Re: 7000DLE MkII PSU Voltage calibration

Hi Neoklis, You may have better luck with that question over in the OpenHPSDR reflector. Have you joined that yet? Hi Bryan, No, I will look it up and join. Having looked into the Thetis source code, it seems that there is one more factor to take into account, the voltage divider ratio used to redu...

I am writing software, my own P2-based client for the 7000DLE. Its already functional in receive and I am trying to add a widget to display PSU volts. The decode of bytes 49 and 50 evaluates to about 1660 so 1660 / 4095 * 5 = 2.02

7000DLE MkII PSU Voltage calibration

Hi, I am writing some code to convert the PSU Voltage ADC readout (Protocol II, Hardware to PC, High Priority Status Packet, bytes 49-50) to actual PSU volts. I used the formula for the 200D in the Protocol II v3.8 PDF manual: Calibration constant for Supply V: V = ADC value /4095 * constant, consta...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

Hi all The fault was in the end the Ethernet controller chip. This was repaired by Doug Wigley W5WC - my thanks. Both the bootloader and programmer work well, although the programmer reports the rig as unknown. However it did successfully upgrade the P2 firmware to Pre8. My own client software works...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

If you are booting into the normal P2 firmware, i.e. have not: - loaded P1 firmware by accident - forgotten to move the bootloader switch to the correct position - forgotten to cycle the power after moving the bootloader switch No, I made certain that I got the above right and several times. So, as...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

Have you tried running Thetis? No, but I could try if it runs in Linux, don't have windoze. However some tests I made a little while ago indicate that the Ethernet connection will not go up to 1000Mb speed. I used "ethtool" to set the computer's Ethernet controller to 1000Mb but it would ...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

As I said in my second post above, I recommend you use Bootloader. The web and command line programmer for P2 is not reliable at this time. Yes, the Bootloader always seems to work successfully, uploading firmware and setting IP address. Also, you should be trying and most likely using the latest f...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

The only reason that worked is because there was P1 firmware loaded first. Once you loaded P2 firmware that will not work anymore, not until you put P1 firmware back into the unit. One more question - how do we use the new Bootloader/Programmer tools you mentioned earlier? Is it a matter of install...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

I recommend you use HPSDR Bootloader to reinstall the P2 firmware you wish to use, then revisit your network and PC setup. Use a known good client to confirm operation before going back to your client. Actually I made a mistake, I was trying HPSDRProgrammer_v2_nopcap. If I remember well it did work...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

There are no LED indications that are very helpful other than the Ethernet link and traffic indicators. Hi I have some more clues that I believe indicate a partial failure (slow speed) of the KSZ9021RL Ethernet controller. If I manually set the Ethernet speed to 100Mb (using "ethtool" in ...

ANAN-7000DLE MkII Ethernet comms failure

Hi My ANAN-7000DLE MkII S/N 7000DLEMKII-011 failed recently, while receiving a broadcast station. The failure started with a short crackling noise and then reception stopped. After this, attempts at restarting mostly failed since the Transceiver would not respond to discovery. There were just a coup...

So, change the firmware filename from: Orion_MkII_Protocol_2_v1.9.rbf to: Metis_Mkll_Protocol_2v1.9.rbf and it should go right in.

Cannot write Protocol 2 .rbf to 7000DLE MkII

Hi I have been trying to upgrade my (very recently bought) 7000DLE MkII to Protocol 2. I first tried to use the Protocol 1 Programmer (the rig arrived with P1 v2.4 firmware) but it didn't work out. The programmer discovered the 7000 (I had it and Ethernet port set up to static IP) and managed to era...

Re: 7000DLE Ethernet board type?

Looking at ghpsdr at Github, it has not been updated in two years. This is probably not a good guide for development. You should be looking at the clients that remain currently under development for guidance. That would be PowerSDR mRX for Protocol 1 firmware, and Thetis for Protocol 2 firmware. Th...

Thanks John, so the 7000DLE MkII is using protocol 1? Since it reports itself as device type 10 (Orion2)?

Hi all I am trying to add code to my "sdrx" SDR receiver application, to discover the 7000DLE. I hope eventually to be able to add some code to sdrx to make it receive from the 7000DLE. My discovery code reports the rig as below: sdrx: Discover_IF(): Found device # = 0 Board name = Unknown...
