    I just analyzed kessil controller ‘s signal with oscilloscope, and as expected it looks like a pwm signal under low pass filter (i.e triangular waves ), unlike true analog signal which is a sine curve

    Here is an image of the wave form

    I have published another bug fix release : https://github.com/reef-pi/reef-pi/releases/tag/0.8.2
    It has admin control button fixes (power off, reboot, reload etc), they were broken during recent code changes. Other than that there are several minor UI fixes, and couple of api/notification changes that will be exposed via UI in 0.9 release.

    Thanks for checking that out Somnifac.

    Ranjib, you are a workhorse....in the old days in Texas football they just said " you are a Hoss". So, now I just call you "Hoss".

    Any reason you arent using the MarsAqua, what did you switch over to? Was the PWM dimming working on it when you had it up?

    Ranjib/Hoss,
    0.8.2 up and running. I was finally able to change the Username and password with the admin buttons working now.
    The dashboard really is a nice summary screen. My one question is on the lighting chart.
    Since right now it is just reflecting your auto settings from the lighting tab. It seems like it would either be better located on that screen, or I was wondering if it would be possible to have that one shade in under the line graphs as you progress through the cycle. That way it shows you were you are in your ramping up or down. Though even a vertical line matching to the current time could work, but wouldn't be as cool.

    That’s doable. I am still experimenting with the dashboard , I am still unsure about the effectiveness of the light chart though, since it won’t change at all . But since we don’t have much , I put it there, it’s also a big better visualization that those 12 set sliders , particularly for multi channel lights

    I could see it as more useful if there was a dynamic aspect to the lighting, such as clouds, moon phase, etc...
    Otherwise, it could likely live on the lighting tab.
    The space could likely be filled as more modules come online (sensors, wave makers, dosing volumes etc...)

    I made the dimming mod it worked perfectly and I was very happy with them I also changed out some leds deeper blue then switched to kessil the reason why I purchased the mars aqua was because my DIY rig shorted out when my puffer splashed water on the driver board and I needed some thing temporally till my new tank showed up I should get rid of them I used them about 5 months

    To remove the .db you either need to be in that directory or give it the full path
    Try
    Code:
    rm /var/lib/reef-pi.db

    Figured it out. I had an extra reef-pi.db in var/lib/reef-pi. I deleted it and then when I started the page again I entered reef-pi reef-pi for the id and password I now have a working 0.8.2

    thanks Ryan. I searched for any extra .db files and had another. It said it was write protected and so I had to use sudo

    So decided to try this out, i got the raspberry pi hooked up, got the display to flip, and installed reef pi.
    When i go onto localhost i get asked for a username and pw. Tried the pw i setup to no avail. Assuming i missed a setting somewhere.

    Sorry for the trouble, the authentication bits were added very recently, and I dont have the docs ready yet.
