Possibly time setting

In my case, I observed a substantial number of multiple hour dropouts. They tended to start at a consistent time in the middle of the night. I eventually learned that was the time that Cumulus updated the console clock. The VP2 console is something of a one thing at a time beast, and I believe it is...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

Whatever is at the heart of it, I'd appreciate any suggestions of anything I can try as other than trying Cumulus MX [Cork Harbour / UTC+1] NNNN++++ I shall comment here as thread starter. I found that in my case activation of the Cumulus function which adjusts console clock to agree with the PC wa...

Re: Solar Data and "Max" Values

There been some nice curves in this thread recently concentrating on the match between some models and actual observed intraday variation. However with a few years experience here in Albuquerque, I think the more important model tracking error for Cumulus is seasonal rather than intraday. For those ...

Re: Upgrading Vue ISS to Vantage PRO2 PLUS

If you are using Cumulus to make your own web site, the template modifications required to get solar and UV reporting the way you like are rather more than just a box tick. But getting a Wunderground report to include them is pretty much just a matter of finding the boxes, and perhaps later adjustin...

Scheduled task works for me

Until recently I had my Cumulus installation running on a Windows 7 machine, and used a scheduled task to start it up. A few weeks ago I moved Cumulus to a Windows 10 machine, but did not get around to implementing the scheduled task revision to startup Cumulus. Unfortunately, this meant that when I...

Re: MX better regarding Davis reception

very many people are using MX for their production system. It appears to be as reliable as Cumulus 1 ... The main decision is whether you are happy with the different architecture of MX, and whether you can live without those facilities in Cumulus 1 yet to be added to MX. That adjusts my understand...

MX better regarding Davis reception

Above I mentioned that I had the impression MX might communicate with the Davis console enough differently from Cumulus1 to make a difference in my observations. In particular, I had the impression that Steve had ceased using the Davis DLL for at least some interactions, possibly including logger ca...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

I take it you moved back to cumulus v1.9.4 (1095) since your Website says different, or is this a different setup? I currently have two strings of hardware and software active. My published website remains on the same hardware and software it was running, while my new string I occasionally publish ...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

So here is the question set: which of these observations is normal, and which may I consider anomalous behavior of my setup? 1. Console displayed reception status switches to R almost immediately after Cumulus startup? 2. Reception statistics as displayed on the console diagnostic pages reset at Cu...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

Cumulus doesn't check for time at midnight; it is in the middle of it's end of day operations. The weather station however resets the receptions stats at that time. On my current suspicion that my primary problem is erratic recovery of reception after perfectly normal operations causing R status, i...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

there is a way on both versions using ClockSettingHour in the INI file. Has to be edited there directly while Cumulus isn't running. I searched all the (many) Cumulus .ini files looking for this parameter name. Not there, so obviously I have to add an entry. I was hoping to set it to 5:20 a.m., but...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

I've got a new string (Windows 10 PC I built within the last year, new logger, new console, fresh software installs) in the commissioning process. I'm carefully taking a step at a time, so don't have Cumulus installed yet, but regarded the time setting matter, I just performed an experiment. I had W...

Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

Background: For several years I have noticed intermittent reception problems logged on my setup, which had a Vantage Pro2 ISS received by an Envoy, linked to a PC by a USB WeatherLink logger, with Cumulus running 99% of the time and WeatherLink started up no less than once every ten days in order to...

Re: Replacement ISS, Still Getting Weird Readings

Could it be that you are receiving signals from a neighbor's unit? The thing to try to change the channel your ISS is transmitting on and check with you get something different receiving on that channel than on the one you're using. I myself had a mysterious problem from this cause when I first brou...
