See my announcement here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1248

Please use this thread for discussing your success/failure to find your screens using this tool.
It will *NOT* be able to find the screen if it's connected the other side of your MMDVM board, it will find them on the GPIO pins or on USB<->UART adapters.

It found my Nextion 3.5” enhanced screen correctly, but that was all....did not list my modem or other info. Since it’s not a board from Florian, et. al., I assume that’s why.
My specs, if needed: Jumbospot, early 2017 version, 14.7465 MHz, on Pi Zero W. FW HS_Hat V.1.4.14. — Pi-Star 3.4.16. — Dashboard 20190104.
As always, still tickled pink with Pi-Star and where you’re going with it.

Very interesting, thanks for the feedback;

Code: Select all

[email protected](ro):~# pistar-findmodem 
Detected MMDVM_HS (GPIO): /dev/ttyAMA0 (MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat-v1.4.14 20181209 14.7456MHz dual ADF7021 FW by CA6JAU GitID #8d77ff3)
[email protected](ro):~# exit
logout
[email protected](ro):~$ pistar-findmodem 
[email protected](ro):~$ 
So as you can see, not running the tool as root - does change things - I'll go modify the tool to require root privs.

You need to be root to run this command...

[email protected](ro):~$ sudo pistar-findmodem
Detected MMDVM_HS (GPIO): /dev/ttyAMA0 (MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat-v1.4.14 20181209 14.7456MHz dual ADF7021 FW by CA6JAU GitID #8d77ff3)
OK I can live with that :)

Just tried this on my Zumspot. Got no response. My duplex returns all the modem info.

Oops. Why did I think not running as root would work when the other pistar-scripts need to? Hardening of the aptitudes, I guess. Running under sudo detects all. Thanks!
