CM19A and CM15a Buffer
« on: November 05, 2010, 09:29:14 AM »

Is it possible to clear the buffer on a CM19A or CM15A? I am using a CM19A now and it seems to lag behind my commands, After my program quits sending commands, the CM19A is still broadcasting for up to 60 seconds sometimes.

The CM19A has no internal memory.

Commands do queue up to be sent in the x10net service, but I don't believe we expose a way to flush that queue in the SDK.

A way to flush the x10net service buffer would be very welcome, as well as a "transmission complete" and/or "buffer empty" event.

As long as we're wishing.   :'

Would stopping and restarting the x10nets service accomplish this?

It would probably clear the buffer anyway.  Much in the same way a sledge hammer would probably work to turn off your computer.   rofl

There needs to be a less destructive way, methinks.

You're right, Bill.
I was thinking of this as more of a one-off, troubleshooting type of action, not as a way to do it regularly when using the program.

Yeah.  That's the problem.  Sometimes the software just needs to be able to tell the service to clear the buffer without potentially crashing all other software that's depending on it.
