Hello,
can anybody double-check the tag 'sunshinehours' as a synthetic channel? For me it gives only full hours (no commas, see the screenshot please [8,00 instead of 8,15 or 8,50]). Thanks for feedback.
Cheers,
Reinhard

The sun just appeared here, so I don't have a full hour yet, but I am getting a decimal point. I'll check again in a few minutes after I have had a full hour.

Blickj11,
not to cause confusion: the dezimal point (in my case a comma) appears as well here, but I get only full hours as result. So when the sun shines I get a zero ( 0,00 ), and one hour later I get a 1,00 and so on. What I want to state is that there is no room between the hours of sunshine (mabye it shines for 9,85 hours but I will only get a sum of 9 hours because the 10th hour isn't full?).
So far, please let it run for a few hours - thanks!
Cheers,
Reinhard

Reinhard:

It appears to me that the Stat tag for sunshine hours works in the English version. See attached. But I will let it run for a few more hours and see if it goes to rounding to whole hours after a longer time.

Dear Reinhard, Blick, and WeatherCat scripters,

Hello,

Not sure why you are seeing nothing after the decimal point, but it does seem likely to be some sort of a localization issue.  I forgot to change the units, but here is the result graphed on to my wind run synthetic channel.



Time to ask Stu about it!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Interestingly no problems with aftercomma in the other synthchannels, but only with sunshinehours. Another thing is - the other four channels show "current value" in german, but not so the 5th channel.  ???
