TV module has vanished!

  • Attempting to use the TV module is failing - I'm getting:

    >Uncaught Error: Module tv not found
     at line 1 col 19
    var g=require("tv").setup({type:"pal",video:­A7,sync:A6,width...

    ... when trying to run the examples. I've taken a look in and, true enough, the module is missing. And I'd just soldered resistors and a header to my board :(

  • Which board are you using it on?

    The TV module is one that's built-in so you wouldn't find any JS for it.

    I just checked and it's in Espruino Pico and WiFi but it looks like I had to remove it from the Original about a year ago because I was having trouble fitting everything in.

    However I just did a build for the original board without network, but with TV. It's attached - you should be able to 'advanced flash' it.

  • Ah, makes sense, it's a classic board. I'll have to pop a sticker on it so that I don't blindly update it by accident :)

  • Nice! That definitely looks more sinclairy :)

    I think longer-term I need to figure out a better solution for having multiple builds for the Original Espruino - it's getting progressively harder to cram everything all in at once.
