Re: ASL<>Analog_Bridge<>HBlink not working

Steve,
Assumptions:
You are running HB_Bridge.py not hblink.py
HB_Bridge ports are pointing at Analog_Bridge ports.

Post your HB_Bridge config file.

All,

 

I’ve just upgraded to the latest Analog Bridge and HBLink from github and I am having some issues and need some help. Originally I was thinking my DV3000 was not working but after doing AMBEtest4.py it came back successful.

ASL does talk to analog_bridge…I see can see the PTT on and off:

 

                M: 2018-04-14 20:54:02.109 PTT on

              M: 2018-04-14 20:54:07.288 PTT off (keyed for 5179 ms)

 

However  I don’t see anything in the HBlink screen. Also I don’t see DMR transmissions made on the talkgroup:
