Re: System stopped updating

How long has it been since you’ve replaced your micro SD card ?. They are known to fail due to the numerous read/writes required when Meteohub stores weather data. You may need to install the latest version of Meteohub available on the website ( I think it’s 4.9s ) on a new micro SD card, transfer y...

Re: New Raspberry PI / Davis Vantage Pro 2 setup

Rob, The last RPi model that Meteohub fully supports is the 3B. You can get the 3B+ working using the Frankenkernal mod described in the Frankenkernal Post on this Forum. However, that mod only works on version 5.1a. If you upgrade to 5.1b it will corrupt the installation requiring you to totally re...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Because of the lack of support for any RPI newer than the 3B and the necessity of using SLC micro SD cards in the RPI and SLC USB thumb drives for data storage for reliable long term operation, I switched from my Meteohub RPI to both a Meteobridge Nano SD in my Vantage Pro2 and a WiFi Logger in my V...

Re: Local Dashboard query

Per Boris’s comments on the latest firmware update for the Nano SD ( July 7 ) which fixed the problem of the dashboard forecast being missing after the June 22 firmware update. He has now set up external api downloads to only take place every 10 minutes. Make sure you update to the July 7 firmware u...

Re: Nano SD: Local Dashboard Forecast empty

Boris has released a new update ( July 7 ) that fixes the Dashboard forecast missing problem. I installed it and the Dashboard is working fine again. I did discover that all of my Dashboard settings had reset to defaults including the password I created for the dashboard settings itself and I had to...

Re: OpenWeatherMap 3.0?

Pigge,
Your solution to using the web interface to edit the config file is certainly just as easy as using winSCP. Kudos.

Re: Meteobridge NANO no connection

The installation instructions say specifically to remove all power including batteries before installing the nano in your console but after installing the nano to plug in your ac adapter. Battery power will only power the console with a nano installed for a relatively shot time and having run setup ...

Re: Meteobridge NANO no connection

Have you removed the batteries from your console ?. If so, does the reset button have any effect at all when powered only from your ac adapter ?. After pushing & holding the reset button in does the led blink slowly at all ?. If not, it appears you probably have a hardware issue and should contact y...

Re: Windy.com seeking input on developing API - Let's make Meteobridge first

I discovered that in obtaining a Windy.com api be careful if you’re just selecting the api in the window and copying and pasting it. The actual api is over twice as long as the window and you may only be copying part of it which will obviously not result in data uploads. On an iPad, highlighting the...

Re: OpenWeatherMap 3.0?

The upload to openweathermap 3.0 is now functioning. If you’ve created an openweathermap Station ID using the automatic creation function on your weatherbridge web interface using the original March 24 firmware release you will need to remove it from your weatherbridge manually if you’ve already rem...

Re: OpenWeatherMap 3.0?

Unfortunately, the new OpenWeathermap station ID changes don’t work for me. Even though I removed OpenWeathermap as a weather network in my NanoSD, the old original station ID that my NanoSD created is still there along with my previously entered api ID which I can remove by deleting it and doing a ...

If I enter my login name & password to access my nanoSD a new openweathermap station ID is created with the name of the station being the MAC address of my nanoSD. It created 7 additional separate station IDs besides the one originally created upon entering my api in the NanoSD Weather Station openw...

Re: OpenWeatherMap 3.0?

The openweathermap v3 api upload doesn’t work at all. The automatic station Id feature creates a new station ID every time you login to your Meteobridge and your Meteobridge doesn’t upload weather data to any of the station IDs it creates. It’s described as “ experimental “ in the release log and so...

Re: Issues with Open Weather Map (API v3.0)

I agree that having your Meteobridge create the station Id is easier ( it took me a while to finally figure how to configure my http client to send calls to openweathermap to create and delete stations and request weather data etc ( as the examples on their website are not complete ). However, this ...
