I've always liked the slight delay myself and never understood the thinking of needing realtime to the exact second. The registered speed doesn't change but as mentioned hearing big gust allows time to watch console.

We know what most mean when they state they want "real-time" or "instantaneous" but put in perspective the wind speed at an instantaneous point in time is really zero, as for there to be wind speed the wind speed and wind run has to be measured over a period of time, similar with real-time, speed is based over a period of time in the past, similar with gust, it is measured over a period of time, it simply has to be.

Weather in TV & Movies / Re: The Weather Channel sold again!

During severe wx outbreaks, TWC still does a job. I find it's easier to watch on tv than screwing around with everything else during these times, but I still go on-line if I want something of more detail.
Otherwise.....

Well, so much for that. The attached 800x600 map uses 48 map units. At a six minute interval that would be 11,520 map units a day.

Back to the drawing board.

I could be wrong, but I believe with Aeris, the map units are counted for the initial map created (48 units), and then it accrues based on views of the map, not the interval that the map is used.

Double check that but I used their platform for a little while about a year ago, and never went above 3,000 map units a day (still a lot).

TWC filled a niche at the time. There was nothing else like it and weather junkies ate it up.
Over the years with the proliferation of  internet weather sites us weather junkies began to turn else where. Viewership went down so TWC had to grab those fringe customers by doing other things besides weather, thus alienating us even more. Nowadays with the weather in the palm of your hand with smart phones TWC isn't even in the discussion any more.
I suspect eventually Weathernation  will go out of business.  The time has come and past for something like this. I know my self I have Weathernation on cable but I never watch it. I have everything I need in the palm of my hand.

Has this not been the inevitable circumstances that have transpired with any 'niche' television channel? As an example, The History Channel now has half of their programs with reality program, where 10 years ago, they were primarily a documentary-based channel. AMC used to be a channel dedicated to classic American films (hence the name American Movie Classics), yet now for several years they have produced their own shows.

Inevitably, it seems that as the competition to gain viewers grows more intense, and different methods of watching television become more available, these niches get pushed aside toward topics that loosely fit the channel's long-standing identification for a more general audience.

Does Davis update the display's wind speed every 2.5 seconds or is this just the sampling rate with a longer lag time for the display?
It transmits every 2.5 to 3 seconds, per the manual. For instance, if you hear a gust, it's visible on the console, WL, ect. after it's sampled and transmitted, which is about 5 seconds at most.

If the Davis reporting time is 2.5 seconds regardless of wired or wireless that would be acceptable to me even if not an instantaneous (real-time) response. My Acurite 5 in 1 gives 18 second updates which is what annoys me especially during high wind and gust events.

Aeris may be an option. I doubt I would need more than their developer tier.
