If i try to access the webpage while a scheduled program is running, the sprinklers shutoff, the web page timesout and freezes up. A few mins later, the sprinklers will turn back on, but with a reset amount of time, and outside the scheduled time as well.
My quick thought is the power supply, not that I yet have a lot of experience with this thing myself but… Given that the valve is on and using power it will be reduced when trying to activate things on the board/processor too. My P/S is 750mA and seems to be quite ok with one valve on at the moment and using the Pi (on my Pi I run Sprinklers-Pi and XBMC as a media centre) 😉 Still testing all that so far.
