No RFM69 - No error



  • Hello,

    Currently I'm working on a gateway that uses the RFM69HW module with 868MHz.
    When I upload a sketch to my WeMos and no RFM is connected, it seems that there is no error in the init function.

    0;255;3;0;9;TSF:LRT:OK
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSF:WUR:MS=0
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT:TSP OK
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT:GW MODE
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:READY:ID=0,PAR=0,DIS=0
    0;255;3;0;9;MCO:REG:NOT NEEDED
    

    Shouldn't there be any error that no RFM is connected correctly and could not be initialized?

    I tried everything with a minimal sketch:

    #define MY_DEBUG
    #define MY_BAUD_RATE 9600
    
    //#define MY_RADIO_NRF24
    #define MY_RADIO_RFM69
    
    #define MY_GATEWAY_ESP8266
    
    #define MY_ESP8266_SSID "earth"
    #define MY_ESP8266_PASSWORD ""
    
    #define MY_PORT 5003
    
    #include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
    #include <MySensors.h>
    
    void setup()
    {
    }
    
    void presentation()
    {
    	// Present locally attached sensors here
    }
    
    
    void loop()
    {
    	// Send locally attached sensors data here
    }
    

    When I use a NRF24 module in the sketch I get a correct error:

    0;255;3;0;9;TSF:LRT:OK
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSF:WUR:MS=0
    0;255;3;0;9;!TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:CNT=1
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:PDT```

    @gloob This is a known limitation of the current RFM69 driver and has been addressed in the refactored (yet to be released) driver.



  • Hello,

    I have the sam problem when i use te mysensors 2.1.1 i mus remove HW from the sketch.
    If i #define RFM 69HW place on the sketch i get the error that the RFM 69HW
    MySensors.h:328:2: error: #error No forward link or gateway feature activated. This means nowhere to send messages! Pretty pointless.

    Greatz Ton

    @tekka Is there a branch somewhere with this refactored driver to test?
    Seems there is something acting strange with RFM69 + esp8266

    @emc2 I'm working on this PR, but WIP and untested: https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors/pull/722

    Thanks!
    Will have a shot at it tonight to try to troubleshoot this.
