Re: ambeserver on a Raspberry Pi stops after 30 seconds #ambeserver

 

This is usually a user/group/permission problem.

The Compass Linux images are older and mostly deprecated.  They can work, but I generally start with a newer Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian - Buster) version.  I then follow  https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki/1520#Quick-Build-on-Linux the source, support, and test programs can also be found at  https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/files  
 

AMBEserver is really a pretty simple daemon program.  As long as the environment is right it should work.

Hello around,

think san close this  - just disconnetct the ThumbDV and reconnect them again to the RPi and no it works  - test it just with a connect  from the Blue DV app on my android and it works

Don't know why this is the solution , but .....

Thanks to everybody

Karl

John,

tnx for the reply. I followed the mentioned image from the WIKI - archive.compasslinux.org  (image_2018-12-31-compass-lite.zip) on a RPi 2.

Have't seen an other image....and I am not sure, if I can use the original raspian image?

Hi, you get Problems to Start ambe server demon by open serial Port before.
Check why ttyUSB0 cannot open, maybe open /etc/group with nano or Other editor add dailout with the User who starts ambe Server.

Hello,

I am quit new and has just start to work a little bit with a Raspberry Pi . I nstalled the image according the Wiki to run the ambeserver with an ThumbDV.
So far so good till after approx. 30 sec the server failed - attached the sceenshot of the status-messages.

Maybe someone can give me some hints, where to look for, that teh server is running "longer" than 35 seconds...

Point us to which directions/image you are using.  Some are outdated or missing an element.

Re: BlueDV on an Inrico T320? Or any other network radio

 

You may need a USB device driver such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hu.sztupy.android.usbhostcontroller  -- but hooking directly to a phone may be a power drain as Gwen points out.

Only way I know to do it on an Inrico T320 is to use an external AMBEServer. I don't think the T320 is an OTG device. But I stopped trying to use a ThumbDV connected directly to a phone when I saw my battery charge indicator visibly sinking while it was connected. It draws a LOT of juice, even when just in receive. So I have a Raspberry Pi on my local network, with a powered hub on it and the ThumbDV plugged into the powered hub. That same horrible power draw means a Pi USB port will NOT power the ThumbDV directly. You MUST use a powered hub. (For Pi 3+ and below. I haven't tried it on a 4 with USB-C.)

My Pi has:
AMBEServer installed (NO BUSTER)
A dynamic DNS daemon, so if my local network IP changes, it can update my dynamic DNS address.
A port-forwarded hole in my firewall so I can get at it from outside.

Then configure BlueDV AMBE for the dynamic DNS address instead of the localhost IP address.

Works fine, but I only use it when I want to use my T320 as a backup device. I take it to things like Field Day, or hamfests. The PTT works great for things like Echolink, Teamspeak 3, and Zello, but I don't use Zello because it doesn't play well with others. If you have Zello configured for PTT, even if you stop the app from the apps menu, if you hit the PTT, it'll RESTART Zello, even if you're trying to use the PTT with Teamspeak or Echolink. Freaking annoying, so I stopped using Zello.

I’m using the T320 also, it displays in portrait and does work with the BlueDv to include PTT. To use D-star, DMR and Fusion I have a ThumbDv running on a Raspberry Pi and or Windows Server.

I have the T320 and I use the BlueDV app but I connect to an ambee server.  My amber server is a Raspberry Pi 3 with a ThumbDV.  The PTT does work with it.  I don't quite know what you mean portrait mode.

Hi,

I’m using DVStick 30 USB with the included USB-C to female USB A with my Google Pixel 4xl with no problems.  I’m also using it with my older Surface Pro 3 with no problems.  Good luck and you will enjoy this stick, it’s great.

Ed,

The RPi4 requires the newer Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian).  RPi4 was released June 24, 2019 along with an updated kernel (4.19?) to support it.  The 2018 Compass image would not have that support, and Compass is deprecated by UDRC/DRAWS™ support in Buster kernels.
