Re: 4.1.0 RC6 20191105 dashboard now displaying M1ABC

I do that and my DMR id (for the hotspot) shows the 7 digit form on the admin dashboard. OK, but then, for each of my hotspots, how do I know which 9-digit id it's operating under by just glancing at the dashboards? Do I need to drill down to the configs each time to verify the extended id's haven't...

Re: 4.1.0 RC6 20191105 dashboard now displaying M1ABC

That fixed it! And, yes, I had been running an update or two the last couple of days (via the dashboard update selection). But this exposes another problem: my 9-digit DMR id (7+2 postfix) has reverted back to its 7 digit form (again). It appears the 9-digit form can not be set via the regular confi...

Timezone also reverted back to GMT (UK) time. All this in spite of config settings.

4.1.0 RC6 20191105 dashboard now displaying M1ABC

As of the 20191105 dashboard for 4.1.0 RC6, the browser tab and dashboard banner are now displaying M1ABC rather than the callsign from the configuration as it previously did.

Re: Its time to update the Nextion Driver to 1.17

Don't know why it didn't (re)create the NextionDriverInstaller directory the first (second?) time, but I ran the install (yet) again and everything is back in sync among my HS's.

Thanks

Re: Its time to update the Nextion Driver to 1.17

Of the two hotspots I have with Nextion screens, the above installation/update script does not work on one of them, primarily because the NextionDriverInstaller directory is missing. (FWIW: The HS with the missing directory was built about two years ago - using perhaps a different install script? - ...

Re: Unable to Switch Back to 'rpi-ro'

Great! Should be fairly soon, if my experience is any indication: Booted all five of my hotspots together 28 hours ago. Two of them are already in permanent RW mode, apparently just in the last 8-9 hours (since I last checked). Just a thought: could the Watchdog be set to monitor the RO/RW status an...

Re: Unable to Switch Back to 'rpi-ro'

Great! As Jeff suggests, more feedback is needed, more observations to see if one can narrow down the contributing factors to the issue - a "survey" of some sort perhaps: 1) How often does the issue arise (how prevalent is the issue)? 2) How long does the configuration run before the issue becomes a...

Re: safe way to turn off hot spot

You can also issue shutdown/reboot commands via RF for select modes.
See <https://amateurradionotes.com/pi-star-n ... #watchdogs>
Very quick and handy for Pi-zero's where dashboard access is problematic!
