Cynical Network TCP OUT: Last Line Read stays empty

PostPosted: Sun Sep 13, 2020 2:28 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to wrap my head around communication with my amp. I can successfully send messages to a Global Caché GC100, which forwards the messages to the amplifier through RS232. Problem is that the Last Line Read variable has no value all the time, or if I am lucky "!". The amp spews all kinds of stuff, visible in the logs.
Question is: am I doing something wrong here in the setup of the device or the plugin? Or, is this some strange GC100 / RS232 issue? Or maybe even a bug in the plugin?

Any thoughts highly appreciated!

Thanks
Mark

It might help to show images of your configuration for the device (and the plugin) and an example of the output that's sent to the logs.

Hi again!

Apologies for the long delay.

When I send a message to my Arcam to turn on (see first image), I get the following log:

Code: Select all

CynicalNetwork is setup as follows:

As you can see, the last line should end up in Arcam_Status. Unfortunately, the variable remains at "no value".

So that's challenge #1 for me: how do I read the answer from the amp?

A second challenge is that I would like to pick up on changes to the state of the device caused by using the remote control. For example, volume changes or selecting a different input. How could I combine all that functionality? I tried using another Indigo device as a "TCP in", but that did not work.

Hopefully this gives a bit more info on what I am trying to accomplish, and how I have it set up so far.

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Perry,

Do you have any ideas how to fix the above problem?

Thanks!

I think I had this problem at one point; I don’t use my GC anymore but let me see if my devices are still configured.

ps Perry pops up once in a blue moon so don’t wait around for him.
