20140Re: La Crosse WS-2812-IT w/ HWP 2800 has me stumped
- Dec 28, 2011All - thanks. Don - I'd prefer to toss HWP, but mine [I didn't buy
it...] is a wireless console with no physical ports of any kind. The
console talks to the PC by it's own proprietary wireless connection
[not 802.11 wifi] using a usb stick that comes with the system. So
I'm stuck w/ HWP. As for what updates what, I will have to mess
around more. What's truly weird is that w/ HWP *not* running [just
the service], the 15-min data within HWP *do* get updated but
currdat.lst doesn't [iirc] - maybe the consol stores the 15-min data
and dumps it when HWP is started. But...when I start HWP it can't
see any console for a while [many minutes] but eventually does find
it; the HWP internal 15-min data get updated even when HWP claims it
has no console connection. Once HWP does find the console,
currdat.lst is updated every 4 seconds -- doesn't seem to be a way to
control that [???], and I'm not sure what if any avg. interval is
written to the .dat file. Bizarre... and a pita.

I believe that the service is the software that is actually updating
the currdat.lst file. I have never heard that the currdat.lst file
updates stop if you run the HW software. Is this true even after some
period of time? Perhaps the HW software is using the service to
download the history and after some time that operation would
complete and currdat.lst updates would resume.

My suggestion would be to throw HWP away and use WUHU in Serial mode. But
that's just me.
