Is the Portsdown 4, like Portsdown 2020 still controllable with Putty via the console interface?
When I enter the command /home/pi/rpidatv/scripts/menu.sh menu via putty, I get 'Portsdown DATV TX Version 202102250 By F5OEO and the BATC Team'.
I can apparently configure anything through the console.
I have tried with FW1.30 (MiniLime Selected) but also DVB FW (LimeDVB Selected) but I can only get it to produce a carrier at the set frequency ?
The basic functions are still controllable from PuTTY, but only the older features. I am no longer updating the console menu in Portsdown 4, as it is designed as a unit to be operated from the 7 inch screen.
Once the Lime has the correct firmware (1.30) is should work in that mode. Not sure about the DVB firmware.
thanks for the quick reply.
I know the intention is to use it with a 7 inch screen but I still wanted to try it via the putty console.
I have found out that it has something to do with the Source selection.
I have now quickly selected CARD16MPEG-2, CARDHDMPEG-2 and IPTSIN via the Putty console and the Portsdown 4 seems to be broadcasting with both FW1.30 and DVBFW. When I select CARDH264, it does not broadcast.
