I may still have an older version around. Aren't they available online in the archived area? I will look when I get back to my PC.

DVmega stick (new to DMR user)

Brian Helm <helmet.head22@...>
 

I'm a new-to-DMR user and have BlueDV installed and working with a DVmega stick.  I am connected to Brandmeister DMR talkgroups and can make contacts just fine now.  I notice that when others speak, I mostly see their name and callsign appear in the software window.  However, when I transmit, I just see my DMR ID.  Is this normal and is there any way to get my call/name to appear?  I've looked at blueDV settings...I've logged into the brandmeister network and looked for settings I have also tried the Update-->Update call database... in blueDV as someone suggested.  I have had my DMR ID for several months.  Any other suggestions?

[Note: DVMega and BlueDV are not products of NW Digital Radio.

BlueDV is a popular application for ThumbDV™ and there are knowledgeable users on this list.  

DVMega questions should go to the manufacturer]

Is what i get happening when i use the instructions above and checking the status of my Combitronics DV30 stick on a VM running Debian with the dongle plugged in at the server itself, how can i sort this ?

Re: How To install AMBESERVER on Raspbian or Debian.

 

Derek,

This should work with compatible AMBE devices from other manufacturers.  We do not provide technical support for other manufacturers, if you run into difficulties, contact the manufacturer.

You will need to stop and disable  ambeserver@ThumbDV (using systemctl)
You will need to see what 'serial' port your device enumerates to, such as /dev/ttyUSB0
You will need to look at the conf files in /etc/opendv and see if one matches your device, e.g. port and speed, with a name matching your device's /dev filename.
You can then start/stop/status/enable/disable using the systemctl command.
The selection of the port number is flexible in the conf file for a variety of reasons, just use what your client is using.

Looking at the instructions, it reads that it is for ThumbDV.

I am using the DVmega version, I assume it will also work?

I also have another question, not sure if this is the place for it but here goes anyway.

The Ambeserver uses port 2460, however when running DVswitch and the Ambeserver together DVswitch uses 2471?
Just curious as to why?

Absolutely brilliant.  Couldn't be easier.


 

The Wiki is updated.


 

A new AMBEserver install process is available at https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/ambeserver-install

Re: How To install AMBESERVER on Raspbian or Debian.

 

/etc/systemd/system 

Is the correct location for user created/installed service files.

Thanks for a great tutorial.

However I do have a question.

In the section about using WinSCP it says to copy the ambeserver@... file to

lib/systemd/system 

However in the following section regarding setting the permissions for the file it points to

/etc/lib/systemd/system

My Rpi 3 with Buster does not have /etc/lib/systemd/system

So where Should the file go?

Re: bringing some transcoding to my xlx reflector?

A pair of dongles can be used on the channel that needs the transcoding, so you need a pair for however many channels you have that do transcoding. 

 

There are some cards out there (not sure about active production) that have 8 AMBE chips on them for example, so single USB will do 4 channels of transcoding.  That is what I do on xLX004, we have about 6 channels, but only 2-3 active at a time.

So the reflectors have a total of 25 modules.  That means I’d need 52 of them?  assuming each module a, b, c, is a channel?

Hi all,

 

I’m totally new with this, so I hope you will forgive my lack of knowledge, and/or what is needed with regards to my goals, and objectives in this post.

I’ve just recently setup an xlx reflector:

with the goal of bringing, d-star, DMR, and fusion to the local Texas Ih-35 system. Currently the Texas i35 system is on FCS, reflector 3, room 30, and I believe that it has a wires-x room 40096.  I’ve gone ahead, and created an x-reflector which is now showing up as reflector 94, and it’s ip address is:

96.126.124.4.

As I understand things, I can't cross-mode out of the box with an xlx reflector, thus I need some kind of Ambe chip to do this?  I currently use D-star, and I have a number of pi-star enabled hotspots, as well as an openspot 3.  What kind of transcoding will an xlx reflector do natively, and where to the Ambecoder chips come in to play?  Also, I have the reflector sitting on a box at linode.com in Dallas, is all of this still doable, even though the reflector is in a remote location?  I know D-star, Dmr, and fusion, but I’ve not been familiar with how to bring everything together, and admittedly I’ having to teach myself Linux.  To setup the xlx reflector, I followed the tutorial at

Anything y’all can do to help I’d appreciate,

Thanks

Re: bringing some transcoding to my xlx reflector?

Ryan Matthew Headley
 

You would only need 52 chips if you anticipated all 26 modules being used simultaneously.  That would likely never happen.  

Three is four pairs is typically quite sufficient.  If you only want to transcode one module, you can set xlxd that way.
