Re: Trying to install and setup DV switch on android

You made backups of the files before you modified them. You can restore the backups if you have a problem. Since you are running ClearNode, I would contact Gerry from ClearNode since he overwrites the config files from templates. I sent him the info months ago so that he could incorporate the changes needed into the templates.

I assume $node is $my node number? Also, can it be that anything connected to it? Or could I have it to only be my internal or external IP address? And, if I do this for dV switch, will it also work for any other IAX application that I may have?

Re: C-Bridge -> HB-Link using HB_Bridge & IPSC_Bridge.

Will,

It was after an update.  Now running 9831.2021.1.10.  Tried to go back to a previous version from January 2019 with same results.  Its just strange that I am running the same issue to playback.py using only DMRLink.

Steve,
I will ask in that group.

Thanks.

Wow, so encouraging! Thanks.

Ok, so I do have a ThumbDV, I just referred to it by another nomenclature.              <joke class="obscure"> does it have an NSN? </joke>.

Also, fortunately, I did buy a really good DMR HT before realizing that I need something that does the other 'stuff' digital. So I can operate for a while with DMR function waiting until later.

So, This tells me what I need to do is get all this fired up and running so I can start to interact with y'all on the level you are familiar (acronyms and such).
Let me dive into it and with the confidence that it is not wasted time and see how it goes.

Glad to hear the FT-8900 will work. I have a couple of radios that do narrow, but their ability to TX/RX wide data is questionable. If using the data port and the 9600 baud pin on the FT-8900 is sufficient then that will help.

Just interested to see if you happen to have similar results.

No one, yet.  And AFAIK, I don't know anyone with plans to do DMR.  Currently, only M17 is the focus for the client.

The basic idea will work for all modes except DMR.  In fact, there now exists an implementation that uses a MMDVM modem (can use a hotspot board for QRPP) into a 9600 bps capable radio.  Currently, this sort of modem only exists for M17, but other modes could conceivably be added.  Some modes (especially D-STAR) would also require a hardware AMBE vocoder, such as a ThumbDV.  DMR deserves special mention, because of the T/R switching requirements for proper repeater operation, as you alluded to.

There was an announcement abour M17Client on the OpenDV group.  I've been testing M17Client with a Repeater Builders MMDVM modem and a Yaesu FT-8900 with great results.  I have been using this with a MMDVM based repeater that I have on test here.

Hey guys (gals), 

I have a desire/dream to build a device wherein I connect a UHF FM radio & antenna to, an interface board, a Raspberry Pi, and then some sort of spkr/mic/PTT arrangement that will allow me to TX/RX in the 3 major digital protocols (DMR/D-Star/YSF), all from the same setup.
I do not expect to do all these at once. Even if I had to reboot the device to switch modes, just as long as it could do all 3, that would be fine.

I have the 
STM32_DVM_v4, a Pi 3 B+, and one of those DV300U USB sticks from NWdigitalradio.com

I have been a software dev/dev-ops/tech svcs worker for over 20 years.
I have both mocked people who say it, and also said myself,  "It can't be that hard." 

Can you point me in the right direction in this group?

C-Bridge -> HB-Link using HB_Bridge & IPSC_Bridge.

KB5PBM
 

I have been running this configuration for several years now without any issues.  Lately I have had a problem with the stream from the C-bridge to HBLink cutting out at regular iniverals.  From HBLink to the C-Bridge is fine,  I have had all my interfaces pointed to interface 127.0.0.1.  Both have been on the same server.  CPU only shows about 15% with traffic.  I have disabled iptables rules with same results.  So I made an instance of dmrlink-playback.py with IPSC_Bridge logging in to that process with same results.  When I look at the debug of HB_Bridge I see 
DEBUG (IPSCBRIDGE2) MSTPONG Received. Pongs Since Connected: 13
INFO Voice Transmission Start on TS 1 and TG 51 (51) from 3148824 (3148824)
INFO Voice Transmission End 2.33 seconds loss rate: 0.00% (37/37)

On the return path looking at IPSC_Bridge I am getting 

DEBUG (TARMAMASTER1) End AMBE encode STREAM ID: 3434497723 FRAMES: 46
INFO Voice Transmission Start on TS 1 and TG 51 (51) from 3148824 (3148824)
INFO Voice Transmission End 2.72 seconds loss rate: 93.33% (3/45)

I also tried moving all three of these processes to another machine with same results as well as delete all the .pyc files of all three directories and restart application.  Currently I am running these on python2.7. 

Like I said this has worked flawless for several years and just started having an issue.  I am currently using hblink3 with python3.5.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
