Bug Ubuntu Mate ( with version 4.10276 Domoticz) plant RFXCOM (red light fixed)

Post by pat054 » Friday 07 December 2018 20:27

Hello everyone,

Version: 4.10263 à 4.10276
Platform: Ubuntu Mate 18.04
Plugin/Hardware: RPI3

the current beta versions of Domoticz plant the RFXCOM RFXtrx433E hardware. The indicator of the case changes to solid red.
And the RFX hardware in Domoticz has version 25 instead of 1025. That's balo!

When will it stop?

The only way is to reinstall the site's RFXtrx433E configuration software. It's chaos

Someone have another idea?

Bug beta version 4.10266 plant RFXCOM (red light fixed)

Version: 4.10266
Platform: Ubuntu Mate
Plugin/Hardware: RPI3

Hello,

I have just updated Domoticz with its beta version 4.10266: my RFXtrx433E has its red light fixed when restarting Domoticz.

When will we have a Domoticz that works without disrupting RFXCOM?

Hello SweetPants,

Version: 4.10266
Platform: Ubuntu Mate 18.04
Plugin/Hardware: RPI3

the problem is this: after a good overnight operation of Domoticz and RFXCOM, I decided to stop and restart Domoticz by "sudo service domoticz stop and start". The LED of the RFXtrx433E is in solid red. The RFXCOM hardware in Domoticz "Settings / Hardware" presents a version to "RFXCOM - RFXtrx433 USB 433.92MHz Transceiver Version: 25 " while the version before the Domoticz shutdown was" RFXCOM - RFXtrx433 USB 433.92MHz Transceiver Version: Ext / 1025 ".
Why this problem?
For me, there is a problem Domoticz!

My only way to restore the RFXtrx433E version is to unplug and reconnect the RFX433E so that the LED power off and then to do a "firmware update" in Domoticz file RFXtrx433_Ext_1025.hex.
Bizard: no?

Waht happens if you try a RFXcom firmware upgrade with the update tool(s) supplied by RFXcom? http://www.rfxcom.com/epages/78165469.s ... /Downloads

I do not have a PC so no Windows. I only have an RPI3 on ​​Ubuntu Mate. And I believe that RFXmngr and RFXflash only work on Windows. So I'm stuck!

I have seen this before with an Ubuntu system. It seems the Ubuntu system transmits a data sequence that forces the RFXtrx in boot load mode.
Check with Raspbian.
RFXtrx433, RFXtrx433E, RFXtrx433XL

Re: Bug Ubuntu Mate ( with version 4.10276 Domoticz) plant RFXCOM (red light fixed)

Hello,

Under Raspbian, the RFXtrx433E does not crash anymore.

I was able to install the Domoticz database (which I had on Ubuntu Mate) on Raspbian.

Indeed, after the installation of Domoticz on Raspbian, I initialized the minimum parameters: beta version, latitude and longitude and French then click on "apply settings". Then I updated Domoticz to the latest beta: 4.10276. Finally, I restored the database (from Ubuntu Mate) in Domoticz under Raspbian by clicking on "restore database". Oh surprise! Coincidentally, the version of the RFXtrx433E was at 25: this meant that the Ubuntu Mate registered database had stored the default version 25. Given the problem, I had to update the firmware of the RFXtrx433E. The version of Domoticz has been changed from 25 to Ext / 1025. OK.

To check the proper functioning, I realized a "sudo service domoticz stop" and a "sudo service domoticz start", the RFXtrx433E no longer had its red light fixed. Same thing when restarting my RPI.

In conclusion, having gone under Raspbian, it is Ubuntu Mate who sowed discord in the RFXtrx433E when Domoticz was installed on a RPI3 with Ubuntu Mate. This last OS transmits and transmits a sequence of special characters during the initialization of a COM port, which puts RFXtrx in the initial loading mode.
