You need two things to fix this: 1) https://i5.wal.co/asr/55579b2e-2b74-4eef-8f50-0616f5a9f247_1.e9634818356c77c595cda9a579ef3c3d.jpeg?odnWidth=180&odnHeight=180&odnBg=ffffff This is where you need to house the Fine Offset transmitter and receiver. 2) Then take a read here https://wiki.weatherduino...

Re: That old chestnut ... Fine Offset 'USB Lockup' !!!

Agreed! But like every thing else in life, I hate being had over... esp by our cousins from the other side of the planet!

Re: That old chestnut ... Fine Offset 'USB Lockup' !!!

Have you tried dismantling and re-soldering the USB Socket in the Console? Hi, Thanks for the input. As far as I am aware, this whole nonsense revolves around a change that was made some time back to the chip set that the consoles were and are now using ... I may be wrong, but that is my understand...

Re: That old chestnut ... Fine Offset 'USB Lockup' !!!

Thanks for taking the time to contribute. No, ticking and unticking the box has, as far as I can make out, little or no difference to the frequency of the lockup. The problem is, that the 'frequency' is random. Nothing shows up in the debug file. :(( ... the debug file itself isn't now showing eithe...

That old chestnut ... Fine Offset 'USB Lockup' !!!

Greetings one and all, Apologies in advance for raising this old chestnut AGAIN ... but the Fine Offset 'USB Lockup' issue is driving me to distraction! I'm currently running 'Cumulus MX 3.0.0 b3050' and in the Station Settings > Options > Synchronise Fine Offset reads (Work around for Fine Offset c...

'Well, now running v3050 and even though the 'Synchronise Fine Offset reads' in the Station Settings is ticked, it definitely doesn't produce the desired 'Work around for Fine Offset console USB lockup problem' ... after tinkering with the settings for weeks, I've finally decided to throw in the tow...

Re: Upgrading to v3047 from v3043 ...

Alas, my hopes have been dashed as the 'Fine Offset USB lockup' continues. I've tried adjusting the upload intervals and ticking the 'Synchronise Fine Offset reads' option, but it hasn't thus far been successful in solving this tedious problem. I've even switched to a mini pc with a faster CPU which...

Re: BT's Global Sager Weathercaster PHP Scripts For Cumulus

Greetings, Looking for a bit of input/help on this one please ... I've installed/incorporated the BT-Sager script into the Cumulus web output and it seems to be working very well with quite accurate forecasts; all be it that our local weather here in our region of Spain IS VERY localised. https://dr...

Re: Upgrading to v3047 from v3043 ...

Even though I always had the "Synchronise Fine Offset reads" check box ticked, the software/station was always prone to the dreaded USB Lockout; hanging several times each week despite tinkering with the settings as suggested in several posts on the forum. However, since switching to v3047, so far, ...

Re: Upgrading to v3047 from v3043 ...

3046 and 3047 detail the files that have changed in the posts announcing the releases. FWIW it might be worth just copying your data folder, your web folder and your Cumulus.ini file to a safe place and then removing your exisiting installation (or just move it) and make a fresh install and copy ba...

Upgrading to v3047 from v3043 ...

Greetings to one and all, I've just downloaded the latest version of MX (v3047). Before I dive in and update, can anyone please tell exactly which files have changed as I don't want to lose the modifications which I've made to the web site interface and the additional BT's Global Sager Weathercaster...

Re: BT's Global Sager Weathercaster PHP Scripts For Cumulus

Yes, the secure server change in the web address was the culprit ... change made, and now it's all working again.
Thanks fly out to 'beteljuice' for the input :clap:

Re: BT's Global Sager Weathercaster PHP Scripts For Cumulus

Hi, Mine's been like that too for a couple of days. I thought it was because our local airport has now closed and revert to sole use by the Spanish Airforce and so now doesn't have an ICAO code. I edited the code in the php file to use the code for our new regional airport, but it didn't make any di...

From Cumulus MX Announcements It is now possible to override the default port for the websocket server, by passing a -wsport parameter to the program, e.g.: sudo mono CumulusMX.exe -wsport 8888 This is useful if port 8002 is already in use, or you want to run multiple instances of MX on the same ma...
