Can't Modify the "Showtime" Lighting Scenario???
« on: March 17, 2009, 12:21:03 pm »
Ok, I must do this 5 times a day. The showtime lighting scenario in my living room always sets back to a default setting, turning off all the living room's perimeter lights (lamps/sconces) and dims the ceiling fan light to 10%. This happens every time some sort of media is being played, LiveTV, Videos, etc. Now I have a problem. Here is what I do:

Log into webadmin, click on the scenario.
Lamps are to shut off.
Ceiling light to stay at full.
Sconces to drop to 50%

I change this, click "Update" and then do a regen of the orbiter.
Next I am prompted to reload the router as "something has changed"
I do so, and it all goes back to the default of perimeter off, ceiling to 10%

What am I doing wrong. Am I missing a step? I just don't get it.

Is there something that is overwriting the scenario to a default?

Also in the family room, it turns off the lamps on the bookcase, and dims the cieling light there to 30%.

When I change this to off or on, it reverts back to default.

I don't know what else to try. I am open to any suggestions.

How odd, that doesn't happen to me at all. I'll put it on my list to look through the UpdateEntArea code, that's where the problem is, it's regenerating your auto-scenarios.
