    Default Driver station Dashboard, not able to select camera

    We installed the 2017 NI Update and the Driver Station, and using it with our 2016 robot to learn from. One problem we have, is that the camera selection drop-down box in the 2017 Dashboard, contains nothing to select. (The 2016 driver station has a list to select from: USB Software, USB Hardware, and IP camera.)

    Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the FIRST forums. Camera Streaming in all 3 software languages was changed quite a bit in 2017 so the 2017 Dashboard will not be fully compatible with your 2016 robot code. Running a 2017 Robot Project which creates the camera should result in you seeing it appear in the dropdown menu.

    423 having similar difficulties through the end of week one although we installed two updates given to us by the FTAs at our first event.
    Is there a location for up-to-date info from National Instruments or Labview ?
    We feel not only blind but cut off from the sources of recent updates.

    If it helps, here is a link to our bitbucket with changes that added two cameras to our 2017 Java robot and Driver Station default Dashboard. (see the March 7th commit) When the students fixed the code, I was out of the room and didn't ask, so I don't know what resources they used to find these specific code fixes.

    https://bitbucket.org/ymcafrc3777/frc-2017-connor/

    And links to both the latest Labview and Update Suite:

    All updates to FIRST provided software (i.e. other than 3rd part libraries such as the CTRE Talon/Pidgin libraries, Kauai NavX libraries, etc.) software updates are announced in the Team Updates (NI Update 2017.2.0 was announced in Team Update 16 between Week 1 and Week 2. CSAs were provided with a hotfix for LabVIEW USB camera streaming issues in the middle of week 1 events but if the camera does not appear in the dropdown at all that is not the same issue as the hotfix (and later 2017.2.0) are intending to fix.
