Beta Testers wanted

Post by jonathan »

Hi all, I'm looking for some help testing the latest solar dashboard software.

Warning: Beta testers will receive the latest development firmware through the update channel automatically. While we don't intend to break anything, it's possible that a beta software will cause functions to break and/or automatic updates to fail. Also there is a possibility of SD card corruption. In this case you would need use the manual flashing tool and instructions to recover your solar dashboard.

Please let me know here if you'd like to participate and then set your update channel to "edge" in the settings menu of the dashboard.

Thanks Larry. The latest firmware on the edge channel I'm testing allows selecting default views in the settings menu, and shows battery temperature as a new metric. To force an update, click reboot under power menu. Updates only happen on reboot.

At least for me the beta is not saving display options i choose. Anyone else seeing this? I am a mac user so maybe a mac browser issue?

Hi Jonathan, I installed beta firmware to see the changes, the update went great without any issues, everything appears to be working correctly while working in localhost but once accessing the dashboard remotely it doesn't show the battery temp nor it keeps the selected views off, also while accessing remotely this text keeps popping up "Troubling Developments! I Wasn't Able to Check for Improvements. Don't You Want Me to Improve? Please Connect me to an Internet Enabled WiFi". Cleaned cash and all other browsing data, no change.
Please let me know if I can help any other way.
Thank you for working on this!

I can be a beta tester. I just installed my dashboard device that has been sitting for a few years in my cabin... Now home so I can mess with solar stuff :-)


BTW... I've got ESP32/Home Assistant development experience if that helps.

Hello Jonathan,
so since I installed the experimental firmware everything seemed to work correctly up to abouth 3 weeks back when I noticed I lost all the historical data reported on the graphs and about 2 weeks ago device lost connection to the dashboard and it won't accept the settings to connect back to it, when login details are entered device seems to be unable to save these details and appears to be stuck (dial spinning indicating savings but never ends) any idea what to do to restore the connection to the dashboard?
