Show me everything from apt-get update through apt-get install mmdvm-bridge.

Lito,
MMDVM_Bridge it a Partner program capable of supporting all of the modes used in the various MMDVM networks.
This is a section of MMDVM.ini

[DMR]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 35103                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 35100                  ; Port to listen on (import)
Slot = 1                        ; Export slot

; Configure the Yaesu Fusion Partner
; Audio format is AMBE 72 bit
; Audio format is IMBE 88 bit
[YSF]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 35100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 35103                  ; Port to listen on (import)
FallbackID = 3113042            ; In case we can not find a valid DMR id in the database, export this one
ExportTG = 3166                 ; Which TG to export
Slot = 1                        ; Export slot


Each stanza contains the information unique to importing and exporting data to another Partner (stanza)
You point a TXPort of one mode at the RXPort of the mode you want to connect to. I have bolded the changes.

The DMR TXPort now points to the YSF RXPort (35103)
The YSF TXPort now points to the DMRRXPort (35100)

Think crossover cable.
Input to output, RX to TX
output to input, TX to RX

Now we need to enable and configure the 2 modes you want to use.
Use the MMDVM_Bridge to enable and configure the modes just like you would in MMDVM.ini
In the case of YSFn <-> DMR your life is easier since neither mode needs a gateway to communicate.

Point the YSF mode in MMDVM_Bridge.ini at your YSF reflector
Point the DMR mode in MMDVM_Bridge.ini at BM.

Hope this helps,
73, Steve N4IRS

Yes, you would need one copy of Analog_Bridge. Thus the name.

MMDVM_Bridge will bridge "like" or compatible modes. So
AMBE modes:
DMR

YSFn

IMBE modes:
P25
YSFw

So, what is missing from this list? D-Star. D-Star is odd man out. It's not compatible with any of the other modes. So, it must be transcoded. Analog_Bridge will encode / decode DMR using md380-emu. For D-Star you need a hardware vocoder.

The transcoder is simply a back to back configuration of 2 copies of Analog_Bridge. One operating in DMR mode and one operating in D-Star mode. MMDVM_Bridge can handle the connection to DMR and D-Star (ircDDBGateway)

It would look something like this:

BM <-> MMDVM_Bridge <-> Analog_Bridge <-> Analog_Bridge <-> MMDVM_Bridge <->ircDDBGateway
The two MMDVM_Bridges can be a single instance.

The same idea would go for a DMR to P25. Transcoding required.

Hi All,

Does mmdvm-bridge literally 'bridge' all supported mmdvm modes? If yes, does it require additional hardware? I'm aware of md380-emu but I thought D-Star required physical hardware... Perhaps I've got the wrong end of the stick.

Either way, thanks for the continued innovation and patience with all the questions!

Analog_Bridge uses USRP to transport analog_audio and signaling to and from AllStarLink. If you can get Zello or TeamSpeak to talk USRP...

So, what is missing from this list? D-Star. D-Star is odd man out. It's not compatible with any of the other modes. So, it must be transcoded. Analog_Bridge will encode / decode DMR using md380-emu. For D-Star you need a hardware vocoder.

The transcoder is simply a back to back configuration of 2 copies of Analog_Bridge. One operating in DMR mode and one operating in D-Star mode. MMDVM_Bridge can handle the connection to DMR and D-Star (ircDDBGateway)

It would look something like this:

BM <-> MMDVM_Bridge <-> Analog_Bridge <-> Analog_Bridge <-> MMDVM_Bridge <->ircDDBGateway
The two MMDVM_Bridges can be a single instance.

The same idea would go for a DMR to P25. Transcoding required.

Hi All,

Does mmdvm-bridge literally 'bridge' all supported mmdvm modes? If yes, does it require additional hardware? I'm aware of md380-emu but I thought D-Star required physical hardware... Perhaps I've got the wrong end of the stick.

Either way, thanks for the continued innovation and patience with all the questions!

I am new to this group and I was wondering if there is any backgroud info on what you are doing.  I am responsible for a repeater system with multiple analog FM repeaters linked by RF and one each DMR, Fusion and D-STAR repeater.
The main thing I am trying to figure out the options to bridge our analog network with the DMR Brandmeister network.
Thanks for any pointers.

I will change the login to a repeater ID and see if it resolves the repeater ID.

I am going to make some changes to the DVSwitch repositories on Wednesday, to better align naming and distributions. One of the questions I have been getting is why jessie and not stretch. My thoughts were that a lot of the people installing Quantar_Bridge were coming from a existing P25NX install and that is built on Jessie, this made sense. Well, it's not necessary. I also chose a bad name for the metapackage. The name I chose was dvswitch. It's a good name for a metapackage but not a good name for the Quantar_Bridge metapackage. so by about about 3 PM eastern Wednesday the packages will be:
1: Available for ARM, i386 and AMD64
2: ARM and i386 will run on Jessie and Stretch
3: AMD64 will run on Debain AMD64 and Ubuntu AMD64
3: All packages will be in the stretch repository
The available packages are:
dvswitch_base, Analog_Bridge, md380-emu, MMDVM_Bridge, P25Gateway, P25Parrot and P25Reflector.
The metapackages will be named dvswitch and quantar.
dvswitch will contain:
dvswitch_base, Analog_Bridge, md380-emu and MMDVM_Bridge
quantar will contain:
dvswitch_base, MMDVM_Bridge, P25Gateway, P25Parrot and P25Reflector

After installing the repository, you will install either dvswitch or quantar or both

I hope this make sens and will make thing easier for people.
