So something is going on with my 2.5 ROV. I had everything working, and then I put the internal electronics into the Etube, and everything stopped working.
I checked all connections, and everything looked fine. When I plugged the ethernet and usb on the topside adapter, only the green power light on the cape would work. I pulled off the BBB and hooked it up to my computer with a patch cord and 5v power supply. I was able to open up the cockpit, and view the camera working.
I figured something was wrong with the home adapter on the ROV, and when I pulled it off, all of a sudden the orange light on the cape turned on. At this point, I put the BBB back on the cape (Without the home adapter) and connected the BBB directly to my computer. When I plugged in the USB on the topside (But without an ethernet cord), the cape and BBB powered up, and I had full control in the cockpit.
I'm thinking that there is something wrong with the home adapter - the interesting thing is that the home adapter on the ROV gets quite hot when its plugged in, even though nothing is working. Any thoughts as to what might be happening?
