iOSD Mini question - blinking green light...?

    My iOSD Mini green light is blinking. The instructions say solid green is "Normal" and flashing green means "Data Communicating"

    Using the DJI FPV hub, I have everything plugged in and working. Except when I switch to "OSD" on the FPV Hub - the FPV screen goes blank. Using the "VID" setting, the GoPro image shows on the FPV screen.

    Everything is updated. Like I said, the green light on the iOSD Mini is flashing, even when the P2 is just sitting there looking pretty.

    Is the green flashing for when connected to USB, or should it always be flashing?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's CANBus communications, so for the most part, whenever the Phantom is powered up the iOSD should be flashing. I don't recall ever seeing it just solid-green.

    Solid green when first powered on, then blinking.

    A replacement iOSD Mini has been received & installed. Everything works fine. I did indeed have a faulty iOSD Mini!

    I had gotten a faulty one as well. Frustrating.

    Seems this has happened to a few people. We're either of your iOSDs excessively warm to the touch?
