Yeah, most of what was released has been in the beta for quite a while, and there hasn't really been any major modifications.

Hello All,

I Have a Duplex MMDVM board that is running HS_Hat:v1.4.16. If runs excellently.

I recently bought 4 more MMDVM Duplex boards to build for fellow hams they are running HS_Hat:v1.4.7 and they run poorly.

Can I upgrade these to the latest firmware and get better results? How do I know which Board will run which Firmware? These are not Zumspots.

Where is the list of firmware updates and can I select a particular update version?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, and you should, there have been many bug fixes and additions since that firmware version was released.

Since you have duplex boards, you need the firmware with duplex enabled in the configuration. You can run simplex firmware on a duplex board. You just can't run duplex firmware on a simplex board because it is missing the 2nd ADF7021.

Zumspots use the same source code, just with a different configuration, so it really doesn't matter.

The original creator of the board in question usually has a webpage where it lists the exact configuration settings needed for the firmware. Search the web for whatever name is silkscreened on the PCB.

You can, but you would need to manually download, extract, compile and flash which ever version you want to install and it just isn't worth the time to mess around with old versions. The Pi-star scripts will automatically download the most up to date pre-compiled firmware and flash it. Just use it and be done with it.

Code: Select all

sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatflash
and read the instructions printed.

Yeah, its because the lines extend past the width of my terminal screen. Its really not that big of a deal to fix it on the forum, its a pain to go in one by one to try to get it to line up.

The point was really that the command is correct, so instead of cutting and pasting he could try manually typing it instead.
