TinyTV & Tiny Video Player / Re: Files/Channels

Hello - I split your question into a separate topic since that other thread was pretty old.

You can convert videos on the app while the SD Card is connected to your computer, but you will still need to move the converted files to your SD card folder when they're done converting.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Cheers,
Réna

Yes, our conversion tool is packaged in a Windows application or MacOS application with a tutorial here: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/TSV-Converter-Tutorial/

We're working on a new app version for the future since the MacOS app has been shown to work inconsistently depending on the version of MacOS. I would give you a version of the new app, but it's too large to attach in the forum.

Cheers,
Réna

It sounds like something could be faulty with the hardware if the chip select at pin 10 isn't working. I'll email you about getting a replacement!

Yes, that's it.

Did you test the card before formatting it with Ubuntu? I'm curious if the formatter you used could have mismanaged the protected memory of the SDHC SD Cards we distribute.

The windows formatter you linked from our site has some warnings that formatters from other operating systems could lower performance, but it doesn't mention that the card would be unusable. It still works with dragging and dropping files, so it's possible the Ubuntu formatter could have formatted the protected memory of the SD Card making the card info unreadable. Can you share what tool you used, or are you able to look into how it reformats SDHC cards?

Could you try writing a .txt file to the SD Card to see if that works? You can use this example, you'll just have to change the Serial object to SerialUSB: https://github.com/arduino-libraries/SD/blob/master/examples/DumpFile/DumpFile.ino - This example uses SD.begin(chipSelect) rather than the card.init(SPI_HALF_SPEED, chipSelect) in the example that's not working so it handles initialization a little differently.

The pixel trail and failure animation are so polished! Simple but incredible. Well done!

Thanks for sharing!

Only the power switch on the bottom left disconnects the power completely. The bottom left button and remote just turn off the screen.

I hope that helps!

Thanks,

Andrew,

Oh no! Sorry this sat for a while. Have you been able to get rid of the glitches? Do the .tsv videos still play just fine?

Let me know!

Thanks,
Réna

Hiya,

First thing I would check - is the SD Card fully inserted? It hangs out a bit, but it does need pushed in all the way to the connector. The boards should also be flatly connected with the tan 32-pin connector between the TinyZero and SD Shield.

When you connect the SD card and open it on just your computer, I assume that works just fine? Can you drop files onto it? Make sure to safely eject it when you unplug it - some data corruption could cause issues when trying to read the info from the card.

Let me know if that helps!

Cheers,
Réna

John,

Yes, that's right. That's the software we load on the TinyScreen+ boards. I believe it may have one extra setting for changing the bottom left button to a channel down button instead of a power button, so it has one more tiny feature than the stock firmware.

Cheers,
Réna

General Discussion / Re: No output from microphone Wireling
« on: July 21, 2022, 02:24:16 PM »
I'm glad you were able to sort out the solution (or maybe it sorted itself out?  ;D)

Something to watch out for with the Wireling system that happens rarely - the pins on the inside of the connector on the Wirelings or the Wireling Adapter Shield can have the pins bent when the wires are plugged in at an angle. It's always a pin furthermost right or left, so it could be either the GND or INT pin that isn't connected when this happens.

If this happens - you can straighten out the pin carefully with some thin tweezers and some magnification (or good eyes)

Hello,

The microphone will detect the ambient noise, so the noisy output makes sense. With the serial plotter open, I recommend making a very loud noise or blowing into the microphone hole.

The Wireling Scanner might not give useful information since the analog state of High or Low isn't always helpful - the microphone could be detected as a logic Low and wouldn't produce different output from the default "Low" state being output from the program.

Let me know if that helps!

Thanks,
Réna

Hi there,

It's possible you have some hidden files on your SD Cards causing problems. This happens most often with Mac devices. Check out this forum thread and let  me know if it helps: http://forum.tinycircuits.com/index.php?topic=2337.msg5024#msg5024

Cheers,

Hello Arne,

Unfortunately we cannot easily change the screen size, it would require a new circuit board design and software design to support this.  We are looking at doing some other screens in the near future, but for now the screen you have is the only one we can support.

Cheers,
Réna
