I’m playing about with my ORx and, as I expected, having no luck getting it to receive data. This is most likely because I can’t point the satellite dish successfully.
However, It occurs to me that there is no obvious way that I can see to determine if the Raspberry Pi with the ORx image is actually successfully connected to the DVB-S/S2 receiver.
The receiver I have was purchased from the Outernet store.
Is there any way beyond “the USB port is plugged in and I’m feeling lucky” to confirm that my raspberry Pi is connected and communicating with the receiver?
I’m not presently concerned about actually receiving a signal, I just want to make sure that the receiver as a collective system is functioning as it should.
