I don't have issues with reboots on Stretch like I did on older OS versions.  But, no installation so far has kept email working so I assume it isn't and don't rely on it anymore.  I'll get one of my dusty old HG build cards out and put Buster on it since my home automation season is now starting!

Any idea if the new OS and Mono will require updating as frequently as in the past to keep email functioning?  I have never had it work for more than ~ 2 weeks before having to update it again.  It's really been the biggest disappointment with HG (which is actually a very good thing, everything else works as expected).   >!

To be honest, since installing Raspbian Stretch a while back and keeping current with the Mono project Raspbian release I've had no problems with email notifications. In fact using Raspbian Buster with Mono 6.0.0.327 has made the whole HG experience feel a bit smoother. My install is running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W quite happily 24/7 with no freeze ups and no need for regular rebooting as some users seem to do.

Your description sounds like this one. https://smartenit.com/product/harmony-g2-2/
The base model does ZigBee and Wi-Fi.
To add Insteon and X10 you need a PLM. Looks like it is older power line only USB from the options list. Can't say if the newer 2413U will work.
There is a Quick Guide on the products web page. Resources tab.

I swapped out my 2412U for a 2413U (dual band) so I could use an Insteon wireless Open/Close sensor on the lid of my package drop box. The 2413U works well. Now I get a text when a package is delivered - IF the driver uses it! USPS & UPS always use the box but with FEDEX and Amazon drivers it's 50-50 even with a sign under the doorbell.

Glad to hear you are up and running with HG using the latest Raspbian OS, Raspbian Buster. This is important as the previous Raspbian OS version, Raspbian Stretch will be heading to end of life support so updates available for it will be restricted to security updates for a limited amount of time. You can sit back for at least another three years without worrying about what Raspbian OS version you have.

What you now have is a HG installation unique to you. The problem with using another persons downloaded  image is, that persons image could have corrupted configuration files unknown to them. You then inherit those corrupted files and problems that arise with your installation as a result are very difficult to resolve.

Other than your sources list for Mono which i resolved, you saw how quickly the copy/paste method performed. You used exactly the instructions I outlined above. I think it's best that any user who is serious about exploiting HG fully should use this method. The main thing is that it works.

I hope that your new installation now resolves your Ghost RF commands issue. Maybe you could report back later and let us know if it does.

For any other HG users, you should give the above a try. If nothing else it will give you a basic primer in Raspbian and the Raspberry Pi which I imagine @edjal will clearly agree with.

 Hi All I have just installed the latest RPi Buster with the help of petera and his step by step instructions. I have learned a lot with his expert guidance. I am presently re configuring HG rather than using a backup of previous RPi. I had a couple of problems with previous versions. X10 E2 and E10 were not enabled in HG but were giving sporadic commands, and sometimes modules not scheduled on would turn on could not figure it out. In addition I'm sure some of my issues resulted from improper clearing memory of My CM15 controller. Both Tuicemen and petediscrete provided me with the proper procedure for clearing memory in CM15 in preparation for HG use. I learned the hard way this is a very important step. House codes have to be set to none, memory and history have to be cleared all AHP programs, Macros and schedules have to be deleted and finally most importantly download changes to interface (CM15)

Well I can announce we have at least one happy camper using HomeGenie on Raspbian Buster after following these installation instructions. He knows who he is so if he wants to share his adventures with you by all means I'm sure we would all like to hear about them  :)%

Since I was curious, you can also just use the following C# code in a HG module (assuming that's your HA software).  It will require framing correctly since HG uses HG code in a slightly different format.

https://gist.github.com/adrianstevens/776530e198734b34a9c8a43aaf880041

Code: [Select]
        public int GetJulianDate(int day, int month, int year)
        {
            year = year - (12 - month) / 10;

            month = month + 9;

            if (month >= 12)
                month = month - 12;

            var k1 = (int)(365.25 * (year + 4712));
            var k2 = (int)(30.6001 * month + 0.5);
           
            // 'j' for dates in Julian calendar:
            var julianDate = k1 + k2 + day + 59;

            //Gregorian calendar
            if (julianDate > 2299160)
            {
                var k3 = (int)((year / 100 + 49) * 0.75) - 38;
                julianDate = julianDate - k3; //at 12h UT (Universal Time)
            }

            return julianDate;
        }

        public double GetMoonAge(int day, int month, int year)
        {
            double ip, age;

            int julianDate = GetJulianDate(day, month, year);

            ip = (julianDate + 4.867) / 29.53059;
            ip = ip - Math.Floor(ip);

            age = ip * MoonCycleLength + MoonCycleLength / 2;

            if (age > MoonCycleLength)
                age -= MoonCycleLength;

            return age;
        }

I've never seen nor looked for anything on moon phase.  But, since the moon is on a 27 day cycle (memory could be wrong), you could technically write your own schedule event.

EDIT:  I was close, but not good enough for a scheduled event.

Quote
It takes 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes for our Moon to complete one full orbit around Earth. This is called the sidereal month, and is measured by our Moon's position relative to distant “fixed” stars. However, it takes our Moon about 29.5 days to complete one cycle of phases (from new Moon to new Moon).
