Hello, I have been lent two audiomoths by my phd supervisor for my study. I have followed all setup instructions and when I run the configuration, the time does not go black, but remains greyed out. Having searched through this forum, I thought it might have been a USB issue, so I purchased a usb data cable specifically. No dice, I'm afraid. I thought perhaps they are old and needed new firmware, and I have successfully flashed both devices with 1.2.2. The configuration app is still not recognising the units when I plug them in. I have been through the instructions meticulously. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? (Presumably this is a user error since it is happening to both units?) Thanks!
I have installed version 1.2.5. The app will not recognise local time. It registers 1969 when I select local time. I have installed new batteries in the AudioMoth, although I did not need to. I have rebooted my computer (Windows 10). I did not have this issue with 1.2.2. I did not have any recordings when I deployed it for 12 hours last night (33 degrees F this morning. Older batteries at 4.0 V.) That has never happened but may be unrelated and perhaps I did not throw the switch all the way to custom.. Nevertheless, I just test recorded in default mode and it recorded fine but the date on four files was screwy. What is going on? Can I get back to the older configuration app? After this I flashed the unit and it now contains firmware version 1.3.0. I then deleted the configuration app from the computer and loaded it fresh. It still will not recognise the correct local time. I have some time constraints on what I am doing. This problem does not help. SOLUTION: Finally, I added the new version of the app to the Windows Defender firewall, and that appears to have resolved my issue. Interestingly, prior to this solution, when I reinstalled the app it would put the icon in the tray, but it would not automatically create a shortcut. Now it does, and all is well.
