updates.

I confess to being pretty frustrated with the support here. This is not the usual freeware, I did pay for it. But looking at all the unanswered posts in the forum is very disheartening. On the topic of updates, there hasn't been a reliable place to look for what updates contain for some time now. I ...

Re: Weather Underground upload fail

Periodically, I get email from WU telling me my station stopped reporting. Then I'll get another one that it is all set. This happens at apparently random intervals, and for apparently random periods of time. On their site, there will be a section of data where the lines are all just horizontal, ind...

Re: 5.0s what is changed =

I was told to look here: http://wiki.meteohub.de/Updates for info about updates, but s has not been documented there yet. From elsewhere, it appears that support has been added for the Raspberry Pi 3, but that's just a guess, because we're reduced to guessing/inferring.

Re: 5.0 o and p?

Please, when posting updates in the future to the wiki page, add a date. It would be nice to be able to refer back to release dates that way.

Re: WeatherUnderground failures -- where does the fault lie?

So after replacing the batteries, I still had episodes of data dropouts for a few days. But it has been stable now for weeks, with no complaints from WU.

Re: WeatherUnderground failures -- where does the fault lie?

So it does seem that my "th0" sensor is not always providing data. In the Acurite, the outdoor unit is basically an all-in-one, so it surprises me that what must be the simplest sensor isn't doing its job? The wind seems to be OK. I just today replaced the batteries in the unit, but I still see time...

Re: WeatherUnderground failures -- where does the fault lie?

Thanks for answering! The station is an Acurite 1025/1035/1525. It has been pretty stable for the year. And I'm not sure I understand how the logs work in meteohub. Does the lack of messages mean that things returned to normal, or does it mean that nothing had changed? Here are the alarm log entries...

WeatherUnderground failures -- where does the fault lie?

My system has been up for about a year, and I've had very few problems with it in that time. Recently, however, I've been getting quite a few emails from WeatherUnderground telling me that my weather station has stopped reporting. Then, a couple of hours later, or half a day later, I'll get a follow...

Re: Problems after power outages

I haven't had quite the same issues, as far as I know, but I don't watch very carefully to be honest. I have a few Pi's around the house doing various things, and one of them acts as a client to a music server, and uses "piCorePlayer" software https://sites.google.com/site/picoreplayer/home .

Re: Problem with imagewriter

Hopefully you've figured this out, but the error message says it all. You can't take an image file that exists on a card, and write the resulting image onto the same card, because it overwrites the entire device. Copy the image file to your local HD first.
