Fix for Portsdown Stretch Streamer

Post by G8GKQ » Fri Nov 23, 2018 2:19 pm

I have just found a bug that affects the Portsdown Stretch Repeater Streamer. It does NOT affect the Portsdown Jessie Repeater Streamer.

To properly enable the Watchdog that restarts the RPi if the streamer stops, please log-on to the Portsdown and enter the following line:

Code: Select all

chmod +x /home/pi/rpidatv/scripts/streamer_process_watchdog.sh
You can then start the watchdog by entering the line

Code: Select all

(/home/pi/rpidatv/scripts/streamer_process_watchdog.sh >/dev/null 2>/dev/null) &
Apologies - this will be fixed in the next Portsdown Stretch release.

Dave, G8GKQ
