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:
