Re: Current Best-Practices for Linking with Brandmeister
A couple of things:
In my experience, requesting an XLX interlink to your reflector from a Brandmeister master server works pretty well. They would prefer you do it that way or use OpenBridge. In my setup, using XLX interlink on 3101, it's reasonably stable, especially after the recent hotspot security requirement. Given this, you can probably do everything you want without using HBlink3 or any of the tools from DVSwitch at all, allowing XLXD to manage the connection to BM, as well as transcoding to DSTAR and YSF.
With ambed, you need two vocoders for every module on the
reflector you wish to transcode, meaning you will always need a
minimum of two. No transcoding required for DMR to YSF, but any of
those modes to or from DSTAR will use both vocoder chips -- one to
decode and one to encode. Only having one vocoder on XLXD would be
pointless even if it did initialize that way. This isn't a
DVSwitch related issue.
