Hi - Im new to forum and new to my Aercus WS3083 Weather station. I bought so I could upload data to my computer but see it was recommended for use with a pc - I have a Mac and after reading through the forum am none the wiser on how to get an interface I can use with the device - any not too technical advice??

MX works on a Mac, but you will need to be proficient in the use of the command line. There's a little bit of information about OS X in the instructions, I'm afraid that's all I can offer at the moment.

I've just been switching weather stations and the computer and version of Cumulus I run. Setting up a mac mini with Mono and Cumulus MX has surprisingly been much easier than I expected and it's bedding in quite nicely now.

@herge1 I'd be happy to help you with some setup instructions if you want. I'm not familiar with your weather station but getting a mac set up with Cumulus MX is straightforward enough in my experience so far.

I'm in exactly the same situation with my WS 3083 and a Mac. I have downloaded Mono and Cumulus MX but the directory Cumulus MX can't be found in the terminal. Like herge1 I need a bit of help, many thanks
