Re: need to find a way to link hblink or ysf or mmdvmbridge to wires x room

For now we are using a hotspot connected to a ysf reflector and a wiresx node running in simplex and low power dummy load to join them.

Hello Gary

You can use Xlx or Hblink without BM.
If connecting ysf to dmr you loose gps. Most people have dmr ids.

We get the occasional new hotspot user pressing the WiRESX button causing our WiRESX node software doing the bridging to crash and restart.  For use that is somewhat painless and only affects the bridge traffic between YSF to WiRESX  for about 2 seconds gap. I like your method of going to DMR to strip off those WiREX control characters from the data stream. However, I suspect you also loose the GPS data as well. So those running Fusion to Fusion across the bridge with GPS no longer see distance or callsign/name. Is bridging DMR  to XLX dependent on the BM network or is it self supporting? M

As of today, MMDVM_Bridge can not directly connect to a FCS room. You would have to use YSFGateway and set the startup to the FCS room you want to connect to. Then steer MB to your YSFGateway.

Ernie, 

Thanks for your response. What is the reason behind using the OpenSpot 2 to bridge your WiresX to DMR vs YSF?  Our random BM user blocked message is our biggest annoyance because once it starts it follows any transmissions on the room until we stop the bridge or there is an hour without a activity. We have one user who triggers it anytime they key up.

Hello Gary
Pressed the send button.

Lots of software wants to use the wires-x  button to change rooms. This has caused endless problems.

Hello Gary

Wires-x  to openspot2 to xlx works. C4fm to Dmr.

Wires-x to modified MMDVM_Host to Ysfreflector works. Works great until someone transmits with the x button still enable on there radio.

Wires-x  to Fcs Reflector using openspot works.

Ysf to Dmr. Use MMDVM_Bridge.

You think you have problems with Brandmeister wait till you link wires-x  into the system. For two years everything was fine until most software wants to use the wires-x

Steve, 

Thanks for getting it back on the radar. If I had to prioritize the two issues I’m experiencing it would be 1) minimum TX duration setting in MB (to stop our random BM user block message) and 2) DMR audio level difference.

I already talk to them it's something to do with one of the files on my end i just taught I would ask since there alot of guys setup Nxdn Reflector  threw dvswitch like I did that might point me in the right direction 


Re: Nxdn to Nxcore

Your best option would be to ask the admins of Nxcore. This has nothing to do with DVSwitch software.

Change source module - MMDVM_Bridge > DMRGateway > XLX

Hey everyone,

I've been successfully using the DVSwitch program suite for a while now, so thanks for all your hard work!  One thing I can't figure out though...  I have several links using the same callsign going into an XLX machine.  I'd like to change the module on the source side so it's easier to tell them apart.  Like CALLSIGN-Y for my YSF2DMR link, CALLSIGN-A for my analog link, etc...  Right now they all show up as the B module.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks and 73,

As I'm not as knowledgeable about the software as of yet, I thought I would take a stab at starting to clean up the documentation in the wiki. Whew!

I've made several changes to the main page (click "Wiki" in the navigation), the sidebar, and several other pages. The changes so far have been mostly for looks, but with some grammatical and updates where needed.

Some of the things I've been checking out on GitHub to confirm what each of the partner apps of DVSwitch can do has been really helpful in understanding how to make use of this software! So, if you have a moment to check on the wiki and give some feedback, I'd very much appreciate it.

Access to a Fusion FCS room #dmrlink

Hi,
I'm trying to connect to the QSO America room on FCS but can't find it in the dropdown menu using my RT4. 
So, I'm thinking I can add a macro for QSO America but need to know how to format it. What I'm doing doesn't seem to connect.

Any help would be appreciated.

Gary,
Thanks for reminding me about the audio level problem. The issue kinda dropped off our radar. I know Mike is reading this and we will at least get this back on the list to investigate.

Hi Erine,

How many end points do you typically have on your network using this configuration? How is the audio level balance between DMR and YSF? Do you experience and issue with Brandmeister user block message? 

This is my setup.
Wires-X - OpenSpot 1 (YSF)
                                   MMDVM_Bridge YSF to DMR (BM)

The DMR audio is ~ 30% louder then YSF, audio. We probably experience the BrandMeister User Blocked message a few times per week.

73,
...Gary, KE8O

We have on average 26 connections on Wires-X, 40 YSF, no visibility into the number of users on DMR.
