Any one talking to their Vera yet ?
I can see there have been downloads ... both PC and Android.
I am looking for feedback before making another investment in time.
Requires MS Dot net 4.0. So I pass (right now at least).

If you think it would make a difference I could move back to 3.5
I will only have to modify a few lines of code.
I decided to use 4.0 since a major oil field service company I contract for is now deploying products (large and numerous) based on it to their very conservative (from an IT perspective) clients (Oil companies). That was adequate vetting for me.

I upgraded my HD2 phone to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and found a serious bug.
They do not allow network connections on the main thread ... So every connection to HalServer fails. Sorry about that it look like it only impacts a few people ... I will get it fixed this weekend.

It was working fine on my HTC evo running ice cream. You should run connections in an async task or a service.

I am running Android 4.0.3 on my old HD2 (Custom rom, bleading edge).
This must be a new change.

I had short (3 -5 second timeouts) on my connections so I left them in the main thread.
I have released an update and my connections (HalServer and Locate HalServer) are all in the background.

I have a scene that turns all lights in my house ... About 50 ... Then I asked the active status ... It took to long to say all the names ... So I also made it so that when you cancel the status dialog ... it stops the Text to Speech. Need to fix that on the PC side next.

It's released and available on the market.

I needed some newer features for Audio Quality. But then I changed my strategy to just send un-compressed PCM audio ... (The Android'a audio codec's are lacking) ... I will see if I can move it back.

Yep ...

Currently I have Hal setup to  require 2.3 ... I should be able to move it back to 2.2
I moved up my HD2 to 4.0.3. It does not have a SIM card ... I only connect to the internet using Wifi ... I use this as my remote control ... it's always sitting in the the living area ... plus I can use my current Cell phone if its close by.

think most of us are on android 2.3 so why bother as you can spend perfecting the allready working version. the htc does have 2.3 if it dont u need to update it lol 
the below 2.3 you get in all sorts off trouble with the speech engines.. wouldnt go there. we live in 2012 now :-)

IIRC you need to root the phone to get the update.  Updating beyond 2.2 doesn't seem available on this phone as is.  I understand jailbreaking for iPhones is fairly worry-free, but is that the case with an Legend running Android?
