Re: thumbdv and rasberry pi 2


Darren Storer says that the REF001 address should always be referenced by its domain name  (which means it may change physical IP address from time to time).

Edit DPlus_Hosts.txt and comment out or replace the old REF001 and replace it.

# DPlus_Hosts.txt
# The format of this file is the name of the reflector/gateway followed by its
# IP address.


On Compass Linux the file is located in /usr/share/opendv

You might want to do this for all of the REFxxx reflectors.

Not sure if it's related but 1C reflector has been VERY problematic these last few days it had dropped link more than 20x yesterday, other operators confirming the troubles. 

   My dv mega hotspot reconnects/links automatically, but my winDV node with ThumbDV requires a manual connect. 

   Just an FYI

    thanks for getting this working ... I'll be playing around with your image in the next few days. I'm downloading it as I type. It appears to be on a slow connection as it's showing 43mins remaining. No worries there as long as it completes I'm good with that.

    I run my Thumb DV on my PC;  Windows 7 - works perfectly with WinDV Node -

 looking forward to testing it on the Pi -I have a spare one at the moment, as I upgraded my DV Mega hotspot to a Pi3.

I'll be sure and followup with my results ...

thanks 73's
