So if I am using a Pi, do I still need the pyUc app installed on mac, or should simply pointing the browser to the pi’s address allow for audio setup etc?

All of the .ini files can be edited. The dvs menu is intended to
make it easier to use. All of the programs and .ini files are in
/opt For example, MMDVM_Bridge is in /opt/MMDVM_Bridge and all of
the configuration files are in the same directory. Pretty much a
self contained unit. Feel free to ask questions so that we can help
you get setup. Yes, you can tell DVSwitch to use the software
vocoder at first and switch to hardware later. I suggest you not use
D-Star without the hardware vocoder. it sounds really bad on TX and
RX with software.
Hope this helps,

I've just downloaded the latest dvswitch image, flashed it to an
SD card, and put it on a pi. So far so good. However, I'd rather
edit the .ini files Ineed by hand instead of using the menus,
because when I look at the menus, using voiceover on the mac, I
Vertical box, vertical box, vertical box, vertical box, vertical
box, 1 "insert menuchoice" vertical box drawing,, vertical box
drawing, vertical box drawing, vertical box drawing, vertical box
drawing, vertical box drawing
After I've made the desired menu choice I hear:
Vertical box down right, vertical box down right, vertical box
down right, graphic, graphic, graphic, graphic, "insert submenu,
I hope you get the picture. This is in no way the fault of those
of you who have developed DV-switch, this is the result of
voiceover, the screen reader that I use on the Mac, not having
enough smarts to deal with the emulated graphics. Is there a way
I can edit the necessary files I need for my installation straight
from Terminal using something like nano?
I tried poking around in Terminal, when I logged in to the pie
using ssh, however I can't find them. Where are they located?
I have all my information, DMR ID, CCS7 ID, Callsign, lat/lon etc.
Second is there an html version of the installation guide? That
would make it a whole lot easier to read straight from my
computer, instead of having to export the file, converted to
something else, etc.
Third, I'm going to install it now, without a Vocoder, and just
use the software version. I'm assuming that it should not be too
hard to go back, and tell DV-switch that I do have a vocoder in
Finally, I'm looking at the installation instructions for
installing DV-switch on a mac, and you indicate where to download
the Pyuc files from, explain that it will unzip to a specific
directory, and recommend that users move it to a different
directory, by indicating that the directory should look like this:
What is that suggested path? I can't tell that from the pdf.
Thanks so much, I look forward to playing with this in some
All the best,
