Re: Pi Zero W Rev 1.1 transmit and Password

Hi Tony, Whether or not you can use the duplex mode depends on the radio/modem board you are using. If it has one antenna, it's a simple board; if it has two, it's a duplex board. It might be easiest at this point to burn a new Pi-Star image to your microSD card and start fresh. Not knowing where yo...

Try 3101. It's a lot closer to you.

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

Well, this is still an issue. My personal troubleshooting procedure for this issue has been to always update manually via SSH so that I get any Raspbian OS updates along with the Pi-Star dashboard updates. My process is to log into Pi-Star via SSH, run sudo pistar-update, then reboot the hotspot, t...

Re: ZUMspot - Duplex Raspberry Pi Hat (GPIO)

[Okay, completely editing this post, because my original version was incorrect. Apologies for that, but this really confused me.] There are two boards listed on HRO, a Dual Band board and a Duplex board. Unfortunately, in the description for both of them, it says: "If you would like the Original Pre...

Re: ZUMspot - Duplex Raspberry Pi Hat (GPIO)

Well, this is a bit awkward. Support for that option has been added to the latest version of the MMDVM_HS firmware, v1.5b, though as the "b" suggests, that version is still a pre-release beta. You can find it here: https://github.com/juribeparada/MMDVM_HS/releases The problem is, there isn't yet a s...

Re: RPi 3 A+ running V4.1.0 RC7

For comparison, I just ran sudo vcgencmd get_throttled on my 3A+ hotspot and got: 0x0
using a CanaKit USB-C 5.1V 3.5A power supply.

Re: essid

I can't offer direct help, but can share one thing that might be a factor: if you make a change in the Expert Editor, and then subsequently make any change on the regular Configuration page, the changes you made in the Expert Editor will be reset (I'm not sure this applies to all changes made in the...

Re: RPi 3 A+ running V4.1.0 RC7

Max operating temp for an RPi is 85 C. While 50 C is warm, it shouldn't be anywhere near the point where the temp causes throttling (that should occur around 80 C). My 3B+ hotspots regularly operate as high as 60 C, with no issues. One reason I like the 3A+ hotspots is that they operate cooler than ...

Re: Powering my Nextion 3.5 scrren

There are two ways I know of to connect a Nextion display: Via a USB to TTL UART CH340G Serial Converter, plugged into the RPI's USB. By connecting to the Serial through-holes on the radio/modem board. In both cases, the connection should provide the power you need, with the exception that some peop...
