new silicon labs USB to UART driver version 3.
« on: June 22, 2012, 08:43:08 PM »
Stu had suggested my checking the Davis site for driver upgrades as I've been having occasional problems with the raw rain data failing to zero, and feels it may be a comms fault.

I checked the Davis site, and they list the latest Silicon labs driver as being Version 2.8, released Dec 2011, which is the release I downloaded when I started up mid Feb.

I've checked the Silicon Labs site, they have a new release, version 3, released on the 27th March which "corrects issue where transmission would stop when a 0 length packet was sent incorrectly on aligned packet boundaries".

The link for the updated driver for those interested is:

Thanks JC for the update!

I haven't upgraded mine since I'm still "Snow Leopard" bound.  However, anyone running Lion should upgrade if they haven't done so.
