After reboot, now "Current Software Version" changes each time : M3 / M3 band / 10 / ....
For your info : To build Portsdown I have dowloaded the soft via your repo (-d option)
If this can help

Hi Christian

Now corrected. My apologies - I still need to set up a separate system for testing, so I had cut some corners and missed some errors. You will need to run the script as before:

Code: Select all

cd /home/pi
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/BritishAmateurTelevisionClub/portsdown4/master/update.sh  -O /home/pi/update.sh
chmod +x /home/pi/update.sh
./update.sh
Please use the main BATC build, as the dev build (davecrump) is often untested with errors.

Dave

Hi Dave and all
I am using the 202008013. Good job !
The screen is upside down, except the video on the screen when I use the picam for transmitting
The reboot does not work (black screen). It works when I disconnect and reconnect the power supply.

You can invert the screen from: Menu 3, System Setup, Invert 7 inch and then reboot.

Reboot sometimes takes 90 seconds - please could you wait that long and tell me if it does eventually?

Thanks

Dave

Pleased that the screen reversal was OK.

What other things do you have connected to your Raspberry Pi?

7 inch screen, Pi camera and .......
