HI Steve,

Could not figure out why the callsign will not show up instead it is the DMR id....it was not like this before when I first started.

What I noticed was that I am missing this on the log:


I: 2020-05-15 07:06:48.383 Loaded 164301 Ids to the DMR callsign lookup table


DMR and Dstar will show the correct Callsign except for YSF, it will display the DMR ID.

Anything I am missing.

here is my set up

Hi Daren,

I just had the same issue. The fix is as follows on the command line as root (or use sudo).

wget http://dvswitch.org/ASL_Repository/dvswitch.gpg.key
apt-key add dvswitch.gpg.key

Cheers

Re: ARM IMAGE

Scott is right when I installed DVSwitch on the arch Linux, I use Pacman. However it doesn’t sound as good as it should. I was inspired this morning and installed DVSwitch On a running allstar node that was already up at Amazon‘s web service. It turns out that sounds very good using the 380 emulator. My only issue is now that there’s a delay going between the analog repeater and the digital repeaters due to brandmeister. Sometimes it even gets choppy. I would like to connect the DVDwitch right to a XLX server running at a different Amazon cloud does anyone know how to do that? I tried just changing the server address but it seems there must be more? Maybe port numbers?

I am seeing that Buster has been renamed to Raspbian Buster, is that the one to use to start the process of setting up DVswitch?

Re: Some questions about dvswitch.sh and Analog_Bridge

A transcoder should NEVER receive a tune command.  Use static TG info in your gateway and BM.
If you MUST have the DMR or P25 side tuneable, then the TLV tune should be directed at the MB instances that service the network.
This is happening because the tune command sent to AB is producing an info packet (as it should).  I will see if I can suppress these if the client has not "registered" (DVSM)


radioid.net URL update in dvswitch.sh

Jeffrey [K8JTK]
 

Monday noticed a couple issues on my system, D-STAR wasn't passing audio both ways and other mode dashboards were not populating the call signs (had the numeric DMR ID).

Running the update manually:
./dvswitch.sh update
parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 10
parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 10
parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 10
Error, DMR ID file does not seem to be valid

Not sure why my subscriber_ids.csv was empty if the download failed.  A manual curl to one of the urls in the "downloadDatabases" function presented me with a 302 document moved.

I saw on radioid.net they were changing their API location on July 1.

!! if you use the API or Data Dumps in scripts, modify your scripts before JULY 1st. New server for data: https://database.radioid.net !!

Maybe they meant June 1.  The 302 was pointing at the new API location.  I changed the download location for all 3 calls
from: www.radioid.net
to: database.radioid.net
Ran the update manually and all was well.

A pull of the DVSwitch-System-Builder has the old URL.  If an update is already available, it has the old url in that repo.


Re: ARM IMAGE

XLX does not do analog.  The reason those connections sound "perfect" is that they go from digital to digital.

When you go to analog - in particular Allstar - higher-frequency components of the DMR signal are just not encoded well at the 8k sampling rate and get distorted.   I don't know why, but Fusion in particular has a lot of energy in the range of 3500 Hz and that is a no-no for Allstar.  The AMBE modes use a vocoder - which can produce sound energy above what the Nyquist limit would dictate.  I guess they feel that emphasizing this part of the audio spectrum enhances intelligibility. But it is annoying when you go to a scheme that is encoding the audio (rather than vocoding it).
