Re: MAC Evocam

Thought I would post it here anyway, just in case there is anyone else who needs it. First Steps: Create 2 text items in the Evocam display, one called "Now" and the other called "Today". Set up a new action that has a Time period: of "Always" and a When ever any of the...

Re: MAC Evocam

Hi Kevin,
Sorry for the REALLY late reply on this one. Are you still interested in the overlay side of things using EvoCam?

MAC Evocam

Does anyone here use Evocam on MAC?
I have been using it for a while now and have a script I use (that runs within the app) to overlay the current conditions using the realtime.txt data.
If anyone is interested, I can post it here with some basic instructions on how to set it all up.

Re: Windrose popup different to gauge.

I am using the SQL version.
I changed the code so it uses the 'wlatest' data rather than the 'wspeed' and the result is much closer now to the gauge.

Windrose popup different to gauge.

Not sure what is happening here but the popup windrogse graph is quite different to the actual gauge. The gauge is reading correctly as I have confirmed the direction it is facing when I took this screen capture and there has been little to no wind over night. Any ideas as to what I have set up inco...

Re: Highcharts Graphs

Hi Mark, I was wondering if you would be willing to share your table structure and trigger you use with the "comfort" graph? I have it nearly all working now but that one graph is causing me grief as it appears to have changed quite significantly from the very first incantation of it. Rega...

Re: Interesting PC Time & Date observations on Cumulus & WL

I did not mean to offend and I am sorry if I did. In my mind I was comparing it to php where there is a simple function that converts local time to UTC.

I will admit that I didn't realise the original question was about v1 so for that I also apologise.

Re: Interesting PC Time & Date observations on Cumulus & WL

I am not sure what programming language is used for cumulus but I would have thought it would be relatively easy to have a check box which a allows a user the opt in for storing data in UTC by calling a function that converts the local pic time to UTC. I might have it all wrong but I just thought I ...

MX not talking to console

I have been doing quite a bit of work getting data out of MySQL and today MX decided it could not get the data from the console. Restarting MX fixed that problem (what caused it I don't know) BUT, during the time MX could not get the data from the console, it kept sending the same data to MySQL ever...

Re: Highcharts Graphs

Hi Mark, Just a quick question for clarification purposes. In your scripts you use several table names that are not what CMX creates as the part of the SQL setup. Could you please provide your equivalent table names for the following CMX tables: CMX table Your table Dayfile Monthly Realtime If you c...

Re: Highcharts Graphs

Just thinking a little more on that and realised even that is wrong.

MX is storing the log file date as daylight time, MySQL is set to use standard time so I will have to think a little more on that.

Re: Highcharts Graphs

I know this thread is now over a month since the last post but thought I would chime in on Tony's problem with time zone conversions. If the hosting providers version of MySQL does not have the Timezone tables populated then you can't use the Australia/Hobart format for time conversion. The only way...

Re: Major MX crash tonight.

Checked the console and it was displaying a constant "R" in the bottom right corner of the display. Checked the manual and it said to enter Setup Mode and then exit Setup Mode. Did that and the station started receiving data again. It even looks like it retained nearly all the data but the...

Major MX crash tonight.

Didn't notice a problem until I decided to just check it now.

It told me to zip up the files in the MXdiags folder and post them, so here they are.
