So i assume you changed the standard IP from the HCL?

  • The old HCL died. 

    1. I received the new one today. 
    2. I started it, changed its IP to where I want it (my ip address space is busy) and restarted.  All good
    3. I couldnt see the backups from the old one (I had expected to).
    4. So, I went into Recovery and selected "Recover System" foolishly.
    5. It then sort of locked up as above.
    6. I held the + button for over 10 seconds while booting up but it wouldnt change to 192.168.81.1
    7. By this time, support responded and said they had copied the backups to the new device
    8. I tried resetting a few times, but it kept telling me 'Refused to connect'.
    9. Support suggested holding the + button for 20secs.  That worked and I am back on, everything is working again.

    Some takeaways from this.

    1. The manual for HCL doesnt mention a time, the one for HC2 implies 10seconds, which is what I was doing.  But it needs more like 20seconds to reset its IP
    2. Buggered if I know why it goes into brick mode.  I can see its ip address, but it wont talk at any ipaddress, until reset as above.
    3. Perhaps my previous HCL is not dead, I will try to recover it.
    4. Everyone keeps talking about Fibaro Finder.  It only works for me once in 5 tries.  I have HC3 on as well, it almost never finds that.  Maybe there is some issue with Windows 10.  I have 3 versions of FF, two crash, and one works sometimes.  So, I use the router to spot it.
