Re: New Record? Post here.

We tend to get more moorland fires than forest fires - not many real forests left. The fires were quite bad last year, but not much so far this year. With the moors being peat, the fire can burn down into the ground and be difficult to extinguish.

Re: Difference between "Windbearing" and "CurrWindBearing"

It's not a simple average, it's the result of a vector addition of all the individual reading vectors.

@water01 Yes, the MX changes only affect the JSON files.

Re: Server Generated Graphs for MX

Version 1.8 is now available for download - I've given it a "light" test as I don't really use these any more, and it appeared to work OK, removing UV from my solar graph.

Re: Server Generated Graphs for MX

A bug it is - the scripts do not take account of the new feature in 3.7.0 to disable some graphs.

Re: No synchro Cumulus MX

You also need to fix your dayfile.txt ...
Error on line 2 of dayfile.txt: Le format de la chaîne d'entrée est incorrect.

Re: No synchro Cumulus MX

Mystery - it looks like something went wrong in the console though. Perhaps a full power cycle of it may have helped - who knows!

Re: Difference between "Windbearing" and "CurrWindBearing"

Windbearing is the last instantaneous wind direction from the station.

CurrWindBearing is the average direction over the last 10 minutes (default) of all the speed/direction readings from the station (so 1 every 2.5 seconds for your Davis) using vector addition.

Re: NOAA reports

I'm not sure what is happening here. I'm not able to check the source code at the moment, but could you enable debug logging and generate a report again, then post the MXdiag log. A long shot but it may contain a bit more info.

Re: Rain difference in WU/Cumulus and VantageP2 Console

Another guess...
You have a rainfall multiplier set in offsets?

Re: FineOffset (WH1028) - Daily Graphs not showing and other quirks

It's a coincidence I think, the data parsing has not changed just the efficiency of reading and processing the data.

Re: Recovering MX properly from locale issues

Unfortunately mono uses its own hardcode locale settings and ignores the system values :( And yes the latest version of mono changed lots of locales to match the "official" definitions. Changing the locale you start CumulusMX with to one that uses your previous [.] and [:] separators sounds attracti...
