wiki:Dont wait for confirmation

Don't wait for confirmation from TellStick

Background

Older TellStick batches do not send back confirmation after on/off has been sent. To allow for status update, and avoid the "An error occurred while communicating with TellStick"-error, please activate this setting. This setting was added in version 2.1.1 of our software.

How to activate in Linux

  1. Open the file /etc/tellstick.conf in an editor
  2. Add (or edit) the row ignoreControllerConfirmation = "true" to the file
  3. Restart the service (for example /etc/init.d/telldusd restart in Ubuntu)


How to activate in Windows

  1. Run regedit
  2. Locate the Telldus key by browsing to "My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Telldus" or "My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Telldus" for 64 bit systems
  3. Right click the Telldus key and select "New" -> "String value"
  4. Name the string ignoreControllerConfirmation
  5. Modify the string, set Value data to true
  6. Restart the service (go to Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools\Services, select TelldusService.exe and click "Restart service")
