Re: Thumbdv problems

Try loading unzip program, if missing. Then CDM v2.12.26 WHQL Certified.zip. run the CDM file.  That should resolve​ the Win 10 problem. Follow the rest on the setup stuff ... Good luck.

I have passed my NW digital Thumbdv dongle on to an amateur in Wales and he is having real problems with installation with windows 10

I have only used it with a mac and buster plus an earlier version of windows 7.

He has windows 10 and when he puts the dongle in it makes a dong noise and windows pops up with trying to find drivers and will come back with a solution, it doesnt of course. He tells me he has loaded the drivers, whats strange is if he tries to run the software without the dongle, the software tries to run but of course it does not as there is no dongle in. When plugging the dongle in, nothing apart from windows trying to find a solution.

When i used it with windows 7 i just installed the FTDI driver, restarted and then installed the dongle, then ran the windv software and it worked.

Is there either an easy step by step guide for a beginner or someone near him in wales who could talk him through it.

His call sign is GW0FJQ and he lives in a place called GELLI RHONDDA Gelli, PENTRE CF41 7TW Wales (he can be found on QRZ)

He is pulling his hair out and has emailed NW digital, with no answer.

I really want it to work for him, i passed it on for a bargain price but if it doesnt work i'll just buy it back but he really wants to try Dstar this way.

I can send any member his email address but its not appropriate to enclose it on here.



BlueDV for Windows supports ThumbDV DV3000U

 

Hi All,

I created a pre beta of BlueDV for Windows that supports the ThumbDV DV3000U. It is an experimental version. Please let me know if you find any issues.
You can download this PRE BETA version at: http://software.pa7lim.nl/BlueDV/BETA/Windows/
It now supports only DSTAR but I am also working on DMR.

Will ThumbDV replace PiDV?

kyle@...
 

I was about to purchase a PiDV but noticed they are currently out of stock (Jun 15, 2017).
Will NW Digital continue to produce the PiDV (if so, any estimate on availability?)?

Or is ThumbDV the sole successor (I hope not as both products have their place)?


Re: Will ThumbDV replace PiDV?

 

Kyle,

place an order for aPiDV. I have a couple in reserve.

Buster v1.2 in App Review

Jeremy McDermond <mcdermj@...>
 

I just wanted to give folks a quick heads up.

Buster version 1.2 is now in review by Apple.  They've been fairly quick about things the last few times I've submitted, so you may see something as early as tomorrow.

There aren't a lot of changes right now, but there was a key one that I wanted to push out the door sooner rather than later.

Here are the changes:

*  Bug fix for the Audio Preferences panel where you sometimes couldn't properly select a device (Thanks to Donald Hays).

*  Backed off on the minimum OS requirement.  I put it at Sierra the last time around because I assumed everyone would be there.  Apparently there are some folks that haven't upgraded yet, and there's no real technical reason not to allow El Capitan, so that's been relaxed a bit.  The new minimum version is OSX 10.11.

*  Most importantly, Buster now queries the reflector lists from ar-dns.net on startup.  I will reach out to ar-dns.net and download the .plist files automatically. It will then merge them in with the bundled lists in the executable.  This way if there's updated information on a reflector, it will overwrite the built-in lists. But, if you've hand added something to them (which may or may not function right because of code signing), you won't lose that in the process.  Also, if you can't get to ar-dns.net for some reason, the built-in lists will at least give you some sort of backup.  This system help me in that I don't have to worry about releasing an executable just to update the reflector lists, and you can now get the freshest information just by restarting Buster.  Note this is probably stage 1 of this project, and John and I are working on developing protocols to make this a little bit more live.

I've also revamped my website a bit since the hardware that was running it crashed hard.  I decided that I really just needed to pay the money and outsource it because I don't want to *have* to be a sysadmin, and I'm certainly not a web developer.  So, you can check out https://www.nh6z.net if you have a chance.  There's a short page there on Buster and I'm going to try to be adding more content about my various projects.

Thanks for everyone's patience and support, and hopefully you enjoy this update.

Jeremy,
Thank you for the new Buster update! It appeared as an available update today on both my iMac and my MacBook Air. It installed and runs perfectly. Here at home I run ambeserver on a Raspberry Pi so that my ThumbDV (ambe) will be available to me on both computers. It works great!

Thanks again for producing Buster!

What is the operating current of the thumbDV dongle?

Ko Seokki
 

It does not work on some tablet PCs.

Can I use a USB hub with external power?

Micro USB - OTG - ThumbDV dongle Can this be a problem?
 
The existing tablet was not used in USB 2.0 B type - OTG,
 
The tablet I was using was available on the USB 3.0 C type -OTG.
 
Is USB speed a problem? Is USB current a problem?


Re: What is the operating current of the thumbDV dongle?

 

Idle Current is ~100mA
Encode/Decode typically peaks at 150mA

We have had issues with inadequate Power Supplies causing the ThumbDV to reset.
