You can disable the on-board sound device by editing /boot/config.txt
add to the bottom of the file:
dtparam=audio=off

If you hear audio come out of your radio, then transmit on a local FM radio and press the space bar on the python app (it was ment for another purpose).  If that works, I can port some simple vox code into USRPAudio.py



Re: Allstar & DMR | piping audio from talkgroup into USB soundcard

it looks like the SL is not the default.
Create a asound.conf in /etc

Put below in it.
defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.ctl.card 1

I'm setting up an allstar node to bridge my DMR talkgroup for my local simplex group using a RaspPi.

It appears I got just about everything working and connected with my node. I can send commands and even a 1khz test tone into the talkgroup, which I hear on the DMR radios. So that bit is working; yet the purpose was to have the allstar/RaspPI key one of my radios and go out on analog 2m. 

My radio is a FT857D and the interface is a SignalinkUSB. I am able to get the Signalink to PPT via VOX if I play audio on the RaspberryPi, but can't seem to bring audio in from the DMR talkgroup to PPT the Signallink. 

I suspect the issue is specifying the audio I/O in Analog_Bridge.ini. 

Below is an lsusb output as well as the Audio Device section of Analog_Bridge

https://pastebin.com/HVK7uiRU

I'm a little turned around by this, as I am not sure how to specify the audio IO source; 1. capture the DMR audio and pipe to USB/PCM audio interface into the SignalinkUSB.

I know the comment block says "not normally needed in gateway service" ...so am I on the right track or should I be using chan_usbradio or chan_simpleusb? 

I've been trying different configurations and modules, but not having any luck.

Any ideas how I might get this done? 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Allstar & DMR | piping audio from talkgroup into USB soundcard

I'm away from the desk right now so I cant look at the config, but iirc I reset the 

Basically what I did was set the USB audio codec in pi config to default, then played a song on YouTube. That audio triggered the signalink which PTT on VOX. I also installed pulseAudio, although I am not sure if it played a role.

When the SignalLink keyed, it pushed the audio from YouTube to my radio (857) 

My thinking was if i could get it to parrot or play the talk group audio, the default output would do the trick, at least one way. 

I didnt use any command iirc. 

I may have set the audio in and out in mmdvm ini to ttyusb but I think I reset to /dev/null prior to the "YouTube test"

I'll be back at the desk in a few minutes.

What device are you sending audio to the signal link from the Pi? Where you say "I am able to get the Signalink to PPT via VOX if I play audio on the RaspberryPi"
In other words, what command line did you use to send the audio.

I'm setting up an allstar node to bridge my DMR talkgroup for my local simplex group using a RaspPi.

It appears I got just about everything working and connected with my node. I can send commands and even a 1khz test tone into the talkgroup, which I hear on the DMR radios. So that bit is working; yet the purpose was to have the allstar/RaspPI key one of my radios and go out on analog 2m. 

My radio is a FT857D and the interface is a SignalinkUSB. I am able to get the Signalink to PPT via VOX if I play audio on the RaspberryPi, but can't seem to bring audio in from the DMR talkgroup to PPT the Signallink. 

I suspect the issue is specifying the audio I/O in Analog_Bridge.ini. 

Below is an lsusb output as well as the Audio Device section of Analog_Bridge

https://pastebin.com/HVK7uiRU

I'm a little turned around by this, as I am not sure how to specify the audio IO source; 1. capture the DMR audio and pipe to USB/PCM audio interface into the SignalinkUSB.

I know the comment block says "not normally needed in gateway service" ...so am I on the right track or should I be using chan_usbradio or chan_simpleusb? 

I've been trying different configurations and modules, but not having any luck.

Any ideas how I might get this done? 

Thanks in advance.

Lou,
Can you paste the output of aplay -l

Lou,
What device are you sending audio to the signal link from the Pi? Where you say "I am able to get the Signalink to PPT via VOX if I play audio on the RaspberryPi"
In other words, what command line did you use to send the audio.

Yep, you need a URIx or equivalent.

Re: DV Switch as master then connected to BM

Kim-Benjamin Lütkemeier
 

Hello,

you can try this software "Hytera DMRGateway" Version 1.7
http://ham-dmr.at/index.php/download/

1. Hytera repeater connect to a local Master (Hytera DMRGateway)
2. Hytera DMRGateway connect to DMRGateway from G4KLX
3. DMRGateway connect to your HBLink

Its working but my Problem was, you hear the "Hotspots" only on TS2 maybe you find a solution to route the traffic on TS1

A Manual you find on this Website also.
This software block encrypted calls.

Have fun
Do1KBL, Kim

Neither DMRlink, nor HBlink will work with Hytera repeaters. They speak a different language... they don’t publish the protocol, and I have none to test with.
