Re: Can 6 Digit DMR IDs work with BlueDV & AMBE Servers?? #dmrid, #ambe, # amberserver

Dave Amos <damos54@...>
 

Hi

I, too, have experienced connection problems running BlueDV/ThumbDV.  Make sure your thumb drive comm port is selected under "General" and "AMBE" boxes in the setup window under the "FILE" menu selection.  My ThumbDV drive is on COM36 on my computer (I do a lot of work with USB connected devices so I have some that are clear up in the high 60's).

I do not have a zero in front of my ID number and have had no issues with that.

by the way, I have not received an answer to my question regarding the Wednesday evening Not a Net Gathering.  Is it possible to connect to that net using BlueDV and if so, what is the talk group number I need to use.  Can I access via BM or do I have to select a DMR+ server connection?

73,

Dave, WB7DFV

Good day,

Here are the facts.

1. I have 5 AMBE Servers.
2. I have 2 DMR IDs
3. BlueDV (Android) does not support adding an additional 2 digits to the end of the DMR ID as the DMR ID input field allows only 7 digits.
4. I have applied for additional DMR IDs, but was given five 6 digit repeater IDs.
5. This initially sounded like the perfect solution since I have 5 AMBE Servers and got 5 DMR IDs.
6. The problem is that the 6 digit DMR ID is not seen on Brandmeister's Hoseline when I transmit. This means I have absolutely no transmission being monitored on hoseline if I were to transmit.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong and possibly lead me in the correct direction.

I thank you again for all your contributions.....73 Dev, 9Y4DG

BlueDV Windows crashes with .NET error

Jim - K6JM
 

I'm helping a ham use BlueDV Windows with his ThumbDV on a new-to-him Windows 7 laptop.  I used Teamviewer remotely to update .NET to version 4.7 and to install the latest Beta version of BlueDV Windows.  When I launch it, it crashes with a .NET error that PortName must not be empty.  He is running Win7 64 bit.

I am sure this is a problem with this PC, not BlueDV.  Has anyone else seen this error?

Is there any way I can add either XLX 299 R. XRF 299 R or DCS 299 R to the host files of BlueDV for Android??

Or is there any way of downloading and updating the host files to include any or all of the above reflectors??

Re: #AMBE #ThumbDV toggle problem on #ambe #thumbdv #bluedv

 

Hi bill,

This is not going to work. The ambe feature only works on windows. This because mono has issues with the sound card under Linux.

Re: BlueDV and ThumbDV no DMR

 

RE: "What are the differences and benefits when comparing “IPSC2-MINNESOTA” and “USA-MINNESOTA2” and “IPSC2-USA-MN2”?"

Choose whatever DMR+ server you like.
The fellow with the issue used the UK Video from YouTube
From watching the UK video of BLUEDV setup everything was setup for the UK servers
I was just trying to steer the fellow ham in the direction of USA DMR+ servers.
His issue was not about which server to use be it “IPSC2-MINNESOTA” or“USA-MINNESOTA2”
His issue was he could not connect at all.
That is what I was focusing on.
After posting it to this group I contacted the fellow via his personal email account with my sample edited capture of the setup screen.
So by the time anyone else responded he was already configured and up on the air on DMR.
He sent me a shining email thanking me.
I am not interested in engaging any rhetoric, just wanted to get the fellow up and running simply and smoothly on USA servers not UK servers as
the YouTube video indicated.
I am sure  the fellow will experiment with what servers work best for him at his location.
Anyone who wishes can use my sample setup screen or whichever one gives them a warm and fuzzy feeling and gets them through the night.
Beyond this the matter is closed
