Tellstick Binding: TimeoutException error

I’m running the Tellstick extension (2.3.0) to control my Telldus net with Telldus Live. Everything seems to be working but the log gets filled with this message. I googled it but cant really find out what the problem is.
Anyone know what this is all about and what to do?

Did you set the max_idle setting as described in the docs?


Do you refer to the OH 1.x docs?
I’m running OH 2.3 and there is nothing about max_idle in the docs for the OH 2.x bindning. :slight_smile:


In that case I’ll point out that since you’re getting a timeout exception, it may have been a mistake to remove the configurability of the max_idle setting. Or perhaps this is not related to that setting, but some other timeout needs to be configurable.

The only thing I can find in the 2.x binding is in the settings for “Telldus Live gateway”:

Refresh Interval: 60000 ms
The refresh interval in ms which is used to poll Telldus Live.

60000 ms = 1 min. But I get the fault in my log every 15 min.
