as your davis console still has the data
and so you set WD to get the data direct from the davis console instead of from meteobridge and then restart WD (after setting the time/date to get the data)
what is your advantage in having/using meteobridge though (just wondering)

Thanks for tip about getting data from Davis console if my pc crashes.

My website homepage is driven mainly by the weather34 template. I am still using the WD API version of the template you developed with Brian, but using meteobridge means I can keep up with the updates Brian is continually making. My laptop is also ageing and not quite as reliable as was running 24x7. Meteobridge is basically just a router and seems to be able to run for months without intervention. Means that if my laptop does crash whilst I am working away my main website will still be driven by meteobridge (unless internet goes down.

I have been using WD for about 15 years now and love the additional stuff meteobridge canít do.running both gives me what I need!
