Re: Cumulus PHP-GD Banner

I finally managed to get most background images to work if they had a JPG suffix when jpg or png did not! The size of the image seemed irrelevant.

Could it be that the image file name has a leading dot (.)?
Removing the dot also helped thanks.

Re: weather overlay

Hi, you could try downloading yawcam free software https://www.yawcam.com/. Assuming it is compatible with your webcam then details on creating the overlay are in this topic viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2914

Re: New hosting advice

Hi Andrew I changed my webhost late last year as I was dissatisfied with the website load times, despite good support their infrastructure was creaking.

Help! - VP2 not downloading after PC crash/restore

Following a complete hard disk failure a couple days ago, I have now ugraded to a SSD and restored the Cumulus MX program from Cloud backup.

Re: Sensor DVpro2

I would check the connections in the ISS first where the T/H sensor lead plugs in. If the readings fluctuate to high and low extremes over a couple days then I would suggest the sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced. Depending on the age of your VP2 it is an opportunituy to buy a later more accu...
