RFXtrx won't talk to EG

Post by skribb » Fri Jul 27, 2018 7:12 pm

how to relay from RFXmngr to EventGhost?

RXFmngr receives the messages fine. connected via USB, (Connceting via TCPIP doesn't support AC/aRC protocols which i need for my magnet contact.)

in RXFmngr i am connected via COM8 but choosing COM8 in the plugin EG says : 21:05:52 Can't open serial port!

Seting to COM1 in EG produces no error msg....

However the only thing that comes thru to EG log are occasional debug msgs.

Did you terminate RFXmgr before starting EventGhost? The com port can be accessed only by one program at the same time.

Wow thanks i did not know that.

Ok so I have exited RFXmngr and the events now show up in the EG log. I'll play around some more and see if I get stuck again.

thanks again :D

I now notice that having the plugin enabled in EG, it slurps up 25% CPU, as soon as I disable rfxtrx plugin, cpu usage drops to 0%, and re-enabling it immediately sets it back to 25%.

Any clues on this?
