Next problem is how to release the comm port when the program exits?

I've tried using the Exit menu item and I've tried going into the Control Panel and closing the comm port but nothing works.  The comm port stays open and locked.

If you try to restart the program, you get the spinning beach ball. 

The only way to release the comm port is to reboot the computer.

Thanks again.

There's a bunch of other stuff happening with the data which might be due to the parsing of the stream but I'll hold off on that for now.

283 seems to have fixed the serial port closure issue.  Thanks.

I've got some funkiness happening with some readings not showing up and the graph no updating with any of the wind readings.

I've included a screenshot of the OSX and Windows screens side by side.

The Average Wind Speed isn't updating, the windchill is wrong (due to wind speed?), the maximum gusts are wrong, the maximum temperature is wrong and the minimum temperature is wrong.  You can also see the timestamp for the temperature readings is wrong.

The OSX version has just been running a few minutes and the Windows version has been running for quite a few days now.

do you mean you are using a Y splitter?

Yes, both machines are fed the same data stream through a y cable.

I should be able to fix the average speed not working
I suspect that there might be some data packets missed (i.e missed syncing) ,re the max gust

try, re the average speed, as a test:
http://www.weather-display.com/downloadfiles/weatherdisplaymaczip.zip
and unzip that exectutable file to the
/Applications/weatherdisplay.app/Contents/MacOS/
folder

I only have a console here, no actual windspeed or temp/hum unit (but I might be able to get that at some stage to help in testing/improvements)

Sorry but no difference.

Average Wind Speed isn't changing, most of the graphs aren't plotting and my Maximum and Minimum Temperatures aren't changing and show no timestamp.

humm
what I will need to try and do (since I do not have all the hardware) is spoof that I have actual data
if you set to log the raw data...see under setup, advanced/misc
and then email me the rawultimeterdata.txt file that should be created

After about 5 minutes, I can see an Average Wind Speed.  What time period is that based on?  I'll let it run and compare it to the Windows version after it's accumulated more data.

The Maximum Temperature is now showing with a timestamp but Minimum Temperature doesn't seem to be updating and I'm not seeing a timestamp for it.

I'm also not seeing Yesterday's rain total.

Graphs now appear to be updating as well.

Great progress!

its a rolling average, calculated at every update (last 60 readings)
