Audiomoth stops recording
In Device Support
Sep 11, 2020
While I don't have an answer on how to fix this issue, I am encountering a similar problem with a batch of AudioMoths I just pulled out of the field. I programmed these AudioMoths to begin recording on July 15th, and record for 2 4-hour periods per day until battery failure. (~32 days) I programmed a batch of AudioMoths all at the same time, deployed them throughout June and early July and I am just starting to pick them up now. Of the 7 I have pulled from the field so far, only 2 recorded the expected amount of data, 1 recorded just 3 files (2 hours and 3 minutes worth of data) on July 15th, and the remaining 4 AudioMoths did not record anything at all. The only thing on each of those memory cards is the CONFIG text file. I am at a total loss on how this could have occurred, as the batteries of the ones that failed to record anything or only recorded for 2 hours are all still apparently full (>4.9V). When I plugged an AudioMoth (the one that recorded for 2 hours and then stopped) into the computer I did notice something funky going on with the clock though. The date appears to be stuck on July 15th and the time is moving extremely slowly. I have attached a 30 second video clip of what the Configuration App looks like when I plug one of these AudioMoths in. For reference the local time this clip was recorded should read (16:14:02 11/9/2020 UTC-7).
Trouble getting 2 recording periods to work

Thank you Dr. Rogers, It looks like I am running Version 1.2.1 ; Electron Version 3.0.0 ; AudioMoth-Hid module 1.0.19. I have been using the local time button in the configuration app (which is a really nice addition by the way), but I had turned that off and gone back to UTC because I thought that might be what was causing problem. That didn't seem to make a difference. The text fields for setting up a new recording period are the local times. I must have turned off the local time button after entering the time, (I had pressed add recording period before turning off local time) . The corresponding time in UTC is listed over in the recording period window.
