    Sunshine -169.40 hrs

    Post by Chapel » Thu 18 Jul 2019 8:10 am

    We had a couple of brief power cuts this morning so forcing a restart (Raspberry Pi3B+ and Instromet system) Sometime later I noticed the sunshine hours show -169.40.

    Can anyone think of a reason for this and is there a way to manually edit this to reduce the weeks worth of negative hours now showing?

    EDIT - The console shows the following and I must admit, I have not noticed the last update showing in this format:

    It's a bit late now, but did you get this sorted out?

    OK, so if you fix that line by removing the leading white space, do you get any more errors?

    The error seemed to clear itself over a couple of days, in fact after another bout of power cuts. I will delete the white space now you have reminded me!
