How many users?
I have two installations utilizing hybrid HAL/Cinemar systems. Hal is v 6, Main Lobby v 4.

Anyone else?

If so, what level of integration do you have?

Which sytem controls what?

What advantages do you see of each system separately and to the hybrid?

I presently use iPads to control most functions.

Re: How many users?
Sorry to reply with nothing to add, but I would love to integrate Main Lobby with Hal. I would love to see some sort of a "getting started" write-up to jump start my efforts. Does such a thing exist?

Re: How many users?
Yeah, I bought Main Lobby several years ago - was never able to successfully integrate Main Lobby with HAL. I know there was some add-on you had to download and install, but after that the instructions to do anything else related to integration with HAL didn't exist. Frustrating...

But hold the phone!! I've recently seen some of the work that's been going on to completely re-do the HALHomeNet interface, and from what I've seen I'm very impressed! Can't wait until that is released with a version of HAL, it looks very promising from a WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) - LOL!

I used to use this, but I just tried to use the newest hal.dll in MLServer. It loads up and pulls devices okay. However, it does't seem to actually CONTROL anything. Completely unable to turn devices on or off.

Re: How many users?

Back in version 6.1.15 we had to update the MLHAL.dll because of a conflict with a 3rd party control that was being used by MLServer. There was never any documentation produced for MLHAL since there were only 5 DIY customers using the dll. I can have one of our techs write up some simple instructions on how to use MLHAL and post it here. You are able to both control and get status with MLHAL. If anyone needs immediate assistance, you can always contact support and they can remote into your system and assist.
