BER and RSSI readings reversed on Nextion with JumboSpot in DStar mode

Post by K2RHK » Sun May 13, 2018 10:55 pm

Here’s a quirk! Thanks to help on this forum my Nextion screen on a Pi2/Jumbospot in DMR mode now displays RSSI readings as well as BER correctly. However, in DStar mode the readings are reversed. On the Dashboard they’re OK but on the Nextion the RSSI box will display, say, 0.00% while the BER box will display -47dBm. I’ve tried this on two separate screens with the same results. Can anyone figure this out?

I had this issue on my 2.8 with the TS and TG lines. Just swapped values (X. Y. W. H) from one to the other and everything lined up.

Thanks, I found that it was an error in the two screens by the same designer. I tried the American flag screen and the readings are correct there.

Glad ya got it fixed. The American flag screen was the one that had TG and TS reversed for me..

IN the Model 5 screens (PD0DIB) I've swapped BER and RSSI :) Corrected in the latest versions and posted in the files section at the Nextion FB Group.
