I've programmed a flow for turning on and off the TV using node-red-contrib-bravia. Since those nodes don't return a status change and this is a device that often is switched from it's remote, I implemented an automated check every minute. I don't like filling the network bandwith with pollings, but I didn't found any other way.
So every minute, an api call with a request for status is sent. As I don't want to needlessly refresh the dashboard and other interfaces every minute, i've put an rbe node at this output.
But the rbe doesn't pass any message, and as simple as it seems, I can see what's wrong.
So starting from TV off, status off been sent trough the rbe node, I turn the TV on manually. Afer a minute there's the poll and this message it's injected:
topic = "" msg.payload.status = "standby" (that was "active" a minute before)
But the rbe output debug node doesnt reply. Do I miss anything? Could be the topic being empty the cause?
