Linux can NOT control my new Hottop B-2K+ (SOLVED)
rgrosz78
It appears that I was incorrect about Linux working with my new Hottop. It reads the values FROM the roaster with no problem. When I manually change the fan and heat settings using the dials on the Hottop control panel, they appear correctly in the artisan graph.

But I can't change the fan and heat settings using the sliders I set up in the artisan software. I have gone through all the installation instructions numerous times. When I click on the blue "Control" button, it seems to have no effect.

I have also read the message threads from others with similar problems. I went to the store today and bought a new USB cable - but it did not change anything. For now, I am limited to doing manual roasts on the new Hottop.

I exchanged emails with Randy at Hottop USA. I missed the importance of this sentence near the end of the setup instructions at the artisan blog post:

"Control mode is only active in super-user mode that can be activated by a right-click on the Timer LCD in the right upper corner of the main window."
