pc connect and access

Two problems/questions:

Have had a 5in1 connected via PC Connect to MyAcuRite (and its predecessor) for years.  Worked great.  Love being able to access the data from PC and phone app.  Last month added an Access with 3 remote sensors to MyAcuRite.  Left the 5in1 as it was (i.e., did not add it to Access).  Seemed to be working just fine until yesterday when 5in1 quit reporting.  After checking to be sure PCConnect was running (also restarted, disconnected USB cable & reconnected – all the things that worked in the past) still nothing.  After reviewing this site noted a comment about possible reporting conflict between PCConnect and Access – wasn’t sure it this was just if device was connected to both for data sharing.  So turned off “sharing” in PC Connect and then added 5in1 to the Access.  Seems to be reporting now...  will this continue?  Is this the best way or was there a different issue with PC Connect and can/should I go back to having 5in1 reporting via PC Connect?  Will PC Connect still capture data from the 5in1 while reporting is via Access?

 

Any progress in making it possible for users to schedule data downloads from MyAcurite?  With PC Connect I have scheduled data downloads to my PC.  Convenient and ensures I have access to historical data (assuming that will keep working – see above).  With the Access & 3 sensors, which transmit directly to MyAcuRite there does not seem to be a way to schedule automatic data downloads of any interval, and no more than previous months data can be downloaded.  Not so convenient.  Additionally the data download is a multistep process – first request the data download from Chards&Details, then wait for email with link to data, then download/save data to selected location.  In searching through site/conversations sounds like users have been asking about this for years so...  any update?  Any plans to provide this capability to users?
