Okey, the PLCBUS saga continues.

I have now started experimenting with my WORKING lmce install.   :)

PLCBUS1141 works perfectly, but I discovered one funny bug. Here is what I found, testing a non-dimmable plug-in module (PLCBUS-2027U).

When I add a non-dimmable lamp (device template 37) in web admin and set the channel number, the lamp will work perfectly (after reloading router of course) UNTIL I choose a Floorplan object type for the lamp. As soon as I set the lamp to any of the floorplan objects, the lamp turns into a dimmable lamp. That results in a lamp that I only can turn off, but not on.

Ehm, I do not know what you are doing, but there shouldnt be any device as a child in your core.
it is plug and play, when you plug it in, everything would go automaticly.

I havent the child device yet, just checked the device template to check it´s ok before I try to plug the 1141 in.

yes, that should be blank. It shows up with the usb id of the prolific rs232/usb bridge. So we don't use that for device detection. We've a serial detection script that should find the device. But there have been issues with serial plug and play recently. So you might need to manually create the device and select the proper com port.

br Hari

Perfect, then ´ll go ahead an plug the 1141 in, lets see what happens. Thanks for your patience Hari!


Pnp scripts find the 1141, and downloads the required software and the 1141 buzz a few times. Everything seems to be ok, will add one lamp and continue testing after work tonight! YEAH!!

Sorry Hari, can't help you with the logs.

Now LMCE is installed from scratch. Took a look at the PLCBUS device template, and the Vendor model ID is blank. Is this as it should be? Haven´t plugged in the 1141 yet!

Haven´t enough bandwidth left for this month, I have only 3G with 10GB/month cap. Looked at the snapshots page in wiki yesterday when I were at a hotel with free wifi and downloaded the snapshot that is recommended in the wiki.

PLCBUS device just dies when sending a command to it.

I´ll try installing 8.10 from scratch again tonight from snapshot 24279 and lets start from there and lets solve the plcbus problems once for all!

spawning looks ok. Sending commands would be great. btw, there is a new version available in a bit that also scans for devices on house code A-E. If possible I'd like to see the output of that one. Please not only enable log level 35 but also 40 and 41.

thanks and best regards,

Wonderful, is the update&upgrade give me the new version or do I need to do anything else to get it?

reloading the router of course makes the PLCBUS device quit..

br Hari

Yeah of course, but the spawning sequence looks ok? Maybe I shall try to send commands to the lamp and then paste the log here?!

If a were at home I´d do it right away, but I won´t be at home until tomorrow evening.

Okay, here we go. I edited the pluto.conf and rebooted the core. My pluto.conf loglevel line reads:

LogLevels = 1,5,7,8,35

This is what I get when reloading the router.

On my old system I had the new PLCBUS driver working perfectly, I don´t remember wich snapshot I installed it from, but everything worked fine.

Now I have a new server that I have installed LMCE 810 on, but PLCBUS doesn´t work. I have tried numerous different snapshots to install from, but my PLCBUS1141 isn´t recognized by the pnp scripts. As I only have a 3G internet connection with a 10GB/month cap, I can´t download the most recent snapshot every now and then to try them out.

However, I discovered one thing. When I make an install from the most recent snapshot I´ve got (from mid june 2011) and take a closer look at the device template for PLCBUS, I see that the field "Vendor model ID" is left blank. Once I discovered that I fired up my old system to look att the working install, and I found that the model ID should be "067b2303".

I put "067b2303" into the model ID on my fresh install and voilá, pnp scripts finds the PLC1141 without problems, and installs the needed software.

But there is still something missing. After the successful install of the PLCBUS device, it sets the "COM port on PC" to "/dev/ttyUSB0". This config gives the following log at startup:

I remember that when the PLCBUS driver worked fine (my old system is dead, the drive gave up), the setting for "COM port on PC" was left unmodified or in "-Please select-" state. When I change that setting to -Please select- again, the setting is changed back to /dev/ttyUSB0 by itself when I reload the router.

Anyone who have a clue of whats wrong here?

I´m thinking of installing the core onto a SSD to increase performance and lifetime. Wich component does impact orbiter regen most; RAM, CPU or storage?! Any rule of thumb in this issue?!

All media storage is on a NAS so a 60-80GB SSD wold be ok, right?!

Hi Rukus,

i have just finished the install and updates, but have not run the linuxmce icon yet. Did you change the nvidia script before or after you ran the linuxmce icon?


So, one is supposed to have the system connected to the internet and run apt-get update & upgrade before clicking the LMCE icon?!

That is indeed not correct.
Dis you do an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade?

Not since I took the screenshot. I´ll do an update and see if that fixes the problem.

Looked closer at my PLCBUS device template. Is the "Plug&Play" section supposed to be empty?! This is what mine looks like!

Heard anything yet?!

I suspect it has to do with my modified z-wave there a way to restore one single device template to its original?
