    I operated just fine on Lightbridge for months. I owned it from the beginning. Fantastic range. Decent Video quality.

    Then I had a problem with not getting video one day, so I updated software on everything. Long story short, turned out to be one end of the hdmi cable wasn't completely plugged in.

    So, now since the updates (I did the one last week in addition to the earlier one), I can't get more than a few hundred feet away without picture breakup. 1,500 feet max, even then I lose picture completely. Sometimes it even makes the app force close.

    What am I doing wrong?
    Software is the only thing that changed and I was going as far as I could see the p2 before, with no issues.
