WD Questions / Re: How does the new WiFiLogger work with WD?

Depends on the locations but maybe he could use the re-transmit facility on the console with good reception to relay the data to the second console?

But then the console is in a place in the house where I won't be able to conveniently read it.  I like to read the temp/wind on my way out the door.
If your console is, for the time being, in a location that cannot be easily accessed or in an area where the console cannot be easily viewed, AND, in an area where the reception from both the ISS and the 'anemometer/sensor transmitter' is good, could you not replace the console with a Davis Instruments 'Wireless Weather Envoy' and place the console in an area where said console can be easily viewed!  :wink:

I have been using two such 'Wireless Weather Envoy' for years - they are in different areas of the house where viewing the data is not important/required (as they provide their data directly to the computers) but where the reception is optimum.

Hi-
First a couple of general questions:
1. Can multiple stations be displayed in Weather Display? I have more than one station.
2. I would also like to use it on a Raspberry Pi 3 b+, but in the setup I see no way to enter anything for Ambientweather.net. Can ambientweather.net be accessed from the Raspberry Pi or Linux versions?
3. I have the Mac version (10.37 build 307), which I am having some difficulty in connecting to ambientweather.net. I followed the video instructions, however the Mac version station setup page looks nothing like that in the video, which I assume is for the PC/Windows version. I am fairly sure I do have the api key in the correct place (even though that place has no label on it), and have even put in the mac address. The readings obtained have no relation to the station readings. The window for cronambientweather.net shows only "{"error":"above-app-rate-limit"}". Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help.

WD Questions / Re: NWS forecasts stopped working
« Last post by Fred on Today at 01:33:03 AM »
Brian,
Not sure what is going on, but I just got a weather forecast with time stamp of 1923 11 Dec which is tonight here in Maine.

I have HomeSeer check the WD 5-forecast file hourly and read the top entry to us if the experation time stamp changes.  When I received this 'reading' tonight I immediately checked the WD 5-day forecast display and there it was. This could be an oddball thing like happened on Saturday, but I prefer to think that you had something to do with it. If so, Thank You.

Fred

WD Questions / Re: WeatherDisplay seen as Ransomeware by Malwarebytes
« Last post by bwawsc on December 11, 2018, 11:59:59 PM »
I thought that was the case, but I thought you might like to know, in case others might have the same problem. Something in build 85 is triggering this MalwareBytes response, and the result is nasty - the weatherdisplay.exe file is now locked so I can't access it. I can't delete it, rename it, execute it - nothing works. So I can't install build 82, or even erase everything and start over.

I'm working with Malwarebytes to resolve this, but if it can be prevented it would be better.

Well, after 24 hours, I checked the stats again without the logger installed.  My reception rate on the ISS was still 98%.  But the wind one was even worse!  Only 58%.  So I can report to everyone here, it's not the logger.

My guess is I've been having an issue with the location of the second console, and just didn't know until I had something actually logging it.  Problem is I could move the console to get better reception.  But then the console is in a place in the house where I won't be able to conveniently read it.  I like to read the temp/wind on my way out the door.

So I'm just going to hang onto the logger for now.  I'll just have to flip my current setup over still using the existing serial logger.

I've been using windows since v 3.1 and never had reason to try this before. Complicated by having WD running on a Win2008R2 server which has no email client installed. So if nothing else I have learned a new trick today - thank you.

I think I have gotten it right.

WD Questions / Re: Import of Cumulus log files

There also seems to be a problem with (I think) humidity (94/95 at 0758) and pressure appears to be shown converted a minute late?

yes, WD is using the #17 data column for the current gust speed
