Beta Bug Tracking/Feedback?

Hi folks,

Started working on converting my cockpit over to the AM4 beta and have some issues that may already be known bugs - is there a beta feedback forum or similar anywhere?

Thanks,

Paul

Re: Added a custom instrument now PI panel never full loads and disconnects from air manager

Just to give a little update on where I am with this, I moved all connections to an Arduino Mega and ran it direct from the PC, the compass then works as expected alongside all the other instruments. I suspect this confirms the suspicion that there is a bug in the PI AM code somewhere. Happy from my...

Re: Rpi 4

Thanks Corjan, not worth the price of entry then by the sounds of it, will stick with my 3.

Re: Rpi 4

Hi folks, can anyone comment on the performance of the 4? Does it allow for smoother gauges with Air Manager or is the difference negligible?

Many thanks,

Paul

Re: Added a custom instrument now PI panel never full loads and disconnects from air manager

More general question for everyone whilst Corjan looks into this - once the Pi has stopped communicating with Air Manager I am having to disassemble and refresh the SD Card which is physically a pain because its built into the panel - is there a way to force a reset via SSH? I never lose SSH access....

Re: Added a custom instrument now PI panel never full loads and disconnects from air manager

Ok thanks Corjan.

It’s worth noting that in isolation (i.e. this being the only thing on a panel) it works fine, it’s when I load it into my Cessna 172 panel (basically the default with a few instruments removed) that the problem happens.

Many thanks

Re: Added a custom instrument now PI panel never full loads and disconnects from air manager

Hi Tony,

Tried the polling method in post 23 above (or at least I think I did! Please feel free to pick holes in it!! :) ), pi shows an error about initialising hw outsize of the first run of the script?

By loss of comms I mean the pi stops talking to air manager.

Many thanks

Paul
