Re: Streaming using Raspberry PI

Re: Noel's video re Minitioune software?

BTW - my tech adviser (Tim, my son) said to get to the Console menus, I must link direct to the household router, and it wouldn't work just plugging into the PC RJ245 socket. Is that so ? Not quite clear on the video. Yes, that is correct, you should connect via your household router. You can conne...

Re: Screen Lock Up

Yes, there's been several updates since October.

The update process is automatic - see https://wiki.batc.tv/Updating_your_Portsdown_Software for details.

Umm - I did one on the Portsdown software here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkjheie8uOk but not one on the MiniTiouner software.

Steve has posted a link to the wiki page which should get you going...

Re: December 9th and 10th activity weekend

Yes, I'm afraid we wimped out - no snow here but 1 degree, heavy rain and windy was enough to make the indoor shack more appealing!

We will be out in a few days time to try 24GHz DATV and will take other bands so will post plans on here.

Re: ADF4351 Synthesiser board

Doh - just ordered one on the slow boat...

Now does anyone have an ADF 5355 (the 11GHz version) for sale - as I'm just about to order one for use as an 9936MHz LO on my 10GHz system.

December 9th and 10th activity weekend

Don't forget - this coming weekend is another excuse to spend some time in the shack or go out portable and test all that gear you've been building. This is not just for the portable warriors who go out to the local hilltops (the weather forecast is dry but cold) but is an opportunity to get on the ...

Re: Drivers for MiniTiouner under Win8.1 - how to install?

Hi John, I have had it running on a Win 8.1 machine (my laptop came with 8.1 before I upgraded it to 10). I don't recall any particular issue, although on the other hand I seem to remember having to manually copy FTD2XX.DLL from one PC to another at some point. It maybe worth searching to see if the...
