Re: PIDV AMBEserver installation nightmare

Apparently it does not need the wiringPI, am I right?
Correct me if I'm mistaken.
Does it work with the PIDV?

Thanks I'll give it a try.

Just noticed that I could install Buster on my 10.11 (El Capitan) system from the App Store. Thanks Jeremy!


Re: PIDV AMBEserver installation nightmare

Flavio,
When we were troubleshooting the problem with the ThumbDV and the Raspberry Pi, Mike N4IRR wrote a Python script to better test the DV3000. The script works with the PiDV, ThumbDV and AMBEserver.
If you want to give it a try it is at <https://github.com/N4IRS/Analog_Bridge/blob/master/DV3000/AMBEtest4.py>

Hope this help.

Flavio,

Sorry you are having difficulties.  The response you are getting does not indicate that you are communicating with the PiDV.


I will try to get some time to write a better test program for the Pi.

I am using this on a RaspberryPi 2 with :-

Hope this helps a little ?
