Re: Cumulus, No data on Cumulus homepage

Random thoughts...

have you switched the USB port into serial mode in weatherlink?
Edit: ah, you are using a serial USB adapter, so the envoy is serial then?

Your ISS is definitely set to station id 1?

Post your Cumulus diags folder so we can take a look.

Re: New To Cumulus - Trying to get a VP2 to work on WU

WU is as WU does :roll:
Looks like they may be changing over then, old stations using one method and new another, and neither working properly :groan:

IIRC, it is your WU user password, not the station key you need to input into Cumulus.

Re: Cumulusmx does not recognize station wh1080

Is this correct? Directory=PWS/realtime.txt For a start it has a filename on the end, it is not a path. When you log in to FTP using FileZilla, what directory are you in? And what path do you have to enter to get to the PWS directory? That is what you need to put into Cumulus in that field. This one...

I don't know the set up you have, but the Davis range have their pressure sensors in the
console/receiver.

The Fine Offset pressure sensor is also in console. You had the wrong part replaced.

Re: Struggling with SFTP

Instead of, and as well as ;) If you your server is using SFTP which Cumulus doesn't support you will have to do the uploads via an external script, the processing is still done by Cumulus.

Re: Finally moved to a decent station.

Well done, yes the solar and UV sensors are a bit pricey to say the least. I made my own, not quite up to the Davis standards and calibration is a bit finger in the air and compare against expected values, but for about £25 for both solar and UV I'm happy enough!

Re: Downgrade to Cumulus 1?

If your locale remains the same the data should be compatible. I have moved my data files from my pi to my laptop to edit them in C1, then moved them back to CMX on the pi without any problem.

The cumulus.ini requires a bit more work as some settings change between versions.

Re: Windows 10 Drivers Problems

Sorry to be pessimistic, but you will find quite a few threads where Fine Offset consoles suddenly get massive pressure offsets after a restart. Try changing drivers but I don't think it will make any difference. Once they get in that state there doesn't seem to be any going back. When mine did it I...
