pilight-raw and plight-debug not working
#1
Hi,

I'm running pilight 7.0 on a Raspberry with a Arduino Nano and a 433MHz Superheterodyne 3400 RF.

For some reason when I use either pilight-raw or pilight-debug it doesn't show me anything when I'm using a remote to send 433MHz signal (tried different remotes). At the moment I run the commands I have stopped the pilight daemon.

When the pilight-daemon is running both pilight-receive and pilight-send work fine, so communication and the 433MHz module seem OK. I'm just trying to fix a device that isn't listed yet.

I also have another Raspberry, nano and 3400RF set with the exact same issue. Is it a known issue that both won't work when using a nano?

I haven't tried directly using GPIO yet, because I don't have a filter set, but was curious if someone else also faced this issue before.

Thanks!

Can you post the "hardware" section of your config.json please? Did you double check that all the pin numbers are correct in your config and your wiring?

You don't necessarily need to use a prefilter, it's perfectly safe to connect the receiver to the GPIOs without a filter. You might receive a lot of noise, but you should try this to confirm that the hardware works.

Warning: Connecting a receiver powered with 5 volts to a GPIO without some kind of level shifting will probably kill the GPIO, because the GPIO's are designed for 3.3 volts!

That depends entirely on the receiver, the receivers I've used all use 3.3V for the data pin but are powered by 5V. However, this would also apply to the mentioned Arduino, although I don't know what voltage those pins operate at. But yes, @Kennie should double check this before use.
