Because of construction work in my home we had to switch off power several times. I noticed that after restoring power some of my X10 modules were no longer responding to commands issued from the PMIX35. I did some trouble shooting and found that the problem is solved after using the Xanura software and issuing and X10 command directly from UI. This leads me to believe that the PMIX35 returns to its default setting after a powerfailure. Using the Xanura software will reset the transmission voltage to a higher level after wich evry works fine again.
To overcome this problem I like to set tranmission voltage to 5V every time HS starts. Inorder to do this I have to send the following command to the PMIX35 "$>9000TV50009A#"
I am trying to write a script that does this but I am facing some problems with opening the comport
the problem is that the moment HS starts the com port for the PIMX35 is in use by HS and I cannot open it for the script:
6-9-2011 9:00:06 - Error - In OpenComPort, error opening port: Unable to obtain a handle to the COM port
6-9-2011 9:00:06 - Warning - Attempt to send to COM port 3, port is not open
Any ideas how I can share the port with HS? or other ways to send commands to the PIMX35 when it is in use?
