Skylark 5.2 for Dreamcatcher 3


#41

no. nothing. i am still unable to replicate the problem at my end. I am going to try changing the unblanking method - just for the sake of it. lets see.


#42

Would it. Be possible to also add a temp readout of the CPU some where so we can start to watch out for overheating in the warm weather?


#43

Can you describe the menu items –

Reset Configuration (reboot)
Factory reset (reboot)


#44

clear all configuration - removes any password changes, AP password change, beam selections - everything. basically wipes the config partition. keeps downloads though.

wipes both the config and the storage partition. all the old downloads get wiped.

About every three hours I am seeing a kernel message on spi32764, don’t know if that is video memory transfer?

My tft does go to sleep per normal, it always comes back at a touch.


#46

no, thats the radio. SPI communications with the chip periodically error out.


#47

Sorry, I missed this thread earlier. I am experiencing the same, and have to re-boot in order for the screen to come back on. I tried to revive it and waited 30 seconds and one minute, but did not get a response from the screen. This is my 3.02Q unit with 5.2, it has been up for five days since last reboot.

I would check your power supply. I had a very odd thing happen to me yesterday when I was reaming my dish. The LCD was on but anytime I touched the LCD it would shut off. On a whim, I swapped my power supply to a 12v emergency power box that I had built and the DC worked fine.

My DC is working fine, the display is locked off and does not want to restart on touch or swipe with finger. Power is sufficient. If I were to change power, it would reboot and would work fine for the first hour or so, but not come back next time I need to use the screen…


#50

Could a menu item be added to rotate / flip the display orientation. I have been building my case using the

The current display orientation puts the reset switch, power cable, usb along the bottom / front edge. I would rather have all the cables/stuff out the “top/back” of the case.

Edit: maybe it’s better to use a gpio extension cable plus a double male header?

What did I miss?

some very nice party tracks :wink:


#53

Might want to try listening to the audio output on DC3.02/DC3.03 sometime today :slight_smile:


#54

I just noticed that in the tuner it was switching between file and audio.


#55

I had to restart it to get the audio to come over. This is AWESOME!!! Talking about radar. WOOT WOOT!


#56

My SNR is 1.5 - 2 and it is coming in kind of choppy, started out very good though. it is repeating itself every so often.


#58

We have a thread discussing the new audio service over here.

Well, there is only one post. But you know what I mean.


#59

At the bottom of the Tuner status, info regarding audio frames has been added.

Updates via downloads ? Is it possible to include the Skylark software (approx 315 mb image) in the downloads. Particularly for future updates. Then I wouldn’t have to go out on the internet to get the latest image.

I guess simple instructions would be needed on how to use this image to burn the OS. But with two sd card slots maybe some automated method could update the rxos.

I also noticed that the display has a sd slot (I found it while hooking up a 40 pin gpio extension cable). Maybe it could be used?

Actually, I implemented a pretty neat auto-OTA system in Skylark last year. I even ran a test, though it did not go well - partly due to a bug, and partly due to a freak failure of the transmit backend right in the middle of the OTA broadcast.

I should probably give it another go. Its designed for very low bandwidth (for example the update from 5.1 to 5.2 would have been about 300KB over-the-air). And its fully automatic - no user intervention required. At the end of the update, the device simply reboots into the new version.
