Node-RED dashboard on Cerbo GX Touch 50?

@Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager)

Is it possible to launch and display the Node-RED dashboard, directly on the Cerbo GX - Touch 50 display?

Like swiping left and right between different default Venus OS screen layouts, could the Node-RED dashboard perhaps be accessible this way, as a fourth screen layout?

Thanks, Anton

No Output nodes available on multiplus

Hi! Just started a new Node red system on a Cerbo with a Multiplus -II 3000.

I've used both Node red and Multiplus-II before but with this installation its fighting back.

I can read input nodes from the multiples just fine, but when I try to use an output node on it, there's is none. The Solar charge output node works just fine.

What am I missing? The firmware is 481 (Newest is 489)

Cerbo GX and Node-RED via Venus OS Large: dashboard functions?

Dear Victron-users,

I recently bought a Cerbo GX with touchscreen and after a few days of tweaking I decided I want more, for example a custom dashboard. Installing Venus OS Large was the best solution I was told so I installed it on the Cerbo and activated Node-RED. Via the URL and the specific port I can access Node-Red and put instances on the grid with connections etc. But..... that's where it stops for me ;-). I cannot create a custom dashboard. On all the YouTube films I watched, I see in the left column a submenu "dashboard" with for example gauges etc. but I don't see this menu and when I go to URL/ui I get a error there isn't a GUI. Can someone help me a little bit forward?

Kind regards,

Pim

Cerbo GX node red install

I would like some clarity please before I continue.

Which file do I use to do a manual firmware update, seems like this is not clearly stated in an easily accessible place. (I did look, maybe I am just unlucky in finding it.)

When one does a manual update what happens to all your settings? Do you require a settings backup before the update and then a restore of just the settings? If so then just to be clear how does one do this.
