ASL ><DMR /DVswitch Audio jitter - port problem ?


Mike KB8JNM
 
Edited

Well after thinking I had this under wraps, and connecting to a busy TG,
I found it was tx-ing the channel.(got some hate mail)

Scope back trough the docs and files, found a port mismatch.
But, after that, has such terrible audio on rx, not manageable.

It sounds like a port conflict to me but I can't find it.
I had check the tx audio with a friend and herd it back through his phone. Perfect.

So... out of hair on this one for 8 hours or more !
But it sounds really like something else in my network is causing the issue.  ???

What hardware are you running on?
Please show us your [USRP] stanza

good grief...
That seems to have fixed it.... but I did try it that way. Perhaps when my ports were incorrect.

Seems to be working nicely.

Mike,

I am interested in your USRP configuration. 
The Ettus chassis, the RF Daugherboard, etc

you can email me off list. KC9KKO@...

Well if it ain't broke, you never learn anything.

I have but one more issue that kept me up the night.

Running on BM TG's, I found if I connect to a quite group (no activity) everything is just fine.
As soon as I switch to a goup with activity, dvswitch/the virtual private node beginds to transmit on its own on the network, holding it up.

The mmdvm bridge /L5 data is the only log file I see that shows something that I am trying yet to understand.
But I can see the activity from BM's self care board. Get plenty of hate mail from it LOL.
This section of the log shows where I switched TG's twice I think.
It seems to be generated perhaps/guessing? by the public connected node but I have striped it away as much as I can of anything in telemetry but perhaps I'm missing something. But I am wondering if there is a direct way to know when dvswitch is txing on the dmr side.
I feel a little lost as I have no way of knowing when I am creating problems.

If I had to guess, I would say you are repeating the DMR traffic back. I suggest this as a DMR ASL node https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/allstarlink/wiki/home
In MMDVM_Bridge log:
M: 2018-06-12 08:52:37.928 DMR, TX state = OFF

M: 2018-06-12 08:52:40.650 DMR, TX state = ON

Well if it ain't broke, you never learn anything.

I have but one more issue that kept me up the night.

Running on BM TG's, I found if I connect to a quite group (no activity) everything is just fine.
As soon as I switch to a goup with activity, dvswitch/the virtual private node beginds to transmit on its own on the network, holding it up.

The mmdvm bridge /L5 data is the only log file I see that shows something that I am trying yet to understand.
But I can see the activity from BM's self care board. Get plenty of hate mail from it LOL.
This section of the log shows where I switched TG's twice I think.
It seems to be generated perhaps/guessing? by the public connected node but I have striped it away as much as I can of anything in telemetry but perhaps I'm missing something. But I am wondering if there is a direct way to know when dvswitch is txing on the dmr side.
I feel a little lost as I have no way of knowing when I am creating problems.
