I guess I'm just gonna stick to 3.2 version.

Unless the new versions have a real big change in capabilities.

For my use it is good as is.

Too bad it is necessary to let customers pay for updates.

Good luck, I'll keep an eye on releases and forum maybe I'll change my mind.

Cheers wsNoordbergum.

In the future licenses will still be of unlimited life-time, but update service
will be limited to two years after having applied/purchased the license.
I purchased my meteobridge (as part of a package) from ambientweather.com on January 21st 2017; it was delivered to me on January 26th and I set it up a few days later. The device now claims the license "includes access to new releases until: 2018-12-28" which is less than 2 years after I purchased the license. Is it possible that there was an error in the license logic that resulted in the support period being shortened to 23 months instead of 24, or does the license period start when the device is delivered to a reseller?

In general licensed systems sold by resellers start counting when first time license conditions on web interface of Meteobridge are accepted. Regular licensing via reseller does not trigger that, but may be reseller did some checks and by that period counter started. But no problem,
please send your license code shown on license tab to "info@meteobridge.com" and I will adapt according to the data posted here.

I have 5 MB TP-Link TL-MR3020 V3 working fine, but 2 of them I can't reboot. One has 157 days and other 115 days working without reboot. When I press reboot button, everything works as it would reboot, but nothing happen. I already tried to turn it off, wait some minutes, turn on again, but without success. Both are with Meteobridge 3.9. Is there another way to update MB version? Or how can I reboot? This 2 MB are working, the only thing is that I can't reboot and update MB version. They have less then 2 years of license.

Try downloading to 3.7 then reboot, then choose Latest Version and reboot again.

What happens if you pull power cable out? Maybe you need to reset the device. Backup config file and screen capture your high lows if they matter.

Also have you cheched that your license is still current? I know you say that you've had them for less than 2 years but is that confirmed in the license box? Updates are only for 2 years. Then you need to renew if you want more updates for another 2 years.

Maybe there is a firewall problem on the network. Try connecting to different network and see if it upgrades.

Includes access to new releases until: 2021-02-03
Includes access to new releases until: 2021-01-07

If I pull power cable off, nothing happen. Is the same when I press reboot. It shows that is rebooting, I must wait system come back and when I checked, MB version and system uptime are the same.

Found the answer to your problem. You are using version 3 and it can't be upgraded the normal way. You have to do it via a TFTP server.
