OK, its confirmed, the problem is tied to the timezone setting on the mymidnite system settings.

When I have my timezone set at Hawaii (UTC-10)  the data starts showing at 10AM.
I changed my timezone last night to UTC-9 and the data started showing at 9AM this am.

Vic, given you say yours starts at 7AM, I'm guessing you're in the pacific time zone.

Most other US timezones would probably never notice this problem.

Unfortunatley, I think this may mean that the fix has to do with the website programming.   Does Midnight support this feature?  Are they likely to fix it?  They have been pretty short or non-responsive to my tech support inquires saying that this is a free feature.  By that do they mean that this is unsupported?

Thanks for all your help along the way.

Aloha,

-Jacob

I’m not close to my Classic or the LA right now and I have no idea if this setting effects data on MyMidnite.  But I seem to remember that there is a setting I believe in the LA to record data a night or something to that effect.  Not sure if there is a similar setting on the MNGP.

You might look around the LA settings and see if you can find it. Seem to be it was a check box. Maybe Ryan knows where it is at and what it’s function is.

Thanks Kyle, does this setting effect data sent to MyMidnite? If not what does it effect and between what hours?

Hi Resthome.  I'm not sure you're asking to help me with my issue or  from your own curiosity about that particular flag.....but as far as my particular problem I've discovered it is related to something else:

Apparently my data IS being sent to my-midnite 24 hours a day by my classic, as it is supposed to.  There is, in fact, no black out period of the data being sent or received by midnite's servers.  The problem is with the display of the data by the mymidnite webpage.  There is some issue with the timezone setting where data does not display before 10AM if I have the timezone set to my correct timezone UTC-10.  If I change it to say eastern timezone, all the data suddenly appears (but has the wrong time of course so is much less useful)

I'm not sure there is anything that can be done from a user perspective on this because it seems to be related to the web page itself....but I'd be happy to hear otherwise.

Thanks for your interest in helping me solve my problem though.

This function does not apply to My Midnite, it has to do with the minutely data on the classic. When disabled it will not add the minutely data to the classics memory any time it is resting basically

Well, I found a hack that kind of helps me use web monitoring in the AM during the problem time before 10AM

As I mentioned, I discovered the web site has a problem with my timezone (Hawaii).  If I put later timezones it displays the "missing" data but my timestamps are off.

So, there's a timezone setting setting (UTC+14) which is exactly 24 hours off of hawaii's timezone (UTC-10).  If I use this timezone, my data is available 24 hours a day....the time of the data is correct but it is one day off.  So, this works for my purposes.

Unfortunatley there's another glitch on the web page when using this timezone and it opens to a blank graph until I manually move it to the visible graph....but I'll take what I can get.

Just wanted report this hack for anyone having a similar issue.

Aloha

It shows blank because it thinks there is no data for today - the data it thinks it has is from 1 day ago - you have to move the window "back" to yesterday - which for you is today.

This should really be fixed on the site - I am sure it is a simple change.

Hi Mcsarge,

What you said made total sense when I read it.  But then I went to the site to see, and the data it thinks it has is actually from tomorrow!  i.e  right now at 6:38AM on July30, its showing data from 6:35AM on July 31.  But I'm just happy I can see it at this hour!

One day back, one day forward, whatever works! haha - it needs to be fixed, I am sure it something simple in the code. I know that the posting of the data is very secure, so they just can't allow it to be posted any old place, but there are other solutions. We have put together a pretty cool system that gets the data from the Midnite Solar controller and posts it to a Mosquitto service and then you can use an app (on Andriod) or other ways to see what is happening. Check out the threads about in the open source part of the forum...
