Open Tuner 0.9

Post by zr6tg » Sun Feb 11, 2024 10:26 am

Hi All,

Open Tuner 0.9 has now been released. You can find it in the usual place: https://www.zr6tg.co.za/open-tuner/

- The annoying VLC window bug should be fixed (feedback welcome)
- Ive also integrated MPV so you now have the option to select VLC/FFMPEG or MPV as video player. This binaries for MPV also includes VCC support.
- Misc other stability fixes

And then also this version contains experimental support for Colin (G4EML) PicoTuner Support. Use a Raspberry Pico to replace the FTDI Module, also includes support for dual TS (and only 1 usb cable ;)). Thanks to Colin for all the great work. More details here: https://www.zr6tg.co.za/2024/02/11/pico ... ternative/

Hi Tom,

0.9 working well on my system.
No problems will keep testing.
The addition of MPV makes 266 user friendly.
I had forgotten how good the Chat window is.
Thanks for all you do!

Thanks Tom en Colin.

Adaptor PCBs should be available soon.
These will allow a Pico to be fitted to a V2 Minitiouner.

I am using the Open Tuner Ver. 0.9 All working OK and the screens are now stable. One small point when I close the program using the X in the corner the program does not always close but freezes and I have to go into TASK MANAGER to close the program. Not really a big problem Hi. THANK YOU very much for the wonderful software. 73 de OE8PCK Paul

I find I can get it to close reliably if I click the X on the debug window.
