XLX <--> TGIF

Dan K2IE
 

I'm seeking to bridge an XLX module to a TGIF TG.  I tried to model on the formula published for XLX <--> DMRGateway <--> MMDVM_Bridge <--> MMDVM_Bridge <--> DMRGateway <--> BM but things break down at the TGIF DMRGateway module.  I turned on a rules trace and it seems that any attempt I make to rewrite TG 6 to my TGIF TG fail because the rule is not matched.

Is anyone doing this and, if so, can you provide the DMR Network stanza used for the TGIF side of things?  Particularly the rewrites if you have it working...

73,

Dan

That's a good question, and one that I will have to test tonight.

DMRGateway still exists. It's a separate project outside DVSwitch.

I need to make a new document, now that MB has been updated and issues have been fixed. I'll work on it tonight.

If you have an XLX Reflector that has Transcoder Hardware just ask Brandmeister for an Interlink.

I saw activity from MMDVM_Bridge show up on the console from the talk group, but it never made it to the reflector. I think I broke something there. Then I found this guide. However, DMRGateway doesn't seem to be in DVSwitch anymore, unless I'm missing something obvious, which is entirely possible. I found a post from November 2018 stating that DMRGateway no longer exists, yet the first draft of this doc was written in February 2019.
So, what exactly is the state of DMRGateway?

XLX TO MB TO MB TO BM
OR
XLX TO DMRGATEWAY TO MB TO MB TO BM

Must use latest binary for MB
Look back a few messages regarding connecting ysf reflectors . On how to connect  two MB together.
Use Dmr ports instead of ysf.

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
