It seems anything that sits on the end of a usb to serial chip isn't being detected properly.

Surely somebody else has to have done a fresh install using the 0810 scripts and come up against this?

As of tonight (May 3) I am running the latest alpha build and am getting a "failed to start" error after trying to manually add the MCV z-wave dongle (template 1754) to the core/hybrid- the device was not automatically detected.  (I'm using this controller:  http://shop.micasaverde.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=110&products_id=151) I hate to waste time on the IRC for what could be a simple issue- so if someone has something they would like me to try let me know.  I'm running 10x HA20 in-wall dimmers and a HA07 master controller FWIW.

Thanks

See Thom's post above.... "It seems anything that sits on the end of a usb to serial chip isn't being detected properly."

All these devices...MCV Stick, USB-UIRT, etc etc are buit around usb to serial components...

This issue is being worked on... be patient ;-)

totallymaxed,

it is not about detecting.

jimmejames has a problem with the stick, after he manually added it. First under the core, and after  that under the Core/Hybrid device.

I'm not pushing for a fix- just offering another test box.  I put the nas on a separate network so the GF has her music and my LMCE setup can be completely dedicated to testing.

Hmmm...I did not mention auto-detection at all as far as i can see. This is an issue with usb connected serial devices... it has nothing to do with auto-detection per-se

The Problem is of course, related to HAL.

It seems that serial devices are reported differently under more recent versions of HAL. Our HAL DCE device has to be modified as a result. I'm trying to figure out WHAT exactly changed by cross referencing lshal outputs from 7.10 and 8.10.

I still have a HDD with 710 installed on it where the MCV z-wave stick was controlling the lights- I put 810 on a new harddrive.  Just a matter of reinstalling the pci-e video card and moving the ide cable.  Are their any files from my setup that I can provide that would help?
