    Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

    A quick post to say thanks for all of the info contained in this original (and updated) post as well as the many contributions in the discussion that followed. There has been some recent discussion on compatibilities with the various versions of the software used, so here is my experience. I did a c...

    MX with Weatherlink Live

    I noticed that WLL is now supported in MX. I know Davis finally published an API to access current conditions, but the last I remember hearing was the debate about access to archive data. Things like, is there local archive memory, is a pro subscription needed to download archive data, etc. So, can ...

    Re: Raspberry Pi: Long term reliability

    Thank you all for sharing your experiences with the Pi. I'll keep you all updated as I proceed with my own experience using one. I'm eager to ditch the old laptop I'm using for MX duties now.

    Regards,

    Raspberry Pi: Long term reliability

    I recently bought a Raspberry Pi and have started tinkering with it in a headless setup, remoting in via ssh or VNC with my Mac. I'll be trying my hand at getting MX up and running on it next, at first with a spare Envoy, but my goal would be to transition to the Pi as my main system. If those of yo...

    I didn't want to quote your original response to this thread to save space, but what you described sounds like a great plan Steve. I've actually been playing around coding a custom GUI with Python and Pygame lately that I want to use for a large LCD display in our office and had not even begun to co...

    Re: what if there was a faster update than 'real-time'

    Strictly speaking, you can get LOOPs faster than this. They seem to be available about every 2 secs or even more often, though it does depend on what else the console CPU is being asked to do and so 2 secs is a reasonable average figure. And the time to get a single LOOP via the DLL (at least for a...

    Re: what if there was a faster update than 'real-time'

    Only really relevant for Davis stations, but say you could get the wind speed and direction out of Cumulus as it is read from the station, so a 2.5 second update rate. What would be the best way of doing it? Write to a file and monitor for file changed? Write it to a network socket? COM? (A bit Win...

    I haven't posted on this forum in a long time. I need to replace my aging VP equipment and was pondering the serial vs usb question myself. Amazing that this post was at the top of the list when I logged in to do some research on the topic. I remember when the usb data logger was first released ther...

    Windows 7 and Weatherlink

    I just bought a new laptop and I'm getting my first experience with Windows 7. Until now I've been using XP. I really like Windows 7 so far, but when I tried to install Weatherlink, I noticed some strange differences compared to my experience with XP. Where are the station data folders going on the ...

    Of course I don't! :oops:
    That's why the 2 minute average wasn't working!

    You da man Steve! :clap:

    Thanks for the prompt help and for the new average wind speed feature.

    Am I doing this right?

    I don't seem to be able to get this to work correctly. Here is what I have done and the results I get. I have added the 'AvgSpeedMinutes=2' line to the .ini text file in the last line of the [Station] section using ver. 1.8.9 build 910. The average wind speed displayed is exactly the same as my othe...

    A question about 'AvgSpeedMinutes'

    Thanks for the new option for average speed Steve! :)

    I want to give it a try and I want to know what value to place in that variable. Do I enter the average speed interval in actual minutes, or is it a toggle (=0,=1) between 10 minute and 2 minute?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Re: Cumulus 1.8.8 and WeatherUnderground winds

    Steve, Thanks so much for the average wind selection option for the WU uploads! Like Brian I don't use the rapid fire mode, so an average wind is a much better representation of my current conditions. I was still using 1.8.7 because of the average wind capability, but now I'll upgrade to the new bet...
