  • ET calculation reverts back to historical despite setup to get it from CSV file

    I have a Davis Vanatge Pro that gets polled by Cumulus software which in turns creates a regularly updated CSV file which mcs then reads for values. All the other values are correctly imported from this file (rain, wind, temp, humidity, etc), but the daily ET value is ignored despite the weather setup to get it from the CSV. If I restart the homeseer system it will sometimes get it from the csv file (show csv behind the value in the general status screen), but a couple of minutes later it reverts to historical values (showing hist behind the value).

    Does anyone have a similar issue and/or know how to fix it?

    Sytem details below and mcs config file attached

    mcsSprinklers will revert to the historical ET when it appears that weather data has not been received for about an hour. When getting data from CSV the fresh data indicator was omitted so it appeared the data was invalid.

    It is fixed in mcsSprinklers_2009.dll is all that is needed, but if you want the version number to also be current then HSPI_MCSSPRINKLERSP.exe is also extracted.

    Note that the ET hourly and day total are only updated on GeneralStatus and HS Devices about 7 minutes after the hour.
