did something change with timers feeding macros since 4.1 i did the up date and the lights and control was fine but the macro that turns every on didn't fire not a big deal may have messed up the start of the macro turn it one and the end of day didn't run eater.

runing robo tank V1.0 pi3
Not im aware of , or intentional changes, but there could always be bugs. Im aware of couple of macro bugs. If you can share the details (or file a github bug) I can take a look
thank you for reporting back

OK

so I figured this out this morning for anyone that did the big jump 4.1 to 5.1

Timers running macros use to run the macro in reverse bottom to top in inverted command

example
I had a macro to tune my lights on

what I wanted
front light on
wait 1800 Sec
back light on

macro
read
back light off
wait 1800sec
front light off

this is how it ran for at least a year
it now runs the macro as forward so

what I wanted
front light on
wait 1800 Sec
back light on

macro
front light on
wait 1800 Sec
back light on

also have a bug report

turning to lights to manual and back to auto with the UI in English
the popup is in German

The validation/translation bug is fixed and will be released in 5.2. I know macro got some bugs, I'm trying to gather all the relevant ones and squash them one by one in next release, but not in 5.2. Theres already too many changes that got merged and should be released to avoid piling up all changes into a big one (which led to 5.1 :-( )

DUDDDDDEEE!!! I have been trying to figure this out for sooooo long. I was about to spend $$$ on a new router/modem to run a VPN server or something. I have gone down so many dead ended rabbit holes trying to figure this out for the last 6 months. This took 10 minutes and it WORKS. THANK YOU!
Thanks for the suggestion. Finally got the courage to try it and am very happy.

So my PiZero used to peg at about 2.5 for CPU with the VNC-Chromium with painful delay and horrible UI on the phone.

The Tailscale approach is barely above 1 CPU and UI is just like I am on my home network. Definitely a better way.

Hello, i am running reef pi 4,1 how can i upgrade to 5 via web interface? any special command or just click install. Never tried this way, thanks.
I know at 4.3 you can type the version number in the admin page and upgrade...

Back up your db.. and possibly use a different sd card of you can. For me I dont mind doing a rest as I improve on my past mistakes.

Fresh install.. Robs scripts works great.


Try that and then import you DB

I claim no responsablity for taking my advice but take all accolades if it works!
