Unfortunately, the Tellstick NET is a completely different kettle of fish. It is set up to communicate via their servers only. Erijo has written a great python wrapper for it. If I used it, there wouldn't be much of a benefit as Tellprox would be communicating via the Telldus servers still. Unless you can think of a benefit, I don't think anyone would have a use for it?

I understand that there is a custom firmware that can be flashed which permits Tellstick Net to communicate with a local live server, instead of their cloud. Is in Telldus Doxygen, if I recall right. I wonder if that could be an answer to this question.

I do not own a Tellstick Live, so would be unable to get directly involved but would be happy to collaborate with anyone wishing to take this on.

Does anybody know a easy way to send every command twice to my devices?

Many of my devices only react if the command comes a second time.

I´m using Tellprox on my pi.

Thanks a lot

'Retries' are now implemented. I have not added it to the config screen as I plan on overhauling it fairly soon. Get latest from git, run it up and then:
1. Browse to API
2. Select 'config' and 'set'
3. Type 'retries' and set the value as desired.
4. Press Post

I'm fairly new to python and the setup.py process so there might be a dependency of two missing. I'm happy to help fix any problems. Unfortunately it does not support scheduling or events at the moment. It supports device and sensors at the moment
is it possible to get it to autostart when i restart the computer?

i also have another problem,

i use the tellprox with remotestick, it works just fine exept one thing, i usually have the remotestick on/off and temp widgets on my homescreen/tablet, but after about 10-15 minutes the on/off widget turns blank and says loading, but the temp sensor widget works just fine, i guess that the on/off widget needs to refreshed like the temp sensors when they uppgrade the temperatur.
is there a way to do this?

Are you running on windows? I haven't written anything specific as it would require a solution for each OS. In Windows, my very brief solution is to create a text file (with extension .bat) containing
cd G:\GitHub\tellprox
python -m tellprox
I then create a shortcut in the startup folder:
C:\Users\*user*\appdata\roaming\Microsoft\windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

To be done properly it should really run as a Windows service, which I don't have time to look into at the moment.

Unfortunately I do not have any temperature devices to allow me to recreate this scenario. If you could get a log file I should be able to help I hope. It might be best to talk to the developer of remotestick to see if he can help you with them.

I am not actively developing it, but still use it so will work on something if I need it or an important change needed/requested. The code is open source so if you can find anyone who can contribute, they are welcome to suggest patches or fork it.

I am willing to sponsor a Tellstick NET device if you can manage to have a "Live" service installed on a Synology NAS, even via Docker.
