I want to run BlueDV AMBE Server on Debian.

js3cop@...
 

I want to run BlueDV AMBE Server on Debian. I operate the reflector and the BlueDV AMBE Server with two raspberries pi. I want to operate these two with one Debian Server. Is this difficult for me? Today I installed the reflector on the Debian Server. After that I can only open various ports to Debian. However, I would like to set up BlueDV AMBE Server on this server. Is this difficult? If BlueDV AMBE works only on raspberry pi, or if the operation becomes unstable, is it better to move the raspberry pi OS virtually on Debian? However, I think that this plan is difficult because the OS of raspberry pi with BlueDV AMBE Server built in is available only with img. Is there a good idea?

The updated version of Buster showed up for me this morning in the AppStore update. I'm able to connect to XLX004 reflector now.

Thanks Anna!

I wrote the code earlier this evening and did some light testing to make sure it at least pretended to link to the XLX reflectors, and it seemed to work although I didn’t find one with any audio to listen to.

This version is 1.2.2 and is pushed up to the App Store for approval.  As soon as Apple approves, it’ll be marked for availability.

Incidentally, for those wondering why I don’t distribute this off of my own website, here’s the answer:

Buster includes geolocation and mapping functionality.  The “Location” field on your display is actually derived from any DPRS information carried with the connection.  In addition you should be able to click on that location to reveal a popup that contains a small map of where that location actually is.  Again, derived from the DPRS information from that transition.

To be able to use the Apple mapping and geolocation APIs, you have to distribute your app on the App Store and sandbox it.  Otherwise your app cannot connect to the proper services to make it work.  That’s why I do this and why it sometimes takes a while to get things reviewed and put on the store.

Also note that it appears as though opendstar.org is having some issues.  This causes Buster to not be able to get the reflector list and drop all the REF reflectors.  Once Robin fixes this, it should start working again.

BlueDV AMBE Audio Issue - display flashes between Listening & RX

Mike G4GOU
 

I am connecting BlueDV Ambe version 1.0.48 to my Ambe Server (with DVstick 30) remotely over the internet. 

This works well and without any issues on my Huawei P10. I also have an Inrico T320  (Quad core - MTK6737  Android 7.0 1Gb+8Gb ram) but when I run the application it connects to the Ambe server and connects to a reflector. However as soon as it receives any audio the display repeatedly flashes between Listening & RX. with a short beep over the received audio. When on transmit it is also slow at responding and exhibits similar issues with the audio,

I have also heard other users having success with a Samsung Note4, Nexus7 & Samsung S5 but with a RT4, Samsung S4 mini & Samsung Tablet the same issue with the audio is observed.

Does anyone know of a solution or of any PoC devices which it has been known to work?

At startup time, the reflector protocol drivers load up a properties list (plist) file of what reflectors they able to handle connections to. That list is made up of an internal list that’s shipped with Buster, and a live-downloaded list from ar-dns.net. They’re merged, with the ar-dns.net entries taking precedence.

Right now, Buster only uses the “DExtra Reflectors” list from ar-dns.net. That won’t include any of the XLX reflectors. There’s no real reason that I know of that would prevent Buster connecting, but it just doesn’t know about them. It was written before they existed.

You can hack Buster by adding an XLX reflector to the DExtraReflectors.plist XML file inside of /Applications/Buster.app. Anything else would require an update from me. The easiest thing would be for John to make the XLX reflectors available as a plist file as well, and then I can add a couple of lines to import it.

Running Buster on an iMac late 2015. Works fine.

Friends wanted me to connect to an experimental reflector XLX003-R, but Buster could not link to it. The others were all on Windows machines. Any idea what might be the issue for this one? See this link. The top 4 were hams with whom I was trying to connect.

At startup time, the reflector protocol drivers load up a properties list (plist) file of what reflectors they able to handle connections to. That list is made up of an internal list that’s shipped with Buster, and a live-downloaded list from ar-dns.net. They’re merged, with the ar-dns.net entries taking precedence.

Right now, Buster only uses the “DExtra Reflectors” list from ar-dns.net. That won’t include any of the XLX reflectors. There’s no real reason that I know of that would prevent Buster connecting, but it just doesn’t know about them. It was written before they existed.

You can hack Buster by adding an XLX reflector to the DExtraReflectors.plist XML file inside of /Applications/Buster.app. Anything else would require an update from me. The easiest thing would be for John to make the XLX reflectors available as a plist file as well, and then I can add a couple of lines to import it.

Running Buster on an iMac late 2015. Works fine.

Friends wanted me to connect to an experimental reflector XLX003-R, but Buster could not link to it. The others were all on Windows machines. Any idea what might be the issue for this one? See this link. The top 4 were hams with whom I was trying to connect.

Re: XLX003 Reflector

 

It can generate plist files for Buster, perhaps Anna will fill in details.

John,

Thanks for the prompt feedback.  I’m pretty technical, but you’re leaving me deep in the weeds with this link !!

Are you suggesting I get into the Buster software and textedit the code to accommodate the XLX reflectors?  Not sure what I should do here.  Tampering with the Buster code seems hazardous.
