Actually, you can edit the DCS and DExtra host files.

Buster app -> Show package contents -> Contents -> Resources -> DCSReflectors.plist and DExtraReflectors.plist.

I think the REF host file may be coded in the app, though.

From what I can’t tell, support has dried up for Buster. Four of the XRFs I want to use won’t link - there of them timeout and one says Doesn’t Exist. My email to the author went unanswered.

I assume these XRFs showed up after Buster 1.0 was released. Usually one would update a hosts files to add these, but apparently Buster has the connections hard coded in the app (my guess). If so, it would required the author NH6Z or a competent C hacker to make updates.

I believe the source code is available per this link… <>

It looks like the code could be updated and re-released under another (completely different) name, Any takers for this task?

PS - The voice prompt quite working after a recent macOS update.

The only issue I have is with Buster software as i use a Mac, there isn’t the number of channels that are available e.g.: any DVU channels, my local repeater is on DVU49.
I cannot find any DVU listed on Buster.
I haven’t tried any windows software as that would mean me buying windows to use just for D-star and dual booting.
Im in the UK

Hi Dave

I have been using the ThumbDV with WinDV for over a year, first with a Windows 7 laptop. The Windows 7 laptop decided to leave this earth and I replaced it with a new laptop with Windows 10, the ThumbDV, WinDV and / or Windows 10 are not getting along, I have not been able to get on to D-Star. I will be glad to say more.

Please let me know how you do.

That's my short story
