  1. x10-amh program "daymap" schedule bug, or is it me? :-)


    Greetings!

    I'm starting to use my X-10 CP-290 more, with Linux, and Aaron
    Hightower's x10-amh utility. (I have been using it since the early 1980's
    with the OS-9 operating system.)

    I have it programmed for the "typical" and "everyday" things I have
    it do. However, I just started a new job, and I want my bedroom radio and
    light to come on at a different time on weekdays, versus weekends. (I did
    have them coming on at the same time every day, so I just now hit this
    particular problem.)

    And, I have a little problem. I'll describe it, and you all can
    either tell me that "I've missed something obvious, stupid" or offer me
    your (kind) advice on what I should do to fix it! :-)

    My bedroom radio is A-2, and my bedroom light is L-8. I want them to
    come on at 5:00 and 5:02 (the time they used to come on every day) on
    weekends, but at 3:40 and 3:42 on weekdays. I have the following four
    entries in my x10-amh schedule file:

    <<>>
    event {
    devmap 2
    daymap 1,2,3,4,5
    function on
    hour 3
    minute 40
    mode normal
    }

    event {
    devmap 2
    daymap 6,7
    function on
    hour 5
    mode normal
    }

    event {
    devmap 8
    daymap 1,2,3,4,5
    function on
    hour 3
    minute 42
    mode normal
    housecode l
    }

    event {
    devmap 8
    daymap 6,7
    function on
    hour 5
    minute 2
    mode normal
    housecode l
    }
    <<>>

    However, when I program, using the above schedule file, here are the
    four entries that coincide with the way they appear in my schedule file:

    <<>>
    event {
    devmap 2
    daymap 3,4,5,6,7
    function on
    hour 3
    minute 40
    mode normal
    }

    event {
    devmap 2
    daymap 1,2
    function on
    hour 5
    mode normal
    }

    event {
    devmap 8
    daymap 3,4,5,6,7
    function on
    hour 3
    minute 42
    mode normal
    housecode l
    }

    event {
    devmap 8
    daymap 1,2
    function on
    hour 5
    minute 2
    mode normal
    housecode l
    }
    <<>>

    The weekdays, which I am trying to make "1,2,3,4,5", show up as
    "3,4,5,6,7" from the CP-290 (x10-amh -l) output. And, the weekends, which
    I'm trying to make "6,7" in my schedule file, show up as "1,2" from the
    x10-amh -l output.

    I haven't tested this yet, but I don't think it is correct.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you for your help!

    Barry

    Barry looks like your out on your own on this one. I don't know of
    anyone (not saying that there isn't) using the CP290 (I still have 1)
    and Linux.

    BTW, I still have 3 OS9 level I boards (Sardis). I haven't run them
    in a long while (no extra time).
