John-EA5JAV
 

Good morning, my self care on Brandmeister is all Okay, can see my node and IP address of RPi running DVSwitch but unable to Tx or Rx via DVSwitch. Can access and use DMR via other methods e.g. Droidstar so I know Brandmeister side Okay. Have reinstalled DVSwitch from scratch and still no joy, all settings within the client application Okay and same issues on other devices I have running DVSwitch on, running very latest software, all other modes P25, NXDN, DSTAR, Allstar etc all Okay and working via DVSwitch, any ideas please as don't know what else to do? Thanks

Re: DSTAR TX from ASL comes out as TG 0

Same issue here. only on REF001 E (parrot), the dashboard shows the Target properly. For any other reflector I too get TG 0.

I thought it was just me.
Thanks if anyone would like to shed a light on this.

FWIW, they're all in the files area of this group.

What would the rules look like? I can't seam to figure this out. Do I add a TG (phone ID)?

Re: [ASL] stanza is intended in the dvswitch.ini

Steve N4IRS
 

It is uses to allow dvswitch.sh to point AB at a ASL USRP channel driver connection.

The dashboard does log file scraping and if I remember, the solution is to set your STFU log to replace the MMDVM log.  I could be wrong though.


Re: I'm stumped....

Scott Busby
 

This thread was very helpful in getting STFU connected to Brandmeister. However, now my DVSwitch Dashboard doesn't show any DMR information because it seems to be linked to MMDVM_bridge. How do I get DVSwitch Dashboard to show my DMR calls now that I'm using STFU?
Thanks!

Man, I am having a great day.  Everything is falling into place.  Looks like dvswitch.sh will do the trick for changing talkgroups. I am a happy camper. :)

Steve,
Thanks so much for the info.  I actually figured it out BEFORE I saw your post, but I do appreciate your input.  Now if I can figure out how to dynamically change the talkgroup with DTMF commands I'll be set.   I had a script that would change the talkgroup using DTMF commands when I was using MMDVM_Bridge, now I need something similar for STFU.


Re: I'm stumped....

Tim - KX4ZU
 

OK, I think I figured it out.   I had to update my Analog_Bridge.ini to match the STFU txPort, rxPort and txTg parameters from DVSwitch.ini.  Once I had those parameters in sync with the DVSwitch.ini, things started working.

Now I need to figure out how to change the talkgroup using DTMF commands.  On to the next challenge. :)


Re: I'm stumped....

Steve N4IRS
 

DVSwitch.ini          Analog_Bridge.ini
[STFU]                [AMBE_AUDIO]

txPort  = 36100  -->  
rxPort = 31100       
rxPort  = 36103  <--   txPort = 31103        

Above are the default port numbers for STFU and Analog_Bridge. The TX port in one app must match the RX port in the other app. Same for RX port and TX port.
You can change either file. Since you are just going to run STFU, I would edit the entry for STFU in /opt/MMDVM_Bridge/DVSwitch.ini

Well, I'm trying to get STFU working.  As I understand it STFU replaces MMDVM_Bridge, so have stopped MMDVM_Bridge from running.   When I start STFU, it appears to login into the Brandmeister server successfully.  When I key up on the specified talkgroup from a DMR radio, I see entries in the log, but I hear no audio from my Allstar node. When I key up the Allstar node, no audio is heard and no entries show up in the STFU log.   I haven't been able to find much on the STFU configuration, so if someone could point me to some instructions or a tutorial I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is an excerpt from the STFU log showing the successful login and the entries from the DMR radio key up:
