I am using  Comfigurator 3.8.10 with Ultra (7.057) and UCM/Cbus2 (7.050).
I have setup mapped Comfort Registers to CBUS Lighting Application and all works well, changes made on the CBUS side immediately updates the relevant Counter or Flag.
Doing the same on the Enable Control Application does not seem to update the relevant Counter. I even tried Trigger Control and got the same results as Enable.
Any ideas?

It also doesn't work from Comfort to Cbus. Using the direct C!nn method does not update Cbus Enable Control Group.

Do you think the comfort counters should update the enable and Trigger groups?

What application for this do you have?

I see my topic heading might not reflect what I wanted to do.  

I would like the status of the Enable Group (in CBUS) to be reflected in the mapped  Counter in Comfort. Currently, even if I map the Enable Group to a counter in the UCM/Cbus, when the status of the Enable Group changes in CBUS, the Counter is never updated. 

What am I using this for?

 I have occupancy sensor auto lighting all over the house, and I can turn this ON or OFF via an Enable Group. I want to add functionality in a Comfort Control Menu (in turn to the iPAD & iPhone APP), to see the status and turn this feature ON and OFF. I can turn this ON/OFF via Responses, the only thing missing is the correct status in Comfort. 


 For now (as a temporary solution) I set and clear a Comfort flag accordingly and that gives a status which would not be correct if Enable Group is changed within CBUS.

The enable and trigger group mapping to Counters should work. We will check again and update

We have found a bug in UCM/Cbus2 that Enable and Trigger applications do not activate the mapped counter

This should be fixed in UCM/Cbus2 v7.053
http://www.cytech.biz/product_details.php?item_id=410


Please test it if you are affacted by this bug


By the way changing the maped Counter value in Comfort will send a message to  the Trigger group, but not the Enable group

UCM/Cbus2 7.054 now allows Changes in the mapped Enable counter to change the Cbus enable group and allows commands to the Enable and Trigger groups via Response wizard to update the mapped Comfort counters

For Howers original problem, the Cbus enable group will update the mapped counter and the Counter will update the enable group, ie 2 way operation
