Sounds like a mochad issue not detecting the CM19 on boot. I hope that doesn't happen every reboot.
Nice to hear your delay has now be reduced.

Seems to have been a one off occurrence. I don't know why or if it's related but it only happened the one time I used 'halt' before pulling the power on the pi.  In any case, the delays are gone now. :)

What version of Mochad are you using. Certain versions are notorious for RF lockups and delays.

Ver 0.1.17 has a little bug that can be adjusted but ver 0.1.16 is a lot more stable. As you probably know Raspbian is a subset of Debian.

NOTE Hansbit on May 10 2018: There is an issue with Mocad 0.1.17 and Debian Stretch that causes nc to become unresponsive after a first command. The solution is to add a time out parameter (-w1) to you nc command. Example:

  CM15Pro
  echo "pl a1 on" | nc -w1 localhost 1099
  CM19A
  echo "rf a1 on" | nc -w1 localhost 1099

If I remember that is what the demo calls look like for devices in HA-Bridge when the installer script is run.

Brobin might confirm this as I don't have the Alexa Hub currently running here. HA-Bridge is setup with HG here.

I had a look at the script seems HA-Bridge is loaded using the X10cmd.sh file to execute mochad commands,
so you won't find the command line in HA-Bridge
This uses -q 1 parameter. the -w 1 parameter if I remember now didn't work -q 1 was suggested as the alternative.

@Tuicemen might be worth compiling, installing and testing ver 0.1.18 of Mochad. It includes support for IPv6. https://github.com/linuxha/mochad

That may be something I'll  look at doing once HA season sets in. I've ordered another PI Zerro W to play with as my current ones are in operation working well with HG. However since there is little to no interest in the Alexa X10 Hub I feel it will be a waste of time.

Maybe little but not "no" - I love it! :)%
I'm really surprised that there's not more interest in this.  It's not only useful but a great way to get started learning the pi environment.  Even though you did all the heavy lifting I've learned a lot and am encouraged to go further.

I'd imagine there would be if everyone stayed positive about the project instead of picking holes in it at every opportunity particularly those who have no real interest in it.

I asked @Tuicemen to run a poll and ten users expressing interest should be good enough to continue. The alternatives as it stands don't look too promising.

Also there's been a development in the XtenLib and a new version downloadable from the NUGET repository. You could test that on HomeGenie if it's not already included https://www.nuget.org/packages/XTenLib/1.0.10
