VWS Data Status Indication Problem

I have converted from HS2 to HS3 Pro, and running VWS Version

I have had situations where the WX station has gone off line, but VWS still shows Valid Data.

Currently the status page is showing: Wx Date: 11/30/2015 8:36:00 AM, but
the configuration advanced tab shows: 1 = "Wx Date: **CSV Data OLD** "

The data is current and valid.
I think the 3 states are (please correct me if wrong):
0 Data Not Connected
1 Data is Current/Valid
2 Data is Old

I only see a change in status if the remote computer generating the data goes off line. If the data is Old there is no change.

Any thoughts?

I will have to check, but if I remember correctly, the plugin checks for updated csv file every 15 seconds. If the file is older than 15 seconds then the plugin flags the data as old, because VWS appears to not be updating the csv files. Make sure clocks are set properly between HS machine VWS machine and weather station.
