I had no problems setting it up on my pi zero on Compass. Are you getting any sort of error message?

Hi,

its no need to install a driver, all is in Kernal.

IMPORTANT!!!!

I saw a lot of Problems where the Stick is not found on /dev/ttyUSB0

PLEASE check the goups file with sudo nano /etc/group

if the dailout group constst of your user

check the line

dialout:x:20:stefan

(in my case stefan is the user who runs ambe server, if he is not in this line by dailout the communication with the stick is not given by default.

( if nano as a text editor is not installed to view the /etc/group file install if before with sudo apt-get install nano

to start on comand line use for DV30 Stck

AMBEserver -d -s 460800 -p 2460 -i /dev/ttyUSB0

Hi Stefan,

Did you try to install two DV30Stick? Did you also install the FTDI driver.

where Hi ,

DV30 runns perfect on AMBE Server.

Dont use Compass Linux use a standart Raspian Image, after installation use AMBE Server installation from github source

https://github.com/marrold/AMBEServer

its very easy to compile

Google youtube shows how easy it is, Have running it here since 1 year without no problems

BTW,  ThumbDV™ is the only AMBE-3000 USB device from NW Digital Radio.  The test programs for it are not guaranteed to work with other manufacturers' products, nor do we provide advice on their use.

Should work. Compass Linux is deprecated, the UDRC/DRAWS™ driver support is now in Raspbian Buster.

Thanks Stefsan - I just wanted to know what I was trying was feasible.  I have tried it on a Pi Rasbian image, a Compass image and a Debian laptop, all yield this same result -

/dev/ttyUSB0 exists in each case. 

root@pi:/usr/lib/systemd/system# /usr/sbin/AMBEserver -p 2460 -i /dev/ttyUSB0
AMBEserver: Starting...
AMBEserver: Opened serial port /dev/ttyUSB0 at 230400 bps.
AMBEserver: Couldn't find start byte in serial data
AMBEserver: error receiving response to reset
AMBEserver: Could not initialize the DV3K!


Also tried with 460800

root@pi:/usr/lib/systemd/system# /usr/sbin/AMBEserver -p 2460 -i /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 460800

I only have Fusion working at this point. Questions on DMR Brandmeister:

Do I need my DMR ID in both Hotspot and Simple?
What should QRG be set to?
What should Brandmeister password be? It is passw0rd now.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you Different David :)
Yes, I had discovered that, but I couldn't confirm that i was connected to the correct TG -if any at all. If you choose from the list, the TG# appears when you 'transmit'. I checked all of the files in the BlueDV folder in Documents, but none of those files contain TG info.

You should be able to type directly into that dropdown box the TG number you want.

From there it will be cached and from that point on you can select it with the drop down.

Hello David.
Firstly, thank you for your continuing efforts on the BlueDV project, it is most appreciated.
I do have a question. Could you point me to the DMR TG (Talkgroup) configuration file? I need to make an entry as the one I am trying to connect to does not appear in the drop-down list box.

Thanks in advance.
