Bryan , what do you think, alright to use your driver now( no disrespect) or should I wait as I see you've been updating on regular basis

I've been running them since day 1 .. no issues the changes have been very minor and not affecting the functionality or performance.. I have 4 of these in active use..

Are the settings in your driver the same default settings as Gocontrol factory settings?

Yes.. But once you hit configure.. It will poll the settings that are currently programmed on the device and update the preferences in the driver to match the device

I thought i saw filter change at 4000 where i had 300 and thats what made me question settings.

Buy the way how do you reset filter countdown or does it do it automatically once the hours set is reached. Thanks!

Filter change happens when max hours is reached.. Can be reset on the device or in the driver through the resetFilter command /button
