Communications Issues Solved - Enable XMPP on your Hub

To use my Harmony Hub with Indigo and the Harmony Hub Plugin I had to enable XMPP on my Hub. Basically all bets were off until I did this. It was easy to do but took be quite a bit of time to find it....

On your phone app go to the "hamburger" menu in the top right side of the screen. Tap Harmony Setup -> Add/Edit Devices & Activities -> SETTINGS -> HUB -> ENABLE XMPP

Where did I find the info?
https://support.logi.com/hc/en-001/comm ... I-via-XMPP
This was suggested in another post but I think the URL had changed. I searched support.logi.com for "Update-to-accessing-Harmony-Hub-s-local-API" and found it pretty quickly. You can get the whole story about why XMPPwas locked down at that link too.

What is XMPP?
Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol is a communication protocol for message-oriented middleware based on XML. It enables the near-real-time exchange of structured yet extensible data between any two or more network entities. - Wikipedia

Joe... you are awesome! Thanks for the excellent plug-in!

Enjoy,

Re: Communications Issues Solved - Enable XMPP on your Hub

There were a couple other threads about this back in January or so.

I guess I need to put a link in the readme or Wiki.

Re: Communications Issues Solved - Enable XMPP on your Hub

Interesting. I had previously done whatever was needed to install the "beta" or whatever I had to do to re-enable XMPP back when Logitech disabled it, and it was working totally fine. But over the last couple of days, my Indigo-Harmony connection stopped working for some reason. I followed the procedure above, and now it's working again. I wonder how often I'll need to do this?

Probably not again.

The initial solution was a quick fix hack that installed a patched version of the firmware that re-enabled XMPP support. Subsequent to that, Logitech released new firmware that made it an option in the firmware settings. So now that the option is there, as long as future firmware updates honor that setting, you should be set.
