Title: GRLevel3 down?
Post by: jgosney on September 14, 2016, 02:33:58 PM
I've been using GRLevel3 (version 1.79) for a few years now but a few weeks ago it stopped working.  At first, I thought perhaps the feed from OHX was down but in switching to different sites, nothing seems to be working.

Is there a bigger issue with GRL that I'm not aware of?

v1 is no longer able to receive up-to-date radar data. You'll have to update to version 2.

Yes, in June the servers URL changed (http://www.grlevelx.com/owners/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=9742) and an update patch was put out. IMO, it wasn't communicated really well, but a quick update to v2.51  (http://www.grlevelx.com/owners/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=9822)puts you back in business.

Thanks all.  After learning about this, I went out to their website.  I found out they have a forum and on their forum found a thread about this.  Yes, you are right.  Unless you frequent their forum, there was no other notification.

BUT, I did found out that if you go into FILE | POLLING and change it from "use URL" to "use FTP", version 1 starts working again.  They didn't mention how long this method would continue to work but it bought me some time until I can get around to updating.

I did download the 2.50 version (free trial) and it looks impressive so I will definitely be upgrading at some point soon.
