Lime mini/DATV-Epress

Post by G8KUZ » Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:17 pm

My Lime mini works okay with DATV-Express when I first put it into tx mode. When I drop carrier to go into rx mode and then go back into tx mode it only transmits a carrier with no video content. If I restart DATV-Epress then it works fine again. I have to restart the program each time I do this.
Is this a bug in the current software (version 12) or am I missing something.
Current setup laptop i5 with Windows 10 running DATV-Express 25/12. C920 webcam 8 Mbyts ram.

Thanks in advance for any/all replies

John,
I've only used my Lime SDR Mini and DATV Express using Vmix as the video source, and it definitely doesn't do what you report then. I will try it with my c920 direct, but you might see if Vmix works with your set up. I'm using Express v1.25LP12. Have you upgraded the Lime firmware? You need to do this and it can be done using the Portsdown software.
73 Shaun.
