DateTime Formatting Bug?


I’m currently writing this in the message section of a standard vera alert notification: {DateTime(CurrentTime,%A %B %d, %Y at %H:%M)}
However, when I save the scene, run it, it says this, literally: {DateTime(CurrentTime, f i, d at m:>)}

When I go back in and check the scene, it looks like: {DateTime(CurrentTime, f i, d at m:>)}

{DateTime(CurrentTime %H:%M)} turns into {DateTime(CurrentTime s:h)}

I am on firmware version 1.7.3015 with VeraPlus. The weirdest thing is that I have this working on another scene, but I’m too afraid to start editing it because I may be in the same boat after I tinker with it. This all started a few days ago when I removed a little bit of text from the alert and saved.

Any thoughts?

I updated to the latest firmware. Still have the same issue. Now when I go to create a new scene with this DateTime format string in it, they don’t even show up on the scenes tab.

When I entered this into a vera alert notification: {tone:2}{BGColor:Green}Welcome home, Nathaniel. The local time is {DateTime(CurrentTime %H)}

This is what I got when I tailed /var/log/cmh/LuaUPnP.log:

Richard, are you alive, buddy? Got any words of wisdom for me?

I entered your time strings into “Send Alert Now” from Vera Alerts … all worked as expected.

The Send now function it works fine, Richard. Try creating a scene with it.

Richard, try creating an actual scene with it. It works fine in the “Send Alert Now,” but not in scenes.
