Re: DSTAR to DMR, getting started

Contact a brandmeister server host admin directly. I don't think they even look at the support page requests anymore, I had one in for months and finally got it resolved when I contacted Corey N3FE. Somehow when I put my ticket on the US support website, they said it ended up on the UK ticket system.

You need to open a helpdesk ticket with Brandmeister support. You have to give them the requested information, like TG, Module, IP Address and such.

Be patient, my interlink request is still waiting for approval since February.

Meanwhile, I have successfully gotten MMDVM_Bridge connected to Brandmeister, though I have yet to configure a static talk group on the Brandmeister dashboard for the "hotspot."
That should get DMR audio to DSTAR, but how does audio go the other way?

Please give me an example of what DVSwitch.ini would contain.

Thank you.

Thanks. That is a typical problem I have, over engineering things. I’ll try this.

If you're transcoding on XLX already, you can use MB as a client to connect to Brandmeister. You don't need to go from DStar to Analog to Analog to DMR, you're over engineering the effort.

DSTAR to DMR, getting started

Patrick Perdue
 

Hello all:


I have been tasked with creating a cross-link between an XLX reflector for DSTAR and a Brandmeister DMR talk group.

I have installed XLXD, ircDdbgateway and DVSwitch on a VPS. Ambed with two vocoders is running on a Debian machine at my house, verified connected to XLXD.

As I understand it, the route should look like this:

D-Star <---> ircddbgateway <---> MMDVM_Bridge <---. Analog_Bridge <---> Analog_Bridge <---> MMDVM_Bridge <---> DMR

I have all these tools installed. I'm just looking for a basic outline on how to configure the two instances of MMDVM_Bridge and Analog_Bridge for this type of link. For that matter, I'm not sure if I have configured ircDdbgateway correctly, using a configuration template and ircDdbgatewayd, but I suppose that's technically out of the scope of this group.

I found a guide for bridging P25 to DMR, but haven't come across a good resource for doing the same between DSTAR and DMR.

I hate to be that guy that re-invents the wheel, but I'm just looking for a good starting-point.


Thanks for any help.

Tom,

I use MB / AB to play  newsletters, emcom alerts, etc which are recorded in wav files., and I need to change TG in scripts that are call  in crontab

-- I enter new TG directly in DVSmobile. Can you please advise how I would use scripts?
Tnx ... Tom VE3NY


Re: 1 Way Audio (XLX DMR to ASL)

How do you go direct? I guess just enter the 4001 under TG on DVS.ini or AB?


Re: 1 Way Audio (XLX DMR to ASL)

Steve KC1AWV
 

Ah, I gotcha. If it's DMR on XLX, then YSF can just go direct there without having to transcode through analog.
I have a mindset that prefers not to daisy chain links, I like hub and spoke more. If one of the reflectors goes offline, I still have a path out somewhere and I'm not an island to myself.

There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say :)

OK,
I'll test when I get a chance.
