@kabdalla I am willing to ship you a Wiznet if you could try making the plugin work with it.

Cheers

@kabdalla

Minor bug: The plugin doesn't report mute status. This is shown in the plugin when muting and then unmuting, a field marked "Display" still reads *Muted* and the Mute icon doesn't change colors like the other buttons to indicate it's status. So you have to go by your ears alone and hope that your source is still playing.

Also is there a reason that the volume stays in position when turning off a zone? It's a little odd looking at a zone in AutHomation which is turned off and seeing the volume slider set to some % greater than 0. When a light, for example, is turned off the slider is pegged at 0%.
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.

Sorry all, I had some things going on that pulled me away from continuing support on this.  I plan on getting back at it tomorrow and I'll go through the various posts to see what's going on.

Glad to see you here again kabdalla. I hope all of your duty time was at least pleasant and productive. The plugin is working like a charm for me! I assume it's working for everyone else too because no one is complaining.

Please read this topic: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,17991.0.html
That would be a good thing if you could include the "reference" file in your plugin. Tell me if something is missing in this file. Any change can be discussed of course.

Doing that, we have a chance to make your plugin and for example the Sonos plugin working well on the same Vera.

@kabdalla

Have you ever thought about introducing a "Paging" functionality.

They key logic would be:

Page On:
* Determine Volume and SwitchPower status of all zones
* Turn on All Zones for whole home paging or announcements

Page Off:
* Return Volume and SwitchPower status of all zones to previous (pre-page) values.

Now that would be useful

I'm looking at modifying your plugin to support the Monoprice/McLelland/Factor 6-zone system (expandable to 18 zones with 3 units).  The serial port control protocol is at the end of this manual:
http://www.mclellandmusic.com/upfiles/down/MAP-1200HD%20User%20Manual.rar

Sorry for the RAR link, Monoprice doesn't have the manual available for download anymore for some reason. 

In any case, do you foresee this to be a difficult endeavor?  From the looks of it, it shouldn't be terribly hard.  I will need to add a control for each zone to turn on/off Do Not Disturb, it doesn't appear that Russound has this capability.

Any pointers on what I should look at changing?  I've only glanced over the code so far.

So, just to be clear, this is only designed to work over a serial connection, not via IP?

Thanks

Well, yesterday I accidentally turned Vera on when it wasn't connected to my Russound amp. Now Vera doesn't see the amp.

When I looked at the UI for the first time I got a "RNET Interface: Choose the serial port for the URTSI" message. I go to serial port configuration and what I see is attached. I select the Russound controller, hit save and then get a "Russound RNET Controller: Failed to open IO port" message.

I did exchange the USB cable for a longer one, so maybe that's the issue here, but the serial/USB adapter is lit up so I know it's at least getting USB power from vera.

Am I missing something simple here?

This might be relevant also. I'm logging to a USB drive. Around the same time I ran Vera with no Russound amp I got this message on the logs tab:

Code: [Select]
Errors log:
2014-03-07_13:37:14 CHECKDISK: Starting to check device: /dev/sda1 with: /usr/sbin/e2fsck

I get that message as a matter of course with the USB attached.

Fixing could be as easy as reconnect everything and do a restore from before you pulled it apart?

Yeah, well, I guess I posted too soon. I put the original USB cable back on and now it works. Odd since the other cable works fine for everything else I've used it for.

Don't you love it when it's that simple?
