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.

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: 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...
