BrandMeister to XLX

How can I bridge a TG xxx DMR from Brandmeister to a Reflector XLX xxx Room X DMR?
please.
Would there be any way to incorporate this possibility in the MMDVM_Bridge?
Thank you.

Yes, it's possible to do this. It would take 2 instances of MMDVM_Bridge. One connected to BM and the second connected to XLX. Each MMDVM_Bridge would need to be in a separate directory so that each MMDVM_Bridge would have a local copy of DVSwitch.ini and MMDVM_Bridge.ini

As always, buld from the outside in. Connect the first MMDVM_Bridge to BM. Make sure it's logging in properly and receiving data from BM. The connect the second MMDVM_Bridge to XLX. Make sure it's logging in and receiving data.

Point the DMR TX and RX port at the XLX RX and TX ports. Traffic should pass from XLX to BM. Run each program in the foreground so you can watch waht is happening.

Ok, but for connect a XLX, need Initial Room Select? How do it?

Steve N4IRS
 

How would you do it with a MMDVM?

With MMDVM, I have to connect through DMRGateway.

But yes, MMDVM_Bridge available functions automatic select Inicital Room, it is fine.

Steve N4IRS
 

My first guess is you will need to add DMRGateway. MMDVM_Bridge will connect to a server exactly like MMDVMHost, so if you can do it with MMDVMHost, you can do it with MMDVM_Bridge.
Is there information on how to connect to a XLX room with DMRGateway available?

 also if you could add selection option in the section of DMR, DVSwicth.ini, Select the TG you want to bridge.
This would be magnificent.

I moved this discussion to the topic "

BrandMeister to XLX"

Yes information it in https://github.com/g4klx/DMRGateway/blob/master/DMRGateway.ini
The idea is

MMDVM_Bridge (connect BM can Select TG for example 21461) <-> MMDVM_Bridge1 (connect XLX 051 Room G for example).
But for all it, any need add DMRGateway.
Need MMDVM_Bridge have available select TG de BM and available connect XLX to Room Specific.

Steve N4IRS
 

We can look at it but for now, use DMRGateway with MMDVM_Bridge.

Ok, perfect, many thx.
I will do tests with DMRGateway to see if it works. And I inform him.

It would be a great advance that from MMDVM_Bridge we have the option of passing all the connection traffic bm or being able to select ONLY the Traffic of a TG in particular.

Steve N4IRS
 

You can control the traffic from BM with the selfcare account for that Repeater ID / Callsign.

Ok, perfect, but yes i connect a server HBLINK, how can select only one tg parcitular?
It very important, can available select all traffic or only one or two tg from mmdvm_bridge.
Many thx Steve.
Congratulations for great work.

I would like to do this.  Can the MMDVM_Bridge instances run on the same PC? as XLX or would something like port conflicts cause a problem?

Ken,
I don't see why you could not run both on the same hosts. MMDVM_Bridge would allow you to change any of the port numbers to resolve any port conflicts.

i would think you might be able to run a "new instance" with different ports.
Where would the conflict be. Or are you suggesting you would be able to do this under the 'same instance' ?

Steve N4IRS
 

I was just looking at the question of running MMDVM_Bridge on the same host as XLX. If I understand XLX properly, he would need 2 instances.
XLX <-> MMDVM_Bridge1 <-> MMDVM_Bridge2 <-> BM

Basically, use 2 instances of MMDVM_Bridge to both act as clients to their respective servers.

Hi Steve, 

Reading through the thread here, would your scenario eliminate the need for an AMBE chip between them then?

Lito

Steve N4IRS
 

AMBE chip(s) is needed when bridging 2 unlike modes.
DMR, YSFn, NXDN no vocoder needed between these 3 modes. They are all AMBE
P25 YSFw  no vocoder needed between these 2 modes . They are IMBE
 D-Star needs a vocoder to go to any other mode. D-Star <-> D-Star does not need a vocoder.

So two channels are required per transcoded module? Is there a way to maximize usage where if a transcoder is free, a module would be able to utilize it?
