Re: AMBE server multiple connections

 

You can run multiple instances of AMBEserver on a computer each with it's own ThumbDV™ and UDP port.

Hi Derek,

AMBEserver only supports one client at a time.  It is simply a mechanism to make the serial (USB) connection to an AMBE3000 device available on a UDP port.

The server can be shared by ending one client and starting another.  It doesn't do any multiplexing and the DVSI AMBE 3000 Chip only has one pipeline.

I am making an assumption here.

The whole point of using AMBE server rather than connecting directly via USB to the stick is so that more than one connection can use the AMBE server?

However when I try to connect connect BlueDVambe and DVswitch the results are "Interesting" to say the least.

I am making another assumption here, would setting up a second service to the dongle on a different port allow this to work.

Derek - there is another reasons, which covers my personal case. I personally have more than one computer that I work on, so using AMBE server I am able to launch Buster where ever I happen to be working. I've also exposed AMBEsever to the outside world, so I can even launch it when using my laptop somewhere remote.

Re: AMBE server multiple connections

 

Yes, that would work.

Thanks John for the clarification.

But I could have 2 dongles running as servers on the same Pi but offering up it's service on different port?

I am running ThumDV on usb exteder without power, it is working on windows 10 
i am also using ThumbDV on Buster on Mac it is working fine


Re: #DVMegaStick 30 #dvmegastick

 

The ThumbDV and PiDV (discontinued) are manufactured by NW Digital Radio (This list is to support NW Digital Radio products).   DVStick and other 3rd party products have their own support mechanisms.

Yes same Dongle
if it works it is great
as the App Store is silent about the DVMEGA  stock 30 in their list it only confirms ThumbDV and PiDV over the network
need to update  by the author

Tks and regards

Hello
i want to know whether The DVMegaStick 30 will work with 
Buster Software.  

ThumbDV works nicely with Buster and did lot of QSO.

Good to hear. You can sign up for a free dynamic DNS service and then use your DNS name which will follow your ip address. Look at ddns.net or similar.

I am sorry this has taken so much time, but I have been in various fights with Apple over Buster for the past few months.

Finally, Buster 1.2.9 has been released to the app store.  This should work better on Catalina for folks.  I've done some changes to the serial port handling that seem to clear up the errors.

I'd like to thank Rob Huston, WD8NAQ, for his contributions to trying to make sure DPlus reflectors show up more reliably.  We made some changes in the code and hopefully those should start showing up more quickly during some error conditions.  Please wait around 10 seconds after launching buster for things to settle before trying to link to DPlus reflectors.

There are also a couple of changes initiated by Apple that you should be aware of.

Apple rejected the app because the icon didn't show up well in Dark Mode.  The icon has been slightly redesigned to accommodate this.

More significantly, Apple rejected Buster because the close box on the main window didn't function (it's been that way for five years now).  This was by design, because the app doesn't make a lot of sense without the main window active (you could always hide it if you didn't want to see it).  Apparently this is against the App Store rules.  I have had to implement the ability to close the main window in Buster.  I do not suggest you use it.  The window has been renamed "Control" and you can get it back by selecting the "Control" entry in the "Windows" menu.  This also should be command-0.  The big missing feature here is that when you close the window, you will lose your QSO log completely, including any ongoing transmissions that may be in progress.  The window will begin to work correctly upon the next transmission.  To remember the QSO log would be a larger task that I wanted to bite off right now with how things are working, and I wanted to get out a release soon to try to solve some of the Catalina issues for folks (I know, right as Big Sur is going to be released...).

Thanks for your patience and I hope you enjoy the updates.
