I have an all-RF system here using an RF Processor HRP5-120 and numerous dimmers, table top dimmers and keypads, two STRD see-touch keypads, and two hybrid repeaters. So long as I have uploaded a program without problems, the system works flawlessly. My problem is that, every time I make a change in the program or add a device, I have numerous problems uploading the new program. [I am using HW Illumination v1.65.]
Most every time I upload, the program reports that some of the devices failed to be uploaded to. The particular devices that did not receive the upload change on each retry. I always check that I want to upload only to RF devices for which the program changed, but the devices that fail the upload are not those which changed in the program.
I initially suspected the repeaters, but often the devices that failed are within a few feet of the HRP5 processor and remote (about 30 feet) from the nearest repeater. The first repeater is about 30 feet from the processor and the second repeater is another 20 feet from that one. I should note that sometimes one or both of the repeaters show their 'status' and 'test' LEDs blinking alternately. This does not happen every time. If I cycle the power to the repeater it stops the alternate blinking. [BTW, I've checked the revision numbers of the repeaters and neither is in the group which suffer from the 'ping-pong' malady, and anyway that problem has different LEDs blinking.]
My current "solution" is to repeat and repeat (and repeat) the upload until by chance it happens without errors. Then the system is up and running and works perfectly.
Of course, I'd like to solve the problem completely, but one question is: if only a single unit fails to receive the upload, is there some way I can definitely restrict the device upload that that single device?
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
