    Default Communication Server & CSEVENT.EXE issue

    Hi This is a replacement thread for a previous thread that was dealing with many issues as part of one thread. This thread deals with a single issue (as the title describes).

    For background - please refer to the following link http://www.promixis.com/phpBB2/viewt...=137416#137416

    Communication Server Issue
    I have the communication server setup in Girder Pro.
    I am using GBPVR as my PVR. In turn it uses CSEVENT.EXE to Talk to girder to change the channel. The Physcial device changing the channel is a GlobalCache.

    I have a script that is triggered that takes the Payload from the CSEVENT.EXE and sends individual channel changes commands to GloBalCache.

    Here is the issue.

    The Communication Server acknowledges as connection is received when CSEVENT>EXE is executed, but it does not always trigger the event.

    Okay, I can reproduce the non-logging of the itest event here.

    It's caused by a setting for the NetRemote feedback. If you have Log Messages unchecked then you don't get to see the events.

    Hey Rob

    Even with the
    - Enable Netremote - Ticked

    and

    - Log Messages - Ticked

    I still get the event itest not shown. It seems to almost be random in when it happens and when it doesn't.

    Looking at the screen shot you posted it does look as though it's every other one that works.

    Can you post the GML here?

    Rob,

    I have included all my GMLs for you just in case there is something in one of them causing problems.

    The iCable.GML is the one responsible for changing the channel.

    Note that I have given you the more basic one (without the itest script. I have done this as the errors are occurring regardless of whether i use a cript or just events

    Rob is this error related to the NR script or not?

    No, I don't think it is - I think it was a coincidence

    However, I am seeing the same thing that nurowolf is describing, but it is quite intermittent. I've just tried the following command 11 times in succession :-
    Code:
    csevent localhost 20005 girder 10 18
    Out of those 11 attempts 3 of them failed, ie the connection was closed opened and then closed.

    Second try, 21 attempts 2 of them failed.

    I'm afraid I can't see any sort of pattern

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for the help so far.

    I leave for the US tomorrow, and wont be back in Hong Kong until the 2nd Feb, so from Thursday onwards I will only be able to provide you with limited info about this issue.

    If nobody else is suffering from this problem then you may wish to give it a lower priority - I can always give the thread a bump when I get back

    Cheers
    Mark

    Aha!

    When it fails csevent.exe is returning an error code of -1, when it succeeds it returns 1
