Re: P25Reflector

Steve N4IRS
 

In theory, yes. Not that we have tried. It would require a host that can "see" both reflectors. It would require 2 instances of MMDVM_Bridge.

To update or add P25Hosts and make them stay, the file you need to edit is /root/P25Hosts.txt. After you edit (and save) the file, run pistar-update and that makes the changes permanent. In /root you will see the files for the other local host files that you can add private hosts to as well.

Jim,
Yes, you will need a second instance of Analog_Bridge configured for P25 and pointed at a new node stanza. You will NOT need a second instance of MMDVM_Bridge. Enable P25 and P25Network in MMDVM_Bridge. Point the second Analog_Bridge.ini AMBE_AUDIO TX and RX ports at the default P25 RX and TX ports in DVSwitch.ini.

In short, MMDVM_Bridge can support more then one network. The only time you need a second instance of MMDVM_Bridge is when you need a second instance of a network already in use.

Re: DMR to DSTAR

Steve N4IRS
 

Mike,
So D-Star -> DMR works.. For that to work we know that all of the programs involved are running. To trouble shoot the other direction, follow the data. Since the problem is DMR -> D-Star, start at the DMR connection. When you have inbound DMR traffic, do you see it while running MMDVM_Bridge in the foreground? If not stop, your fist problem is there. Once you see the traffic on MMDVM_Bridge, start Analog_bridge in the foreground. Do you see the traffic arrive at Analog_Bridge? If not stop, your problem is there. Make sure the DMR TX port is pointing at the Analog_Bridge RX port. (in the [AMBE_AUDIO] stanza) Follow the data one program at a time. You should see it every step of the way. Run everything in the foreground.

I tried to do it all from MMDVM but since that didn't work I tried dmrlink.  Same problem.  The repeater can connect to the host program (MMDVM or dmrlink) but it will not talk to analog bridge... at least I don't see traffic on the terminal window.  In these files I am using DMRlink for the DMR and MMDVM for the Dstar.  There are two instances of Analog_Bridge:  1 for DMR, 1 for DStar (with Dstar suffix).  Note, due to earlier problems, perhaps unrelated, I am not currently using DVSwitch/MMDVM for DMR.  I opted to use DMRlink.

I even tried the md380-emu in place of ttyUSB0 for the DMR side but that didn't change anything so I don't think it's a hardware issue.

Do a apt-get update and a apt-get upgrade. Please report results after retesting Analog_Bridge on Jessie 64

I'll build a Analog_Bridge on Jessie64 (again?) I thought I did already. In the mean time, if you had one way audio Analog_bridge had to be working.

Well,
I think you need to double check the port assigned paths RX > TX & TX > RX

Re: I need help to setup a "Stand Alone DMR Master Server" (NO INTERNET)

Steve N4IRS
 

Adrian,
Yes, HBLink or DMRLink can do this. it depends on what your client is. MMDVM or Motorola repeater.
We have a subgroup dedicated to HBLink. You are welcome to join there also https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/HBlink
It's a new subgroup so there is not a lot of activity but we have 14 members subscribed.

Please don't misunderstand, this is the main group and all messages are welcome here. Your choice.

We are preparing a system builder script that will include all of the DVSwitch programs. This may make your task easier.

You would not want to have a single reflector pointed to by two different TGs. Since you can not share a reflector with other TGs. You would run a second instance of P25Reflector on a different port. Then add the second TG and port to P25Hosts.txt for P25Gateway.
