Exactly.PhilE wrote:Just to warn you, although current images do support CM3, the main UART (ttyAMA0/serial0/UART0) is disabled by default. This is an error which will be fixed in future releases, but until then if you want to use the serial port you need to add "dtparam=uart0=on" to config.txt.
Sorry about that.
Is this what your referring too, https://www.wdc.com/products/wdlabs/med ... WDLB004RNN I ask because its on my want list, but only if the CM3 fits inside and is compatible. Please advise?gregeric wrote:Well RS seem to be on the ball.
CM3 currently residing in a WD HDMI Stick, flashed OK with OSMC. Haven't stress tested it yet to confirm whether the carrier board's SMPS is up to the job (I reckon it will be OK, from previous tests with a dummy load on its Vbat line). I will have to get the Dremmel out to make a hole & allow a lump of metal to be attached before I do that. Looks like they've anticipated the extra 1mm height on the module too - I can now see why they left one side of the case open
CM3L is waiting to be mod'd with eMMC >4GiB.
That makes it fairly likely that they did the same thing with the SATA Adapter.gregeric wrote:Yes that's the one. It will certainly need modifying with heat sinks or fans, and only then will I be able to get it to do some intensive work to see if the on board power supply is adequate at high loads. WD have wired the core Vbat supply to 3V3, but it appears this 3V3 line is quite beefy.
I haven't checked, but I need to get the unit out later this week and update the software. I also want to rework the the "boot" partition on the SSD to be FAT32 (to conform to the new release) and copy the CM1's boot partition files to the one on the SSD.gregeric wrote:I don't see how that necessarily follows from that statement alone. I get more confidence that all will be well from the way they have cut out the case of the Media Stick to accommodate the bigger module - they must have been in the loop over future changes. It never made sense to me with a CM1 inside, but it does now.
Have you checked that the buck regs are similar on your SATA board, as I indicated previously to you here: viewtopic.php?f=98&t=164125&hilit=regul ... w#p1060249 ?
Thanks @gregeric!gregeric wrote:<off topic>
Nice to see you back AndyD
I suspect there's a Chinese Zero whose revision you should add too.
This guy appears to have one: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=141296#p1099811
Edit: although that's likely just different in the manufacturer bit field, as will be the E14 made in PRC CM3s.
Thanks for confirming OSMC works on the CM3.gregeric wrote:So far I've flashed the CM3 in the Media Stick & booted OSMC without a hitch. That'll be it for a day or so I' afraid.
