WARNING: The GroupLinkAddress INI ...

My exterior light are not always turned on at night and looking at the log, I see this message when starting HS:

2010-08-03 15:10:19 - Insteon - WARNING: The GroupLinkAddress INI section for device 15(10.A2.ED) is corrupted. Please delete and re-add your device!

I tried to delete it and re-add but the message is still there.

Any ideas?

Stef,

The plugin thinks the kpl is in 8 key mode.

use the plugin to set it to 6 key mode. if it says 6 key mode, the set it to 8 key mode then back to 6 key mode.

then check opflags1 value from the EEValues= line in the device section of the ini.

it should say opflags1=32

I just notice that lots of my devices are showing this warning:

Warning: The links for this device have changed since you last downloaded the link tables. Please use the 'Setup/Program Device' option so this device can operate properly.

It could be the cause?

this is a unrelated msg, don't worry about it for now.

so is the kpl in 8btn mode now? try a "reprogram for homeseer" to fill in GroupLinkAddress 7 & 8, not sure why they didn't get created we you readded the device

The kpl is in 8 buttons mode.

The GroupLinkAddress 7 & 8 doesn't exist.

The OpFlags1 is equal to 40.

There are some link that look like they are in double (Link 18 to 22):

did you try using the plugin to set it to 8,6,8 btn so that you would get opflags1=8 instead of =40

if so and it didn't work, shutdown hs. in the ini, change the opflags1=8 for this kpl.

then reprogram for homeseer

don't mess with the links, they are different

i think its time to do a hard reset on the kpl.

turn detail debugging on for this...

delete the device from the plugin, hard reset it, then add it back in

No Registered Devices

I have been using the insteon plugin for several months with no problems until a few days ago when all of registered devices disapeared. Everything works fine except I cannot use the "Manage Devices" function towork with the links since none of the devices show up. Any ideas?

please try the following assuming you haven't added any new devices since reprogramming this one

shutdown hs, add the following to the approp device section in the insteon.ini

GroupLinkAddress 7=15
GroupLinkAddress 8=16

then use the program for homeseer

let me know
