I don't think it makes a difference. Though, some radios don't like
hearing traffic from their own ID. The fly in the ointment is that
the audio is heard on hoseline all the time and only sometime on the
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Ok, I have some more info. I was just
able to listen to a long net so I did a little more
To be clear I'm using a DMR HT
connected to the bridge, connected to AllStar node 45221.
When the issue is happening, one of 2
things happen. My hotspot transmits and shows my DMR ID
the entire time, and it's either completely silent on
the HT or there is a low audio digital type sound coming
out of the DMR HT. It may happen in the middle of
someone talking, or at the beginning. It's usually at
the beginning though.
Also, I can hear the audio fine on
Brandmeister hoseline. See below for a link to a video
of the issue happening (with the low digital sound). The audio you will hear in
the background is hoseline (My DMR ID) playing on a
computer right next to me. All that's coming out of
the HT is the digital signal you hear. When it drops
and starts back talking then you can hear the audio
fine out of the HT. And the next time it does it, it
may be completely silent or may have the low audio
digital signal again.
to me it's between Brandmeister and my hotspot, but
I'm not sure what triggers it. I guess it could be
related to how the audio is converted, not sure. I
don't have the same issues listening to other DMR TGs.

Mike and I have been discussing where we think the
issue might be. Don't reduce the minimum hang time or
you will run into the BM "loop detector"
You mentioned that you are listening on a hot spot. Do
you have the log for the time period that is the same
as the other 2 logs you posted? When this happen, does
your DMR radio still display the proper data while
listening to silence?

Any ideas on the intermittent
audio issue? The only setting I see in
Analog_Bridge.ini is below. Could changing this
help at all?
minTxTimeMS = 2000
; Minimum time in MS for hang delay

PM, WillieB <will@...>
been busy but finally had a chance to
catch it this morning. See attached
logs. It happened right at the end of
each log. I believe all the extended
hang times at the end are related. It
doesn’t seem to show much else but maybe
that will give us some ideas…?
Since the data flows from ASL to MB
through AB, it's good to tail both the AB
and MB logs. You should see waht is
happening in "real time"

bridge is working very well, however I
do have one main problem.
when one person stops talking and
another person takes their turn, my
hotspot transmits but there's no
audio coming out. Then next time it
drops and someone else starts
talking I hear the audio. It may do
this in about 1 out of 5
transmissions or so. It varies per
person and AllStar node I'm
connected to. I'm not sure if it's
when they key up fast or what.
can listen on the AllStar node and I
hear the audio there, but not on
else having that problem? I was
going to go check out the
Analog_Bridge.ini file and see if
there are any settings in there that
might make sense changing but maybe
someone can give me some ideas
before I go poking around and
changing things (after backing up
the ini of course!).
can also tail -f the 2 log files
when it's happening and see if that
gives me any clues to what might be
