Catching up does not work

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

normally it catches up, this time it did not. So what can be the cause for this?
I have the same problem, and I have a very short update interval as well. I think it's a problem where the response from the VP when you request a large number of records tends to time out. Mark Crossley, who is currently maintaining Cumulus, kindly included a longer timeout in an alpha version of the program and gave me the alpha version to try. It has solved the problem for me.
I have the same problem. I thought it was because my new pc is not very good.

The pc is turned off during the night, and when I recover the data in the mornings, sometimes it is not able to collect the data from my Davis Vantage Vue.

Waiting for the new version of cumulus MX

I'll look at unpicking the updated serial code from the other Alpha code I am working on and make a new release of MX to fix this....

I have many problems with catching up. Could I also try the Alpha version, please?

OK I have stripped out the new serial code from the other Alpha code, I now need volunteers for beta testing a new release.
You must have a Davis VP2 with either a serial or USB logger (Davis or clone)
Please PM me with your email address to be included.
