- Discovery is a bit wacky because of the way NEEO does it and some bugs in the jmdns implementation. Basically - the brain rarely sends out announcements on it’s own and really waits for a query. jmdns doesn’t ever query - it only passively listens (and it’s buffer size is too small - so I get partial results that I can use). So discovery isn’t rock solid. Next time that happens - run “dns-sd -B _neeo._tcp” from the command line. That will run a query and you’ll see it immediately in the inbox. Note: the command itself caches - so it will only query if you haven’t run it for x amount of time (although it’s really short).
- Yes - next step was to make it a trigger channel. I wanted to get this out before learning what and how to do trigger channels.
- That exception a few people get from time to time and I don’t know the cause. Has something to do with the old version not being cleanly uninstalled. Could you tell me exactly how you installed the new version (ie simply dropped the jar on top of the other, had no prior jar, etc)?
BTW - next up is making that channel a trigger channel and finally addressing OH1 items.
