Re: Buster plist files

 

A .plist is an XML file -- if you open it in xcode you get the table you see, if you open it with an editor you get the XML you see.

Hi John,

Thanks for addressing the plists update issue.

I’m trying to test your plist but I think i’m working above my pay grade - again.

I’m comparing my current plist file with the one I downloaded. They both open with Xcode by default. I edited my original plist just now using Xcode and it worked fine.

However, when I open the original .plist file, it appears as a table….


When I open the .html file that I downloaded, it shows the html code….


What should I do next?

Save your old .plist files and you can swap in the files generated.

One is only reflectors, the other is reflectors plus gateways.

The XRX### reflector names are for XLX reflectors running xlxd as modified by VK4TUX (limited number currently -- try XRX060 for testing).

Hi Phil:


I do not have the software working yet on Windows but the ThumbDV is working great on OS X using Buster software.  I'll play around a bit more with Windows  (I am a novice at that system) and let you know.

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

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?

Hi Phil

 

I just downloaded Thumbtest.exe to verify my ThumbDV was alive.

I worked as advertised.

I use my ThumbDV with a Flex 6700, it plugs directly into a USB socket on the Radio.

 

Which software are you using ? I am looking for something that will run native on a PC

Hi Dave

 

When you download the ThumbDV  software and use it for awhile, let me know what you think.  Not working well here.
