Re: Low Dew Point / Humidity since latest release

No the readings are the same. It just seems bizarre that during the day the TD / humidity seems Ok but then it very quickly falls in the late afternoon / evening e.g. this evening TD fell from 10.7C at 17:11 L to 2.5 C at 1735L.

Re: Cumulus MX suddenly stopped running

Oh Hang on !!!
I've just changed the COM port in the Station Settings and it is now working.

That's great although I don't understand why it should randomly change in the first place to stop it working.

Anyway I'm OK now so thanks for your help and suggestions

Re: Cumulus MX suddenly stopped running

It appears that Cumulus MX.exe does not fully open / run. When i run it I get as shown below. It then just stops. In the past it has downloaded data and then the last line is something along the lines of 'Running as normal' Current culture: English (United Kingdom) Cumulus MX v.3.5.4 build 3075 Stat...

Cumulus MX suddenly stopped running

I was running v3074 and it was working fine today. Came back to check it and it appeared to have stopped for no apparent reason. Closed it and restarted again but it gets to the line 'Type CNTL-C to terminate' and just stops. Uploaded V3075 to see if it made any difference but does the same. Any sug...

Re: Cumulux MX on Windows data errors at start up

It doesn't seem to matter whether there is no rain or rain before I start Cumulus as it always seems to add an amount. To begin with it was 0.6mm but recently has increased and today was 1.2 mm. Anyway I have attached the MXDIAGS zip file

Re: Update from Cumulus 1 issues

OK,
Excuse my lack of knowledge on this.
In Cumulus I am currently using Com port 3 (see attachment of station settings).
Are you suggesting therefore I set the Com port to 3. If so where and how do I do that?
