Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

Thanks. I will wait for the code to be updated. Glad you figured it out. I did finally find the Pi 3 I thought I owned so I will get it set up with that but at least now I know how to use the Zumspot modem pins and NextionDriver saving me having the usb/ttl adapter hanging off the pi.

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

Thanks for all your effort on this. I learned a lot doing the tests and I am happy I was not messing something up that neither of us realized. At least I am not imaging the problem. :)

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

Neither change had any impact on the performance. The results are still stalling at NextionDriver until 'Apply Changes' is used on the config page. What continues to be noticeable is the very slow response of the Pi Zero under V4.1.0 RC2. The web interface often times out waiting for reboots or appl...

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

I hope someone can confirm or deny operation like this on another Pi 0. If not the next time I need something from Adafruit I will throw in the $10 for a new zero. Regardless, thanks for all your help. I learned a lot working through this and that is hard for a 73 year old accountant type.

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

I am sure I followed all steps exactly to get hooked up to the modem pins on the Zumspot. However, results were the same The Nextion starts on the MMDVM screen during initialization and connection and then goes to a NextionDriver starting screen where it waits until I apply changes on the MMDVMHost ...

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

I did not have any success here. Probably I do not understand the setup and what I should be looking for. I have the changes made to Transparent Data. I did have to add SendFrameType=1 in the mmdvmhost file. I changed the port on Nextion to modem. This left NextionDriver as dev/ttyUSB0 which did not...

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

Update at this point. Removing the blue wire did not impact the action with the Pi Zero. I still had to apply changes. However, the buttons for reboot and shutdown were no longer active. Moving to V4.1.0 RC2 on the Pi Zero also did not change the action and I still had to apply changes to obtain fun...

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

I will certainly give each idea a try. I would like to figure out what is happening with the Pi Zero as I certainly do not want to tie up the new 4B for a hotspot. I like to experiment so hopefully tomorrow I can make the changes. I have avoided using the modem pins on the Pi Zero because on my olde...

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

Well I downloaded the new Pi-Star V4.1.0 RC2 and installed it on a brand new out of the box RPi 4B. It all seems to be working fine with no human intervention at the NextionDriver starting screen. So obviously my problem is with the Pi Zero or possibly the adapter connecting the Pi Zero USB port to ...

Re: NextionDriver requires configuration apply changes after every shutdown or reboot

Oops I forgot the 2 B does not have onboard wifi. More looking to see if I have a later RPi. Or if I can use a dongle and pi-star. Anyway learning opportunities for a true OM.
