Well, turns out I was able to stumble my way into a working solution, employing essentially the same advice you’ve given here (setting CSV output on the USB Weather Board being the biggest problem with my setup). Everything seems to be working fine now, but I’m still not sure about how the update-rate matching works between Weather Display software and the USB Weather Board. They each have a way of setting the data refresh rate, so if even if you have the same update rates set on both of them, I wonder how it is that they actually sync? The USB board PUSHES the update, the Weather Display software PULLS it. So are there twice as many updates?
What I’d really like to do, ideally, is get a front-end set up for this using Processing or some other easy-to-program graphical application development software. Are you aware of any such projects ported to the USB Weather Board?
Thanks for the help.
@mikerector: How did you get the WeatherDisplay software to work with the USB Weather Board? I downloaded a trial copy and haven’t been able to get it to work properly. Sometimes it talks with the board (but gives erroneous readings), other times it does not even communicate with the board. I have selected the “Sparkfun” board in the Control Panel settings. Are there any other settings or procedure to follow that I need to be aware of? For that matter, what other display options are available for this weatherboard? Thanks.
Has anyone successfully used this board with a WiFly?
No public wish lists :(
