RE: Re: X10 Connector and BSC



Kevin may well be correct here but I'm not near my development machine to
check it out. In-house I always send the connector numbered output blocks
even if there's only one

xap-header
{
v=12
hop=1
uid=FFABCD00
class=xAPBSC.cmd
source=KCSoft.X10ControlPanel.baltic
target=ERSP.X10.pacific:workroom.desklights
}
output.state.1
{
id=*
state=On
level=30%
}

I'll check the code tomorrow to see how this is dealt with. It probably
uses
the xFx methods that deal with message block arrays so does whatever that
implements. Steve, could you try the numbered block please to see if this
is
what is holding you up.

Edward

Just a quick thought - before I even try and see if it works..

Try changing the boby section name to output.state.1  instead of
output.state

We don't allow multiple blocks of the same name so to allow multiple
devices to be addressed in one message we use several blocks named

output.state.1
output.state.2
output.state.3  etc

most BSC implementations also allow a single block called output.state
to work too but maybe Edwards' doesn't.  I think maybe Pierre in his
XLobby implementation is sending output.state maybe (?)  ...

I am assuming the television is on a binary ONOFF module eg an
appliance module and also as the current state shows as ? it means no
X10 commands have been sent to that module (so the state is unknown). As
the standard schema is working I think the CM11U/12U connection is proven.
