Potsdown 4 Problem After Installing Langstone V2

Post by G8KOE » Tue Jun 21, 2022 8:04 am

Hi,
Just installed Langstone V2 all worked OK.
Switch back to Portsdown 4 with BATC MiniTioue V2 connected.
I can receive sound and on screen displays station details correct but get no picture.
If I select RX with OMX Player sometimes get a picture but always sound.
The RX on my Portsdown 4 was working before installing Lanstone V2.
Is there a setting I need to change?

I have just done a "Restore Factory"
also "Force Update" still no RX stations displayed.
Will keep looking.

If I now try to look at a stream VLC doesn't work OMX does.
VLC seems to have stopped working.

Hi Martin

The problem is nothing to do with Langstone. As part of the Langstone update, the Portsdown updates all the system software. VLC has been updated in the past few days and their update has broken the Portsdown receiver. Outside of my control.

Nothing that you can do at the moment. I'm looking into it.
