mithroxfxf / tumbleweed: please use the latest and report bugs03:20
CarlFKmithro: do you have 30 min or so now to help with mode-switch and Opsis?03:27
mithroCarlFK: not really, but I'll try03:28
mithroI'll be semi around for the next hourish03:28
mithroCarlFK: lets just try and see where we get03:29
CarlFKmithro: meh, I now isn't good for me either, and I am in no hurry.03:29
mithroWhat is the problem?03:29
CarlFKnothing that needs attention.  I can record.  but I'll spend some time pushing forward if you are around to help me make good use of that time03:30
CarlFKI bet there isn't good instruction on how to "use mode-switch"03:31
mithroCarlFK: What do you mean by "use mode-switch" ?03:32
CarlFKmithro: I have a fresh yakkety box and an opsis plugged into it.  how do I flash the latest firmware?03:33
mithroCarlFK: clone mode-switch; "make setup"; export PATH=XXXX; opsis-mode-switch --flash=abc.bin03:34
CarlFKthat is what I mean by "use mode-switch"03:34
mithroCarlFK: I'm hoping that after tumbleweed gets the packages working that becomes "install hdmi2usb-mode-switch deb; opsis-mode-switch --flash=abc.bin"03:35
CarlFKwell, right now there should be a URL you can give me that has what is needed03:35
CarlFKlast time we tried this it turned into "I guess you should just install the dev environment"03:36
mithroCarlFK: the "make setup" will get you the dev environment with all the necessary python, openocd, etc03:37
mithroCarlFK: in a self contained directory which you can rm -rf afterwards03:38
CarlFKmithro:  should I start with ?03:38
tpbTitle: GitHub - timvideos/HDMI2USB-mode-switch: Tool for switching boards supported by HDMI2USB firmware between multiple different modes (programming, webcam, etc). (at
mithroCarlFK: yes03:39
mithroCarlFK: "git clone ; cd HDMI2USB-mode-switch; make setup; <follow the export PATH instruction>" then you can run opsis-mode-switch03:39

CarlFKadd "make setup" to the top of that please03:40
mithroCarlFK: pull request welcome03:40
mithroIf you want the udev rules, you'll need to go into the udev directory and type "make install"03:43
CarlFKlets start with what you expect of  "install hdmi2usb-mode-switch deb; opsis-mode-switch --flash=abc.bin"03:45
mithroYou mean what do I expect you to be able to do when your install the deb?04:04
CarlFKmithro: no.  I mean the readme should list the steps I should follow now that will result in what the .deb will do in the future.04:22
CarlFKmithro: someone needs to define what it will do.  that someone is pretty much you.04:23
CarlFKmithro: make setup ends with:05:09
CarlFKInstalling 98-hdmi2usb-atlys.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/98-hdmi2usb-atlys.rules05:09
CarlFKand a bunch more, then: udev rules installed; 'make reload' to reload udev rules05:10

tumbleweedmithro: I tried the latest, and reported the bug here - it doesn't work08:09
mithroCan you please log on the bug tracker with all the information you can?08:10
tumbleweedwe're in the middle of a conference, now08:10
tumbleweedalso, we definitely have a sub-par opsis (that isn't the one we're using)08:11
tumbleweedit won't run firmware after v0.0.0-598-g07f8476, and displays some artifacts08:12
olasdthe opsis we're using shows the artifacts as well08:49

tumbleweeda lot less09:15

xfxfif the artifacts thing is the same artifacts thing i know of, it's increased the more inputs/outputs you enable10:46
xfxfi'm strictly using mine with 1-in, 1-out, encoder only currently, which minimises it10:46
tumbleweedthere are two types of artifacts we see10:49
tumbleweedraggedy right edges on the good opses10:49
tumbleweedand little black blocks over the middle of the screen on the more broken one10:50
xfxfalso regarding your good/bad opsis's, of the 14 or so i have here, half are usable, some only one input, the other half isn't10:50
xfxfi think mithro's theory is it's hardware tolerance differences and the newer firmware with a refactored memory controller should resolve it10:51
xfxfah, i don't get those - i either get lots of black lines (like snow) over the screen, or an input flat out doesn't work (doesn't see anything, or shows a ton of errors if debug is enabled)10:51
tumbleweedno, the newer firmware doesn't run on our broken one10:55
tumbleweedaha, last time I asked mithro about our broken one, he couldn't remember anything about it10:55
tumbleweedyeah, even our good one is only doing one input10:55
tumbleweedivodd, olasd: ^^ FYI10:56
ivoddtumbleweed: didn't you say that the 'broken' onde doesn't even boot with the new firmwarE?10:57
xfxfugh.  hopefully the new refactor indeed solves this :/10:59
tumbleweedivodd: yes11:00
tumbleweedxfxf: it doesn't. at least, not yet11:00
xfxfi didn't think that work was merged yet11:01
tumbleweedoh, I thought that was the 0.0.2 firmwares11:03
