Somfy RTS - some blinds don't fully open

#1 Post by GibsonLP » 19 Aug 2019, 14:32

Hello.
I have assembled my own kit purchased from nodo shop.
Everything worked pretty smoothly. I even added my first curtain and it works really well.

I tried adding 2 more curtains and this is where things started becoming weird.
No matter what I do the curtains won't fully open. I can send the down command multiple times, it will eventually reach the bottom but will not accept the up command anymore.
Using the original remote works fine.
Additionally, and I can't understand how can this happen: When the blind goes down (or up) using the commands from rflink - the "sound" is different, a bit more mellow and not as strong as the sounds it makes when using the remote.

If this means anything: The 1st curtain has a single channel remote, the other curtains have multiple channels remotes. What I did:
1. Changed the channel setting to the specific curtain on the remote
2. Pressed the pairing button on the remote for ~3 seconds. heard the curtain goes down and up and released the pairing button
3. Immediately sent the pairing command: 10;RTS;424240;4240;0;PAIR;
4. Heard the curtain goes up and down
6. Issued a down command: 10;RTS;424240;0;DOWN
7. Got 20;58;OK;
8. Heard the curtain goes down for ~1-2 seconds and then stopping. Again - it made a completely different noise when going down.
9. 10;RTSSHOW shows this:
RTS Record: 0 Address: 424240 RC: 4241
RTS Record: 1 Address: 01FFFF RC: 0416
RTS Record: 2 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 3 Address: 02FFFF RC: 0424
RTS Record: 4 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 5 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 6 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 7 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 8 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 9 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 10 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 11 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 12 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 13 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 14 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
RTS Record: 15 Address: FFFFFF RC: FFFF
#3 is the one that works, 1 & 2 don't work.

Any advice would be appreciated, I have a full log of the entire session if needed.
Thanks.

Ok,
So it seems that the remote is controlling the tilt function of this engine instead of the up/down function.

Is there any debug information that would help fix that? Really upsetting as it means that this won't work with these engines.

Thanks.
