Decent hardware, poor software
I like the TP2700WC a lot. The hardware is decent quality for the price. The instructions were poor, and the cable lengths are somewhat odd. There were tie wraps included, but they were too big, and not enough for a neat installation.
The unit worked as advertised, but occasionally, the data would stop being received. Disconnecting the base from the computer and restarting the software resolved the issue. I have upgraded to the latest software, and it again stopped communicating with the unit. The distance between the unit and the base is about 60 feet, from one end of the house to the other.
It's unfortunate that the software has little to know diagnostics, and the menu systems are antiquated with multiple popups when you change a setting and save and exit.
In any case, overall, I'm OK with the unit. I will investigate 3rd party software to see if it resolves the connection issue.
Oh - the connection to the Weather Underground is how I'm doing most of my debugging since it has notification when your PWS doesn't respond.
>From Tycon: Have you tried the latest V1.7 of the software? Some of the issues with Windows has been addressed in the V1.7 software. Be sure to uninstall previous versions before installing V1.7
