  1. Windows10, Startup Folder not working (the fix)

    Hi All,

    In case anyone gets the Windows 10 1803 update and post that (at least I think it was post that I was hitting it, as I've just been busy building a Win10 CortexW10 appliance on the fly),...

    I turn off authentication, and have never had the "frequency of requests too high" on an otherwise blank page. But I do concur with the poor responsiveness every so often.

    Is that... a corrupt install (I only run Win7, but presume that it would have been mentioned before now on the forum for Win8/8.1 people)??

    Indeed nice. Paul would be great to hear how you get on with this?

    Hi Chris, quietness (and reliability) were my main objectives. Also I didn't really want to use DC motors, meaning another potential issue (vs 240v) ones.

    And that lead me to Somfy blinds (can't...

    Brilliant, thanks for reply Karam. That's exactly what's needed, and indeed missed that feature already built into Cortex for this exact kind of thing to overcome!

    Hi Guys,

    I use a light level output for a sensor in rear eave. What I do is have a set of blackout blinds open part way at sunrise, then when full sunlight starts (and it goes above output level...

    Thanks for the pointer Chris, I'll check it out (looks good so far). Also I don't suppose you considered any others along the way (any others which might be smaller)?

    Old thread now, but FYI I've got a KLF100 in use for Velux roof windows, and prior to this I'd hacked the Velux LCD remote KLR 100. All linked to QRH relay for simple switching.

  14. DFP Panel Display > Prompt Screen, Round button to prompt Screen Enabled

    Hi All,

    As help file doesn't have it listed (but I've not upgraded to latest v27 either), I just wanted to check what this option does.

    From testing and now that I read it in this light, it...

    Untied/ unallocated logic gate input?

    Hi All,

    What happens when one configures a logic gate with nothing configured to one of the source inputs?

    Reason for this coming up, is I have a cascade of logic gates for the use of lighting...

    Hi Karam,

    Thanks for reply - that's exactly what I'm aiming towards actually, but indeed your reply really gives me something to aim for, for sophistication.

    - make config changes to Cortex, do you only do it on one, and then have to manually stop the network on both and copy the .icd file to the other one?

    Thanks Chris. I don't have this bit automated, so haven't been familiar (up until now!) with this object.

    Just going to see if this will do the job, the only thing in my mind is how I can stop it...

    To reword: I've got some Velux blinds which operate by Idratek relaies, to either close or open.

  25. HVAC Cooling, connecting to something not a Zone valve?

    Hi All,

    I'd like to provide cooling, but not a zone valve object.

    To be precise, it's to a Relay object, configured as a simple Pulsed, On/Off load. This On/Off controls a simple push button on...
