Re: BT's Global Zambretti Weathercard Forecaster PHP Scripts

@gosigweather

It's been awhile but I came up with a formula for the forecast letters. If you click on the red forecast, you can see the settings currently being used to determine it which you should be able to match. Remember though this is the Weathercard and not the circular Zambretti dial.

Re: 6250 Vantage Vue Temperature Sensor

After reading bad reports about Davis Customer Service, I decided to instead go with a Ambient Weather WS-2095 which I can make a custom FARS for when I have more time.

Re: Dead wh-2080

Probably 433 MHz, but it could be 915 MHz there. Hard to tell without markings. Do you have any paperwork or the box it came in?

Enable Adjustment Mode On 2080 Display

I have a 2080 display stamped Weatherwise and another from Ambient Weather. If I hold the On/Off button for 8 seconds on the Ambient, I can enter adjustment mode. This appears to not be enabled on the Weatherwise display. Does anyone know how to enable it?

6250 Vantage Vue Temperature Sensor

Is the temp sensor movable to where it could be placed inside of a homemade FARS? I need to mount it a good 20-30 feet away from the main outdoor unit.

Re: The future of Cumulus?

I really appreciate all the effort you've put into this project; but...: The future of Cumulus as I see it is either: 1. Open source it 2. Release more often 3.

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

I don't know if Microsoft changed something or what, but I still cannot figure this issue out. The weather station and CumulusMX both work fine in Ubuntu MATE Linux. No issues of it having erratic readings at all. I just reinstalled Windows 10 again to verify without adding any other optional periph...

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

Different USB ports didn't help either. I guess I am stuck using Cumulus MX in Linux.

That setting made no difference. It just did it again :(

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

I'll give the USB power setting a shot, but I did reinstall Windows 10 from scratch yesterday and I still have the issue. Here are the current diags attached. 23:25 in the last one was when it happened. The first two should be OK.

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

13:30 it said my pressure was 909.8 but that hurricane sure was not windy, lol. I might format drive and do the full install of Windows 10 since the Windows 7 license upgraded to a Windows 10 one. Diag attached if you want to see it. I also tried different USB ports before but that didn't solve it s...

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

Third one was from Linux but yes ran in Windows. I copied the data folder over from the Linux install to the Windows install then ran CMX in Windows. I'll keep an eye on it today as I have a few things I need to do in Windows. If there is an error, I'll report back. I wonder if an option to ignore b...

The first two were done from the backup you requested. The third was data from Linux. As far as I can tell, the Linux data looks fine. The two Window...
