@Bigfish

that’s because you aren’t reading the actual meter you’re reading the ihd (in home display).

You need to read the actual meter the one on the wall or in a box outside, it’ll appear blank and you need to wake it by pressing a button. It will show you the meter index in m3. Don’t send those kWh readings!

Hi @Bigfish,

I’m sure @woz will (edit did) follow up with more illumination… 😄

@25 quid what seems to be the problem other than that I may have made a completely incorrect assumption?

No, I was unclear. You beat me to the answer, so I just deleted mine and adjusted my postscript. In retrospect that doesn’t look very clear in isolation.

Originally I felt my answer was incomplete. So I’d said that I thought you would follow up with more info (as I knew we were both posting at the time). I should have deleted all or none of my original answer. Phew. Clearer?

@Bigfish listen to @woz’s excellent original answer and ignore this tangent. 😁

@25 quid haha, I knew that…:robot:

actually I did follow up with a link to meter reading, but only time will tell (or not)if my assumption is correct… 

are you up for breaking my $64000 meter reading spreadsheet yet? I keep disimproving it...(is that a word?)

I like tangents but I prefer satsumas

I love breaking things. Promise not to be cross?

Thanks guys, Woz I will give that a try as was just looking at a blank screen with a keypad with no instructions on the meter itself prior to the post lets hope it comes to life! :slight_smile:

I’m in mid rewrite, decided to make it easier to check it against a statement as it failed at the first hurdle (damn VAT...) nearly done...It’s only taken a month so far...
