Hi

3100 is a known issue and has been reported for around 6 months.
This is a master issue and not your hardware or setup.
I would recommend not using the UK master or USA masters and the issue should stop

Also when you move Talk Groups always do a 4000 Group Call disconnect
Set a channel up for 4000 and add 4000 to your contact list as Group Call
When you want to move to a new Talk Group. Turn to channel 4000 and key up. You should get a voice back saying disconnected.
Now go to new TG and Key up.

Hope this helps

Understood. And this software and AMBE2 Codec connects with someone's network, (You still didn't say which network) using the HB or home-brew protocol which was designed for repeaters and hotspots.

Looks like you have cross posted to more than one list? I have two messages from you already?

Don't care how fast your laptop is or if your ThumbDV is old or new...

OK, so it's helpful to know what master and network you are connected to.

I suspect you misunderstand how PTT or push to talk talk-groups operate?  The first time you transmit, you activate that talk-group but that first transmission is not forwarded to other repeaters (or directly connected clients / hotspots)... The first "transmission" is simply an activation for the talk-group. (Again assuming standard configurations for systems like Brandmeister)... For a period of time (again assuming network and how it's configured) that talk-group is the active talk-group... But it will eventually time out (except when the network treats you as a hot-spot and not a repeater)... Anyhow, this might explain why one transmission works and another appeared to not...  Now, as to switching talk-groups and still hearing 3100... Again understand that PTT on the talk-group is what triggers the network to feed you with talk-group activity. When you "switch" to 310... nothing changes on the network until you PTT to activate the talk-group.

You can PTT on Talk-group 4000 to clear any active talk-groups (again making an assumption that you are talking about a US based BrandMeister master connection.)

I have no idea about any prompt that says "negative lock".

Linking to D-STAR Repeaters - BLUEDV

Gary Ownsby
 

Hello All,

I've been playing with AMBEServer on a Windows 10 PC and accessing it via a Galaxy Tablet using BLUEDV...a very pleasant combination.

Perhaps I've just missed it but I don't see an option to link to a D-STAR repeater.  Does BLUEDV do this?

Also, I've downloaded the latest version of BLUEDV but the screenshots I see don't appear the same as what I see.  The meter is not at the top right as the screenshots depict.  I had been using the previous version BLUEDV but uninstalled it before installing the latest from the PlayStore.

Thanks.

Re: Android BDVAMBE and AMBEserver on RPI

Jack Mandelman
 

If BDVAMBE is started and then linked to a currently busy reflector, the server will stop.  If I start BDVAMBE and then link to a reflector that is quiet, the server will continue to run.  Then, connecting and disconnecting to reflectors does not affect the state of the server.  Maybe this could provide useful info.

Screen print is attached.

Update:

I ran an upgrade on compass linux and now everything appears to be working well with Android version of BDVAMBE.

Forgot to mention that I have a ThumDV plugged into the PI.


Android BDVAMBE and AMBEserver on RPI

Jack Mandelman
 

I installed the latest compass linux on a RPI 3B, and set up AMBEserver.  BlueDV, running on my Windows 10 PC, accesses AMBEserver and works very well on DSTAR and DMR.  However, BlueDVAMBE on my Android phone doesn't connect with the server.  If I reboot the RPI, BDV connects with the server for a few seconds and then disconnects.  BDV then keeps trying unsuccessfully to reconnect.

I realize that Android BDVAMBE is experimental.  Has anyone been successful connecting  to the AMBEserver using Android BDVAMBE?  Any comments/suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Blued AMBE server

 

If your Windows Tablet has a USB port, you can plug the ThumbDV directly into it and access it from BlueDV.

As far as trying to reach a remote AMBEserver over the Internet.  T-Mobile sometimes does NAT or double NAT so that may be your problem.

You would need to determine the IP address assigned to your cellphone and then see what ddns has as an IP address and compare the two.  You can also see what the network thinks your public IP address is by visiting http://checkip.org 

You might want to check into using a VPN client and service.

Re: BlueDV with DVMEGA AMBE3000 shield on Arduino

John Spitznagel <jspitznagel@...>
 

Sorry for dragging group away from topic...
Problem solved thanks to a quick reply from Guus. If you are using the Arduino/AMBE3000 shield to create a "dongle" for BlueDV:
1. Use the firmware for the DVMEGA Cast setup. It is currently:myDV_105_MEGA2560.cpp.hex  
2. Configure only the "General"/DSTAR/DMR/FUSION blocks and DO NOT check AMBE ThumbDV/DV3000.

That second tip from Guus seemed counter-intuitive but that is the way that combo of hardware/firmware works because the DVMega Cast is a full function radio (in process)

I can't wait to play with the AMBE3006 board!

BlueDV with DVMEGA AMBE3000 shield on Arduino

John Spitznagel <jspitznagel@...>
 

Has anyone successfully configured the subject above set up and used it as a dongle?

Had the most all of parts around and thought I could whip something together...

Following the info on Guus' and David's websites - I seem to get stuck with BlueDV not "finding the firmware" on program restart after doing the basic set up described on David's site.

I have tried both the firmware for BlueDV and the myDV cast firmware for similar hardware with the same result. Xloader loads either firmware with an "OK" message. When I have loaded the myDV Cast firmware which supports a Nextion display, the Nextion seems to function just fine. BlueDV remains clueless.

Have an email in to Guus, but was hoping David might see this on this forum.

True enlightenment did not come from navel gazing(RTFM)...
