I could not use the hot fix as I had issues writing to my SD card and adding the ORxPi file from the hotfix archive. My issue with creating and modifying the SD card on the MAC.
No matter - I created a new ORxPi v0.2.8 SD card and fired it up and it worked great. Got the satellite pointed and started downloading files.
After about 1 GB of library size, the system was performing better than before, but I wanted to get the library up to 3G size to see if some of the speed of navigating between screens had been sorted out.
In the middle of all this, the satellite strength and file download progress screen has frozen. I had a wind storm and in the middle of downloading files, the antenna moved. It seems like the screen holds the last signal strength and quality data (in my case, signal=61, Quality = .24). The issue is that screen is now frozen and I cannot use it to re-point the antenna. No matter where the antenna is pointed (or even if I have the cable connect to the HDStar), the Signal remains at 61, Quality at .24.
I presume the process that reads the signal data from the HDStar has stopped, and needs to be restarted. I rebooted the Pi a couple of times (hopeing that this process would recover) and pulled the plug on the HDStar as well, but no luck.
Is there any troubleshooting you would like me to do, or any files you need to see to track this down.
I believe that this occurred under 0.2.7 as well, and I ignored the issue as 0.2.8 was just around the corner.
Just to re-cap, it looks like the Tuner Settings screen freezes after the antenna is off satellite for a bit, while downloads are in progress. (I had 4 files showing in various states of downloads.)
I will leave the system in the state in case you need me to collect some info.
