Hi Keith,
Thanks for the pictures. Only one thing wrong and it points to a problem with the repeater! I have been looking at other problems with streaming to BATC using a RPi. It would stream from a camera but not from this video source. The problem was a switch on a hdmi to composite video converter having been knocked to NTSC. While I was getting colour pictures through the repeater I thought nothing of it. BUT then I realised I was transmitting color pictures as in NTSC and switched the switch to PAL Now the streamer works but my video through the repeater is monochrome. The repeater is in NTSC mode and therefore your pictures are also monochrome and may be the syncs could be causing problems. So people seeing my pictures in colour will have been misguided into thinking the repeater is working in PAL colour when infact it is working in NTSC color! One of the nearest repeaters to USA but I don't think we will see many signals from there.....
