New Vue?

Post by tomcatuk » Wed 05 Dec 2018 5:25 pm

Been running on the MX software for a while and just using it at home, logging in a couple of times a day to download from the Vue but noticed some serious drops for the dew point -46C is would the Vue be pass it sell by date now purchased late 2009, included a couple of graphs... to show the drops... do I need to invest in a new Vue...?

Sounds like the humidity sensor is on the way out?

Something definitely is wonder if you can get replacements and will they be as costly as a new Vue?
Thanks Mark.

Hi Dazza, thanks for the info, no I've never updated it but might give it a go, but don't think it will help as it was fine and working ok up till about must be about 3 months ago I noticed those strange readings, so took it all apart and shook out all the spiders, even had one in one of the wind cups it must have got dizzy :-) and several running round the circuit board, anyway put it all back together but still the same.... thanks again for the info... where you go for parts?
Regards Steve
