There is no RTC on the Edison or on the Raspberry Pi

I just installed the newer dev on my PI's and now the screen is like like only half the screen is working. like only every other line is working. thats not a completely good description of the screen, but it's now impossible to completely read the text.

@PedanticAvenger how are you rebooting it? If you don’t cut power, and just use the black button to power cycle, it shouldn’t lose power or time.

Does xdrip work with the G6? Im on the verge of upgrading. I wanted to do xdrip with the rest api setting until i could us lookout. How far in developement is it with OpenAps?

Ok, figured out what is going on. @ecc1 there is a RTC on the edison. So long as there is battery power to appropriate pins it will hold time even if not fully powered on. @scottleibrand The issue is one that very few users will encounter. If you are using a typical home wifi time isn't an issue for establishing the connection, network will come up and ntp will set the time. However it doesn't seem to update the hardware clock, that needs to be done via the command hwclock --systohc --utc (if you want the system clock to store utc). I'm considering a script to check if ntp is active and has been updated and if yes, then periodically ensure the hardware clock is updated (it should be fine after the first event but I believe in a healthy dose of mild paranoia). But first I need to consider the use-case. I encountered this by doing setup in different locations and playing around with various things not sure it's worth doing just for this.

Hi, I have 2 questions: I just received a Medtronic 712 from my endocronologist and I want to setup an OpenAPS loop. But I read in their documentation that not all features are supported, but they only mentioned SMB. How much of a deal is SMB and would it still be worth to setup a loop without it? And I want to use a Raspberry Pi plus the Explorer Hat, but there are 2 options for frequencies. I'm from Europe, so it says that the 868 MHz would be best, but is that always the case or is it pump dependent?

@PedanticAvenger There is already code that runs that if you can't access the NTP server, it get the time from the pump and sets the edison to that time.

@Bender1061 again, was at setup stage so pump comms wasn't running yet. But good to know.

@rofid12_twitter the pump serial number will include WW if from Europe or NA if from North America. That should determine which radio frequency to use (868 or 915 MHz, respectively)

@rofid12_twitter SMB is an advanced feature - e.g. You won't want to use it for a few weeks or months , so if an x12 is what you have I'd start using with that and you can always switch pumps later. Definitely still worth setting up without SMB.

Hello, I am running autotune nightly. The basal adjustments/ISF adjustments work great. Carb ratio adjustments...not so much. Autotune thinks my carb ratios should be higher than they need to be so Ill often spike after meals due to the algorithm enacting a 0.0U basal (I bolus with my pump's carb ratio and since openaps is using autotune's carb ratio, it thinks I have too much iob for the carbs eaten). Is there a way to disable only the carb ratio portion of autotune so that the algorithm uses my pump's carb ratio? Thank you!

The only other solution I can think of is inputting ghost carbs into Nightscout proportional to the difference in carb ratios between my pump's settings and autotune's settings. It's not a great solution though because of the extra work and because autotune's carb ratio changes everyday.

@ecc1 how critical is the frequencies issue? Here are the pictures of the pumps that I have:

@bmammon lying about carbs wouldn’t work well, as autotune would further adjust CR to reflect how much insulin you actually end up delivering for meals. It sounds like you’re trying to use a CR that is more aggressive to compensate for insulin timing effects. You might want to look at using Eating Soon temp targets to make oref0 more aggressive for meals you know will absorb quickly, and/or look at tuning insulinPeakTime

@tzachi-dar the 722 is a CA (Canada/Australia) model; I forget which band they use, but others here will know

According to the store, Canada/australia is also 915 so I'm filling lucky.

@tzachi-dar also, you might want to redact the numeric serial numbers from those pump photos if you're concerned about bad guys controlling your pump

I'll do that next time. That said, these guys will have to be very close to me, if I understand correctly.

Does anybody know which band is used in Singapore?
