I am posting this here because I feel that this might be a software related issue, although I'm not sure. Another user, along with me have been experiencing this same issue. It goes as follows:
-Power up ROV
- Log into Chrome and onto the ROV
-When logged in the camera will not load. You get the blinking picture in the top lefthand corner.
-Although there is no video feed you still have control of the ROV in every aspect.
-To get the camera to boot you must go to the "diagnostics" page and click "zero depth" and "calibrate compass"
-After this the camera feed stay live and working well
-once the camera boots though, the read of the ROV goes dead. No feedback info such as Amp, Volts, or anything is received and you are not able to control the rest of the ROV in any way.
It is important to note that this has been happening to me constantly with full batteries and under optimal opperating conditions. Also the other user that has been experiencing this issue is Nathan Ash
here is the link to the discussion leading up to this problem (maybe it will provide some insight)
