Thank you.

Edit @ 6:13 PM: So after running for a few hours and sending data to several external sites as a test, I noticed that the barometric pressure is not being reported to APRS. Possibly a bug or maybe just not implemented? Just passing along another observation.

Also I checked the MXDiag error file and it was the exact System.Timers.Timer:set_Interval double issue, float should definitely fix it. Should have noticed that myself, lol.

Edit @ 12:49 AM:: Ran Cumulus 1.9.4 1099 for a few hours and yea theres something wrong with the barometric pressure stuff for APRS for MX, works fine in regular Cumulus.
Double checked the way EasyWeather.dat is made and there's nothing I can find, it follows the input value format with no more than two decimal values for the rain value, etc. Again just reporting info as I find it.

Steve, Having now had a very successful few weeks running Cumulus MX with no problems at all, WMR200, Windows 10 & Wunderground, (after a torrid time with Cumulus to begin with), I remain a very happy user! I did mention that I use an extra sensor in the greenhouse once before and having had a while to get used to MX then my wishlist, (restricted to missing versus Cumulus), would be to have a chart for the extra sensor for the last 6/12/24 hours as you have for the other functions, and some more easily available current value for the extra sensor, either on the dashboard or if a lot easier, (and avoiding messing up the dashboard), then on the 'now' tab. Thanks for steering me down the MX route though :)

Editing posts is not a good idea if you want me to see what you have posted; I had already read your post, and only saw your edits because of the new post in this thread. Could you also please report problems in a new thread rather than here. This thread already has too much in it which is unrelated to the subject.

I only ask this because it makes things easier for me.

The problem with the APRS pressure will be because APRS requires altimeter pressure, and it probably isn't setting that variable for the easyweather.dat station type - I'll fix that in the next build.

I'll lock this thread now, I think everything from Cumulus 1 has been mentioned, and I am slowly working my way through adding them to MX. Requests for additional items (i.e. those things which are not in Cumulus 1) should go in the Enhancement Requests section, and I will hopefully look at them eventually, when I get chance.
