Re: Anyone running CumulusMX on RPi2 Ubuntu 16.04?

Thanks Guys. Yup tried Ubuntu / Jessie on another device (automation) and found Ubuntu heavier than Jessie and Jessie heavier than Wheezy. So thought about Jessie light. After the above chit chat might just leave CumulusMX at Wheezy for the time bean as it is working fine and I should leave well eno...

Re: Text file with tags and a calculation

Thank you Mark. So using the example (and I know I am wrong right now) it would be something like: <?php require_once("cumulusradio.php"); echo $time; echo "<br/>"; Echo "Current Radio Reception: " & "(($DavisTotalPacketsReceived/$DavisTotalPacketsMissed)+$Davi...

Text file with tags and a calculation

Can I build a simple status tag txt file with a calculation on it. Looking here to just add a percentage of Davis Vantage Pro 2 reception to the txt file. IE: Current file is: ( just call it radio dot text) Total Packets Received: <#DavisTotalPacketsReceived> • Total Packets Missed: <#DavisTotalPack...

Re: Time Lapse WeatherCam

Have you made the bash script executable?

IE: chmod +x mjpeg2mp4

You can do this with WinSCP too.

Re: Time Lapse WeatherCam

Copied over the time lapse script over to the CumulusMX RPi2. Have it starting out as a cron job. cd /video && python /video/talicam.py Not really hitting the CPU on the RPi2. If concerned about space you can run the python script on a share from another computer. Here goofing around sending...

Re: Time Lapse WeatherCam

Yup. Raspbian/Wheezy is just a tweaked for the Raspberry Pi Debian Linux. The only add is Mono for running CumulusMX. You could test run it to see what it does to CPU utilization concurrently running CumulusMX. One camera captures shouldn't really ding the RPi2. The instructions above are generic De...

Re: Time Lapse WeatherCam

I currently utilize Webmin to manage my CumulusMX Raspberry Pi 2. The Webmin interface allows for easy management access of the RPi2. You can configure Cron / Upstart stuff with Webmin or just manually run stuff with it. Webmin can be installed via SSH like this: 1 - wget hxxp://prdownloads.sourcefo...

I found a Python script that will do an easy Time Lapse on an RPi2. http://www.teknynja.com/2013/05/time-lapse-video-capture-from-network.html 1 - sudo apt-get install python-imaging 2 - talicam.py script #!/usr/bin/python # Number of seconds between frames: LAPSE_TIM...

Hello Sperry,

Been back and forth since the 1970's (always LBK) and still cannot figure out what I want to be when I grow up/ grow old.

The personal web pages was shut off by the ISP last week. I have read here that some host services do not allow text files to be uploaded. This pi...

Re: MX 3028 - No station re-connect? And Linux ttyUSBx issu

Here I have not seen that issue with my Cumulus MX running on the RPi2 with the Davis consoles. I did have one issue with a non synced download timing thing via the buffered cable. I am uploading to WUN, CWOP, mySQL and my internet website with the CumulusMX software sitting in the /CumulusMX direct...
