Re: Problem downloading win new PC

If it's a completely new installation, it doesn't download 'old' data from the station, it starts recording from the point at which you first run it (as covered in the FAQ). Or perhaps I am misunderstanding what you are saying?

Re: Not Posting on Twitter

If you already have Cumulus configured to upload to a web site, you shouldn't need to do anything else. If you're not already uploading any files, you probably just need to tick 'auto update' so that it actually does some web file processing.

Yes, both Weatherlink and Cumuus download data from the logger.

Re: USB stop responding

You'll always get lots of messages of that kind while reading data from this type of station because of the way MX reads the data; they are not indications of a problem and don't help with diagnosing the problem, unfortunately.

It doesn't create a file, it just stores the processed text internally.

Could perhaps be a permissions problem with the Cumulus folder(s).

Re: Weather Underground not updating

WU is saying this: 2018-08-15 19:00:00.904 WU Response: Unauthorized: unauthorized So you're probably supplying an incorrect password or station ID. Make sure you supply your station ID in upper case, and you have the password for your station rather than your WU login. 'Unusual' characters in the s...

Re: Rainfall error. Can't open Cumulus. Can't open Diags

I can't be of much help, I'm afraid, without anything to go on. What happens when you try to start it - any error messages anywhere? Are you sure it isn't already running? Have you tried rebooting your PC?

Re: Gaps in apps.weathercloud plots

Any errors when uploading to weathercloud should get logged to the diags file, and if you turn on debug logging, each update should get logged (unless I'm misremembering).

Re: Rainfall error. Can't open Cumulus. Can't open Diags

The files in the zip you've attached are all very old, so aren't any help. The best thing to do would be to delete all of those files and then start Cumulus. After it's been running for a while, zip up the diags folder and attach it to another post.

Re: Weather Underground not updating

Did you restart MX after enabling WU?

If that doesn't help, turn off rapid fire and turn on debug logging, so that the diags files will show something.

I have changed to logging interval in CumulusMX to that of tha Davies Vantage station, and I have also looked through the FAQ but couldn't see where CumulusMX could be forced to read the Davies logger reading http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#On_restarting_Cumulus.2C_it_did_not_successfully_read_all...

Re: Can CumulusMX catchup

Yes, it's described in the main Cumulus FAQ. One reason that it may not have been able to download the data would be if you have the Davis logger interval and the Cumulus logging interval set to different values. This is also described in the documentation.
