New gateway going live and migrating slowly from Domoticz to Homeassistant. At least to try it.
@eme - its is very strange - I have a big batch here with Rev 10 and i checked atleast 20 of them randomly and all have continutiy between D6/pro mini and D6/MysX. You must have had extreme bad luck and if you check the others it should be ok.
Can you post a picture (close up) of the board not working please showing D6/Pro mini and D6/MysX.
For 12v I would use the prototyping area with a 12 > 5v converter. If you want to use the internal voltage regulator on the pro mini you can connect to RAW but beware that clones will not handle this very good. The specs are 12v but I have seen many bad clones getting destroyed.
I dont really remember this image and from which context this is from. I guess the lines represent different voltages. Adding 12V on reg and a 12>5v regulator on the TO92 footprint will convert and feed the board 5v, but kill the radio...
@eme good you found the issue. First time I ever hear of a comfirmed PCB hardware bug, so its very rare. Very strange the silkscreen were moved or not aligned correctly as well. From where did you order the PCB?
The documentation states which pins connect to what on the PCB, so make sure you check that out. D9-D13 are used by the radio as in all MySensors projects. D8 for the extra flash. You can find the MysX documentation here as well if you need to find out more about the pins.
@grumpazoid - the problem is that if you have messages from the node not reaching the gateway, they will not be visible... If you have communication issues you must debug both the node and gateway. The comparison between them can be a hint as well.
@elcheekytico - hmm, I can not seems to parse your node log - but anyways, it seems like no reply is the major error code here so it seems like its an issue with the radio communication.
How is your hardware setup. How do you power the node and gateway?
How did you build the gateway? Is this one starting up correctly?
I see you define alot of things in the gatewat sketch... seems a bit strange, but maybe thats right. Im not defining that much: https://github.com/sundberg84/HomeAutomation/blob/master/Sketches MySensors RFM69 radio/RFM69gw/Rfm69gw/Rfm69gw.ino
#define MY_RFM69_CS_PIN 6
I dont think EasyPCB RFM Edition is wired to D6 - do you use this for the gateway or only the node?
