Ah ha! There is currently no decode of the Health data for Soil/Leaf transmitters in CMX. I'll have to add that for the next release! :bash:
Currently it is only decoding WLL and ISS health data

If you switch on debug and data logging, you should see a dump of the health values for each transmitter in the MXdiags log once every 15 minutes.

Could you send me the lines that include of the raw health JSON data from your log please, and I'll make sure it matches the documented values. Thanks.

Crikey, that's confused me even more!

I'm getting data for all of these:

Code: Select all

      <td class="text-left">RSSI</td>
      <td class="text-left">WiFi: <#DavisTxRssi> dB</td>
      <td class="text-left"><#DavisTxRssi tx=0> dB</td>
      <td class="text-left"><#DavisTxRssi tx=1> dB</td>
      <td class="text-left"><#DavisTxRssi tx=2> dB</td>
      <td class="text-left">WiFi: <#AirLinkWifiRssiOut> dB</td>
<#DavisTxRssi tx=0> must be the odd one out? What RSSI value is that for? I have it as the ISS lol

So where is the third transmitter data coming from? Or have I got it in the wrong columns?

My Firmware Version has now been updated.

Now the same level as you, but behind Mark etc...

Code: Select all

2022-01-08 13:01:33.534 WLL FW version = 2021-05-22
Not had a very good day today.
My USB Stick that was running CMX died and lost all my Data.

I had a backup from a few days ago, but changes I've made since have been lost :(

As far as I'm aware it does it when the Gods at Davis says push the update out...

I don't think you can do anything to update it. It just happens when they feel it should.

But I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

OK, back to basics. I thought you had three transmitters?
An ISS (2), and anny (1), and a soil/leaf (8)?

I need the bit of log for health data with data logging enabled so I can see the raw JSON - but if you are in recovery mode now!...

Yep - Exactly that, on those channels.

I've given up with Davis' customer services..

I had to wait two weeks to get a reply back to an email! The reply I get, is to instruct me to power cycle the WLL for 15 minutes, which is what I did when I first got it, and I told them that in the first email..

Either way, it makes zero difference, the firmware still doesn't upgrade, and health data on their bulletin board is still missing.

Davis are crap!

I'm still in the same boat as well.
The 1st Firmware Update applied by itself.

However the 2nd failed to update.

I've also E-mailed Davis, but I'm not holding my breath.

<#DavisTxRssi tx=0> is showing the WLL WiFi RSSI value.
OK, now we have <#DavisTxRssi tx=8> working, I just need to clarify one more thing..


<#DavisTxRssi tx=0> is the WLL WiFi RSSI?
<#DavisTxRssi tx=1> is the ISS RSSI?
<#DavisTxRssi tx=2> is my Wind tx RSSI?
<#DavisTxRssi tx=8> is my Soil tx RSSI?

What is <#DavisTxRssi>? I get 6 values altogether
