Mini DV4 on Raspberry PI - Mini Howto

Mini DV4 on Raspberry PI - Mini Howto

Write it to an SD card (on Ubuntu - extract it - right click and choose “Open with Disk Image Writer)

Boot the PI and run “Raspi-Config” - Choose “Internationalization Options” and set the locality / timezone / keyboard settings.  Choose “enable SSH”. Then Choose “Expand File System” and re-boot.

Note: Don’t bang your head running the version that comes with the image.  

do “sudo su” and delete everything in the /root directory. - should just be a bunch of .cfg files.

Go back to on your main pc (because there is no web browser on the PI image) and download the current software to it’s own directory.  Then SSH to pi@ipaddress (pw is raspberry) and sftp the new software into the dv4mini directory.

Now on the pi insert the dongle and run the software.  You will probably need to go to the “expert settings” tab and select fixed IP.  Put in  

It will probably load a weird default config but you should be able to edit it to your own settings.  

Close the software and then re-start it to make sure it actually saved your config.
