Steve,
I am using Buster. My dashboard shows current tx only and no LH list. Is there a different install process?

yep you're correct... , its a problem with Nextion not connecting after a reboot. When I burn a saved img it loads but when I reboot or shutdown and turn back on it doesn't load. I gotta work on that but the dashboard does load.

There is no connection between the two. The dashboard scrapes the log file.

Thanks Steve for the update to get it working. I'm enjoying the current functionality as I can look over to see who is transmitting when in my shack.

I'm seeing the same thing. I just tried to add RFModeHang to the ini, but it doesn't seem to pick it up. I think some of this needs to be enabled with MMDVM_Bridge.

This is when I invoked from B menu the INFO but when I transmit, it does not show my info on my Nextion also it does not go to idle page after time expired when no signals are received. not sure why but i guess it is just how the dvswitch program sends info?

My picture was receiving. It's not picking up when I transmit at the moment.

Hi Jason,

Is this picture in transmitting your signal or receiving signal from others?


Re: Will Nextion Screen work with dvswitch?

I used a USB to TTL serial adapter as I have a fan plugged into the GPIO pins. That dashboard project is processor intensive in its current state and would make the Pi 3B+ get pretty warm so I put a pi fan in the slot of the case. The funny thing is I've tried to buy two cases to better cool it and neither was as effective as that fan and case which keeps it about 41F. So the other cases got repurposed to other Pi projects
