Re: [Solved] Changing date format from GB to US but keep 24hr time

You are looking at it backwards, don't look at %R and which locale it is used in, look at how the time is being formatted using "date". man date %r locale's 12-hour clock time (e.g., 11:11:04 PM) %R 24-hour hour and minute; same as %H:%M %T time; same as %H:%M:%S where %H hour (00..23) %M minute (0...

Re: CHanging date format from GB to US but keep 24hr time

Got it to work now.

However %R is listed under SENEGAL (SN) (ff_SN) and it will only displaying 23:59 (missing sec).

So I forced the t_fmt to %T UNITED KINGDOM (GB) (en_GB) to displays 23:59:59

Regardless, thank you very much for paving the way for me.

Thanks, W3KIT

Re: CHanging date format from GB to US but keep 24hr time

If there is a difference, its more than likely you are comparing two different major releases of pi-star. The old 3.4.17 runs on a much older raspbian. 4.0 uses a different one , and 4.1 uses an even newer one. I figured out how to do what you wanted now, I don't know why it wasn't cooperating for ...

Re: CHanging date format from GB to US but keep 24hr time

I'd have to say, no. I could explain how to modify the en_US locale to get the RPI to display the format you want but for some unknown reason MMDVMHost uses some other way than the locale to define the format for the time. I'm not sure where its getting it from either. Ummm, that is probably why I ...

[Solved] Changing date format from GB to US but keep 24hr time

Is there a way to change the date to US format but keep the 24 hr clock?

I would like the Nextion screen to displays:

10/25/2019 16:59:59 rather than 10/25/2019 04:59:59 PM

Thanks, W3KIT

Re: DVMEGA Hat and RSSI

I guess I have the answer :evil: Got the email from DVMEGA (Dooren Electronic Solutions). ----- RSSI is not implemented because of the short distance reach of a hotspot. For repeater i can understand the need of RSSI. ----- I guess no fancy S-meter on my Nextion screen then. Oh well.... Thanks, W3KIT

Re: 2.4 Nextion on DVMEGA in C4 labs case

I have TTL converter on the way as an option. It would be ashamed if the kit (case and screen) does not work as advertised without a hack job. I see electronic component, wiring, engineering hack at 10 - 12 hours a day. When I get home I don't work on anything for the next 10 hours or so haha. Just ...

Re: 2.4 Nextion on DVMEGA in C4 labs case

On another note. I went with DVMEGA UHF/VHF is because where I am going in few months UHF is actually illegal to transmit. I have Zumspot already but it is a UHF only, I could modify it to work on VHF but I chose to go DVMEGA route. I would be too bad if C4Labs instruction is misleading and turn out...

Re: 2.4 Nextion on DVMEGA in C4 labs case

Oops, my bad. I meant pin 2. Just a shot in the dark, I sent email to C4 Labs asking about the instruction about the case and the wiring. They replied with the this info. So, I am not sure, just have to wait until I jump into it and see. Although, I am not sure if it would work with the Pi 3B or not...
