It doesn't matter. It doesn't cause any problems.

Re: I have to reimage my SD card after unplugging

Anyone have this experience and what did you do to fix it. It is probably an incompatible or counterfeit SD card. All SD cards are not the same, some just don't work and some can corrupt themselves over time. I have a 32 gig patriot card that works fine in every device I've tried it in except for a...

Re: cron questions.

KE7FNS the command you gave me didn't work. I have been editing /etc/crontab. I still don't find any cron logs anywhere. Andy, are there any? If so, where. I don't know why it wouldn't of worked unless you didn't enter it correctly. One possible issue is there needs to be a newline character at the...

Re: BrandMaster Talk Group Black List

If a talkgroup is blocked at the network, the repeater itself would continue to repeat the 'blocked' TG locally and all associated timers (TG hold, mode hold etc...) would still be in play, correct? I don't know about it repeating locally, but as for the other stuff I don't think so. If that's the ...

Re: BrandMaster Talk Group Black List

Here's my vote for the ability to do this! The ability already currently exists. Contact BM and have them block the talkgroups you want permanently blocked on your repeater. What the OP is actually requesting is that blacklisting be done in the software and not at the BM network level so that he ca...

Re: cron questions.

1. where are the cron logs? /var/log/syslog 2. how do I setup a cron job to reboot my system a 3 am daily? First you should be editing /etc/crontab and not run the command "sudo crontab -e". Pi-Star has a system wide crontab installed. The format for the system wide crontab is: (you'll no...

Re: BrandMaster Talk Group Black List

well since we are talking about my flawed ideas, the idea of you saying no one would be interested is just not true. No, that isn't what I said, what I said was if you posted a request on the MMDVMHost github its going to be welcomed with the sound of crickets and I don't think the developers respo...

Re: BrandMaster Talk Group Black List

Please take this into consideration as I am sure there are many users that would benefit and appreciate this as a feature. Pi-Star is an assembly of software, any blocking of talkgroups would have to be done inside the software responsible, in this case MMDVMHost. Your request really belongs in the...

Me either, I've had a Pi-Star hotspot running 24/7 for at least two years and have never had any issues with it.

I suspect that somehow the SD card gets corrupted, and maybe it is caused by the user not properly shutting down the OS before pulling the power.

Re: change to screen layout

how come it was changed? It was changed because MMDVMHost was changed. and is it possible to revert. No. Any changes that anyone makes to that suite of software get pushed to all Pi-star users whether they like it or not, its not something Pi-Star has any control over. Its frustrating because some ...
