A/V Equipment disappear in 7.10RC1
« on: April 30, 2008, 05:06:44 am »
Anyone have the problem of disappearing a/v equipment setups?

It has happened twice.  All the other device type stick around (interfaces, core, MDs).

It seems to happen after I setup the IR codes for my Sony reciever and tv.  I am also using a GC-100 to control both.

Any advice on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

I had similar situation in Beta 4. I suspect that it might happen because parent device is dropped. For example, if your A/V equipment has GC100 as a parent and you drop GC100 then all its child devices will be dropped as well. Somehow it's related with new GC100 implementation.

I'm having a problem with a Denon receiver connected to the serial port of the GC100.  This is probably different, but the Denon receiver usually comes up as disabled.  My suspicion is that the DCE router tries to connect to it before the GC100 service is started and the port is created.  The Denon device doesn't see the expected reply and then marks the unit as disabled.  I need to look into this further.
