Skylark 5.2 for Dreamcatcher 3


The cable has to be male one end - - female the other. I’m using a standard computer cable with one end cut off and just sticking the bare wires into the Dreamcatcher board. Ken


I ended using one purchased with the m/f ends on.
the word of caution is that the keyways are not used by the original sockets on the this cable. So you could inadvertently reverse the attachment. You have watch how you plug the connections.


I think you should perfect the OTA updates and try them out now as there are fewer users. Ken


Oh No… Ken, that leads to one more thing to describe in the user guide, You cover the Log-Viewer>LNB Status, but now there is the item Log-Viewer>Release-Info.

But I fully support the idea of automated OTA updates.


Idea number 2 for today, Make a game out of the wallpaper (like find the easter egg) or


Good point - - here’s where it is if you haven’t found it yet

and then

I’ll add better pictures in the next edition of the User Manual. Ken


OTA updates should have an easy way to revert to previous version. I seem to remember the last OTA botching a bunch of people’s rigs. Now with a display, you should add an option to revert back (downgrade) pre-update.



I have been experimenting with the Search button/app on the main Skylark 5.2

Here are some observations

-to search you have to have an underline between words >>> sometimes
depends if file name has the underlines
Only file names are searched, not the text in the body of the article
for example search “war of 1812” >> nothing
but search “war_of_1812” >> you find the wiki article

-the search is NOT capitalization case dependent… which is good
