The receiver was launched in CQ-TV 265 and fully incorporated into Portsdown 2019 Version 201910230 and later versions.

It uses the LongMynd receiver software written by Heather M0HMO. The original source code is at https://github.com/myorangedragon/longmynd , but it is now installed automatically during any Portsdown build or update.

Selection of the RX button on Menu 1 takes you to the Portsdown Receiver menu. Access to the previous LeanDVB receiver is retained through a new Button on Menu 2. The Portsdown Receiver Menu changes between frequencies and settings for QO-100 and Terrestrial DATV when the top LH button is pressed.

On terrestrial choose a frequency, symbol rate and player or UDP stream. The software searches for a frequency lock and displays received TV some seconds later.

The data overlayed on the image can be hidden by touching the left hand side of the screen; touching the right hand side of the screen stops the receiver and returns to the receiver menu. If using the VLC player (which will successfully show some H265 signals) the data is always obscured by the picture and cannot be unhidden.
