Re: Reboot causes

Is your static IP address within the DHCP address range? Is your RSPi also a static IP? Could they be the same address?
Can you set the Serial logging to level 4 and connect to the ESP via USB and a terminal program? Watch the logging and see if you get any clue there.

Hi All, It is true, and the data sheet even eludes to the fact, that the GPIO are 5V tolerant but here's the rub.

Re: ds1820 ThingSpeak second sensor is not updating

Hi,

I think the problem is that you have two idx values that are set to 1. Make the display have an idx value greater than 8 and see if that help.
