I upgraded my OpenSprinklerPi to the new 2.1.4 firmware and everything seems to be fine except I can’t get it to turn on any of my valves. In both manual and quick program it shows that it is queuing and then powering a valve but no voltage change happens at the output terminal block. The logs show that it thinks it has energized the valves. Any ideas?
Hmm, it’s hard to imagine that a firmware upgrade would disable the valves. To begin, when you say firmware 2.1.4, you mean Dan’s Python interval program, is that right? The unified firmware doesn’t have version 2.1.4 yet.
I am aware of an UI bug that causes it to cache external IP and try to connect through your external IP. As a result, solenoid actions are being significantly delayed. Samer can probably explain the details, but here are my observations:
1) this bug seems to only trigger when I am using Chrome browser, and when I am using Safari or Firefox it seems fine.
2) Clearing Chrome browser cache/history seems to solve the issue at least temporarily (but it may start caching the external IP again).
Let me know either of the above makes any difference. This bug has been fixed and will be released in the next UI update.
