Well an adventurous day to say the least.

Latest update hosed things.  Ended up going back to a saved image, which I now have on my SD card.

However, it seems to be the initial image and not one I saved - or at least I'm not really sure.

If i have an HDMI cable attached to the Pi I can see the splash screen - but if I try and connect via putty using the old IP address I get no connection.

And looking in my router I do not see the device connected at all.  So not really sure what happened.

Maybe time to start from scratch and get a new image etc - does the latest image use the Alexa interface that is integrated in HG or is it still the one with both as separate services ?

The latest image has the echo bridge (integrated Alexa)and no HA-Bridge.
if you can view the splash screen once that vanishes you can get to the pi configuration screen to setup shh and your wi-fi and may not to totaly start from scratch.

I was at the splash screen and thought I updated wifi - I had to scramble to find a keyboard.


I ended up at a prompt asking if I want to update and answered yes.

Now I don't get the splash screen.

Is there a way to edit the wifi info from the command line?

OK - back up and can access HG again.  I did NOT take an update.

What I plan on doing tomorrow is getting another SD card (I had one but its fried).

Then getting the new image for the X10Pi and using that and hopefully can use the same restore file to get that up and running.

Before I do, is there something I should do to remove my password for access before trying to update to the latest version of HG again?

I *think* I cleared my password and am making a backup of the configuration with that setting.

Assuming this is the correct place to Clear the password then I am all set:

K, just did that.  Thanks once again for your assistance.

I am now downloading version 1.2 of the PiX10Hub and going to install that on a new SD card I bought.  Then I am going to restore my backed up (no password) configuration to that once I swap the SD card into the Pi.

Hoping that goes smoothly and also gets me to the point where I have also updated HG to use the integrated Alexa Hub :)

@tuicemen

I installed Pix10Hub version 1.2 image on my new SD card.  I updated the config file for the wifi info and then stopped by currently running server on the hub, removed the present sd card (the backup one from last night) and inserted the new one.

Connected the power again and waited a minute or so.

I was able to connect using putty to the pix10hub, supplied user and pwd.  Was prompted with a question if I wanted to update - I answered N then hit return.

It then gave me my ip[ address as well as the port HG is running on (and none for alexa hub, which is good).

I never had to go thru the steps in the PiX10 Install Tutorial to Expand the File system?

I was able to connect to it via a browser and am restoring my backup configuration (without the password).

Everything appears back with the restored config.  I also just turned on the "Amazon Echo Interface: and it went thru a bunch of things that looked like it was setting up my devices.

OK - back up and running with version 1.2 of the PiX10Hub and my devices (along with Alexa) working again.

I am going to hold off taking any HG updates for awhile and make sure everything is good before proceeding with that.

Thank you for your help.   NOTE: My password in HG is still cleared, will hold off on that for awhile too.

you need to expand your file system! The down loaded image doesn't open up all your SD free space
