Re: LCD GPIO Display (no nextion)

Where do you plug in the MMDVM board with this display attached?

Re: TS1 radio button BM Manager

Note that you are interacting with BrandMeister here and NOT your hotspot. Regardless of which TS you select, BM reports back that it is adding the specified TG to "Slot 0". And for the moment, your simplex hotspot continues to receive TS1 and TS2 packets irrespective of the setting(s) AT BrandMeist...

Re: Customization of the channel/CC/Slot display line

Are simplex hotspots really hardwired for TS2 only or does it just seem that way? How do you get a simplex hotspot to listen to TS1 transmissions? (Is the "TS1" that shows up on your end an indication of the original/originating TS?)

Just some thoughts to consider when looking at all this.

Remote HOSTFILE cmd leaves system in RW state

The invocation of a HOSTFILE command via the Pi-Star Remote facility leaves the system in a RW state for extended periods thereafter. Yes, the system usually returns to an RO state after a while , but the system can remain vulnerable for 10 minutes or more after such a command and runs the risk of g...

Re: hidden ssid pi star can't find my network

You need to add a line "ssid_scan=1" to the appropriate network entry in order to connect to hidden wifi's.

Code: Select all

network={
        #ssid=...
        ssid=...
        scan_ssid=1
        #psk=...
        psk=...
          :
}

Re: Dashboard in iFrame ?

Have you taken a look at some of the work done here? Maybe there are some ideas there you could use to develop the kind of display you want: (Edit. moderator) links removed. This project isnt supported within these pages. It's developer has chosen not to make the changes to work with current release...

Re: DMRIds.dat updates not consistent across multiple hotspots

Not sure I want to tinker with the scheduling, as I'm not readily seeing any directions on how this might be accomplished or whether it's advisable. If, as you note, Cloudflare is proving problematic, shifting a batch process to another time frame may not be any more effective than my moving my brow...

Re: DMRIds.dat updates not consistent across multiple hotspots

This problem is occurring on the Pi 3's as well as the Pi-zeros, just not as often. Seems like the Pi 3's may fail one out of 10 days, while (conversely), the Pi-zeros may succeed one out of 10 days, roughly. This explains why I've seen callsigns show up on two different hotspots simultaneously but ...

Re: DMRIds.dat updates not consistent across multiple hotspots

So, modified the pistar-update file on one of my failing systems to see if I can trap some messages overnight: echo "Updating Hostfiles..." /usr/local/sbin/HostFilesUpdate.sh > /tmp/pistar-hostfile-update # /usr/local/sbin/HostFilesUpdate.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 echo "Done" It's only the DMRIds.dat file...

Re: DMRIds.dat updates not consistent across multiple hotspots

Thanks for confirming! Was thinking it might be just me and the particular configuration I have set up here, so it's good to know others are seeing the same thing(s). The more eyes we have on the problem... Agree the Pi-Zero angle is suspicious but doesn't make much sense. If they were a factor, you...
