    Hey, I am new...

    running Hyperion V1.03.2 with Hue support.

    No matter how much Less I configure in Hyperion.config.json, these get selected starting with ID 10..
    so here is how the log output looks:

    EFFECTENGINE INFO: Initializing Python interpreter
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=6): found light with id 10.
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=6): found light with id 13.
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=6): found light with id 14.
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=6): found light with id 15.
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=6): found light with id 16.
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=6): found light with id 17.
    INFO: Hyperion started and initialised

    Problem, how do I get ids starting with id 1....?

    When I specify "lightIds" : [2,3,4] in the device section this gets ignored.

    When I specify more lightids than 3 I get a "segmentation fault" error and hyperion Stopps..

    any idea?

    Hello there,

    Have you ever solved your problem?

    I installed Hyperion on RPi for use with Hue too, and have the same issue. No matter what "lightIds" I put in the config, I always end up with:
    Code:
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=2): found light with id 1.
    LedDevicePhilipsHue::saveStates(nLights=2): found light with id 10.
    Weird considering that I have more than two Hue devices connected to my bridge.

    Thanks in advance if you (or anybody) found a fix!

    OK I actually got it...

    Since I only wanted to use two bulbs, I set only two leds in the "LED Configuration". And this determines how many Hue devices Hyperion is going to look for.
    I changed the LED Configuration in order to have the same number as my Hue devices, and it found all of them.
    Be careful though, if you set more leds than the number of Hue devices connected to your bridge, the service will fail to start.

    Hope it'll help some of you!
