Hi Dev,

as you remember before you compile (with make and make install) you had edit the ambeserver.c file with a editor (as root) to change in it the baudrate ( maybe you have), on one of the following line you can also change the port. Change them also and the baudrate and compile again ( with make and make install)

I already have a Raspbery Pi 3B+ running AMBE Server and it has its own hostname and IP address which can be accessed from anywhere on the planet.

This also makes DMR and DSTAR accessible from anywhere.

Re: ThumbDV / ambed / AMBEServer reliability on Raspberry Pi 2 ?

Santu OTTAVI (TK1BI)
 

Hi,

Le 17/01/2019 à 18:09, John D Hays - K7VE a écrit :
As far as Raspberry Pi in general, many of these issues are power supply related, both voltage (there is a drop through many leads and current output.   I would review my power supply first.

Yes, I'm aware of power supply problems. I usually use commercial 5V power supplies, or DC-DC converters from 12V. Here, it's just a test setup. And in order to avoid power problems, I'm using two official Rspberry Foundation power supplies, with their attached power cord.

About USB cords, I really understood that when I bought a tiny USB voltmeter/ammeter on a famous Chines marketplace. This clearly shows USB cords are not equal. And even "branded" cords have very thin copper gauge, which generates huge voltage drops. I usually buy my USB cords from the brand "Aukey", which has serious 20AWG wires.

Then, it's not a power supply problem, and it's not a cord problem. And, as far as ambed and AMBEserver are two completely different software, I don't think it's a software problem.

I did not get much answer on the XLX forum. It seems several people are using second hand PCs. Anyway, as I want to connect it in my 42U rack in my data center housing, two PCs would take too much room. I'd like to install the two AMBE transcoders in a rackable 1U cabinet. That's why I'm trying to use them with mini-machines such as RPis

--
I've just connected the two ThumbDVs through powered USB hubs. Let's see what happens ;-)

If it happens again, I'll try to find some error in the logs, which would allow me to track the problem more seriously than waiting for a few hours, and listening if audio is scrambled or not...
