@elodaille01 - yep, when I enter carbs via apple watch (NS), I almost always use the easy bolus if I need to bolus. When I use the bolus wizard on the pump, I almost always put in carb counts there.

Hi all. Above is a screen shot of my NS screen...I managed to get my CGM stuff flowing by running openaps first-upload but, the pills still don't seem right...not seeing battery data, sensor/canula age. Hoping someone can offer some advice. I seem to be getting some data from the pump through the rig but, not everything. I can send loop log info if that is useful.

Pancreabble questions if anybody could help:

  1. When I run systemctl start bluetooth.service I get the message that "Job for bluetooth.service failed. See 'systemctl status bluetooth.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details." So far I've tried updating to BlueZ 5.46 but no change. Bluetooth tethering to my phone appears to work though so maybe this doesn't mean much?

  2. I'm getting hung up on the step to install & add Pancreabble as an OpenAPS vendor. I've had to stop at the command openaps device add pbl pancreabble /dev/rfcomm0 There is no /dev/rfcomm0 on my rig; does anybody know the new path?

a question for all loopers using an edison - what range do you get between the pump and the rig?
I am getting -80 RSSi at about 6 meters range
fidoman
@efidoman
Jul 30 2017 10:44
I had a new MM sensor on yesterday and it gave me wonky readings. MM says 82 when meter says 188 and then later on a dangerous situation where it was reading 155 and my actual BG level was 41. After this, I set a temporary target of 160 for 10 hours before going to sleep. Now, the medtronic sensor seems to have settled down. The last couple of sensors have only lasted 3 days before going wonky (usually showing low BG levels when actual BG is high). Is this behavior usually caused by a bad lot of sensors? or could it be a dying medtronic transmitter?
@LilDucky - I don't look much at the RSSi because my edison / explorer board almost always works if I'm in the same room as the rig. As a matter of fact, we rented a 3 story place near the beach for vacation this year and I could leave it in the bedroom on the 2nd floor and it worked reliably throughout the entire home.

@LilDucky - The openaps docs say to order Mouser 66089-0930. Are the docs wrong on the part number for the antenna?

Jul 30 2017 11:13
@ericfeibelman I also had strange readings with one MDT sensor. After 2 days it started measuring +/- 100 for some hours. In fact I was also very low - I don't know if MDT has problems with that.
@ericfeibelman I am currently thinking about switching over to Dexcom. I am completely sick of the distance between pump and transmitter. It normally doesn't work from one pocket to the other. 😞
fidoman
@efidoman
Jul 30 2017 11:28
@CaptainBalou - I am considering that move as well, but for accuracy reasons mostly. I have also noticed that the pump and MDT transmitter have trouble communicating all the time. They usually connect up, but you would think it would work all the time with a freshly charged transmitter and a brand new battery in the pump.
fidoman
@efidoman
Jul 30 2017 11:36
I like the simplicity and easy offline mode with MDT CGM though. What other hardware parts are required for getting dexcom g4 to NS -> openaps? I know I've seen some docs for this but I'm unclear on what exactly is required.
does https://github.com/openaps/openxshareble allow direct communication between g4 transmitter and the openaps rig?
fidoman
@efidoman
Jul 30 2017 11:44
My theory on the first day wonkiness of my latest MDT sensor is that I calibrated too much and during times of rapid BG change. I am going to really try to only calibrate when IOB is low and COB is low and BG levels are mostly running in a flat line. I know ... it's hard to find that time for a type 1 unless he/she is sleeping. ;->
fidoman
@efidoman
Jul 30 2017 11:53
I see this in the docs and I'm guessing it is an inexpensive solution if you have an android phone. I do have one and I suppose it means I wouldn't have to buy the dexcom receiver if I use the android phone.
If you have an Android phone, you can use the xDrip app to get your data from the Dexcom to Nightscout, to then be used in OpenAPS.
LilDucky
@LilDucky
Jul 30 2017 12:10
@ericfeibelman we are waiting on Medtronic transmitter.
Part number I gave is what I modeled my antenna from. The other one is similar
We are going for medtronic because of offline loop too.
LilDucky

Have a dead transmitter coming too for R&D, battery replacement should be possible too. Looking at antenna mods for better range if possible,
fidoman
@efidoman
Jul 30 2017 12:23
Sounds good. I'm going to stick with MDT for a while longer due to the simplicity. I think that calibrating while BG levels are stable (not rising or falling sharply) is critical. Going to pay close attention and see if it makes an accuracy difference.
I don't have battery issues with MDT. It charges up every 6 days and it only takes it about 30 minutes to fully charge. Another plus for MDT.

anyone have any luck replacing batteries on a G4 that one of the top tabs has broken off of? Hate throwing this G4 out but can't seem to get it to put mv across the to contact points on the back. The black stuff you see is a "wire glue" which is electrically conductive... I'd hoped would help but didn't
this is battery change #2 for this G4 fwiw..

I'm still trying to troubleshoot my NightScout setup from last night...this is what my screen looks like. I seem to be getting cgm info and other info from the pump/rig but, am missing much of the info in the rest of the gui...I don't have much to compare to other than screen shots of other peoples NS screens that I found online. I'm using MDT Enlite if that makes a difference. Hoping someone that has had an issue like this can contact me or if someone can help me troubleshoot, I would be very grateful. I'll send my pump loop log too in case that sheds any light.

Steve Lund
@902Lund
Jul 30 2017 17:24
@drnoname82_twitter I initially bought it pre-flashed but have since re-flashed several times due to issues like this and the fact that I'm quite noobish with this kind of stuff. I found the Jubilinux folder in my downloads but, can't find where it says what version it is. Based on the dates, it looks like I probably have 0.2.0 based on the date that it was released. I'll just re-flash with an older version to be safe. I really appreciate the advice Thanks!

just thought I'd share something I haven't seen talked about regarding storage of G4 transmitters. When you put them back into the plastic container they arrive in the magnet does cause the internal switch to switch off (meaning batteries will not be "on") the G4. I've seen some discussion WRT whether the internal switch was a "one time" type device but it is not.

yup.. just replaced the 2 batteries from the G4 in the photo above. Voltage across the pins is 215. Reinserted into the plastic tray that the transmitter comes in will flip the internal switch leading to no voltage. Save you G4's... put 'em back in the tray when not in use!!

Hello All. 1st time in. I've been reading through all the openap etc... so i'm looking for maybe some direction. I use medtronic and have a carelink. In all the builds i've looked at I don't really see anything about Alarms. I have access to pc/mac/android/ etc... and can build whatever with edison or pi. My biggest concern is being able to get an alarm loud enough for me to hear. Ideas?

PCTamer - One note, the carelink that i started with was very frustrating. The range is in inches and is very unstable. When you go to the explorer board with an edison it is like the sun coming up from a moonless night.
The old edison with a TI stick is still very reliable and is in use use my stationary home rig.

i do remember the edison board though. what was the advantage of also using the ti stick?
jordan-berger
@jordan-berger
Jul 30 2017 20:17
Nothing. It was just legacy from my evolution. PI with carelink. Edison with development board and TI stick. Edison on explorer board.
I also used sparkfun boards before the explorer board. same dimensions but no connection to the cgm so you had to have a TI stick.
jordan-berger
@jordan-berger
Jul 30 2017 20:24
The TI stick powered by a wall plug in the development board has better range for me than the explorer board. It also has a button you can reset the connection without affecting the rig. Not worth buying, but worth keeping.
PCTamer
@PCTamer

having a bit of an ...ok.. so ... discussion with myself. (I have read, re-read 3x read the docs... ) but am thinking... This Christmas I'm going to the Dominican Republic for 8 days. Really contemplating how/what to do. Apparently there's wifi... but I think that's wifi in the sense that a person could periodically pick up email... not wifi in the sense of openasp wifi requirements. My current set up is G4, xdrip+, android, EB/Edison, 522 pump. I'm thinking all in, the best way to continue to loop is adding a pebble to the mix. I look to others for thoughts. Paramount is, I don't want to ring up a huge data charge with my phone. Canadian plans (yes I'm a Cannuck) suck huge and I don't want to return with great T1D care but a whopper bill..... Looking to my esteemed ITB friends for thoughts and help....and absolutely would welcome any PMs on the topic.

good evening everybody ! these afternoon, I BT tethered with success for the first time (until now, I used the hotspot wifi)..I entered the corresponding URL in my XdripAPS (found on papertrail) and all was ok..but what is weird is that, when I check it now on my Edison (looking at the specific moment I was BT tethering) (note : papertrail is full and I just delete all, that is why I look at it that way), the last digit is not the same ...how could it work today with a different digit at the end (8 instead of 1) ? @Kdisimone you told me that a 198.162.xx.x address was not a BT address, but I confirm that mine is written like that..

(note : sorry I BT tethered one time before but had forgotten to enter the right URL, so openAPS didn't work, of course)

Thanks @scottleibrand! Is there any advantage to doing it one way over the other? Is there a way to use oref0 dev with a simple script since I already have 0.2.0?

@cameronrenwick - check out the offline options in the docs. If you're using an android phone for xDrip+ already you're pretty much good to go.

@ericfeibelman No glue what could be another setup for easy offline looping. I am considering DanaR with OpenAPS these days… That could be a good option.

@902Lund that doesn't currently work, unless you have working Linux drivers for the Dana
Sorry @CaptainBalou

You might want to consider AndroidAPS if you have a Dana R

@tim2000s ok.. so here's where I'm a bit confused. If I don't want to use data on my android, I turn it off but then that doesn't allow me to use a hotspot either. (data has to be on to allow hotspot). That then means my phone will connect to whatever cell it close and I'll get hit with this massive charge. Maybe this is a my phone/android/my provider thing... but is there a way that ppl are turning off the cell aspect of their phone yet still preserving the ability to connect xrdrip+/rig/android?
has anyone come up with a method to plug an xdrip+ into their rig (similar to how the dexcom receiver plugs in). Would this not then make a true off-line hardware setup?

Hmm. Sounds like a provider setup. Mine works with cellular data disabled.
