YSFReflector bridged to DMR - No callsign on YSF clients #mmdvm_bridge

Andrew Lynch
 

I have successfully set up a YSFReflector, and linked to a TGIF DMR talkgroup. Audio passes between the two, and the DMR ID lookup based on the MYCALL in a given Yaesu radio is working (DMR side sees the proper DMR ID of the YSF user). However, I can't seem to get callsigns to display on the Yaesu radio. I am using a Pi-Star-powered hotspot (3.14.7 I think), and the Callsigns appear on both the OLED display and on the dashboard. That leads me to think it's my hotspot not sending it along with the voice. But, I don't remember this actually working anywhere on YSF. This is my first sysop experience with YSF - I've mostly just participated on DMR, but wanted to have the option of YSF as well.

Is this expected behavior (callsign doesn't make it to the radio) or am I missing a config somewhere? I don't have a second hotspot (...yet) that I can test (have 2 YSF clients on the YSFReflector) and haven't found a guinea pig yet.

Thanks!
-Andy, KDØIOE

the TGIF YSF2DMR bridge has mysteriously started working again.  update pistar and the host should be there.  I know that's not the answer to your question but you wont have to do this since its "mysteriously" started working.

Nope, this is a specific TG on the TGIF network, not the main one.

Andy,
What program are you using to line the reflector to the TG?

MMDVM_Bridge from YSF to DMR, no Analog_Bridge or anything in between.

OK,
Can you show me the log output when traffic is passing across the bridge?

It's the repository version: MMDVM_Bridge version 20180423 git #9cdea41

Perhaps I should compile from source?

Steve N4IRS
 

grab the latest binary from the bin directory and retest.

Will do, won't be until later since I don't have a YSF handy right now.

Appears to work with latest MMDVM_Bridge.

Are the dvswitch packages for Debian (this was Debian 10 "Buster") no longer the preferred method? 

Thanks,
-Andy

Steve N4IRS
 

They are, we just have been pushing to github for testing before they get packaged up for Debian.

I had the same version of MB and same problem. If I re-install DVSwitch will pick up the update? or simply apt-get update will work?

No,
We push the latest updates to github before I roll them up to the apt repository.
Go to <https://github.com/DVSwitch/MMDVM_Bridge/tree/master/bin> and find your version.
Then go to tmp and do this:
wget https://github.com/DVSwitch/MMDVM_Bridge/raw/master/bin/MMDVM_Bridge.what_is_your_hardware
mv MMDVM_Bridge.what_is_your_hardware to MMDVM_Bridge. Stop MMDVM_Bridge and replace the file.
