Firmware 5.0 is out

Just installed it. Some interesting goodies, including the AS3539 support. Plus there is a GPIO feature that I need to ponder... :-k

Greg,

My 5.0 install went fine. I'm looking to see what other goodies have been included in the new firmware update today.

One question - Under the Signals tab of the web display, there is a box labeled Signal Tools. Should the 1 PPS Sampling be enabled or does it matter?

Also, so far, my Live Signals section is blank. Guess that means it hasn't detected anything since the reboot...

I activated the 1PPS view for a few seconds. The waveform seemed to show the 1PPS pulse from the GPS.

Thanks for the heads up Greg.

Update was flawless.

I thought Tobi or Egon had said that in the next update, this one, that the status was going to be included on the setting tab under the parameters so you could see your status when you click apply and not go back to the status tab to see if your status is normal.....  Was I dreaming?

Joe,

It is right at the top of each screen, between Blitzortung.org Controller and the Blitzortung logo.
Sometimes there is a lag before the screen refreshes and it shows up.
Not exactly what I was hoping for, but it is an improvement. I still would like to see a status "LED" right near the gain controls.
You need to scroll up after setting the gain. The best part about it is that you can see the status on the "Signals" 'scope tab.

Yes, a status "LED" is what I was trying to say.

Thanks
