Re: BlueDV AMBE won't work on J7 or J3

Richard W4JXA
 

Thank you for the response. My service provider is T-Mobile. And The Samsungs that I use j7 and j3 are T-Mobile devices with T-Mobile software on them from the factory I'm wondering if that's the problem?

OTG works very well but can't connect to AMBE server using Samsung J7 nor J3.

LG 90 and two Alcatel tablets do connect to AMBE server. However I have not gotten the Alcatel to work on OTG. Also screen fit on 7 and 8 inch tablets was better before the update.
Thank you David for the OTG addition!!

the issue has nothing to do with brandmeister because the program Bluedv does not detect the dongle even though the com driver appears on the system 
the blueDVambeserver detects the ambe and works perfectly everything has happened after the big update of windows 1800 yesterday

I'm running BlueDV and using ThumbDV USB-dongle in my Crosslink Node. Attached is a screenshot of the configuration, I hope this can help in your trouble shooting.

My link connects the BrandMeister channel 24499 to the Zello channel 'OH3NFC Crosslink' and to IRN channel 'OH3NFC - Finnish Hub' and the EchoLink node OH3NFC-L. I got it up and running this week. BTW, PTT-control is done without VOX, com0com and hub4com is used instead.

Re: Not recognised.

 

Yes, they are tested before shipping. Current product runs at 460k8 Baud. The original units ran at 230k4 so there is an app setting for baud rate.

Hi,

I just received a thumbdv and tried to set it up. I plug in into a Windows 10 desktop. It appears as a serial port on COM4 with a baud rate of 9600. I run BlueDV, it doesn't see the stick. I go into device manager and change the baud rate of the port to match BlueDV. Still doesn't see the stick. I try a Windows 10 Laptop. Same story. I try a Mac, buster doesn't see the stick. Does NW Digital test these things before they send them out? Is there something obvious I am missing?

I had the same problem with a ThumbDV stick in a Flex 6500. Wouldn’t work. Determined the problem was lack of solid 5V to power the stick. Fixed by using a powered USB hub. This might be a problem on other platforms.

When you plug in the ThumbDV it should appear as a new serial port under Device Manager, note which COM port it is on, and remember new ThumbDV™ are at 460800 baud (older models are at 230400). There is a very simple test program for verifying operation under Windows.  It can be found at https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/files/  — it is called ThumbTest.exe
