OSD issue
« on: November 13, 2017, 15:27:00 »
Good morning,
I installed a knock-off 3DR telemetry radio to the pixhawk, and wired it to a MinimOSD with the intention of eventually splicing in the video feed from my camera.  However, in the interim, I can't get the data to come off the minim.  As far as I can tell, the radios are working; after the pixhawk is powered, the green lights on the radio go from blinking to solid, so it seems like they are connecting to each other.  When I view the info in either an app on my phone, or try it directly on the laptop, I can't get any data from it.

I did configure the minim board when I got it, including firmware update, etc.  but I fear I might have hit the reset button on it while plugging it in.  Can that wipe all info from the board, and I would have to reconfigure it?

Any other major items I should look for?

So I ended up soldering the two pads on the board (I thought they were like that when I bought the board) and when I plug the board in and turn the copter on, I can see both red leds turn on now.  No matter what I do though, I can't see anything coming out of it.

I am not sure at this point if its the minimosd or the 3dr radio that is the problem.  I took some pictures and will post what I have set up so far when I get a minute.

Well, I have decided the board must be fried.  I can see the two red led's indicating that both sides of the board are powered, but the very tiny blue led, that I think indicates data being processed, is never doing anything.  I can't currently test just the 3dr radio by itself, as I altered the connection cables, and can only attach the air radio to the minimosd board.  Thus, if its not functioning, I dont think the air radio will send any data. 

The green lights are on solid for both radios, which I think means they have connected to each other, but I don't think there is anything to send.

I am going to order another minimosd and try from there.
