make sure to type "&" after the command you want to run. This makes it run in the background. So you would need to type "AMBEServer &" in the terminal without the quotes to make it run after you close the terminal. Do not put the quotations. just type the command that is inside the quotations. 

Type this into the Terminal:

AMBEServer &

This should run the application in the background.. You can check that it is running using:

ps aux | grep AMBEServer


You only need the & symbol if you wish to run the process in the background. regardless of if you close the terminal window or not. I hope this helps!

I tried using it plugged into my phone, but the battery drain was prohibitive. So I installed AMBEServer on a raspberry pi, punched a hole in my firewall, and set up a dynamic DNS for it. BlueDV AMBE connects to the ThumbDV, which is plugged into the pi through a powered USB hub. 

 

Works perfectly.

Re: Original ThumbDV and AMBED

Scott Weis (KB2EAR)
 

I have now confirmed that it does indeed work.

 

Two changes need to be made. First the Product Description needs to be reflashed to read any of the following “ThumbDV" or "DVstick-30" or "USB-3000".  Any of which work fine. I used a program call FT_PROG. https://www.ftdichip.com/Support/Utilities.htm?#FT_PROG

 

 

Second, in the file cusb3000interface.cpp change line    int baudrate = 460800;   to int baudrate = 230400;   Then recompile.

 

And as long as you have 2 devices, or at least 2 channels that it recognizes it works just fine. (I used an AMBE3003 device for the second one.) The software will not initialize with only one. You also can’t have a new 460800 baud and an old 240400 baud ThumbDV on the same system.

 

Hope that helps anyone else going down this road.

 

73,

Scott KB2EAR

I am not sure if it will work, that is a question for the xlxd group.

 

But besides the baud rate the ThumbDV needs to be programmed with an identifier that the ambed server knows.

Dummyrepeater Issue

Mike Besemer - WM4B
 

Hello all,

Still having issues with getting my PiDV up and running.  Have moved to a Pi 3B+ and now have AMBEserver and ircddbgateway installed and running.  I am using /dev/ttyS0 for the PiDV.  (Both installed from Synaptic Package Manager).  Dummyrepeater was also installed from Synaptic.

When I start AMBEserver, I get a message that it is listening on Port 2460. I also see traffic on ircddbgateway, so I feel confident that both are working.

Dummyrepeater starts normally, but I think there is a configuration issue.  I have a PiDV installed on the Pi 3B+ GPIO pins.

When I go to configure it, as I understand it, under Dongle, I should select DV Serial, but when I do that, dummyrepeater cannot find the dongle.  If I select Network’ and enter the local IP of the Pi, then the dongle is found and I can transmit.  However, when I connect to a reflector, all I get bad is R2D2.  Same for the Echo reflector.

$ sudo python AMBEtest2.py produces:

D

8

N

1

False

False

False

Any pointers?

Hi K7VE,
Thank you very much for your answer.
I have one USB-3000 stick. I'll test it on my RaspberryPi. I'll share the results. I read that compass linux is the preferred dist. for AMBEserver. I'll try to  setup it.

Hi John,

I changed the baud rate to 230400. Previous error gone

pi@compass:~ $ sudo AMBEserver -i /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 230400 -d
AMBEserver: Starting...
AMBEserver: Opened serial port /dev/ttyUSB0 at 230400 bps.

But there is a strange behavior. You can see at attached picture.

Yes. USB-3000 is located at USB0
pi@compass:~ $ ls /dev/ttyU*
/dev/ttyUSB0
pi@compass:~ $


and the result after sudo AMBEserver -i /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 460800 -d command.

pi@compass:~ $ sudo AMBEserver -i /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 460800 -d
AMBEserver: Starting...

Change the baudrate (-s) if it is not 460800 for your device.

There are also python test scripts you use to test, in the github

Like most Unix/Linux commands there is an -h flag for listing the optional flags
