USB-UIRT "Device not Ready" How to execute Macro on Error

Post by aldi13 » Wed Jul 16, 2014 3:11 pm

I consistently have trouble with my USB-UIRT. It's stops responding and I get the following error in the log when I attempt to use the device to transmit an IR command.

"Device not Ready"

How can I use the error in the Log as an event to trigger a Macro? EG does not allow me to drag the error over to a Macro.

If anyone has any ideas on the USB-UIRT plugin I am open to those too.

I have tried moving my USB-UIRT away from other device to avoid interference.
I have added Ferrite Beads to USB & IR Blaster
I have device plugged into Powered USB Hub (My Only Option as I run USB-UIRT over USB Cat 5 Extender)

Thanks in advance

I've never tried it, but theoretically EventGhost Application Control Plugin could help.

The plugin works perfectly. Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction.

Hi,

I've got the same problem. Can you post an XML sample of your config to restart EG when USB UIRT "crashed" ?

Thanks in advance,

Bob

I developed a sequence to restart the USB-UIRT but it never works. I always have to reboot the computer. The Devcon method doesn't seem to work for me. I can post some code later on when I get home.
