not sure what you mean by item 16?
what weather station type do you have?

that is probably because people with a Davis station normally have Davis solar sensor
and do not use a solar in a jar from an extra temperature sensor
I would need to make that selection available for a Davis station

Hey Brian,
thanks again for all your hard work!
I've been busy chasing honey bees! but i hope you can help me out here

I ran version 10.37R b81 for alot of years and it let me use solar in a jar with the davis pro temp and humidity sensor,
with this version 10.37s72 i can't figure out how to set it up?
in the .jpg i sent it uses a tag "%VPextratemp1% and it shows my extra temp that is set to extra temp #7?

thanks again Brian
