WDL Summary Image
« on: May 14, 2018, 12:25:30 PM »
Hello.

Since changing my weather station to a Davis Vantage Vue, the summary image on my Weather Display Live page is always cloudy/sunny (see attached) unless it is raining or night time.

FreshWDL always says 'increasing clouds....'

Is this normal?

At time of writing, my Weather Display summary says 'clear' (see attached as well).

I seem to recall the sun icon and some others were displayed with my old station.

the clear is likely coming from a metar
you can set to have the metar update the icon

since the Vue does not have solar, make sure the solar settings are not set in use

also though you can set the icon to be set from the VP forecast info from the console

My 'set as METAR' options are mostly greyed out.

Solar settings are not in use.

I did try setting the icon to use the info from the console but there were dark clouds shown on WDL! Does this option work with the VP and Vantage Vue?

yes, that should work
what was the icon on the actual console? (note its a forecast icon)
