    Neither does ours....Perhaps it might be a firmware thing?

    How are people finding the Roast Time software? I'm obviously missing a dependancy because whenever I try and run it the app crashes.
    Does anyone know what software I'm supposed to have installed. I've found finding information on the support software kinda hard to come across? (I hope I'm in the right place to post this)
    Apart from that I've been loving this roaster, but I'd love to be having the profiles and how it roasts recorded.

    Hi Peter,

    Software is fiddly to install and you do need to follow the manual to the letter.

    Best place for your questions might be the Facebook users group.

    Cheers

    Chris

    My Roast time software works just fine. Installation was straight forward on my Windows 7 and also Windows 10 PC.

    I just followed the instructions as mentioned earlier by Talk Coffee. The only problem I have is when I resize the window and receive a nasty looking error message to which I click continue and it carries on ok.

    PM me if you want any details of the FB group if you can't find it.

    I've worked it out. Yay! Got a whole two minutes of roast profile
    I've updated the manual with the solution (though not with screenshots alas)
    The problem was the driver was installing on both interfaces (Followed the manual to the letter) So the solution was to disable "interface 0" which is the interface the you're not suppose to install the driver to. I'm guessing the correct software fix is to have code that checks for multiple interfaces and to choose the correct version and prompt if it can't see the correct version. I'd also wager that this is one of the causes for the Roaster not to be seen. Hopefully the next release will package it all up into one nice install that does all the setup for you.

    Hopefully this helps someone!

    Interesting I looked for the update but it didn't say that there was one. I'm running 1.0.0.33 (And firmware build 366). Maybe it auto updated?

    There is some kind of an auto update, it works like. If you open up Roast Time, and there is an update. The next time you open the software, it will auto install the new update. I'll always open ups the program two times. To make sure I have the latest.

    There are no auto update for the firmware.

    How are people going with these roasters? Latest emails from Aillio said the Bullet will now come standard with a tryer and they are working on issues with the bean temp probe giving variable results. Any firsthand experiences Snobs could share?

    Loving the roaster, software is still giving me a few issues but that will improve over time. Really enjoying the roasts.

    Tried to order the Tryer, Australia isn't listed in countries for shipping. Is this just me? Has anyone else noticed that Australia isn't listed.

    I suspect you'll have to buy it from the Australian importer - ECA

    No its not just you Australia's not listed. I've contacted Aillio so let's just wait and see what they say.

    Me too. Hopefully when cleared ECA can distribute them with the tryers installed.

    From what I've read, anything coming out of the factory from now on* will have the trier plate preinstalled.

    They've added Australia to the list of countries for shipping the tryers. It's approx $90. Order placed :-)

    I've see on a couple of videos where the chaff falls out into the bean cooler, does this happen with your one or was it a early model and has been rectified.

    Yes it does happen to mine and I believe it's part of the design as there is a dedicated gap.

    As far as I know no machines imported via ECA are in the country yet, so no preorders via sponsors have been fulfilled. I contacted ECA the other day to enquire when things would hit the ground but they (understandably) didn't disclose. But trying to read between the lines it appears their feedback has made its way to the factory. Aillio have begun a second run of machines for delivery in December, but these may not be the machines that meet Aus spec, so might be the following manufacturing run. Bit of a ways to go yet, but the wait means more reliable product in this instance as there seems to have been a lot of good feedback from the early adopters.

    But people in Aus do own them. You can read their comments around here and elsewhere (Facebook group, Aillio A1 unofficial forum etc.)

    Keep in mind that's conjecture, not official info from ECA or Aillio. Aillio did say in their latest newsletter that there had been a delay on the second round of manufacturing "to make some improvements for everybody" but I'd be surprised if that wasn't just some tweaks based on the feedback from early adopters and the building in of the tryer plate more than anything.

    I can't wait either. Not that I can fully afford one, but I'll be able to make it far more likely when they're on a shelf somewhere ;-)

    "The word" is that the Aussie run will be the first of 2017 production...

    We shall see...

    Classic. We'll see indeed So unless they're in the middle of that 2017 run - factoring in Chinese New Year, production starts up again on 5th Feb, assume 3-4 weeks for production run and testing, and 3 weeks shipping out of Taiwan to Sydney.. then ECA bench testing for a week or two.. mid April is my guess!

    However their website does say 6 weeks lead time, in which case we might all be pleasantly surprised with a first of autumn arrival. Not holding my breath.

    Confirmed via FB message with Aillio that "We are in production mode right now and it will continue through CNY and beyond". But that's all I could get, went silent after that (Understandably)

    Oh, and they also said it's a good time to order as "it's likely we should have some stock left after CNY" - which means that they're possibly expecting to deplete stock before CNY...
