Re: Original ThumbDV and AMBED

 

Jamie. This is just showing 1 device. Ambed needs at least two channels.

Hi Scott,

I'm confused, your first post already states that its a "ThumbDV" why would you change it again?? I have the same issue with the new InternetLabs DV3k I'm trying to get working. I did change the baud to 230400 and recompiled with no change. Any ideas?

Initializing vocodecs:
Detected 1 USB-FTDI devices
Description : USB-3000   Serial : DA4AIASF (Changed from DV3k to USB-3000)
Codec interfaces initialized successfully : 0 channels available
Initializing controller
AMBEd started and listening on 127.0.0.1

Re: ThumDV to convert p25 phase 1 AMBE frames to pcm audio? #thumbdv

davebelle85@...
 

Ah ok, cool. Thanks for that. So in theory if I can convert the frames from IMBE to AMBE it should work. Great! Thanks. 

Re: ThumDV to convert p25 phase 1 AMBE frames to pcm audio? #thumbdv

 

P25 Phase 1 is IMBE and the ThumbDV™ only does AMBE (in many formats, used by many protocols).

Hey guys

Does the ThumbDV usb support converting P25 Phase 1 to raw audio? The website only mentions Phase II but nothing explicitly says it doesn't support Phase I. I found some sample c++ code which converts from the mbe frames to audio. I'm able to build and run it and it works with it's own samples, but my own mbe frames don't work. I suspect it may be because the sample files are Phase II frames and no one in my area is broadcasting phase II so I can't be sure.

Thanks in advanced

Hi David

I have an anysecu w2 plus / n60 network radio (android v7)

I installed AMBE Bluedv on the N60 and Peanut. They look great!  Dont tell Gus but I prefer it to the CAST.  One problem I have is on AMBEBlueDV I cant get the PTT to map.  Any thoughts on how i can fix this?

Thanks Kev KL4H

Yes – yesterday, BlueDV worked fine for me.  Today, BlueDV for Windows will not start.  Nothing shows up on the screen. 

I found myself wondering if it was do the overnight maintenance update Windows does.  What symptom/issue are you facing?

PS:  WinDV continues to work just fine - I can use WinDV on my PC for DSTAR via WinDV. 

       Thus, it appears to me that some unique file or action that BlueDV engages in is being forbidden by Windows.

Any ideas?

Re: Serial not connected #bluedv #thumbdv

 

Hi Andy,

"Firmware not detected" is a red herring when it comes to ThumbDV™
(and similar AMBE-3000 devices). That error belongs to some hardware
radio devices, but not the ThumbDV™ -- however, it is indicative that
there is a problem. I assume the 46080 baud rate is a typo, as it is
460800 (or 230400 on very old ThumbDVs).

I see you ran ThumbTest.exe at both baud rates. Did you unplug the
ThumbDV™ between the different baud rate tests? Did the LEDs blink on
the ThumbDV™? There are two main hardware components to the success
of the ThumbDV™. First is the FTDI USB to serial chip. Since you are
getting an indication that Windows sees it, then the DVSI chip is
probably working fine. The second is the DVSI AMBE-3000 chip which
does the actual vocoding receiving and sending packets over the serial
interface of the FTDI chip via USB to the computer.

If the AMBE chip fails (unlikely but possible) you would not have
packets going to and from the software on the computer (driver and
application/BlueDV). If you are unable to get a successful run of
ThumbTest.exe and want to send your ThumbDV™ back for evaluation, use
the form at http://nwdigitalradio.com/support

I have not used my ThumbDV in a while. Today I plugged in in and installed the latest version of BlueDV. I set the baud rate in the set-up area tp 46080 and entered my comm port number in the two usual areas where we specify the desired comm port. The comm port I chose matches the number shown in my device manger. I have the top box ticked under AMBE for ThumbDV. Despite all this when I then click on SERIAL nothing happens , the firmware is not detected. I have tried it on a Windows 10PC and a Windows 7 PC.

Re: Serial not connected #bluedv #thumbdv

Frankly, I am confused by this statement below. 

From the beginning, installs of BlueDV have been straightforward (except once when David left a major bug in the release that caused random exceptions - that was a long while ago). Some basic understanding of Windoze devices, D-Star, and DMR was all that was required. 40 minutes first time out (mostly to adjust audio and understand programming) and less than 20 minutes on several installs for friends afterwards, including Win 7, 8, and 10.

The only machine that gave me trouble was a single Win 7 laptop loaded with crapware, pseudo “security” software, bad drivers, malware, and trackers. I asked the owner of that one to do a clean install... he bought a new laptop.
