Neptune just released a new AOS update that enhances the Trident display tile and fixes a few non-Trident bugs.

@CrazyInside I’ll update mine tonight and let you know if I run into any problems.

I installed the new AOS update (5.05_6B19) and updated my Trident to version 12.  The AOS installation took longer than previous updates (about 30 - 40 minutes), but the Trident update was pretty quick.  I like the new detailed descriptions of what it's doing:

For full details of this AOS release, see https://forum.neptunesystems.com/showthread.php?27028-AOS-5-05_6B19-is-now-available!

@CrazyInside I'd recommend installing the update.

Update:

I just checked my latest Trident graph and noticed an increase in test times. I currently have mine set to test 8/4 times per day, so calcium & mag are tested at 00:00, 06:00, 12:00, and 18:00. Here are the times logged on the graph for calcium test results:

6/10/19 00:14:57 (15 minutes)
6/10/19 06:15:00 (15 minutes)
6/10/19 12:15:02 (15 minutes)
6/10/19 13:08:00 --- installed AOS update ---
6/10/19 18:39:39 (40 minutes)

I'll be curious to see if this was a one time increase, or if all tests will take that long now.  Next run is at midnight, so I guess I'm not going to bed for at least the next 45 minutes or so...

Where do you see how long the test takes?

Ah okay, yeah mine is between 14-16 min. I hope it’s not 40 min tests after the update, I might get some scolding from Paige if R2D2 is chatting away for that long 😂

My next test will begin in 5 minutes.  I'll report back how long it took.

Did you already install the new AOS update?

Not yet was going to do it when I get home in about an hour so let me know because I’ll hold off if it’s switching to 40 min

It finished at 00:17:12, so 17 minutes vs the previous average of 15 minutes.

It must have been a one-off glitch, or perhaps it did some addition initialization or priming after the update.  I know it ran the initialization process right after the update because that's when I captured the screenshot above.  But no idea why it ran 40 minutes on that first test after the update.

Sweet I’ll go ahead and update then, thanks for the info

RussM posted this comment on the Neptune forums:

“It is normal for the first set of tests after a Trident firmware update to take longer - it tests, then immediately validates those results by running another set of tests. Subsequent tests will take the usual amount of time.”

Good to know.
