Module status
« on: January 04, 2005, 08:49:32 PM »

When ever I try to use the "module status"
condition in a macro it seem pretty abitrary
which house code it will allow me to use. I
can't seem to find anyway to select the house
code I want. How do others select the house
code of the module they wish to check?

Module status only works for the housecode
you have set to be monitored. If you have
housecode "A" set, then that is the only
housecode available to check. This is a
limitation of the firmware in the CM15A.
People have requested that this be changed -
but it would require more memory to keep
track of each housecode (16 times the
current amount used). I don't know exactly
how much memory is in the CM15A but it
would take about 32bytes just to keep track
of ON/OFF states - dims would be
considerably more. If you have the
conditional macros then you could keep
track using flags (13 flags - effectively)
plus the 16 from your house code.
