Re: WH1081 USB connection fault has developed

Hi,
If you're interested, I've just bought a job lot of 25 each of the diodes (cheapest way I could find to get hold of them) so that I can do the mod; so if you want to get hold of these components, let me know and I can fire a couple off to you.

Re: Problems with station communication: USB locks up comple

Greetings one and all ... This IS an issue that I can identify with as it DID happen to me from the outset of installing my Fine Offset based station. The 'fix' for this which is supported in the Cumulus software settings, "Synchronise Fine Offset Reads" does appear to work as since I selected this ...

Re: WH1081 USB connection fault has developed

After 9 months of use the receiving station has developed what appears to be a connection/reset problem. Whilst connected to my PC the WH1081 started issuing a single bleep at intervals and losing time/date info, transmitter received info, and generally behaving like a HAL 9000 on a bad day. I have...

Re: A novel real-time gauge display

As an only occasional visitor to the forum I'd be interested in integrating these into a web page so can you tell me where/how one can obtain a copy of the scripts/codes etc ? See the first post in the thread: "NB: This is simply a live demonstration for now and not a distributable download." I kno...

Re: Windows 7 Taskbar Notification Area Icons ...

Hi, Thanks for the response. Well, that's part of the trouble ... once Cumulus has started, there's no way to access the program. I have to go to the task manager, then kill the cumulus.exe and reboot. However, when it's running, my web page which I've setup reads/receives the data updates etc and u...

Re: Windows 7 Taskbar Notification Area Icons ...

Hi, I wasn't asking you to change any code ... I was simply curious as to why it used to display in the task bar then for no apparent reason it now won't show. When I was trying to get it to work again last night, I did get an error which said that the icon was no longer available ... so who knows; ...

Re: Cumulus program has stopped working (Windows 7 PC)

See the FAQ: http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#Cumulus_locks_up_when_it_starts_and_I_have_to_use_the_task_manager_to_kill_it The terse 'no response' message is telling you that your station isn't responding. Not being able to do anything with Cumulus subsequently is a bug which I fixed in 1.9.4. If ...

Greetings one and all, Don't know if anyone can help but I seem to have developed a serious 'issue' with running Cumulus (last stable version available) on my Windows 7 (64bit) PC. In short, when I open the program, it simple freezes and the little red error icon glows. Then it simple defies all att...

Re: N96FY Screen Readings Disappear

Greetings, I'm using the N96GY system and had a similar 'issue'. Turned out that the batteries in the USB/Wireless screen were a bit low (rechargeables). I charged them up to full capacity but they soon gave out again. Seems that the electronics in these units is quite sensitive to even small drops ...

Happily now resolved with fresh batteries. However, over the ...
