Re: Analog_Bridge to D-Star audio levels

Just to follow up on using ThumbDV's with the XLXD software. Like I told you in chat, I've setup a few of these now. They work great & have been rock solid using the 1.1 version of the AMBED server software. I've had lots of issues w/ dropouts on the 1.3 version. I also modified the latency in the 1.1/1.3 versions to try to cut down on the issues. That' makes all the difference in the world on the 1.1 version. The default value is 4, drop it down to 1 & I haven't had any issues at all. If you need more info about that, let me know. I will say that as far as doing the DMR<->D-Star bridge either setup works. Using the Analog_Bridge, HB_Bridge, Dummy Repeater is the most flexible way to go. It allows you to changes things on the fly pretty quickly. Twice a week normally I swap the "Carolina Link" from it's home on XLXD054B over to REF054C/REF061C for a couple of nets. With the XLXD reflector I have setup, I can't do that, but I do have a full time interlink from the BM Network on that & it works great after making the changes noted above. I've had better luck setting the XLXD transcoding system on an X64 system also. I know a few people running them on PI3's & have good luck. The last one I helped setup, we even used a powered USB Hub & had issues w/ it being reliable. Just my $0.02. :-) Hope that helps. 73 de K4SQI.

Steve,It's used quite a bit more than you think. You don't have to look that hard on google or Yahoo to find examples. There is no easy way to go from DMR to D-Star so Analog_bridge is used. I guess you could use XLX these days and maybe that's another option.
