Just before leaving the shack got a bright idea...

Freqency and cpu hack was never done...

And presto...

Stable power and a working set...

Tomorrow is a test day....

First test seems promising.
No need to change jumper settings inside and not yet tested the PTT out.

Found a simple bug where the power slider is not working at all..
Power is fixed in datv mode at approx -15db.
In DATV mode all the normal settings can be done, no time for all settings tested yet.

As its a Persevere copy, you need some settings when trying the several modes...

In the pass thru mode sdr console works including the power setting.
In this mode also the datv-easy is working, including the power slider.
Remember to reboot the pluto when changing from 1 mode to the other..

So all in all, besides the power slider setting in datv mode, it looks like Phill did us a great favor compiling a pluto+ instance..

But than again with the original pluto+ firmware sdr-console and datv-easy where also working and i did not needed dvb anymore..

Happy to test the firmware
