I try to get data from a Oregon LW301 weather station. This station (see attached) can get sensor information with a RF 433MHz receiver, connected with USB to a little box that translate and send to an oregon server this data using TCP/HTTP protocol (ethernet link). The product is good and works well as designed by Oregon. But it will be great to improve the system using a RPI to get data and share to other weather services, blogs, etc.. And for a domotiga system too.
I tried to plug the 433MHz receiver to RPI without succes. I thought it was a "not enough power" problem, but I had the same problem using a AC powered hub or a Y usb cable with red USB plug in a power plug. So, I cannot how to resolve this problem. The problem is detailed here :

Another option could be to plug the ethernet port to RPI and read ethernet data. It will be more complex (using routing tables and dedicated apache server) but it is possible.
Another option would be to get a 433MHz receiver and try to decode data directly from sensors. But I don't want to buy something 3 times the price of the RPI !
Any idea how to connect this Oregon weather station to raspberry ?
Have a nice and shiny day
