Hello fellow Automaters, I have a problem with a brand new ZXT-120 from Remotec that should control my LG AC unit. Before I found this device I had it set up with a dry contact from LG and a relay switch from Fibaro. It was only allowing me to turn the AC on or off to the state chosen by remote. It wasn't that bad but was also giving me many issues. Switching dry contact mode was disabling LG remote at all - so when time of the year was changing and I wanted to switch from heating to cooling it was very annoying to go through the process - especially that it wasnt very intuitive and required turning the POWER of the device off (which meant disabling electrcity at all in my apartment) But to the point: I have just received my new ZXT-120 from Remotec. The device HW version (found on the sticker) is 1.80. It is working in FLiRS battery mode. When I add it to my HC2 though (4.161Beta) it is being discovered as a version 1.20. I got 4 devices discovered (as per attached pic) and i can communicate with it. Version 1.20 codes only support 4 different codes for LG ACs (parameter 27), while version 1.80 supports 8 or 9 different codes. For me - only the 4 old codes are available from within HC2 parameter 27 (the max value set there is 512, while 1.80 new parameter codes exceed value of 512). The 1.20 old codes do not support some of my AC functions like FAN, and FAN Speeds. I am not sure that it also sends correct commands to my AC unit. I have tried to remove/add it 6 times already. Also With Wide Network Inclusion mode and without it. The standard troubleshooting I did included adding within 10 cm from HC2 and from normal location. It just discovers it as a version 1.20 and there is nothing I can do to change the required parameters. Version 1.80 has also additional code that is below 512 (464 - squared in the pic) but also not available for version 1.20 Has anybody faced that issue? Can you guys help please?
