National Geographic Weather forcast model 265NC

Postby mastermind933 » Mon Aug 18, 2008 2:18 pm

National Geographic Weather forcast model 265NC

The above weather forecast is sold exclusively at Wall-Mart At least in Canada
It come with EasyWeather VER 2.0 Software With a USB Connection.
I am very new at this therefore I don't know much about all of this
I have no problem receiving information on my computer from my receiver (265NC) using the software provided. However I am unable to synchronize with Cumulus software Version 1.7.14.
If there is anyone out there that could help me or give some hints it would be much appreciated.

Henri :( :(

Henri,

It should be the same as any other station that uses Easyweather. You'll need to have Easyweather running, and Cumulus set to a station type of 'Easyweather', with the path to the easyweather.dat file configured. Set the update interval to the same as the Easyweather interval.

If you've done that and it still doesn't work, I'll need you to supply some diagnostics.

Steve Thank you for your prompt reply. I have no problem with all that you said. However I don't know what you a talking about when you mentioned "the path to the easyweather.dat file is nor how it is created.
I know the path of where the software is installed. and I did save a file name easyweather.txt into the same directory as all of the files that belong to the software easy weather.
In short where is the easyweather file with an extension .dat and how is is created.

Cheers

Henri

The easyweather.dat file is the data file created by the Easyweather software. I think it's normally created in the same folder that Easyweather is installed into. You need to set the path to that file in the Cumulus station setup.
