    I have strange issue with the QO-100 beacon since I installed the new Minitioune Software, if I watch it in the software is self the video is hang partly, sometimes show some part from a picture was in the video while ago, sound is not in sync with lips etc. But it is only when I watch the beacon and only in the minitioune software it self.

    When I record it to a TS file and watch it with VLC or look the stream with VLC on another PC all is OK. When watch with the new Scan&Tioune software it is as well OK. Any other video I RX via QO-100 is OK as well.


    All I changed is to copy the new version to the existing minitioune directory and edit the new ini file with the required settings, for the Scan&Tioune software I changed to VLC 32Bit.


    Tried as well the old minitoune version, as I had a copy of the directory before copy in the new, but this show the same now. Before all was OK. I have no clue what I could check to isolate and fix it, any idea is well come.

    After some further tests I found a solution, as soon as I connect the minitiouner with both USB ports it works even if the CAT interface is not used by another application. It was no problem to reproduce that, with only one USB Cable connected to minitiouner and CAT not used problem is seen, as soon as I connect both USB ports it works.

    DD0KP Heiner, thank you for the hints, I checked this already, they have different IDs, Names etc. is different, except of the vendor ID, even the chip type is different FT2232H in minitiouner and FT232R on the CAT interface.


    Swap the Adapter is no option, like in the minitiouner it is build in the device (Funkamateur BX-120 - USB-TRX-Interface One).


    Tried already to remove all devices and drivers and replug them in different order, first the minitiouner but windows device manager still show the CAT interface as USB Serial Converter and the minitiouner as the USB Serial Converter A and USB Serial Converter B even if the device internal Names are different.

    Hi,

    is there anyway to force the minitoune software to use a specific/correct USB to serial connector??


    I have the problem that I sometimes get the message an incompatible Hardware is used. When narrow it down to find out what is the cause of this message I see that my CAT interface uses as well a USB to serial FTDI device and when both are connected and the CAT isn't already used by an other application it seems that minitoune try to use that FTDI device instead of the one from the minitoune pro V2 hardware.


    If I unplug the CAT device or it is already in use by some other application it works as expected. Now I search for any solution where I don't need to start an other application or unplug the USB cable to CAT interface before starting minitoune.


    Any idea/suggestion is welcome

    I had Lense 1 or 2 with my poty kits, when I compared it with the Lenses from an Inverto and a Venton Rocket LNB (3rd from right on picture above) the lens from Venton Rocket give the best result, the Inverto was the second best and than the one was send with the poty kit.

    Hello Piero,

    do you have a source for the frame you used for the 2,6" LCD??

    Searched of some while ago but couldn't find any. If you created your own is the stl file available somewhere or would you be so kind to make it available ??

    I used a lens from an Inverto Rocket LNB it fit perfekt on the BaMaTech Patchfeed. When I compared the lenses on my, now used, Potty Feed the Venton was a bit better than the Inverto one but as it fit so perfekt I let it on the BaMaTech. See Picture below. I have the first version on the BaMaTech with SMA plug for the 10GHz, attached is modified GM201.


    DD4YR,

    thank you for the link, but didn't get VLC on the local PC to connnect to the MiniTiouner, with Multicast to other PC works fine.


    When try the settings as described on the the batc wiki page I get nothing, even can't see any packets with wireshark, VLC just say can't connect. Even when I switch off the firewall to check if this will block something it won't work with VLC and MiniTiouner running on same PC.


    Hardware is a MiniTiouner Pro V2 and Laptop with Win10.


    As well found nothing how I can view a second stream which was one of the reason why I bought the Pro V2.


    Any hint is welcome

    Searching for some documentation/Handbook/staterguide or similar.


    I get the first steps done and would be able to RX a stream via QO-100 but would like to go to next level, i.e. there a 4 green/red lights in the bottom right area and all need to be green but what does it mean if a specific light is on red, how to show the video on external PC, how to RX a second signal and what is needed for it, just a second USB cable seems not the only this need to be done.


    So there are lots of questions if you are new to this. I found a video from Jean-Pierre on youtube seems to be a good explanation for some of the questions but as I don't understand frensh it didn't help much (YouTube - Minitioune pour les débutants).

    Didn't found a document, all I found till now, i.e. here in the foru or on vivadatv.org, helped me to get initially started, but how to get deeper into this. Maybe I just didn't look on the right place.


    So if there is something explain the features and how to use them please give me a hint where I can find them.

    Yes, you can ;-)


    I use currently a Venton single LNB, same I use for NB. But as I would like to use both in parallel I will chang to another LNB soon.

    Only I had to do was to change the LO settings in the software from 9750MHz to 9750,45MHz like I did it in SDR Console. Without this change I wasn't able to RX signals with < 500KS.

    I have a case like shown here:

    https://de.aliexpress.com/item…042311.0.0.11086c37FXPGME


    On backside I have the Antenna/USB/power plug.


    On frontside in the middle I would like to mount the Display , on the on left side power switch and power LED and on right side the LEDs for USB and LNB.


    If you ever seen a case where I made a square hole i.e. for some conector you would know why I would like to use bezel or frame. :-)

    It should cover the border of the hole and make sure there is a proper distance between the metal front and the circuitboard of the display.


    With google I found some for the 1.3" Oled or 2.2" LCD from Digole but not for the 2.6"

    I tested some different applications and at the end go with Gimp.


    I know it maybe over sized for this but I normally use Lightroom/Photoshop to work with my photos and gimp is similar than photoshop so it was a fast learning curve for me.

    As I searched a software allow to add text in a extra layers where I even would be able to edit later, so I can prepare some layouts. I end up with gimp as all other free software I tested didn't satisfy me.

    Drop them a mail and ask for it, worked fine for me. If you don't speak frensh, like me, google translate may help.

    That worked fine for me. I ordered via mail and paid via paypal and about 4-5 days later the parts arrived.
