So I got my OSPi configuration setup. I took a picture of the hunter configuration and I duplicated it with the OSPi board. But when I test a station nothing happens. The OSPi board is lit green so I know it’s being properly powered. I have a RPi 3 Model B board. I believe using a USB nano wifi adapter. I don’t have a microusb charger plugged into the RPi 3 Model B. Maybe it’s underpowered. Any idea what’s going on? See attached image for the original Hunter configuration.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but some pictures of your new setup may help.

If you just installed your OSPi in the past few days, there was some firmware / UI issue that we have fixed, so the issue you are seeing might be related. When you turn on a zone, on the user interface you should see a brief message that says ‘Station Queued’ and then that station will be shown running. If nothing happens, make sure you clear your browser history, or use the updated OpenSprinkler mobile app.May 30, 2018 at 8:33 pm #50337
Below is the OSPi config and the power adapter being used. The adapter is the same that was being used for the Hunter SRC controller. I noticed today when I plugged out the adapter and replugged, all zones came on but the water pressure wasn’t as forceful as when the Hunter was attached. I also plugged the USB charger into the RPi.

If I turn on a station, nothing happens. I saw the thread about the firmware issue, and I tried the “git checkout” steps mentioned but my firmware version still says 2.1.8.May 30, 2018 at 11:00 pm #50343
The issue with firmware 2.1.8 has been fixed — make sure you clear your browser history, or use the updated OpenSprinkler mobile app. If you check the ‘About’ page it should say App Version 1.7.7. If not, your app or UI is not up-to-date.June 4, 2018 at 12:07 am #50476
I also just got my ospi and I was able to get the software on a newly setup of Raspbian stretch lite. I can see the software working, but nothing happens with my sprinklers. I have 1.7.7. Any ideas on how to fix the issue. My rpi3 has a micro USB power.June 4, 2018 at 7:02 am #50479
The UK store is still only showing 1.7.6 for the app currently. It says it has a small fix for 2.18 firmware with OSPi, updated 6 days ago.June 4, 2018 at 10:33 am #50494
Version 1.7.7 fixed a bug detecting the region which prevented adjustment of the Zimmerman options. This should be available in the app stores soon however the web version should be at the latest version now.June 6, 2018 at 1:54 pm #50523
I was able to get everything all up and running last week. I made a few changes but I’m not sure what caused it to start working. Everything is working wonderfully. The changes were:
1. Using a RPi Model 3 instead of a Model 2
2. Using Raspbian Stretch Lite fresh install
