Can the changes be ready to add functionalities to the api? In the weatherlink database they have added more options, the new functions appear to me blank. The weatherlink app has also changed, now where before it showed the maximum and minimal outside, now it's interior temperature decks. Have you seen it?

My upload to CWOP stopped for >20 minutes. I went into edit the info, more to confirm that it was still there. Shortly after hitting "update" I saw the data again. I'll keep an eye on it, may have to go back to meteobridge uploads for CWOP if something broke here...

I have the 5 minute interval set.

Don't forget that there are changes being made to weatherlink.com quite often. Some of these might need a stop and restart of the system with accompanying hiccups in the uploads etc. I doubt that it's anything to do with v6.0.5 of WLfW and changes to the local upload protocols are also unlikely I would have thought.

Yes I did, see my notes below. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Anyone else see that the time on WL.com update is not the local time.  I am pretty sure it had shown as local time up to about a week or so ago for my station.  It is 4:23 PM EST and we are UTC -5 so UTC 9:23 PM
Mine and saved stations in Iowa, Arizona, Florida, Nova Scotia are all last updated at about that 9:23 time.  However a Cyprus station is at 11:23 and it is likely UTC + 2.
Maybe part of the changes that are happening at WL.com.

Enjoy,
Paul

Edit: What I see on the dashboard page is correct time but the term "last updated" has always been a bit obscure. The only thing I can tell from the display is there is Solar radiation so this tends to indicate the correct time frame locally?

What I see on the summary page "Last updated" is red and shows date as yesterday and time is definitely UTC time. Also Barometer data is all blank but the times within the summary page do appear to be local with reference to data showing.

"Last updated" can mean something entirely different to say "Last downloaded" etc

I spoke with Davis yesterday in my case about my time being off and the right panel to select what you would like to see on your bulletin page being split in two sets (original station name and a second called weather station), The answer was they updated .com  and there are a bunch of bugs, especially with the time they are trying to work through. As far as the selections being split in two he said it seems like they are trying to make 2 categories one for inside and one for outside. I have no idea why this would be beneficial.

You have to remember that the wl.com 2.0 platform has to deal with ALL the different types of Davis station. What may not seem very necessary for someone using a Vue or basic VP2 becomes essential for someone using eg a complex Enviromonitor configuration, where the RH panel is already split into sections by node. And station configurations that allow for multiple indoor sensors (albeit at some cost for each sensor/transmitter) would also make sense of an indoor/outdoor split.

On the [Device Info] page do you have the Station model set correctly?

Looks like you may have the WL.com Pro version.  Your Bulletin shows the Solar, UV and ET graphs so the data is being sent and received.  Possibly part of the issues they are facing with the changes occurring.
I have the free version so I don't have the data table to compare, but my Bulletin does show UV, Solar and ET.

I see that on your Bulletin under station name you only show Barometer.
On mine (KomokaWeather) I have Barometer, Inside Temp/Hum, Local Forecast, Sunrise/Sunset, Moon Phase.
Mine is the free version and I think you are Pro but that should not be the reason I would think.

Enjoy,
Paul

Same thing here, on multiple stations...

TWO GENERIC QUESTIONS:

(a) Do we NEED to upgrade to the 6.0.5 software?
(b) Does Davis expect a specific software "baseline" for trouble/error free operation under WL2.0?

I've not seen a change log yet for 605 and it's not obvious what's changed. It may well be just an internal change eg for better Windows 10 compatibility BICBW. But right now there's no clear reason why you should NEED to update.

Depends what you're doing I guess. You can't upload to wl.com before v6.0.0 so that's one baseline. I can't recall when the Web Download protocol (for archive data) was introduced, but it's probably safe to say that using v6.0.0 is again a good minimum, but v6.0.4 makes Web Download a bit clearer.

What else is there, for now at least?
