Now worries, glad you found it.

A little explanation of how this all works may help with your debugging.

ThumbDV™ is an AMBE 3000 chip attached to an FTDI USB to serial chip.  All of the communication into and out of the AMBE chip is serial data, a stream of serial bytes.  If you send it 8kbit encoded audio, it sends back AMBE, if you send it AMBE, it sends back 8kbit encoded audio.

FTDI chip is responsible for sending the serial data back and forth over a pseudo-serial USB port (COMx).

BlueDV and similar programs are responsible for sending and receiving the serial data streams to the ThumbDV over the USB serial port, and control communication to audio input and output to the operating system (Windows in this case), which delivers it to the speakers and receives it from the microphone.

Furthermore, BlueDV can send and receive AMBE over the network to other providers/consumers of AMBE data, such as reflectors, hotspots, and gateways.   Again, BlueDV does the routing to/from the ThumbDV™.

The ThumbDV™ again does none of the work to deliver either audio or AMBE to either the speakers/microphone or network directly.  It only is a serial device attached to a USB com port.

Once you have confirmed that data is going into and coming out of the ThumbDV™ via the ThumbTest.exe, LEDs on the ThumbDV™, and/or other programs, then troubleshooting is in the configuration of your application such as BlueDV, or the operating system such as Windows.

Ensure that network ports are available to the application, and that the FTDI driver is working between the operating system and the ThumbDV™.

Check to see what you have your audio output set to. You will need to exit serial function and select AMBE. You set your audio input and output here.

Bob,
For DMR on BlueDV, you have to connect briefly to TG 4000, then connect to the new talkgroup. 4000 is the "disconnect" group, and it'll remove you from your current talkgroup. This is NOT necessary on D-Star. Just connect to the new reflector.

So if you're on DMR TG 91, enter 4000 in the talkgroup selector, make sure it's set to DMR/G(roup), and key up/down. Then enter the 93 you want to go to and briefly transmit. You should now be on 93 instead of 91. I found this out the hard way -- I tried to just connect to a new talkgroup, and was hearing BOTH, and I think I was only transmitting on the first one...I don't remember if I was transmitting on both too.

So, to recap, on DMR connect to 4000 to disconnect from the current TG before connecting to a new one. On DStar, you don't have to do that. Try that out and see what it does for you. It should work.

To the best of my knowledge, the only thing you transmit is your number. The rest of the data is provided at the receive end from the downloaded databases. In many cases, updating the databases in radios is a pain in the tuchis, whereas updating the databases in BlueDV is as easy as clicking a menu option. In some radios, there is insufficient space to store the entire database, and you either have to pare it down or use aftermarket firmware that removes part of the program to make more room for database entries. That's how it is with the Tytera MD380, at least -- the Travis Goodspeed and later mods to the firmware gained back database room by deleting the Chinese language sections from the code.

So update your databases regularly if you can!

I have D-STAR and DMR working on BlueDV.  However I have a question.  When I transmit on DMR, I do not see any of my data displayed (Call, Name, etc).  The only thing displayed is my DMR number.  Most stations do not see my data either.  However, one station in the US said he saw all my data.  My setup is exactly what has been specified by others on this group.  Is this possibly a database update issue.  I have only been registered on DMR for three days.

Thanks for any comments.

Thank you. Just what I needed. I actually did as you said earliier. Plugged them in and tried both baud rates and if they would not do 460, I marked the V1. 


thanks for the response.
