    No Restore Hot-Button?

    Working with my HM today trying to sort out an issue after flashing a snapshot firmware I found myself contemplating a fresh build and booting with the "no restore" option. It struck me that it would surely be nice if there were a no restore shortcut, like the F1 (or whatever key) at boot time...

    Blower on Above XX%...

    I'm testing out the new blower settings, "On Above XX%" and I am a bit confused, or should I say it is not behaving as I had envisioned... My blower settings are Min=0 Max=100 Startup Max=100 On above=50 I've got the HM blowing at 100% and the web page shows the fan running 50%? If I set On...

    Change/Add Port the Heater Meter is listening on....

    I decided to make this post because recently Bryan shared with us how to make the HM listen to a port other than Port 80, which may be locked down on some routers. It's rather simple to do, the code to get it done is: # To add port 8080 uci add_list lucid.http.address=8080 uci commit lucid...

    Heater Meter V4.2.3 build questions

    OK, got my HMv4.2.3 board nearly built up tonight but have a few questions. On the image below, do I need to put jumpers where I drew the (8) red lines (2 per probe I assume)? Next, it looks like there should be a capacitor below each pair of those jumpers? What value cap should go there...

    Problem with latest Firmware Snapshot

    I fired up the pit tonight for my first cook with the latest firmware snapshot installed and have run into a problem. I am getting "Probe Noise" on the pit probe, which I thought I liked at first until I realized the probes were already warmed up enough to register... If I went to manual fan...

    Wish list...

    Watching the development log I see you have been doing lots of work on the Heater Meter lately, so I thought perhaps this is a good time to put a wish list out there... You've covered lots of bases already, lowering the noise level and adding the filters to the probe line(s) should be a nice...

    Servo Booster...

    I had improperly posted this topic in the development log for discussion, I have made some initial findings so I decided to post a fresh thread here... I have been experiencing some crazy servo behavior when running the servo over a very long CAT5 cable (~50ft I would guess). The servo would...

    Need advice from Vision (B) Kamado owners...

    I need to make a grill mount plate for a Vision B Kamado for my Uncle to mount a Roto-Damper, unfortunately I can't seem to find a Vision Kamado to inspect the vent and make measurements. I am wondering if anyone out there has made a mount plate for the Vision B that can be inserted and removed...

    How to use NoRestore option?

    I've been having some trouble with my HMv4.1 connecting to my wifi, so I wanted to start out fresh. I re-imaged the SD card and want to use the NoRestore option but don't think it is working right cause upon first boot the system seemed to reboot a few seconds after it powered up (assuming that...

    HMv4.0 to HMv4.1?

    One of the actual electronic differences between the HMv4.0 and HMv4.1 boards is the way the blower is regulated. HMv4.0 pulses the ground to regulate speed, HM4.1 pulses the 12v side instead, which simplifies wiring cause the servo and blower can now share a ground. This, however, makes the...

    General Raspberry Pi thread...

    Recently I pulled my Raspberry Pi out of my Heater Meter to experiment using it as a media center and boy was I surprised! I installed the FREE XBMC (app and OS bundled together in one simple image) on a spare SD card and she booted right up. Plugged right into my flat screen via HDMI and after...

    INTRODUCING: the "Roto Damper"

    *Update, 2015: The RD3 came together this summer and I think it's the best Roto Damper yet! It's built around the 50mm Delta blower, model BFB0512VHD (Digikey, Mouser), it can only run this blower, no substitutes. That's good news though, since the Delta BFB0512VHD blower is now the default...

    Email not working?

    So far I haven't used email/alarms with my HeaterMeter, but with the recent update to the alarms config I thought I would give them a try. Unfortunately they don't seem to be working for me.... I've gone into the network diagnostics section and Ping, TraceRoute and NSLookup work just fine, and...

    Auto Tune?

    Bryan, I've noticed other PID controllers have an "Auto-Tune" function that will learn the proper PID settings for a pit on it's own. This is about the ONLY feature I have seen in another controller that you haven't covered with the HM. I am wondering if you have given any thought to adding a...

    Dead Heater Meter... I hate the rain...

    I decided to leave my HM on last night to let the new ping pong valve work and try to gather some data for PID tuning. Would you know it we were hit with unexpected rain, when I woke up to dark skies I had a sinking feeling... When I got out to the HM it was still on, display was on but I moved...

    Runaway temps? Cheap fix/long story....

    I started out using the Heater Meter on a typical cheapo water smoker, with the air vents closed off and fan blowing through my "air burner" it worked like a charm, holds the temperature like magic! Here is a picture of my home made "air burner" that I made out of 3/4" copper. I love this...

    High Heat Cooking???

    One of the things that I was really looking forward to when I was building my Heater Meter was cooking pizza's in my Kamado grill. (which I didn't own yet at the time...) Recently I got my first Kamado grill, or as I call it, the FauxMado, because it is the Char Griller Kamado Kooker which is...

    Possible bug?

    I've seen some strange behavior of my HM that I would like to report in case it might be a bug. Occasionally I have had the probes reset to DISABLED and the display setting change from 4-line to two line. It's not a big deal cause if I change them back and save everything is corrected. It is a...

    Manual Fan Mode?

    I am messing around with my servo for the first time and want to try to calibrate it, the WIKI says it's best to enter manual fan mode, but for the life of me I can find info on how to set fan to manual mode? I searched the forum, page after page, no dice. I know it's simple but the answer...

    Linux help/advice...

    Since I have built my HM + rPi I realize my Linux knowledge is woefully lacking. I have been working with computers since the DOS days, still remember most of those old DOS commands, so trying to navigate Linux for the HM was very frustrating to me (not knowing any of the Linux commands). I've...
