My pws metar jpg is stuck
« on: November 05, 2020, 02:15:19 PM »
VWS 15 p05 on win 7 ult 64 w sp1 - my pws metar jpg file stopped updating 10/18/2020 16:00, even tho the metar.text file shows current metar fro my station ktxhoust78. The other two metar jpgs khou and kmjc are updating normally. I send data to Hamweather Weather4You PWS weather and WU and CWOP. Data is current on all their sites.

My metar settings source is hamweather -- i emailed their support twice but no response so far. Any ideas  -- Yes I have rebooted several times.

Thanks

I have VWS v15 and when my Metars on the screen have stopped I found the only way to get them going was to switch it to NOAA and force an Update Now. Then switch back to Hamwesther and do another Update Now. That seems to usually get things going. I haven't looked into the why this happens.

So I did as you suggested and the KTXHOUST78.txt METAR file was correctly updated - but the jpg generated from it is from two days ago - when one metar jpg was just randomly created.

I realize this is what I get running EOL hardware and software - but I sure would like to get it working as it was before Nov 2020! NO changes in OS (win 7) or system or drivers --- only the weather! :)
