I’ve been seeing something unusual and wanted to check to see whether anyone else is encountering a similar issue.
About 30 seconds after drop, Roastime reports that the USB connection is lost. If I quickly unplug and reconnect the USB cable, Roastime detects the roaster and everything is fine, save for a little step in my roast curve where the software was not receiving data from the roaster.
If I had to guess, it’s been happening about 2/3 of the time, going back around 4-6 months.
I haven’t tried swapping USB cables yet but I think I’ll do that on the next roast. I’d think if it were really a cable issue, the problem would tend to recur throughout a roast.
As a tangent, it might be nice if the data logging between the Bullet and Roastime were such that the missing time were accounted for in the roast profile. The step I see in the roast curve suggests that Roastime is using its own time base when handling the samples from the roaster, rather than using elapsed time data from the roaster. If it were, it seems that glitches like this could be represented as a missing data segment along the x-axis of the roast graph.
