messages. Also this software doesn't have (or I couldn't find it) setup menu. So the only place I setup the com port is during the installation of the software where I did set it up correctly to com1. There is no place to setup speed, parity etc. So based on info from this BLLED forum I set it up to 9600/7/E/1 in the Windows Device Manager.

            Hmmm ok
            Try doing this...

            Make sure you do this first:
            https://forums.homeseer.com/node/109952

            Then perform these steps:

            1. Disable the plugin
            2. Edit the hspi_BLLED.ini and change debugLevel=true
            3. Save INI file
            4. Restart the plugin

            Let it run for a minute or so and then disable debug logging in the options page

            Attach the BLLED-Detailed.log zipped here
            It is in the HS3 root folder

            Also, let me know which model you have. Post a link to it
            Maybe it does work off of a different speed

              FWIW - I couldn't get my BetaBrite to work until I changed the bps to 4800.

                    Hit a snag here. Did 1. trough 4. however the "BLLED-Detailed" file is old from 8/11/2018 and only 10KB in size.
                    Needless to say that all 4 boxes in the "Options" page are checked for logging.
                    Disabled and re-enabled BLLED plug-in to purge any old settings. No change. Do you want me to delete "BLLED-Detailed" to see if the plug-in would create new?

                    Thanks,

                              That log does not start from the startup of the plugin.
                              Can you delete it again and then do steps 1-4
                              Thanks
