    Phidget temperature help

    I am trying to implement a phidget 1051 (single temperature sensor) kit and failing utterly. There are so many things I don't know and can't seem to find in the documentation or forums.

    1) Does RR support this sensor? I assumed that this would just show up as the first sensor of the 8 that RR supports.
    2) Do I need to have the PH driver (phidget21) running for RR to read from the sensor? I assume yes but I don't see any post/documentation to that effect.
    3) How do I get the sensor value in RR? I *think* I put "PHID01" on a label but that isn't working for me. Should it be perhaps "PHID00"? I am always getting back a reading of zero.
    4) Do I need to put anything into the RR setup for phidget offsets? Not even sure what those are for; I see no offset values in the driver that I might need to put in there.
    5) IF I can get the reading working, how would I convert that number to Fahrenheit?

    I do know for a fact that there is at lease one person that is using it. As I have started a PI from way back that was to pull the phig suff from RR's core to be made into a PI, with far more features then the current implementation stands at. Another PI project I have to eventually get to finishing..

    The PI did have the ability to do logging, and was able to work with many more phig items then whats incorp in RR.

    Debug shows.
    3/12/2011 8:42:39 AM: Phidgets interface installed. Sensors=0, Inputs=0, Outputs=0
    I assume sensor=0 means it did not find my sensor so I guess I am going the custom plugin route.

    C'mon now... I have put too much time/effort into the one that I started. Though, now a small bit out of current PI stds... I even have a testing skin that I created as I was working thur it, not pretty, but at that stage not important.
