We are here to help.  I am playing with alarm emails right now.  The MB is 600 kms away.  :)

Maybe this is a no brainer... but can you use this new function to feed the Virtual VP program if you wanted?

Why yes, SpartanWX, it is a no brainer.  And it feeds VirtualVP just fine.

Hello everyone, new member and new owner of a used Davis VantageVue station with the meteobridge and usb data logger. I have the setup working and uploading data to weather underground. I'm also able to connect one software program at a time via the IP address. Am I correct in understanding that if I update the firmware (is that right?) on the meteobridge that I would be able to continue to upload to weather underground and connect say two different computers at the same time to see the weather data?

Also at the beginning of this thread there was mention of using a computer to connect several devices at one time, I would be very interested in how to do this if it is still possible.

Thanks!

Not really since no one in the US has it in stock.

You could feed lots of PC software doing it that way.

I have the WeatherLink #6540 which is a serial data Logger. Could I set up a meteobridge to work with the weather display software. This particular Davis WeatherLink software/data Logger is for a special APRS amateur radio application/TNC. I have seen a lot of talk about a usb hub for use with the meteobridge so I just want to be clear that the meteobridge could work for me.... #-o

Yes, but you'll need to convert the serial connection of your logger to USB via a serial to USB adapter. This adapter needs to have the Prolific pl2302 chipset or the FTDI chipset. You'll likely also need a powered USB 2.0 hub if the serial to USB adapter is not a USB 1.1 device. Unless you use one of the newer Meteobridge hardware that has a USB 2.0 port already built in. Be sure to set logger to 19200 baud.

Or you could just get a WeatherLink Live. Both the Meteobridge and Weather-Display will see this device on the network and both talk to it at the same time. Yes this is a more costly solution for those that have already invested in an existing logger. But it is a less cluttered setup and it frees your console to just be a viewing device with only a power connection coming from it. The WeatherLink Live and the Meteobridge can be out of sight, leaving just the console out in sight.
