Increase display hang time?

Post by W4AEQ » Tue Jun 26, 2018 1:14 am

I just installed the OLED on my HS_HAT v1.3.7 and it works as advertised.
Is there a setting to increase the time before the screen defaults to the "scrolling MMDVM" display? Sometimes, by the time I get over to the unit to look at the data, it's already gone.

Thanks!

The RF and NET mode timers on the configuration page control how long a mode remains locked on after the mode activity ends. This also affects the OLED display time.

That's what I was thinking as well.

But does anyone now how to rotate the display 180 degrees? I run a Pi0WH with the chinese board where the OLED is soldered to the radio board only, It works fine - Love it. BUT

The power is on a side that makes standing upright impossible -- placing the case so the display reads upside down make the power USB on top -- it would be nice to rotate the display so it reads right side up and the flat long ege makes it stale on a desk or display table at demonstrations.

A Nextion Display would be a nicety but I don't have one, and I CAN use my tablet with IP/mobile (My android tablet wont take the http://jumbospot/mobiloe so I use http://ip.ad.dr.es/mobile/ and it will show nicely in landscape mode but that is another piece to carry and power. rotating 180 degrees would be SO much easier.
