Quick question from my sea trials #3
Updated to the newest (5) last night and now the zero depth/calibrate compass doesn't work as a rescue for when the camera doesn't come on after startup (like it did for previous version).
The startup with camera working is intermittent, i thought maybe it was voltage but doesn't seem to make any difference with freshly charged batteries.
When I was dragging driftwood around accidentally with my tether today I had a voltage drop enough to freeze things up. I tried a restart from chrome, after a bit cockpit started back up but again without the camera. I tried the Zero depth, calibrate compass, zero depth thing to no avail. I ended up selecting 'reload from card' and then restarting chrome and got camera to connect.
Disclaimer, i did try the new 'update software' thing, and had three items that installed successfully, but it almost looked like one of those items was 'older' than the new update from github?
I may give reloading from actual card and flashing things a try and see if that helps?
I've taken out any odd connectors and have run the home port direct to the tether (I had a little white connector in there and thought maybe it was causing too much resistance) with no change.
Startup with the update seems to take a long time compared to before, but the light flash to indicate 'ready' is a nice touch.
On the bright side, my dive buddy with a pro camera system came out today and shot some STUNNING footage of the OpenROV in the water, I'll be editing that tonight :)
Thoughts on my camera issue? Thanks!
