Re: Will AllStar recognize DTMF commands from a DMR link?

 

I'll have to give this a try sometime, because the lack of DTMF decoding over USRP is a major impediment to running AllStar on an MMDVM based repeater in FM mode.

Ideally, would be nice to have this enhancement in the DVSwitch repo's version of ASL.

The latest chan_usrp.c from  KB4MDD  ( Dated 31/03/2021) works perfectly .

The DTMF decoder  works fine with  DTMF from  DMR BM   and from  FM mode  on MMDVMHost  bi mode repeater.

I  started  with ASL 2.0  beta 6 image from Index of /ASL_Images_Beta/Intel-AMD (allstarlink.org)
Burned the iso file on  DVD and installed on a PC.
Compiled source  manually using  instructions and source code from AllStarLink/ASL-Asterisk: Version of Asterisk used for AllStarLink (github.com).
Asterisk OK .
 Installed DVSwitch Analog Bridge  MD380-emu and MMDVM Bridge from  DVSwitch/DVSwitch-System-Builder (github.com)

After configuration ,, I can  decode  DTMF from my DMR radio on TG 302 299 ( Test TG on server 302) . *70 returns  asterisk node status.
Asterisk CLI shows every DTMF sent flawlessly ..

On Rpi,  loaded ASL Beta 6 image from  Index of /ASL_Images_Beta/Raspberry_Pi2_3_4 (allstarlink.org)
Installed on uSD card .

Compiled the source manually  using  instructions and source code from AllStarLink/ASL-Asterisk: Version of Asterisk used for AllStarLink (github.com).
Followed the instructions but  added "apt upgrade"  after INSTALL THE ASL REPO command .
Asterisk OK .
Installed  MMDVMHost   and  configured for FM mode using RB  STM32-DVM  V3 board .

After configuration of  FM mode and  Asterisk USRP channel,
Asterisk CLI shows every DTMF sent.
It opens a lot of options to control systems from DMR or  FM

If someone can test DTMF from D Star or Fusion. It would complete the tests.

I tried  use  ASL-LIVE BUILD  but I have not yet understood how to  get the latest source in the LIVE BUILD

I keep  ending  with an equivalent of V6 in my LIVE-BUILD ....

Anyone have a clue  ???

I looked at  Allstarlink Beta 2.0 version . 
The last commit for usrp.h at
states  that DTMF decode is added  for the new USRP channel .

The usrp.h  commit was submitted on March 31  2021  just 7 days after   the last beta live build ( build 6)from kc1kcc

Just missing  a couple of days . 

My next project is to compile from  source to check if  dtmf decode on USRP works properly for FM mode in MMDVMHost .

I will check if  it will decode DTMF from DMR mode in my Bi-Mode setup also by adding a Analog_Bridge  and MMDVM_bridge for DMR to Allstar link.

I will see if I try to build from source  on  Debian 10 or 11  and post the result . 

Or anyone has an up  to date  Beta Live build he can publish ..

Apologies in advance for asking what could be a newbie question.

I have a repeater on AllStarLink that is working well with the analog_bridge and DVswitch gateway to DMR. Audio sounds great both directions. (Amazingly well given what's going on, thanks developers!)

Anyone sending DTMF AllStar cmds via a DMR link?

If we initiate DTMF commands via the DMR side they are coming out on the FM repeater. But All Star Link does not seem to respond to them.

I've looked but have not been able to find any kind of setting that controls whether DTMF on a link is processed by asterisk/allstar. Did I miss something?

Or is this known to work and it might mean that I have my audio levels off or there is distortion?

I'm going to turn debugging on in asterisk and see if it registers any DTMF.  But if it is just not supported it would help to know that.

Any input would be welcome.
thanks,
Alan

Re: Dvswitch server audio issue #dvs

Billy
 

I think I was just lucky earlier. Its back to the same as before.
I've also tried restricting background data, setting dvswitch mobile to be allowed during data saver. Still same issue.


Re: Dvswitch server audio issue #dvs

Billy
 

Thanks. Yeh I have Bluetooth on permantly. I'll try tuning off


Re: Dvswitch server audio issue #dvs

Mike KB8JNM
 

2 things I can think of is

low network bandwidth. This can change depending on congestion. Could test by getting away from high traffic areas.

And the other is phone cpu bandwidth. Turn off apps running in the background which is advisable anyway. You can even limit those that have access to cellular data as well as so not to compete for it in the first place. Turn off bluetooth when not in use helps some so it is not always looking for a connect.

Phone housekeeping ! Hope that helps.

Steve, does ASL/analog_bridge/mmdvmhost/dvswitch work on Pi 4 raspbian 64bit? (Usbradio) to your knowledge?

I'm starting to see some Pi 4's available locally, where 3B+'s are still largely unobtanium.

You could not get DVSwitch Server running on a Quadro? What did not work? I know allstar does not install on arm64. I'' run it on mine again when I get a chance.
