Thanks for your reply, Mike.

I went to the Files section on the site and downloaded this:

https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/main/files/Draft%20DMRGateway%20Install%20notes.odt

As I stated in my original message, all goes well until I get to the point where it says:

   4: Copy the proper version of DMRG to the destination directory. Execute cp DMRGateway.armv7 /opt/DMRGateway/ DMRGateway


I don't have a DMRGateway.armv7 file to copy in that directory, nor in any other directory in /srv/DMRGateway

Thanks, Frank.  Will see the video and the other one he has on setting up the Allstar node.

If you are a visual learner check out this YouTube video it worked great for me. The narrator also refers to the document.

I have been trying to install DVSwitch but following the document "Draft DMRGateway Install Notes", when I get to the Install and test DMRGateway part I can't go beyond point 3 as the file in point 4 does not exist.  Is there a revised document I can follow?

I also tried the

Any complete, correct set of instructions I can find to get this set up?

Re: Bridge Brandmeister to TGIF?

If that’s something the network operators (TGIF and BM) wanted to do, they’d probably have already done it. Cross-connecting one of the big networks to the other is a great way to get yourself into big trouble with them.

Re: Is this even possible?

Cort N0MJS <n0mjs@...>
 

When I started this, there was DMRlink – MMDVM didn’t yet exist. After I wrote HBlink, I still developed on DMRlink first, and then ported changes to HBlink, but have kept pretty good parity between both of them.

As of now, I’d say the best determining factor would be what kind of repeaters do you have more of? Motorola or MMDVM? That’s the advice I typically give. If you’re predominantly a Motorola operation, then use DMRlink’s confbridge.py as the main hub; if MMDVM, then use hb_confbridge.py.

But this is about to change. Going forward, now that HBlink has OpenBridge support, HBlink will be what gets developed first – and at some point, I may even sunset further development on DMRlink applications (e.g. confbridge.py). Using multiple IPSC connections to a c-Bridge to pick up TGIDs (or multiple HBP connections to Brandmeister, etc.) is cumbersome. OpenBridge allows “server-to-server” type access to Brandmeister, DMR-MARC and DMR+, and that’s my reason for shifting primary development (and there’s about to be quite a bit of it) to HBlink first.

I’d like to see a few improvements in IPSC_Bridge, and hopefully can contribute to them. Even on K0USY Group’s systems, it looks like the future will be trading out our XPR series repeaters for MMDMV-based ones, or putting a “backpack” on each one (SBC running IPSC_Bridge/HB_Bridge) and converting them all to Homebrew at the repeater site. I’ll likely keep one XPR for DMRlink development, but that’s probably it.

P.S. - if anyone is in the market for lightly used (I run the power at 25W on them and NEVER burn up PAs that way) K0USY Group will soon have a number of XPR8300s and XPR8400s available for sale or trade for MTR2000s.

I’ve spent quite a lot of time today working with IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge, and now have the simplest possible setup I could do.  I’ve passed audio traffic through from end to end in both directions, but have some issues still.

MMDVM Repeater <-> HB_Bridge <-> IPSC_Bridge <-> K4USD cBridge

TS1: TG8802
TS2 TG3151

So far, it all looks good, but I have a few concerns.  Earlier today, I was having a QSO over 8802 via the MMDVM repeater, when it stopped making it through the pipeline all the way to K4USD.  I wasn’t able to determine where it was failing, and switched to a direct RF link to a known operational repeater to finish the QSO.

I eventually decided it must’ve been an errant talkgroup from the cBridge, and sent the list of talkgroups I’ve been receiving unsolicited to the cBridge maintainer, and he fixed that when he got home tonight.  So now I’m sitting down and testing again.

Just a couple of minutes ago, I heard a ham call out on the 8802 talkgroup via the radio connected to the known good repeater (40+ miles away), but the HT listening to the benchtop repeater had no audio output at all.  Everything else looked normal, the pi-star dashboard showed the contact, that TX was occurring, etc.  The AnyTone 878 showed the contact information, talkgroup, etc, and updated the last call info after he finished talking.

Here’s the output from IPSC_Bridge:

INFO 2018-11-23 23:54:31,694 Voice Transmission Start on TS 1 and TG 8802 (8802) from 3121792 (3121792)

Now that loss rate from IPSC_Bridge worried me when I first discovered it, but since I was actually passing audio both ways earlier today when it was happening, I figured it wasn’t worth worrying about, probably just mis-reporting.  Notice how it’s always 3 out of however many. Always.  But now I wonder if it’s indicative of a problem I should track down.

Any ideas what I should check next?

In terms of setting up confbridge, which is preferred to work with, the one in dmrlink or the one in hblink?  Ultimately, I want one of those to be the primary decision maker in the “center” of it all.  With the link to BM being the most number of talkgroups, I’m leaning towards the hblink one as the one to use.

I've reached the point where I need someone with experience with these tools to point me in the right direction.  I think I am getting overwhelmed with too much "there's more than one way to do it" combined with not knowing the limitations of the various branches of dmrlink and hblink (IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge specifically).

I have the need to connect 2 repeaters up to 2 different networks simultaneously.  One repeater is Mototrbo/IPSC and the other is MMDVM/Pi-Star.  One of the networks is a cBridge, and the other is Brandmeister.

On the IPSC repeater, the requirement is to have TS1 TG8802 and TS2 TG3151 by default, with TG8802 sourced from the cBridge, and TG3151 sourced from either the cBridge or Brandmeister.  I can get it from either source, but TG8802 is only from the cBridge due to policy.  The part that makes it difficult for me to know how to implement it is that the repeater owner wants TS1 to share with "any possible" BM TG, with a PTT setup with 15 minute timeout to revert to TG8802.

On the MMDVM repeater, the requirement is to have TS1 TG8802 and TS2 TG3151 by default.  Again, TG8802 sourced from the cBridge, and TG3151 from either.  The repeater owner on this one is me, and I'd rather have my PTT groups on TS2, and I don't necessarily care if it is "any possible" BM TG or simply a predefined subset.

Eventually, we might add additional DMR repeaters into the mix, and have different requirements for them.

I've started with a pristine install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, updated it, added Steve's DVSwitch-System-Builder script, and followed its directions.

Any suggestions for the best way to implement the system as described, or as closely as possible?

Thanks in advance,

Now that loss rate from IPSC_Bridge worried me when I first discovered it, but since I was actually passing audio both ways earlier today when it was happening, I figured it wasn’t worth worrying about, probably just mis-reporting.  Notice how it’s always 3 out of however many. Always.  But now I wonder if it’s indicative of a problem I should track down.

Any ideas what I should check next?

In terms of setting up confbridge, which is preferred to work with, the one in dmrlink or the one in hblink?  Ultimately, I want one of those to be the primary decision maker in the “center” of it all.  With the link to BM being the most number of talkgroups, I’m leaning towards the hblink one as the one to use.

Thanks,
Jim

I've reached the point where I need someone with experience with these tools to point me in the right direction.  I think I am getting overwhelmed with too much "there's more than one way to do it" combined with not knowing the limitations of the various branches of dmrlink and hblink (IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge specifically).

I have the need to connect 2 repeaters up to 2 different networks simultaneously.  One repeater is Mototrbo/IPSC and the other is MMDVM/Pi-Star.  One of the networks is a cBridge, and the other is Brandmeister.

On the IPSC repeater, the requirement is to have TS1 TG8802 and TS2 TG3151 by default, with TG8802 sourced from the cBridge, and TG3151 sourced from either the cBridge or Brandmeister.  I can get it from either source, but TG8802 is only from the cBridge due to policy.  The part that makes it difficult for me to know how to implement it is that the repeater owner wants TS1 to share with "any possible" BM TG, with a PTT setup with 15 minute timeout to revert to TG8802.

On the MMDVM repeater, the requirement is to have TS1 TG8802 and TS2 TG3151 by default.  Again, TG8802 sourced from the cBridge, and TG3151 from either.  The repeater owner on this one is me, and I'd rather have my PTT groups on TS2, and I don't necessarily care if it is "any possible" BM TG or simply a predefined subset.

Eventually, we might add additional DMR repeaters into the mix, and have different requirements for them.

I've started with a pristine install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, updated it, added Steve's DVSwitch-System-Builder script, and followed its directions.

Any suggestions for the best way to implement the system as described, or as closely as possible?

Thanks in advance,
