usrpAudio = AUDIO_UNITY
tlvAudio = AUDIO_UNITY

adjust usrpGain < Controls Audio from Allstar
       tlvAudio < Controls Audio from DMR

change those 2 from AUDIO_UNITY to AUDIO_USE_GAIN
then adjust accordingly for the volume you want

These lines were not in my Analog_Bridge.ini file.  There were tlv and usrp entries that were similar....messing with those, but so far, no increase in DMR audio into the TG.

This is a setup of two analog VHF and UHF repeaters with the intent of adding a DMR talkgroup through a cloud server.  It works, but DMR audio coming out to the TG from the repeaters are very low.

Hi Skyler,
Happy Thanksgiving!

I'd like to get 3 of those UHF data radios. 
Let me know about payment.  Will CDM programming software work?

Hi all, I have some Motorola VRM-850 radios available on sale for Black Friday. These are single channel data radios capable of running all digital modes if you wire it up to a board like the repeater builder STM32DVM.

They are $75 through Monday or until I run out of stock. The radios are capable of running between 440-450 MHz and I will program the channel in for you. I will include a little instruction sheet for wiring up to the MMDVM boards.

Re: DVSwitch Server (and Pi-Star Hotspot) Dropouts When Network Watchdog Expires #mmdvm_bridge

Joe Hussey
 

Appears to be fixed in DMR mode by changing Jitter Value from default 360 to 1000 (See  DVSwitch MMDVM_Bridge.ini [DMR Network] and P-Star Configuration > Expert > MMDVMHost > DMR Network).  Have not found a work around for other modes (YSF, etc.).

YSF to NXDN with YSFn & YSFw

Bill N2WNS
 

I'm looking to bridge YSF to NXDN but I'm looking to support both YSFn and YSFw. There are Yaesu radios can't send WIDE until it receives a WIDE signal and I want to make sure I can support that. Does someone have an example of this? I'm thinking that I have to use AB for this.

Thanks.


Re: DMR Volume low

Brad N8PC
 

Yes in the Analog_Bridge.ini file in the /opt/Analog_Bridge Directory look for the following lines and change it to this.
it will give you what your looking for.

dmrAudio = AUDIO_USE_GAIN                 ; Audio from ASL (AUDIO_UNITY, AUDIO_USE_GAIN, AUDIO_BPF)
dmrGain = 0.50                          ; Gain factor of audio from ASL (0.0-1.0)

DVSwitch Server (and Pi-Star Hotspot) Dropouts When Network Watchdog Expires #mmdvm_bridge

Joe Hussey
 

 
DVSwitch server (and Pi-Star Jumbo Hotspot) experiencing dropouts that coincide with "network watchdog has expired" error reported in MMDVM log files. Dropouts appear to be random. Any suggestions on a cause, where I should look next or a possible solution?

This "may" have coincided with my recent change in ISP (new router, etc.) from AT&T to Starry Internet.

Yeah, Sorry I had just got home from work and noticed it was down. It should be connected to 3104 but it's not showing anything on the dashboard. I connected to the node and did a transmission and nothing came over DMR. The Brandmeister dashboard shows the ID connected

At 1:55 am I was sleeping.  Is it still pointed to 3104?  I can check in a few hours.

Hello Wayne from Wellington New Zealand.

I have the same loss of DMR Master connection when using DMR Plus IPSC2.
It stays connected for some hours or days but sometimes disappears from my DVS dashboard.
I use the DVSM [* & 0] function to establish it again.
Funny thing is that it appears to still put traffic to the New Zealand IPSC2 server even though
the dashboard says it's not connected.
NXDN, D-Star and YSF do not go missing except for an internet "blip" when I sometimes
need to reconnect all of them.
DVS is such excellent software and if drop of DMR Master is the only thing wrong then I live with it.
There might be a fix sometime or it's caused by bad net from time to time and nothing to do with DVS.
Here is my dashboard: http://zl2tws-dvs.ddns.net

Best 73 and good DV to all. John ZL2TWS

Then I wonder if it's just a DVSwitch Dashboard display issue and the web interface is looking for the initial handshake vs a retry

I went back 5 days on the logs and the last entry on 3102 was

Nov 18 18:39:58 dmrxbm Master 3102[908289]: Connection of MMDVM Host system 310022399 (3.144.15.211) removed

Prior to that everything was fine and you didn't lose connection at all.

since that time you have been connected to 3104 and never skipped a beat there either, other than one simple service restart I did over the weekend, and you were connected right back within 30 seconds.  As I see it there was no issues at all.It never lost connection except for the time I restarted a service and when you moved it from 3102 to 3104.  I never even saw it on 3103.

I have zero record of you on 3103
