Colin;

Did you enter username_DNSName.myreefangel.com

Like Roberto's example rimai_home.myreefangel.com from here viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4754&p=40874&hilit=DDNS#p40874

BTW, Colin. I'd like to take a crack at getting your cloud/lightning code into the RA_PWM class if that's OK with everyone. It would likely be something like ReefAngel.PWM.SetCloud[x] = y. Where you could set the cloud parameters for channel X to Y. I hadn't looked in detail at the arguments that your code takes.

What do you think about adding it to the libraries? Seems like something that all the "advanced" schmancy new lighting controllers (bluefish, storm x, etc) all include.

I may want to pick your brain about the D120 LED mod.
I saw you did a lot of testing on that


I only have a d120 over my fuge, so I stopped messing with it, but it worked well. Basically take the two dimming wires that go to the pot and run 0-10V on them in the right direction. 8) The arduino hardware in the relay box seems to be not as fragile as whatever the Apex has because the Apex folks freaked out when I said at 0V it put a teensy amount of current back in the other direction to dim all the way, but Roberto seemed to think it was no big deal.

I owe Roberto a bunch of usage notes for the dev code since a few of us have made some changes that people will really like if they decide to use them. Some of the stuff is under the hood and should just work without changes to the INO, but some would be fun for people to play with (new light and pump profiles).

Everyone with a non-Plus version of the ReefAngel is going to be missing out on increasingly more fun stuff.


Thanks.

I may switch over the the new 2014 knockoff model if I can't get the guy I bought the nes I have to repair one of mine or replace it with a newer model because they don't make the model I got anymore.

DDNS seems to be working for the portal. How do I get it to work with the Reef Angel Status app? It tells me "Unknown Host: http://cosmith71_120.reefangel.com:2000/r99

It could not have propagated through the DNS servers yet. I don't recall the TTL value (how frequent the DNS records get updated) that Roberto is using. It may take up to 24 hours for it to be ready and in use with all DNS servers.

Mine lives at C:\Username\My Documents\Arduino\update\feature.txt

You'd replace that file with the one downloaded in the .zip.


I don't have an update folder in any version of the libraries I have. DO I just create the folder and put it in there?

I was wondering about that. Patience isn't always my strong suit. :D

Lee had mentioned it but hadn't done any work yet. I thought I'd give it a try as a learning experience, but I'm thinking it would take me forever and still may be beyond my level right now. So, go for it!

I'm having the same issue. The Portal just updated to my new IP address after I disabled my no-ip host, but the Android app is giving me an "Error 14: Unknown Host:sacohen_myreeftank.myreefangel.com:2000//r99".

If the Portal is seeing it then shouldn't the App see it?

I can confirm that both entries for Colin and Steve are in the DNS server.
So, we've got 3 so far :)

Colin, i noticed you had .reefangel.com but the examples are .myreefangel.com not sure if you already saw that or not.
