Hi Richard
I am still having issues with receiving pictures with this latest version..I tried turning on the debugging options but the vera alerts folder is empty
I also tried your new HAL app and that is not working for me either
I have tried both apps on both of my Android devices (galaxy s2 and Asus tf300)

I develop and test on an S2 and S3.
On my S2 the directory is /sdcard/VeraAlerts
I believe it's device/version specific the path for the sdcard (/sdcard for me).

I wonder if I am missing a privilege  for writing a log file ... You did find the VeraAlerts directory on your SDCard ? If it could create the directory ... It should be able to create the file. In fact it creates the directory when it's trying to write the file.

I test by sending a message from the Vera Alerts plugin:
Code: [Select]
Test {Picture(87)}
Where 87 is the device ID of one of my cameras.

If you have TTS option enabled on the Phone it should also tell you if you have connection problems.

Both apps seem to crash before or as the log is written
The hal app does not behave like your demo video...some options are missing and some buttons don't work and the Vera alerts app has no way to access the menu on my transformer tablet on 4.2

I had removed the Title bar at the top to save on screen space for Android version 2.x
But when I upgraded to version 3.0 ... I was required to add it back for devices that do not have a Menu button.
I just made another update.

No, I still cannot make the pictures work.
At one point I could coose between films or vera alert to open pictures, but it was empty.
Now I dont get this option.
There ie a file on the sdcard saying pictures vera alert, it seems to be empty, and "no program to open this file".

I release another version today  3.0.6

More improvements to debug tracing ... I had some initialization problems for the tracing.

Also I added support for the camera to use LAN if you are testing at home ...
This will eliminate the path through the MCV servers Hopefully the combo changes will allow
pictures (and video) to get through and if not ... I will have some idea why ...

I appreciate your patience ...

Do not POST the log file ... if remote ... it will have a password. Edit it ... and/or mail it to me personally.

I received a log file ... and a confirmation ... the problem is not on the Android side ..
I have a problem on the Vera Side creating the snapshot at the time of the event.
If you login to Vera you should see some zero length files in /tmp/log/cmh/va.*.jpg

More changes to follow ...

: : : : : : Feature Request : : : : : :

 A while back you made it so alerts were delayed if there was an active call. It would be nice to be able to toggle this feature.
My forum account was apparently hacked by a leprechaun. And he's drunk all of the time. If a post of mine seems a little off kilter, it's probably because he made it.

It's already in the settings.
Set Message Delay to 1
