I have been setting up my AudioMoths for the field, but I have been having a really hard time getting them record at both scheduled times. It is recording in the mornings right on schedule, but I cant get it to record during the afternoon window (01:00-05:00 UTC). I have tried re-configuring these several times now thinking I might have messed something up, but I don't really know what else to do.
I am using 64GB SanDisk Ultra cards formatted using the FAT32 Formatter at: (http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm
In the AudioMoth Configuration App - firmware version: 1.2.0, I have it set to record from 01:00-05:05 (UTC) and 11:40-15:45 (UTC). Each 4 hour and 5 minute block is setup to record 4 - 1 hour long recordings with a minute sleep in between.
Any Suggestions would be extremely helpful. I am at a loss, and can't deploy these until I get the scheduling figured out.
Was your problem every determined and solved? I am having similar issues - not getting recordings for my afternoon time period. Any insights would be helpful.
Great. When you deploy the device do you get no recordings at all in the afternoon period? One thing that might be causing confusion is that if you start the device going within one of the recording periods, it will initially wait before starting a recording so that it is on the same schedule as a device that was started outside. This means that if you set the period to be 12:00 - 16:00 with one hour recording and 1 minute waiting, if you start the device at 12:30 say, it will wait until 13:01 to start the first recording, having skipped the 12:00 - 13:00 one. Could this be what you are seeing?
If you update to the new firmware version 1.2.0 and the new config app version 1.2.1 you can set these times in local time which might also be easier.
In the screen shot you have attached, have you just pressed 'Add record period'? It seems strange that the time in the text fields doesn't match that in the recording list.
