is MMDVM_Bridge executable?
root@dvswitch-server:/opt/MMDVM_Bridge# ls -la MMDVM_Bridge
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3930476 May 23 19:33 MMDVM_Bridge

Is MMDVM_Bridge running?

root@dvswitch-server:/opt/MMDVM_Bridge# systemctl status mmdvm_bridge

Or, look at it another way:
root@dvswitch-server:/opt/MMDVM_Bridge# ps ax | grep MMDVM_Bridge

sorry to be a pain...
 not sure Ive done this correctly.
I went to github and found the file MMDVM_Bridge.armhf I placed the file in /op/MMDVM_Bridge/  
I then renamed the MMDVM_Bridge to MMDVM_Bridge.OLD and renamed the armhf to MMDVM_Bridge

I tried with AMA0 after hooking up to GPIO
also with ttl to usb converter and changed to USB0 still getting nothing after rebooting each way,

thanks John
