Is Brandmeister no longer accepting DVswitch connections??


DMR Master Not Connected

Frank C. D'Amato
 

My DV switch has been working fine for the past 3 months.  Today, my DVSwitch dashboard shows DMR Master not connected.

When I log into my brandmeister account the hotspot does not show connected.

Yes it's possible (I'm doing it as a subset of a much bigger system). 
Easiest path is to use an AllStar node with Echolink capability
configured linked to Analog_Bridge and MMDVM_Bridge, talking to your YSF
Reflector.

It is possible to use SvxLink with svxbridge, instead of AllStar, but
this is a significantly more difficult path, I'd go with ASL..

Yes, I have a principle of doing as little as possible with the audio,
and that principle goes back to the early days of EchoIRLP (way back in
2002-2003), where I theorised that it should be possible to pass traffic
from Echolink to IRLP without decompressing the audio, which others were
able to implement in code.  This became a feature of EchoIRLP and the
shared IRLP/Echolink conferences in use today.

I was unaware of the Codec2 server. This should make things a whole
lot easier. M17Gateway exists as a 'beta', in the sense that it's not
completely tested.
Yep, why reinvent the wheel, when all you need to do is bolt an existing
wheel onto your new axle? :)

https://github.com/g4klx/M17Gateway

I think we have the parts, we just need a plan to put them together.
I have a feeling you're right.

Re: Emulator timed out on encode!

Steve N4IRS
 

These are the settings for you to look at:

[GENERAL]

; General vocoder setup information
decoderFallBack = false            ; Allow software AMBE decoding if a hardware decoder is not found
useEmulator = false                ; Use the MD380 AMBE emulator for AMBE72 (DMR/YSFN/NXDN)
emulatorAddress = 127.0.0.1:2470   ; IP address and port of the md380 server

[DV3000]
;address = 127.0.0.1               ; IP address of AMBEServer
;rxPort = 2471                     ; Port of AMBEServer
address = /dev/ttyUSB0             ; Device of DV3000U on this machine
baud = 460800                      ; Baud rate of the dongle (230400 or 460800)
serial = true                      ; Use serial=true for direct connect or serial=false for AMBEServer


You are not set to use the emulator or fall back to the vocoder built into Analog_Bridge
You are setup to use a hardware vocoder plugged into the USB port

If this is not what you want, fix the settings above.

Re: M17 to ASL

 

Yep, that sounds reasonable.  The Codec2 server already exists, might as well make use of what's already out there.

The Codec2 server is used in DMRStation project:

[codec2]
codec2ServerHost=127.0.0.1

So it looks like similar in Analog_Bridge
