not sure what is to be done ? I have searched the forum. and came to this Topic. but looks like it is a dead topic. I tried to use this configs but still no luck.

This is wrong, there is no such option as mappings in an .items file. The Part

mappings=[0=“Off”, 1=“Slow”, 2=“Med”, 3=“High”]

is .sitemap only
Please be aware that even this is wrong, as there are wrong quotation marks used.

ok so i have to use the mappings in the site map and not in the items . sorry this is the first time I am trying the mappings link.

Thank you .
I am redoing my sitemap. as i only used groupes and pulled everything out of my item files. And everything is working now.
