Hi Toffbiker,

Sorry for the late response. I use the Linux-scripts from SourceForge.

It works really good. I use a dedicated (old) laptop (Linux). I had no Linux experience but I got it going :slight_smile: .
If you need help just let me know,

Kind regards,

This is my system.

Hi Toffbiker,

Depending on the file you have to fill in some details. You have to be patient for a week or 2. Currently I,m not around to help you. Keep an I eye on this site and I will help you in early januari. The file(s) (piko.db/piko_db.py) for reading data from the inverter are CLI (Command Line Interface) as far as I know these have to be started by typing in the path where the script is stored followed by parameters you want to show. There is another file “script for pvoutput.org” found under the tab “discussion” that need some input. This script pushes the inverter data to pvoutput. Remember it only runs under Linux.

Relax for a couple of days and we will get it going in januari.

Regards,
René
