piHPSDR G2 encoder menue

Postby dl4zbg » Tue Sep 12, 2023 9:31 pm

Hello,

just for testing purpose I have been changing the lower encoder functions from "AF gain" and "RF gain" to filter functions. Now I am not able to restore the old functions anymore and it seems that the encoder menue does not store any changes.

Am I doing something wrong?

Volker,

Locate your props file, and correct it as follows:

encoders[1].switch_function=MUTE
encoders[1].top_encoder_function=AFGAIN
encoders[1].bottom_encoder_function=AGCGAIN

Hi Guys,

Try updating pihpsdr again, I just checked in a couple of changes:

[saturn 0eaa539] Fix for encoder_menu not editing correctly, also added ability to set back to defaults.

Hi Rick,

can you please point me into the right location for the manual with appendices H, I and J. You mentioned the manual on your github repo. I am shure that a few weeks ago I have seen that manual, but I didn't save it on my computer.

Hi Norbert,

Look in release/LatexManual/piHPSDR-Manual.pdf

Thank you, Rick. Too many .png, didn't see the pdf on the tiny screen.

Tried a couple of encoder control options, seems to work fine now. Thanks a lot Rick!

However, some encoder switches like "PS" or "COMP" still do not work.

I see there was another update on the pihpsdr program that I saw today, that fixes the issue with the Comp On/Off, it now works!

Thank you,

I guess I have spoken too soon. When one modifies the settings, then closes the menu, the settings remain. However, if you close down the pihpsdr program OR when one starts the PC, the default settings remain for the right side knobs (not the modified settings one has set).

I also remember 3 updates ago, if you shut down the pihpsdr program, and either re-started it later, or turned the PC on (after it was shut down), the pihpsdr program remembered where it was last centered on the screen (i am using an external display). Now it no longer does that in the last 2 updates.

Please see the previous posting.

Also, my PTT seems to no longer work when using the front panel Mic Jack with pihpsdr, however it still works when using the Thetis program with same configuration!

Sorry, after I have implemented the "Defaults" buttons and load the defaults upon program start,
I had forgotten to move the initialization call upwards, so the Encoder settings were re-set
to default AFTER being read from the props file.

This is now corrected in my master branch

github.com/dl1ycf/pihpsdr

According to my testing, you can now change the encoder settings in the encoder menu,
and after leaving and restarting piHPSDR they are correctly restored.

The "Default" buttons have been introduced to make it easier for you to
return to the values slik-printed in the enclosure.

Yours, DL1YCF.

There is something magic going on, since there as no change about this in piHPSDR for a long time.
Just to be sure: you have a G2aware version of piHPSDR (it states G2/Saturn in the title bar?)

Then I heard mysterious things that the rear and front 3.5mm Mic jack behave differently.
Can you check if this is true also for you?

The title bar displays "piHPSDR: saturn (Protocol 2 v8) on XDMA"

I connected the Mic to Tip, and PTT to Ring. When using the rear jack, I select "Mic to Tip, and PTT to Ring"

When using the front jack, I select "PTT on Tip, Mic and Bias on Ring" in both pihpsdr and Thetis. However, PTT with pihpsdr no longer works, but it still works with Thetis.

Not sure if you did an update since my last post, but pihpsdr now lets me modify the Switch and Encoder settings, and them remain after closing pihpsdr program and PC Off/On.

Pulled down the latest pihpsdr files, and now the PTT works again, Thank you!
