New AirSense 11: a few questions

When I packed up the old machines (autoset 10 and vauto 10) and put the Air11 at my bedside I had everything strewn across the bed. When I was done that small black piece had appeared and I have no idea where it came from!  Oh-jeez (I hate leftover pieces LOLz...) Does anybody recognize it?

As for the clock idiocy, I'm bemused. So I went and found the time zone setting and it's set to GMT-7 (mountain standard time or pacific daylight time) even though I'm in Illinois and the machine was shipped to me from Kansas City and I'm pretty sure that everyone in Kansas City knows that Illinois is in the same central time zone they are! I found the settings json file, and it says
TimeZoneFeature":{"TimeZoneOffset":"-07:00"}

I'd like to make a formal feature request that OSCAR look at the time zone in the settings file, and then look at the time zone that's on the computer that's running OSCAR, and then convert the cpap time to the local time. As long as the timezone set on the machine isn't so far off that the machine noon happens when you are asleep, that should be OK.

Has anyone had their machine long enough to figure out if the cpap syncs the time with the server when it phones home? Having the time zone be the setting is, I think, the right way to do it. The wiping the data off the card when you reset the time zone is a classic ResMed idiot savant move -- come up with a good, solid, clever process, but then have one step that they do in a mind-numbingly stupid way!

It seems to me that the right place to fix the time stupidity is within OSCAR. Because we (by which I mean the OSCAR developers, not me personally) are smart enough to work around their dumbness.
Sorry, your images didn't come through. The app time is off like on the machine. It's a screwed up software implementation by Resmed along with their filters.

Not a big deal though, expected that and bought a 16gb Sandisk card, popped it in and worked out of the box.  Formats to FAT32 automatically.

Second point regarding the filters, yeah, the supplied filter is absolutely embarrassing.  It's like one-ply toilet paper lol.  What I've been doing so far as a stopgap is that I noticed the AS11 filters are the same *length* (horizontal) as AS10's, but not the same height (vertical).  I've been kinda just folding down the filter a little bit so it fits in the door, and I noticed it still closes fine, so that's what I'm going with for now since I still have a gazillion AS10 filters on hand.

I read a report that the AS11 likes to "eat" SD cards and the split time at noon is an issue for some (like me). Someone suggested changing the UTC time (like +8) on the A11 and then experimenting with time offsets on Oscar. I think Oscar is quite dumb and restrictive compared to SleepyHead which I still use with my AS10.

well that sucks... Does this work any better?

I figured out that the plastic piece is a blank that fits into the card slot when there is no card, which seems handy.

Good to know that the drive on the cpap destroys cards. I have a pretty obsessive-compulsive backup scheme that has rescued me from failed cards before. And fortunately I've got piles of cards around because the hubs uses them with his arduino-based detectors.

Hmm888,
I'm curious, how is OSCAR labeled dumb and restricted compared to the no longer updated sleepyhead? I'm guessing you want to modify the charts in a way that would disqualify OSCAR from reporting unaltered what had happened and thereby eliminating OSCAR as a reliable, unedited report.

RE: New AirSense 11: a few questions
I bought my AS11 outright because I couldn't wait for my DME since they are still backordered.

1. My SD card was present in a little cardboard holder located with the rest of the documentation in the travel bag. I had to install it after taking out the SD blank from the machine.

3. I use a single air filter without doubling up.

I sense baiting and gaslighting on your part in a troll-like manner. Your guess is wrong. I won't respond any further.

Unfortunately not. The image is not visible here but copying and pasting shows. You might want to use the image option in the post tool bar or use an image uploading website like this. If you're using this forum to post images, I recommend you preview your post before you hit save or post.

Odd -- I'm apparently not understanding the security model at dropbox, which is where I store the photos. The picture is visible to me in both of my posts, and also in your quote of my post where you say you can't see the picture. 

Good to know...

RE: New AirSense 11: a few questions
After reading your post above I tried the dropbox link. I was able to see the photo of the SD card and carrier. I'm wondering if this is a location restriction.

DropBox can be a little tricky.  For the img you want to post here remove the dl=0 on the end and add raw=1 and it should work like so:

The bbcode looks like this now:
