How do I set up the display for PRO+ 5-in-1 Weather Sensor (Model 06014M) to send to displays from the old weather station which are still functional? Thanks.

Displays are only receivers. They receive signals from your 5 in 1. Each display is independent. If you put up a new 5 in 1, any old display will have to be reset, then make sure the abc switch is set to the new 5 in 1 unit, and it will receive the signal. Sometimes you have to take the batteries out of the old display in order for it to see the new 5 in 1 sensor.

John, thanks for the prompt reply! I figured that was it, and will check on how to set the ABC switches on the old units, I can find that in manuals etc. for the old units, I imagine. 
I also have the old units hooked up to record the accuweather cvs file with their proprietary program, and though I don't see a USB port on the new display, if I can get the old display units to work they are already set up and should continue to poop out and record the main unit's data just fine.  
Thanks, again!!
Oh, and yes, I did remove the batteries...the old display was at least 15 years old and was still working with the original batteries! Even though almost all the functions had ceased working! Workhorse of a weather machine...
