I'm really sorry if this subject has been asked before but I cannot find the answer.
If I connect my cheap china cam (PAL) to the MinimOSD (v.1.1) everything is fine, the signal is overlayed by the data, but if I do the same with my GoPro Hero2's analog signal only the video is transmitted. No overlay at all. If I remove my video source the overlay appears on the gray background.
I don't think the minimosd shows the home direction and distance if the APM2 hasn't got a GPS fix. Could that explain the behaviour?
Hi Michael and thanks to answer.At first I thinked this, I tryd it outside room, the GPS signal fixed, but home direction and distance missing and longnitude and latidude values was zeros.
Have you upgraded the firmware on the minimosd? If you have upgraded to 2.40 on your APM2 you should make sure that the minimosd is using the firmware with mavlink1.0
I use Mission Planner 1.2.2 mav 1.0 and ArduCam OSD Config-By Michael Oborne 0.5.4425.14358. Yes, I upgraded firmwares several times, but now not sure, doing I right.
I upgraded OSD with MinimOSD_19_MAV10.hex and APM do I must check...
"Have you upgraded the firmware on the minimosd? If you have upgraded to 2.40 on your APM2 you should make sure that the minimosd is using the firmware with mavlink1.0"
Michael, did You mean, that I must install to my PC Arduplane-2.40 (from DIY Drones download section)?
No, in the APM planner there is an option called firmware. From here you can upgrade your firmware on the APM2 board. You should select the appropriate firmware for your airframe.
Oh sorry, yes, there is Arduplane v2.50 and I uploaded it
Now my ARM2 works! I updated firmwares for ARM and OSD and its OK now.Yes. home direction arrow and home distance icon appears to screen when GPS signals founded and locked.
The "problem" is that When MinimOSD boots up and can see no video, than it can't decide between the standards, so it defaults to NTSC. Than you connect, or turn on your cam and as MinimOSD can only change standards on boot, flight data "goes away". So you reset it with the cam working, than it does finds out about your cams standard, and works. Soldier jumper did nothing for me, so i started to look for this in the source code of MinimOSD. I have found this in the code, and fixed it to PAL. It is in ArduCam_Max7456.cpp
No more problems. I can turn my cam on anytime i want now.
Hope it helps. ;)
Thank you for your suggestions, however it does not work :(

As mentioned in the video, get me a solution and I ship a beer (or two) to you!
Please ask me if you need to see anything I haven't covered in the videos.
Does it works if you push reset button on MinimOsd?
(I can't see your vid now. I am on phone.)
I've pressed the reset button a number of times after I've connected the different cameras.
