Re: DVSwitch server not linked anymore #analog_bridge

Hi My problem is solved,

After some time I could not link to the DMR Brandmeister server?
We are forced (in the Netherlands) now to set the RX and TX frequency to the same value (simplex).
This is done without any notice from the Brandmeister administrator.
Everything works fine now. I found this information on a Facebook page .

Because of this issue we noticed that whiteout connection with the bridge u can use only the reflector as an intercom.
Is this allowed? sinds you are not connecting to any server.
 
So finally if people have trouble to connect DMR change the frequency TX and RX to the same value. (change this in the settings of the server / bridge)
Log on to the DVSwitch server and go in to the menu with the command DVS. Go to the Advanced Configuration Menu. 
So not in the Analog Reflector. I chose 433.0000 as TX and RX frequency.

Thanks, Paul.

While Linux can be a a pain for incompatibility, I have simply installed the current version of DVswitch (based on Buster, I understand) on the current version of the Raspberry Pi OS (also based on Buster, Linux RasPi-18 4.19.66-v7+ #1253 SMP Thu Aug 15 11:49:46 BST 2019 armv7l). But I could easily be wrong.

Fortunately, it's working now, so I don't /need/ to change anything, but would you recommend a re-install, or any other changes?

Cheers,
David

I recently installed DVSwitch on a spare Raspberry Pi 3B and it seems to
be working perfectly, however:

- I installed on an existing working RPi rather then from the image.  I
don't appear to have a dvswitch account.  Does that matter?

- I added a DVstick 30 (with the device powered down...), configured
again, and the functions appear to be working correctly.  I've not been
able to do A/B testing but I feel the quality is better on DMR. Is
there any way from the dashboard (or otherwise) I can check that the
DVstick 30 is working and in use?

- The Monit function appears to have stopped working, after the DVstick
30 install.  I get no response from the :2812 port, and if I try:

   sudo monit status

I get I set of error messages including:

/etc/monit/conf-enabled/ysfparrot:5: Program does not exist:
'/usr/bin/systemctl'
/etc/monit/conf-enabled/ysfparrot:6: Program does not exist:

/etc/monit/conf-enabled/analog_bridge:7: Program does not exist:

I've not used Monit before so I'm unsure where to start trouble-shooting!

One question - how many hotspots/DVswitch can one D-STAR user have on a single public IP address?

With DMR I can have multiple hotspots, but each have their own ID (e.g. 2354000-01, 2354000-02 and so on). Perhaps this is not possible with D-STAR, and because I already have one hotspot connected, the second one won't connect properly?

Of course, this could be completely wrong! Might also apply to P25, NXDN?

Yes, that's what I expected, Steve, but when I press Connect with REF001C selected, it speaks "Not linked", even though the status line says: "Connected to REF001C".  This with the DVSwitch PC client.

I've not touched the DSTAR section of pyUC.ini, and it looks correct.

Yes, I did Steve, but I just ran through it again and - behold - DV3000 now showing as /dev/tyyUSB0 and the "topmost" LED on the DV3000 is flashing.  Great!  Monit is working as well.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Next issue: getting D-STAR working.

On the DVSwitch dashboard, DMR is showing as master, but D-Star Net is showing "Not Linked".  I've left the module as "B" although there's no RF involved. Can I then simply select the D-Star as REF001C (I am registered for D-Star), or is there something else I need to do?  I can see activity on the channel but DVSitch appears to be seeing nothing.

Thanks!

Many thanks, Ernie.

I'm a little out of my depth here!  Lack of knowledge on this arrangement.

I don't see any LEDs glowing on the DVstick30 at all, but it's not often in transmit mode.  Is the DVstick used in DMR etc. or just in D-STAR?

I don't know how to start the AB from the command-line, so that I can watch the log.  If I use the dashboard and hover over the AB info I see:

[DV3000]

rxPort: 2460

However I already have a GPS device which is on AMA0.  Shouldn't that be USB0, and if so, how do I correct?  I /thought/ I'd selected USB in the configuration screen.

There are other questions but let's get this resolved first!

I am a bit unclear as to the syntax of Analog_Bridge.ini for a static route to my XLX reflector via ircddbgateway.

I have disabled all modes except D-Star in MMDVM_Bridge, and have changed ambeMode = DSTAR. What should I use in Analog_Bridge to link to a specific XLX reflector/module of that reflector? It seems that ircddbgateway comes with xlx support enabled by default, pointing to a hosts file. Just not sure how to tune it.

I've never actually seen a working example of a static DStar bridge. At this point, I've done just about everything else but that.
