Re: ADV7280A-M Image Capture Issues

Hiya, One issue I'm having is it seems, although I can't be certain, is that the ADV7280 is selecting the input as SVideo as the image is there but almost undiscernible due to it being extremely dark. It only does this once in a blue moon and never when I'm about and in a position to debug it furthe...

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Thanks for the info, I'm going to set 1920x1080P50 as Native as that's really what we want and the source generally has that setting or 1920x1080P60 which the 3B+ can't handle. I'll leave the other mode of 1280x720 in there as other sources might only support that. I can then query the input video t...

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Hiya all, I have a question on the 1080P50EDID.txt file, upon loading it into an EDID editor I found the CEA data block seems to have the 1920x1080P50 entry in Video Descriptor 14 (I used the Deltacast EDID and manually entered and then double checked the hex data). My question is what is set in the...

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Ah ha, nicely spotted!! I've now set the index to 11 and then forced the pixelformat to UYVY and it seems to be working. It's almost like the auto detect just isn't working 100% of the time but I could be wrong. Anyway many many thanks for your help, it's much appreciated!!

Kind Regards,

Dan

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Sometimes upon boot up after I issue the command to set the EDID and setup the timings I get no output from the TC358743, or more precisely a capture that consists of no output. I can see after multiple reboots that sometimes when I query the log status that the system says it needs 3 CSI-TX Lanes a...

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

More testing with disconnects and reconnects on my part needs to be done, but yes I agree the edid should be fine after being set from boot. Maybe I just need to be less cautious for a change :)

Thanks for the info, as always great advice.

Cheers, Dan

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Ok, ignore that last request. FYI, if you run the v4l2-ctl command to set the EDID, then set the timings and then start capturing immediately you get this issue. If you pause for 500ms and then capture it works a treat. I guess the I2C bus hasn't completed or the TC358743 hasn't sync'd its PLL or so...

Hiya 6by9, I have a problem with capturing more than 1 set of images. The first time it runs absolutely perfectly, the same v4l2_mmal demo you have on github works flawlessly with the ADV7280A-M and using it with the TC358743 works once and once only. I get the following: We're encoding to /media/us...

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Wasn't the original white Now TV box based on a raspberry pi using the same SoC? It does seem as though sky went to some trouble to prevent it being used as anything else though which is a shame as they're now obsolete :(

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

geosapien,

are you using a directly connected screen / monitor on the pi or using vnc? If you're using vnc then you won't see the video stream due to the way the gpu renders the video.

HTH, Dan

Re: HDMI to CSI-2 via TC358743 on kernel 4.1

Hiya 6by9, Thanks I'll check that between my board and the B101 I have. I think you're spot on with the i2c master on the edid lines so I can rule that out. I think it's more likely the hot plug lines being my issue and I may have a dead chip so I'll be checking against my second dev board when I ge...

However the hardware needs to be all inclusive so I've designed the board with the TC358743 on board. As I say I can communicate with it fine and the input signal...
