Re: thumbdv and rasberry pi 2

 

To link you want to put REF001CL in the UR field. Once linked switch back to CQCQCQ.

at the moment it is trying REF001CL but it not connected yet but it will to REF035CL And i heard some one shout out on there i will leave it on that link and see if i hear more

Thanks John





Re: thumbdv and rasberry pi 2

 

I gave you a call there, but you had disconnected. REF001 has a has a habit of going offline from time to time. REF030C is pretty active.

Most reflectors have a dashboard such as ref030.dstargateway.org so you can see who is linked.

Jim;


    thanks for getting this working ... I'll be playing around with your image in the next few days. I'm downloading it as I type. It appears to be on a slow connection as it's showing 43mins remaining. No worries there as long as it completes I'm good with that.


    I run my Thumb DV on my PC;  Windows 7 - works perfectly with WinDV Node -


 looking forward to testing it on the Pi -I have a spare one at the moment, as I upgraded my DV Mega hotspot to a Pi3.

I'll be sure and followup with my results ...


thanks 73's

Not sure if it's related but 1C reflector has been VERY problematic these last few days it had dropped link more than 20x yesterday, other operators confirming the troubles. 

   My dv mega hotspot reconnects/links automatically, but my winDV node with ThumbDV requires a manual connect. 

   Just an FYI

Jim <g7icd.jim@...>
 

My next question to the group would be how and what software do i need to get a pc xp or win7 to connect to the pi using dummyrepeateri have the dummy reptaer installed on xp pro at moment

i thought it was the dv3000 network and the network setting i had to change ?

i maybe missing somthing i neede to install on the pi2


cheers jim



Re: thumbdv and rasberry pi 2

 

You should be able to select NETWORK and the IP address and PORT of your AMBEserver.  No additional software (beyond AMBEserveer) required.

Re: thumbdv and rasberry pi 2

 

Darren Storer says that the REF001 address should always be referenced by its domain name ref001.dstargateway.org  (which means it may change physical IP address from time to time).

Edit DPlus_Hosts.txt and comment out or replace the old REF001 and replace it.

# DPlus_Hosts.txt
#
# The format of this file is the name of the reflector/gateway followed by its
# IP address.
#

#REF001 192.3.202.54

On Compass Linux the file is located in /usr/share/opendv

You might want to do this for all of the REFxxx reflectors.

Updating DPlus_Hosts.txt to use REFxxx DNS entries

 

Anything that uses ircddbgateway

Here is a little procedure to change all IP based REFxxx references to use their DNS name instead. (For Compass Linux location for DPlus_Hosts.txt file) == watch for line wrap in email

cd /usr/share/opendv
sudo cp DPlus_Hosts.txt DPlus_Hosts.txt.old
sudo sed 's/^REF\([0-9]\+\)[[:space:]][^a-zA-Z]*$/REF\1\tref\1.dstargateway.org/' <DPlus_Hosts.txt >DPlus_Hosts.txt.new
diff DPlus_Hosts.txt DPlus_Hosts.txt.new   # Shows the changes
sudo mv DPlus_Hosts.txt.new DPlus_Hosts.txt


Restart ircddbgateway/ircddbgatewayd, e.g. for the daemon

sudo systemctl restart ircddbgatewayd.service

I read some were that you can but dummyrepeater into tx via pin 3 to grn via a 220k resister ?

if thats right what i do you set the the controller section too ?

my project is all starting to comming together now

cheers jim



Re: tx dummyrepeater

Jim <g7icd.jim@...>
 

i found the post and tryed it yesterday i connected a wire to pin 3 but dummy repeater stopped working i have to reindtall the back up image now today i looked and i am a bit lossed

some images of the GPIO are 1 2 3 on bottom row or 1 3 5 on bottom row i used the 1st one 1 2 3 and it didn't work but do not want to try again until i can validate which pin is pin 3

cheers jim

This page has a good picture of the Raspberry Pi GPIO pinout.

http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/06/simple-guide-to-the-rpi-gpio-header-and-pins/

The pins are definitely 1,3,5,7... in a row.
