There is a new C++ rewrite of dsd, the digital speech decoder, that can decode P25, DMR, D-Star etc. It's called dsdcc ( https://github.com/f4exb/dsdcc ) It also supports doing the decoding with a AMBE hardware dongle.

Wondering if anyone has tried it? I recently tried giving it a go on a Raspberry Pi 2 (not sure that will have enough snot), but ran into endless problems with dsdcc and its output to the pi sound. I get "Error writing to output" when when I try and tell it to use-o ( Audio output device) hw:0,0 .  Same error after I install alsa-oss and do the modprobe to enable /dev/dsp.

The prior version of dsd supports port audio, this one doesn't appear to.

  -v <num>      Frame information Verbosity

Input/Output options:
  -i <device>   Audio input device (default is /dev/audio, - for piped stdin)
  -o <device>   Audio output device (default is /dev/audio, - for stdout)
  -g <num>      Audio output gain (default = 0 = auto, disable = -1)
  -U <num>      Audio output upsampling
                0: no upsampling (8k) default
                6: normal upsampling to 48k
                7: 7x upsampling to trade audio drops against bad audio quality
  -n            Do not send synthesized speech to audio output device
  -L <filename> Log messages to file with file name <filename>. Default is stderr
                If file name is invalid messages will go to stderr
  -D <device>   Use DVSI AMBE3000 based device for AMBE decoding (e.g. ThumbDV)
                You must have compiled with serialDV support (see Readme.md)
                Device name is the corresponding TTY USB device e.g /dev/ttyUSB0
