Hi Dave,

When in Ryde mode on the Portsdown 4 qo-100 quick tune works no problem, I can adjust the Volume with Toms android phone app Ryde Remote and other functions, but is there going to be an ir remote control option, or can the touchscreen be used to adjust volume etc.

Hi Brian

If you connect the IR sensor as if it was a Ryde (and identify the correct remote in config.yaml), IR control should work.

No touchscreen control.

It is not easily possible to load previous Portsdown versions. Even if you did do it (from the command line) you would not be able to roll back the system software package updates - and it is these that seem to cause most of the issues.

The last changes I made to anything affecting the receiver were on 25 March in update 202403250, so I'm really not sure what the issue is.

Have you tried a new build?

I do not have a PicoTuner to hand at the moment (I have loaned it out for a public DATV demonstration), but will recheck when I get it back.

Dave
