Re: Download Clock Issue

I’m pretty sure that doesn’t clear the logger memory, but the manual presumably has instructions. Nothing you do to Cumulus is going to affect the logger.

Re: Download Clock Issue

It’s just reporting the time stamps from the logger entries that the station is sending. You could try clearing the logger, perhaps.

Re: How to delete all data only for 2018?

Stop Cumulus, delete all of the 2018 monthly log files, edit dayfile.txt to remove all the 2018 entries, then use the all-time and all-time monthly record editors to recreate the all-time records (if required).

Re: Downgrade to Cumulus 1?

MX stores its data in the same files as Cumulus 1. The only other things I can think of at the moment which might cause an issue if going back to 1.9.4 are dates in .ini files, as I have changed a few to ISO format, but in theory 1.9.4 (or actually the system/library routines used by it) ought to be...

Re: Cumulus 1 to Cumulus MX Davis Vantage Pro2 Cannot Connect

Cumulus opens the port with a baud rate of 19200 bps but the system software is saying that the max your serial port can go is 10751. That sounds spurious and it probably needs setting correctly somehow - don’t know how you do that I’m afraid, Google may help.

Re: 1st Installation will not run........

That error usually occurs if you are not running MX as administrator (from the right click menu or from an administrator command window).

Re: New Hardware - no Dashboard but updates working??

If the dashboard, now, and gauges pages aren’t working but everything else is, then you have an issue with the websockets protocol, as mentioned in the MX FAQ post. You can switch those pages to ‘ajax’ if required.

Akamai is a Content Delivery Network. It’s quite possible that USGS use it for their web services.

Re: CumulusMX: how to correct wrong rainfall data ?

Edit daily totals in dayfile.txt with Cumulus stopped. If you have edited correctly, monthly and annual totals will be correct when you start Cumulus - if not, you have some other problem.

Lots of information about this in the FAQ and wiki.

It could be trying to upload the realtimegauges.txt file - look for the setting and turn it off.

I don’t know much about the WMR89, but one thing I do know is that it doesn’t work with Cumulus, if that matters to you.

Re: (error ) fatal unhandled enhandled exception

I’m pretty sure Mono 2 is too old, it has too much missing. 3.2.8 normally works, so your best approach is probably to try to get that working - by posting information here if required.

Re: Cumulus start up problems/help on Windows 10

As I said earlier, just as with Cumulus 1, Cumulus MX is no longer able to obtain authentication keys for Twitter. So, yes, you may as well disable Twitter in MX. I can’t think of any way that having Twitter enabled would cause MX to be unable to read data from the station, so there must be some oth...
