Pleased that you found a good solution. I had not thought of using a transverter setting as a half-way house.
Look forward to seeing you on the net next week. Sorry I had to dash off.
Thanks to John G4BAO for spotting the bug.
The picture provides some my configuration.In addition must be upgraded to the DVB firmware?I try to use DVB portsdown upgrade firmware options, there seems to be no success
Or have I lost the plot here and its only applicable to RPI4's?
I could of course cough up for a Lime mini and a new Pi4, but as I'm not in a hurry to get on Q100 its not THAT urgent....as I have a pair of Plutos that run the DATV code quite happily....
Reference the LimeSDR USB. Stick with Stretch on the RPi 3B+ at the moment. I have just been lent a LimeSDR USB to test with, so hope to make it work with Buster in the next few days, and then issue any updates required. After that, Buster on a RPi 3B+ should be the way to go.
Portsdown does not yet work on an RPi 4, and won't work on one for some time!
Have you loaded the the Lime DVB FW on your LimeSDR Mini? Using the button "Update to DVB FW".
I have just reproduced your problem. It happens when you try to use Lime DVB mode without loading the DVB firmware on the LimeSDR Mini.
Quick fix: Select Lime Mini as the Output Device.
Slightly longer fix: leave Lime DVB selected, and reprogram the LimeSDR Mini with the LimeDVB Firmware.
Please let me know how you get on.
I always doubt is one of China's network build errors.(though I've used when constructing portsdown proxy service)
It does not require an internet connection for the firmware upgrade. Check that the file
Code: Select all
Code: Select all
ls -a /home/pi/.local/share/LimeSuite/images/v0.3/
As another test, reload the Firmware 1.30, and then select Lime Mini as the output device. Does that work?
