When I start the Recorder tool with this command:
cd /usr/local/driveworks/tools/capture
./recorder-tui OR <rig_directory> [–bbr]

i get the error "fail to run rig legacy converter. What does it excatly mean? I tried it with several rig-files.

Hi, @eunow
Please provide the complete command (with the rig file) and its output for our analysis and reproducing. Thanks.

./recorder-tui /home/nvidia/rig/rig.json

Error: fail to run rig legacy converter.

Please also provide the rig file so we can reproduce the issue here. Thanks.

Dear @eunow,
It looks like the rig file is not complete. Could you share the other rig files too used in the shared rig.json

Dear @eunow,
I could reproduce the issue on my machine. It seems the issue is at line 136 in rig-legacy-converter python script. You may print sensor object value at line 136 in tools/capture/scripts/rig-legacy-converter It is checking for protocol parameter in the sensor object which is failing when you use json-merge based Json files. Could you use a single Json file similar to configs/rwd/hyperion7_1/release.json instead of multiple Json files.

Thank you, I will try!

Dear @SivaRamaKrishnaNV,
I used a single json file. This time I get the following error:

And all error logs are empty.

Please make sure the below sample_radar_replay sample work with the settings in your rig file first.

The radar_replay_sample works fine with this rig-file.

Could you share your sample_radar_replay command and its output for our reference? Thanks.

This is the command and output on my host-pc with recorded radar data and playback with can-utils.

Before looking into this log, may I know if sample_radar_replay also works with the relevant settings on your target system?

Yes, sample_radar_replay works properly.

Please try with recorder (/usr/local/driveworks/doc/nvsdk_html/dwx_recorder_textui_tool.html) first and see if it works. Thanks.
