Thanks Steve.
Will do and let you know what I find.

I know the dvs server is connected to the internet as I can SSH into it from outside my network.

"When I check the BM server list to see if I'm connected, the BM list page says it can't be reached."
Does this mean you can't go to selfcare with a browser?

Thanks Steve, changing telemdefault=0 in rpt.conf has fixed it

Hi Komkit,

thank you very much for the detailed reply. This was the current version when I setup the reflector. I am glad you pointed out the issues. 

I will have a look for an earlier version. If I get time I may look at the source for this version and see if there is an easy fix! 

Thanks 73

Scot,  

YSFReflector version 20210215 many of us are having the same issue with it,  where the reflector would crashed when user is unlinked from the reflector. My reflector would be up for long time and talk on it for hours but as soon as user(s) unlinked - it often crashed.

Some went back down to older version and live with either no IP logging issue or double logging issue but at no crashes. 

There is an opened issue about crashes on G4KLX github issue reports but I guess it was never got a looked at.

Myself went with https://github.com/iu5jae/pYSFReflector and have not look back.  Very stable and have some cool features.  However it was written in Python3 instead of C++.

Give it a try or if you want to stick with G4KLX version I would suggest get the older version if you could live with the IP address bug.

Using VW Mode on C4FM YSF Rooms

Stefsan
 

Hi,
there existing a few rooms here in Germany on C4FM YSF ( rooms like Ramses2) wich allow the usage of the high quality wv mode from yaesu. Normal  Rooms uses the DN mode in most ysf and fcs rooms, unfortunally stations using wv mode are not hearable via dvswitch.
is the a possibillity to activate wv mode by TX/RX for this in dvswitch or supports dvswitch only DN mode?

So if I am using a Pi, do I still need the pyUc app installed on mac, or should simply pointing the browser to the pi’s address allow for audio setup etc?
Thanks,

All of the .ini files can be edited. The dvs menu is intended to make it easier to use. All of the programs and .ini files are in /opt For example, MMDVM_Bridge is in /opt/MMDVM_Bridge and all of the configuration files are in the same directory. Pretty much a self contained unit. Feel free to ask questions so that we can help you get setup. Yes, you can tell DVSwitch to use the software vocoder at first and switch to hardware later. I suggest you not use D-Star without the hardware vocoder. it sounds really bad on TX and RX with software.

Hope this helps,

Finally, I'm looking at the installation instructions for installing DV-switch on a mac, and you indicate where to download the Pyuc files from, explain that it will unzip to a specific directory, and recommend that users move it to a different directory, by indicating that the directory should look like this:

Patrick Perdue
 

Just an aside:

I used to use a hardware vocoder for AMBE. I can't tell the difference between hardware and software. Yes, you'll definitely want hardware for D-Star. That's currently covered by the transcoders on my XLX reflector, not DVSwitch itself, since I don't use it to connect to D-Star directly, at least for now. This will be changing at some point.
