how accurate is the ~/src/EdisonVoltage/voltage binary ?
I ask, because I notice it always seems to hover ~ 70%

Is the rig plugged in?
The charging voltage is equivalent to the voltage seen when discharging a ~60-70% full battery.

Rig is no plugged in
4500 mah battery and was looking through code to see how it got stats. I usually see ~ 70%. Just wondered how accurate it was

Hi, I want to ask if Explorer HAT is realy needed for Pi Zero W to operate with Pump and get CGM data?

I have at home Omega2+ with power dock and bluetooth dongle. Would it work with OpenAPS?

for some reason, two of my Edison rigs suddenly decided to stop talking to wifi.
any suggestions?
i can talk via serial (and sometimes get them to talk to the net with bluetooth.) hadn’t changed wpa_config. beginning to suspect that my Google WiFi’s were updated in a way that breaks things

is there an easy way to check how the use of wpa_supplicant.config may be breaking ?

Has anyone updated to Android 9 (Pie) yet?
Just want to make sure no compatibility issues.

@zygivasi the Explorer HAT is needed to use radio frequency to communicate between the rig and the pump

Just set up the G6, amazing how without calibration it is matching up closely to my G4 numbers (on a 7 day old sensor). I currently use xDrip+ to capture the numbers directly from a G4 w/Share receiver and upload to NS, now debating whether to set up the xDrip+ nightly build to get G6 numbers, or to instead set up a ShareBridge (using the NightScout instructions) on my Heroku. What have people been using?

Aug 23 2018 14:40
Does the xDrip+ nightly w/G6 use a proprietary algorithm, or is it just pulling the # that the transmitter is reporting?
My concern with using xDrip+ as a receiver is the notion that it might disagree with the Dexcom algorithm, which I heard was a bit of a reliability issue with the G5 (very occasionally xDrip+ would report a higher number rather than go into noise mode like the Dexcom receiver was more apt to do, which I thought was why the recommendation with xDrip+ on G4/G5 was to enable SMB only with COB)
Zach Gohr
@zgohr
Aug 23 2018 14:43
in my experience, initially it was shwoing th eexact same number as the receiver (i’m running both) but it was off quite a bit for the first 24 hours so subsequent calibrations have them off by a bit but i haven’t noticed them diverging

Random hardware question that may have been asked in the past so apologies if that is the case. Given my personal circumstances the Pi hardware just is NOT power efficient enough and I'm wondering if anyone has looked at the TechNexion PICO-IMX6 as a pin compatible path to move forward with the Edison model. Of course we likely don't know if this is as good with power but given that they have a linux image for it and I should be able to plug the explorer into it and go. Willing to try it certainly.

Could you recommend an antenna I could get for Edison without onboard antenna? Ideally something as small as Edison’s onboard antenna, I’m hoping to keep footprint small and use one of existing 3d printer cases (which I woudn’t like to modify because of external antenna)

Decided to check my numbers/ratio's while waiting on my pi HAT board to get replaced. So I checked basals over couple of days with fasting and they look good. Today try to check ISF, so fasted this morning, was steady at about 6 mmol, took 2 dex tabs which brought me up to 9 over about an hour. Then took 1 unit of insulin (FIASP), which with my current ISF of 2.8 should have brought me back to 6 again. Now, an hour later, I am at 10 :( worried now that I am getting absorption issues or resistance.
wfeddern
@wfeddern
Aug 23 2018 16:39
anyone else see similar with fiasp? how much can openaps help to mitigate those sort of issues? I worry that it will stack insulin while its resistant, then I will get lows later.

Lots of people have more success mixing 50% Fiasp with Novolog or Humalog
live4sw
@live4sw
Aug 23 2018 16:59
@wfeddern How long have you been using fiasp?
I had amazing results for 2 months, middling results for 2 more, than had such major resistance issues that i went back to Humalog. I know some others have had good experiences mixing, I just am not comfortable doing it
I've found that as long as I stay lo-carb and am careful about prebolusing, my #'s have been as good as they ever were on Fiasp. The main fiasp benefit was just not having to prebolus (which is great of course).
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Aug 23 2018 17:10
(And the ratio doesn’t have to be exactly 50% - just about any mix will still get you nearly all the Fiasp speed-up.)
wfeddern
@wfeddern
Aug 23 2018 17:29
will give that a try. What is the easiest way to do the mix? when filling the resevoir?
@live4sw been on Fiasp for about 5 months now

Hi all, all of a sudden my OpenAPS loop stopped working today (Edison Board rig with G5). That happened before but with a hard reboot, the Edison started working again. But today I rebooted multiples times, but could not fix the issue. I tried to run the “the setup script” in Putty and at the end of the step-by-step installation I got the following error message: Checking openaps 0.2.1 installation with --nogit support
openaps 0.2.1-dev
Checking /root/myopenaps: mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/root/myopenaps’: File exists
/root/myopenaps initialized
/root/src/decocare/ already exists; pulling latest 0.1.0-dev
fatal: unable to connect to github.com:
github.com: Name or service not known
Does anybody know where to start with solving the problem? I cannot find the answer.

@live4sw fyi you can use the builtin Dexcom algorithm with runs on the g5 or g6 transmitter with xdrip+ (or xdrip-js). Of course there is always the risk of a bug but in theory the glucose should match exactly since they are provided by the transmitter. Alternatively it can work with raw data and a custom algorithm.
live4sw
@live4sw
Aug 23 2018 19:38
Thanks. If I use the Dexcom algorithm, I won't get raw though, right? I was previously just using xdrip+ to pull from a Dexcom G4/Share receiver and really liked how I got raw and still was getting the Dexcom reading as well.

You'll still get the raw. @live4sw
@0hJay Lookout or logger only support Dexcom

hey has anyone tied to follow the directions for the Pi with explorer hat lately. I'm finally trying to get through it, but once you've installed the script, and are trying to log into root. it does work. you have to log into pi. If you log in afterwards with sudo su- and then check the /etc/ssh/sshd_config the file only has the PermitRootLogin yes inside it and nothing else. Now I don't know if there is supposed to be anything else in that file. And generally that tells me when that happens is the kernal is not really using that file anymore. but I don't know that for a fact on this case.
so wonder if a new version of Rasparian was just released or not. so maybe something is broke

my sshd_config is the same and is working. If you try a login as root and look at the /var/log/auth.log file, can you see anything in there that would show why its failing?

@Bender1061
Aug 23 2018 22:48
says
Aug 23 18:45:47 localhost login[442]: FAILED LOGIN (1) on '/dev/ttyGS0' FOR 'root', Authentication failure
but what it does is

Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 IronGiant ttyGS0
IronGiant login: root

Login incorrect
IronGiant login:

Aug 23 2018 22:53
have you tried resetting the password after doing su to root?
are you using ssh to login actually?, would expect to see a pts/ device, not ttyGS0
John Benjamin
@Bender1061
Aug 23 2018 22:54
it did run the entire script without failing. so i did change the password for root and for pi. and I've logged in to root with sudo su- and I have even tried changing the password again
I'm using serial
cause the new changes to windows 10 that is blocking you from using Hostname to find a device
maybe I'll try the IP address
wfeddern
@wfeddern
Aug 23 2018 22:56
That is probably issue. Try adding ttyGS0 to the /etc/securetty file
or it may work to just rename the securetty file
