MBus to usb reader

I would like to thank Trystan for sending the Mbus to usb reader, I received it today, do I need to remove the heat pump hat because it is not recognising the reader or is there a specific config.

Hello @Satwelsh the mbus reader serial port is likely to be /dev/ttyUSB0. Try changing the serial port in the emonhub config from /dev/ttyAMA0 to /dev/ttyUSB0, that will hopefully do it.

Spot on instant connection. I will see if it stays connected overnight but it’s looking good so far. I have changed the power supply on the Sontex too from battery to ac but tried the heat pump hat first and still had no connection.
