There are no instructions giving help when something does not work alright. And the program does not function properly: the graphic display does not appear, the time is one hour astray.
If someone know I am currently reporting through the software to weather underground. I am curious will its submit to all services simultaneously?
I have set this weather station as per instructions but the rain gauge is active in windy conditions and has registered 108 mils in three hot dry and gusty days. Can anyone offer some advice to stop this from happening please? Version 8.3
You need to make sure the outdoor kit is very rigidly mounted. The rain gauge is a water see-saw and if the kit oscillates in windy conditions it will tip the see-saw and record that as rainfall.
Thanks for the advice. I'm having the same problem. I have the gauge mounted on a 1.5 m (5ft) 25 mm (1") square ally tube above a 1.8 m (6ft) rigid fence post.
As the wire is quite long, I'm going to try mounting the rain gauge at the bottom of the pole. I'll post what happens. Any other comments appreciated.
Just installed easy weather 8, it will not display outside temp on the graph, only inside temp wind chill and dew point.
Can anyone suggest what to do?
During testing I downloaded latest software 8.2 which also works now. However I can not reset the max min information. It would be nice if somebody took the time to write single finger key stroke directions on how to set up and use the device. Including some comments on the way the device actually reads the information and manipulates the data before it is transmitted to the receiver and then the receiver appears to perform additional manipulation before the computer software also manipulates the information.
I've been using version 6.2 since 2010 with few problems until middle September 2014 when the software suddenly would not connect to the receiver. Apparently removing the batteries for several minutes or moving the cord around trying to trouble shoot the problem caused everything to suddenly start working. Go Figure. more later.
I experience the same problem every week or so. The problem seems to be on the USB interface, but I haven't pinned it down to which end.
I had the same problem but it turned out to be a dodgy USB lead.
I ended up buying a male-to-male USB connector so I could use a standard USB lead.
There is a nice little USB utility for Windows called usbview.exe (Google for it) it shows all the details of the interface but especially shows if the connection is intermittent.
Removing the internal batteries wipes the memory. )-:
Own a station and use the program. It is exactly as written in the text. Easy to use and allows you to export to excel.
When I graph the temperature history, the red (outdoor temperature) line is not there. In my setup, the outdoor station is in the basement. So the wind speed is 0. Does this mean the wind chill line would be the same as the outdoor temperature line and, thus, I cannot see the outdoor temperature line?
I had the same problem. For a long time only the orange line was visible, but as conditions changed, the red line re-appeared. Look in history and you will find the data columns showing the same values.
Can I add 2 screens to 1 outdoor station?
If so, how?
Cons: it needs upgrading the entire layout to a newer looking program. The alarm needs to be louder, put some colour in it from green to orange or red, etc.
I am having difficulty with this setup after I wiped my hard drive and reinstalled Win 7. I do not see any help with the setup, I am stuck on the absolute and relative pressures, what goes there?
I recently had to upgrade my computer from XP to W7. Before I did this, I downloaded my history to an external hard drive. I have installed 6.2 to my computer but I can't find a way to add my previous history. Is there any way or am I out of luck?
In the same directory as the task (EasyWeather.exe) there is a file called EasyWeather.dat.
That file seems to hold the historical data in a binary form - mine is now almost 18Mbyte. If you have wiped that file you are in trouble unless someone can provide you with a way to re-import the saved text data.
How do you count zero highs and lows without losing all records?
Any help for me, please. My EasyWeather version 6.2 keeps saying not connected when, in fact, it is connected to my PC!
Same problem but mine was a dodgy USB lead - see above answer.
EW works very well for day-to-day recording of my station but despite the instruction book's claims and any amount of trial-n-error, I cannot remove certain max/min readings on the console or reset the rain total. As certain helpful small boys occasionally take a delight in messing with the outdoor station I get spurious measurements I would like to erase.
