I have a newly installed AAG Cloudwatcher connected to my laptop via a serial/usb adapter. The AAG Cloudwatcher software is all set up including the path for each of the dat and csv files.
I have Chris Rowland’s Safety Monitor ascom driver installed; I have the AAG patch from Lunatico installed; I have the Boltwood OK to Image and OK to Open installed. I have each of the Boltwood monitors configured with maximum settings (configured by clicking on the settings icon in the sequence window for each) and have set the correct file paths to the AAG_CWNetData.dat file.
I have selected the OK to Image in the sequence window and connected to the Safety Monitor. SGP reports Unsafe (red illuminated circle) whilst I know it is Dry, Dark and Clear of clouds. If I open the Cloudwatcher SW, it is happily plotting graphs: so the unit itself is working fine and reports Safe. It is updating the CSV file and the file size is increasing with each recording session. The two dat file sizes (the CCDAP4 and AAG_CWNetData) do not however increase in size.
I have repeated checking file paths about a dozen times trying to get the safe status the same in Cloudwatcher and SGP. Buzz has been valiantly replying to PMs for the last couple of hours trying to help too.
The SGP log reports connecting fine to the Safety Monitor.
If I select the Chris Roland’s Safety Monitor in the SGP sequence window (rather than Boltwood OK to Image) and then click on the settings icon, it brings up a window and when I click the Check File option it says it is having difficulty reading the AAG_CWNetData.dat file. Does this mean that any of the Safety Monitors (CW Monitor, Boltwood OK to Image and Boltwood OK to Open) are not making a connection to the correct .dat files?
If anybody is able to shed light on where I am going wrong I’d be really grateful (feels like I’m going slowly insane).
I’m running the latest SGP beta 220.127.116.11.
