Hello,
why I got no Credits for my WU http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/workunit.php?wuid=1504221?
How can the sensor send too many results although I use standard sensor and I only swithed in the project settings from "Update every 35 sek to 3 sekonds"?

I just want to deliver more details for the project.

"Too many results" is set after the result is marked as invalid, to avoid sending another result for the same WU, which does not make any sense here.

Now there's a question why your result was marked as invalid.
Could you please reduce runtime to a couple of hours ? With longer WU the stderr can't hold all the data and it's hard to say why it has failed.

i will reduce reduce runtime to a couple of hours. But my still running WU will use 24 hours.
I hope that there will be no more issues with this WU, I don``t want to loose credits because I do too mutch....
Please check if you can grand me credits for this WU although I might report to mutch resultd.

That's because the app is unable to find the sensor, please check the connections first.

Maybe you could be just a bit more precise about what you mean with soon:
does it mean for the end of august? for the end of September? for the end of 2013? :)
Thank you very much for your answer I really appreciate your no profit work in this project. For now I'm using a GMC-300 since a week but I wish to use soon mostly the official one also to compare the values between the two giving an help to release a stable (not beta) support for it...

I can't as loads of thinks are not depend of me...

Basically, the detectors are partly assembled and waiting for some parts and also some spare time of Ryszard (who assembly it).
Only what I can say is that new batch will not be ready before end of August :/

"Could not find any of the devices listed in sensors.xml: The specified device was not found"

Is your sensor plugged in to a working USB port? Is the display updating? Do you actually have a sensor? :)

Bonic and other linked in sites keep showing 0 credits. What is being done to correct the problem?

Works fine for me. It's just that you have no credit. And you have no credit because you have no sensors attached or working, all your results show:

Could not find any of the devices listed in sensors.xml: The specified device was not found

To correct the problem you need to find out why your sensors are not working, or try to buy some sensors if you do not have any (and there are currently none available).

Form the introduction on the front page of the project:

The project uses dedicated hardware sensor; without it the app does nothing and no credits are granted.
