Using a just-purchased CM11A and just-downloaded
version of MisterHouse, all
seems to work well except X-10 commands issued by
CM11A from its internally-
stored timer events do not show up in the logs in
MisterHouse and do not show
indicated in the MH status of X-10 items.

(The controlled devices do however go on and off as
commanded).

I have a suspicion this is a similar matter as discussed
below, but not sure.

Has anyone resolved this (either the item above or
below)?
I am running Windows 98 SE.

with it. :)

that the signals

don"t get through to
misterhouse. For
instance, I"ll see a outside_motion = dark or light signal
in misterhouse, but
never a
motion/still signal if the x10 address for outside_motion
is in the CM11"s
memory.

This is a "feature" of the CM11A. An X10 power line
signal which triggers a
macro
stored in the CM11A"s EEPROM is not reported back to
the system. The only
thing reported is that a macro at EEPROM address NNN
has been executed.

It is possible to reconstruct the signal if the EEPROM
memory image is
preserved
in a file, but a MH script would have to be written to do
the "reverse
lookup".
The latest alpha release of the program "heyu2" (for
Linux/OS X/various
Unixes)
does this when it uploads a schedule to the EEPROM.
