Re: CUtils 6.8.1

Fixed,

Muggen's File Sync utility didn't copy over the changed earlier version of Renci.SshNet.dll on the Win install & then he compared files on the Pi install......

Must have been getting to close to Beer O'Clock.

Re: Project Skip Find Web/weather Cam

It comprises of 3 Swann cameras and an IQ? camera, a Vivotek VS3100 video server and a Norbain VQLC box. I've rigged it all up in the garage and all cameras show up on a TV which was a good start I'm using iSpy/Agent here on mine. But sounds like your camerars are primarily connected to an NVR........

Re: MXdiags - file encoding

Sounds like something weird going on within your OS. Every editor I've opened on my Pi's has been fine with all files. Geany is my main go to editor on the Pi, only using Nano for the likes of Crontabs. Sudo Geany [Filename] works for root edits. If you have a spare card or another Pi, you could tes...

Re: Ecowitt Api Historic Data

You would need to go back to a backup from before "the gap". I "Thought" I tried my midnight one before the 9:00 last update issue, but maybe the Linux archiver didn't overwrite as expected. Success!!! I used a backup from before 'the gap' AND deleted my Mar22log.txt file (backe...

Re: How is your external Webcam powered?

My two oldest cameras aren't very high Res (720x???), but still produce rather good images for website usage. Were originally 12V powered & over Wifi, but local congestion became painful. Then in turn the AC plug packs failed after about 4 years, so switched them to PoE with external power split...

You have the same error as @box was getting "API.GetHistoricData: Exception:" I have a new build to fix this. So I assume I can just keep letting things run for the time being & then when the next build is relaeased, revert to my 9:05am 15/03 data & then restart & let it all p...

Re: Ecowitt Api Historic Data

Strangely my Ecowitt MX install stopped logging at 9:00am Yesterday. At 9:05am a Cron Job shut it down & backed it up then Started it again. Didn't notice till around 4:00pm & at that point the Console showed no data. Could ping the GW1000 & a restart of MX made no difference. Didn't che...

Re: Ecowitt Api Historic Data

Ok, For those who are familiar with Task Scheduling, I've just found that I can have CMX Shutdown Graciously when I pull the power from my laptop. This would at least mean that MX would not be left open while the Laptop is in the Sleep State. The Trigger for the Scheduled Task is Event ID 105. Scree...

Re: Ecowitt Api Historic Data

From what I've found with WLL, with it's a test install on my laptop, is that Sleeping during a power failure is the issue. When Windows resumes, CMX receives data again & hence creates the gap. Not really a CMX issue as MX has no knowledge of it having been asleep for the matter of hours. I did...
