Re: Sporadic Action File "On Weather Upload"
- You should not be using the USB driver at all. The CP210x driver does not need to be on the computer. You need to use this utility to remove it and then set the console to serial mode.
1/25/2008: WeatherLink Utility: CP210X USB to Serial Converter, 2.0
It ain't gonna work until you do that.

Davis says in their instructions that this will only work with Weather Link software. If you are using the VUE with WUHU per the instructions on page 14 and 15 of the Weather Link manual you must remove the USB drivers and run the console in serial mode even though it is a USB logger using the USB cable. That is the way I do it and it is rock solid.

- RESOLVED!! (I think)
WUHU has been running like a champ for the last 15 hours, on each Weather Update (yes I know, but I love data). I still write to both files, execute my original action file (plus more scripts now), and upload to WUnderground (including RapidFire) and CWOP.
Control Panel (classic view)-->System-->Device Manager. Found My new driver for the COM port-->Properties-->Port Settings. I did the following 3 things at the same time...
1) Increased Baud rate from 9600 to 128000
2) Changed Flow Control to Hardware
On the Power Management Tab...
3) Unchecked allow cpu to turn off device to save power.
That was it. WUHU has been humming ever since then.
Thanks all for your help!!
