are you running hblink3?  andy has put a bridge in there for xlx.   works great to any xlx reflector

Try this script it will install HBlink and HBmonitor and both working(for me on several different machines incliding Raspberry Pi3 B+ and Raspberry Pi4 B)

Re: HBMonitor help #hblink

HBmonitor is unsupported. Please read the README and pay special attention to the first line where it says:

COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED SOFTWARE - DO NOT ASK FOR SUPPORT OR FEATURES

People seem to be ignoring this, and still expect or request support. Cort N0MJS has warned us in the past about ignoring his messages, please do not request support here.

Perhaps Cort must add a WIRES-X PEER or YSFPEER on his software.
You must try to install YSFReflector and YSF2DMR on you system and then make a link to your BM/DMR+ TG into hblink.cfg

Hello Dear Cort N0MJS and all.
I have installed HBlink ed HBmonitor on my Raspberry Pi3 B+ and all is working well.
Now i am testing the HBlink3 that uses Python3 , but HBmonitor is not compatible . I have try to install also the python2 packages for compatibility,
but it don't works. Always the some errors on about compatibility .
There is a solution or i must expect a new release of HBmonitor (HBmonitor3) ???
I want use HBlink3 because it has a perfect configuration for XLX , but the monitoring software is a must have for all users of my system.
Can we help me ???
Thanks in advance .
Best regards and 73 de Tony IS0HHA


Re: new inquiry about the hb link program

Kenneth,

Look at HB Link as a "Virtual Repeater" meaning you have one access point with two slots.

So one group could be on time slot 1 on talk group 100 and another group could be on slot 2 on talk group 200 and both work through the system at the same time.

Keep in mind, each user (especially on Slot1) needs a device like their hotspot or repeater to be capable of using both slots for this scenario to work.

So, in theory, your idea will work with HBLink... You have to make sure everyone has the proper equipment.

Another option is setting up more than one Master and then you can do other things but I think for what you are trying to do the above scenario would work.

I hope that makes sense.

73,

Doug

I am wanting to set up a small dmr network for just a few friends and myself and want to use the hblink program on a remote server. Eventually there will be about 10 people logging into this with hotspots. I don't know much about HBlink but I was told it was a mini dmr bridge so I understand that just like other dmr networks, my HBlink can have several users and small groups can use different talkgroups at the same time. Some time later I heard from a different source that only one talkgroup could be active at one time on HBlink. I don't know whitch to believe. In the end, I am looking for a software package that hotspots can connect to and have more than one talkgroup being used at the same time. If hb link is used I would use it as a stand alone server and I would not be linking to other networks. It would be just a private place for myself and other friends to do testing and play dmr. Thank you for any help I can get. Pardin the bad spelling I am on a schedule and I am typing in a hurry. Kenneth kk4ql.

Re: XLX <--> TGIF

Dan K2IE
 

Asked and answered...

So I had a hunch after looking at some log messages...DMRGateway would not rewrite TG 6 as needed when TGIF was defined as DMR Network 3.  When I renamed it to DMR Network 1, rewriting worked just fine.

Working...

So the XLX <--> BM works for XLX <--> TGIF also, but make sure that TGIF is DMR Network 1.  You can delete the unneeded network stanzas so avoid naming conflict.

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.

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.

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.

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?
