Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

Has anyone given this thought? I have a tablet I would like to connect to the MMDVM board in this manner, but as I pointed out in the original post it does not always work. I am not sure why.

Folks, I have a MMDVM board with Pi-Star running my repeater. I have an old tablet that I have mounted to the repeater to check the dashboard when working with the machine. Several times I have noticed that the tablet has obtained and IP address via the USB port rather than using the Wifi from the R...

Re: V4.0.0RC3

I just installed RC3. Looks good, I did have to go in and change the password as it reverted to raspberry. I am also still having an issue with the ipv4.fw file not being read. Had the same issue back on the image for the 3B+. My work around is to add it to the iptables.rules. Of course every time t...

Re: pistar-findmodem

I have a modem which returns the same one as Andy shows. The Nextion screen is attached to the modem and as I understand it should be addressed as "modem" on the pi-star configuration screen. Indeed here is the reply I get from the interrogation: [email protected](rw):~$ sudo pistar-findmodem Detec...

Re: Cannot Get Nextion to work under Pi-Star

I found out how to do the roll back, did it but no joy. I still have a nice blank screen, any other ideas out there?

ipv4.fw not being read?

I am running my system on the 3B+, so I am using the code for that machine. It appears that the ipv4.fw file is not being read, I have a rule I added so I can get to gkrellmd, but it does not appear to pick it up. On my 3B board it works just fine. Has anyone noticed this? In order to get it to work...

Re: Nextion not reading card?

For some reason it would not take a card unless I had formatted it using Win10. I was doing the format using Linux and formatting to Fat32 using Gparted. but that would not work, so re-looked at the docs it said to format with Windows... OK, I will do so. Formatted the card, then I moved it over to ...

Re: Cannot Get Nextion to work under Pi-Star

I am having the same issue. I have checked all of the wiring TX>RX RX>TX, I just see the MMDVM logo on the screen but get no data on there. I see the comment about rolling back the MMDVM software to the previous rev level, have not done that, what is the trick? I see and have used the command to upd...
