Re: Is it possible to bridge an FCS reflector to DMR? (2020) #mmdvm_bridge

Thanks Steve.

I've been playing with the setup Eric K6KWB suggested and I get a "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" error.

Stand by for snips...

Eric,
Happy to help by adding the steering. That is the value of this forum. Mike and I read the comment and problems. We try to address those type of "pain points" as we see them.
That is the value of this tight feedback loop.

Did you download from DVSwitch System Builder a complete package:

Looks like Steve have developed a new update to steer TGs in MB, will see how does it work, thank you Steve for this update. :)

HI,
I have a HBLINK and DVSWitch on the same VPS.
There are about 40 users oin the DVSWitch (not on same time hi)
Few users, has a bif noise when they try to receive anything. Others don't have that problem.
Anybody can help me to resolve that problem?
Anybody has already had that problem ?

Re: Problem of TalkerAlias in DVSwitch.in

Hi,
Short term answer, comment out TalkerAlias in DVSwitch.sh while we investigate the problem.

Hi All,


DVSwitch.in which is undated recently was added new "TalkerAlias" line in [DMR] and "Message" line [STAR] section each.

The function of the Message in [DSTAR] has no problem because the DSTAR do not use the DMR ID I think.

But the "TalkerAlias in [DMR] has some problems that the DMR id number of transmitting station is changed to another different one in several seconds. So the National DMR id also is changed to another different nation DMR. But the information having the TalkerAlias is correct. 


How can I overcome this problem?

Eric,

Thanks, I greatly appreciate the working sample and the URL for the system builder—that's awesome!

Need to make a few more instances of MB :P and put YSFGateway.

Should not have to. Will also allow you not to need DMRGateway for XLX

Yes you need two MB one connect to BM and one for YSF Gateway. Almost similar to the first one you create use YSF Gateway and select FCS.

Did you download from DVSwitch System Builder a complete package:

To connect to FCS, you will need to use YSFGateway. (today)

When I transmit to the TG, it looks like  MB sees it, but no audio on the other end.

Is it possible to bridge an FCS reflector to DMR? (2020) #mmdvm_bridge

I currently have a successful bridge between my YSF reflector to DMR through MMDVM_Bridge.

Re: Bridging XLX to BM DMR (New Way 2020) #mmdvm_bridge

Ernie,
If you are running your bridge on a Pi (armhf) we have added the ability to steer TGs (just like slots) in MB. I have pushed the change to github. See the added parameter in dvswitch.ini {DMR] stanza.
Try it if you want to.
