Default CAPTURE_PRESET pdl?

Hello all,

the pdl for this is mentioned as either 2 or 8 but in the text (10.11.8) it mentiones that unused timing fields shall be set to 0.

Does this imply that the pdl is always 8?

Kidn regards

No, both PDL's are valid.

You might use 0x0000 in one of the timing fields if you have fade times, but no wait time.

Hello,

How does a controller figure out how mane scenes are available in a device?

This question also applies to some other commands - I suppose.

Kind regards

Unfortunately there's no standard way to determine the number of scenes a responder supports, other than getting a NACK when you try and use a scene that the responder doesn't support.

Eric is correct. I believe we have some new messages that extend this in the Dimmer PID's document we're currently working on that extend the capabilities of Presets.
