Brightness settings for Nextion Screen

Post by PD0DIB »

[Tech Tip] Do you know ...
You can set the Idle Brightness and Brightness of your Nextion screen:
For Pi-Star users: go to the Expert page, MMDVMHost editor and go down to the Nextion part (for other MMDVMHost compilations: go to the .ini file, same procedure).
Set IdleBrightness & Brightness to the value that suite you the best and Apply Changes.

Playing around with all types of hotspots (simplex & duplex) for DMR, YSF/C4FM and D-Star.
Most of them has a Nextion screen ...

Thank you for this tip, Rob! That's really good to know as I'm sure it will help preserve the battery of a mobile hotspot using a Nextion screen.
