Re: YSF Link Manager added to dashboard

I have not had any success getting the YSF manager to appear on the Admin page. I have tried setting the start up host to none without any success. I am running version 4.1.3 and I have both the Brandmeister Manager and the TGIF Manager up and running on the Admin page. Is this a feature that has b...

Re: Unable to upgrade firware to v1.5.2 on 7 hotspots

Also noticed you are using the -custom flash script, for me this works with the normal one without -custom

so run

sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatflash hs_dual_hat

assuming that you have 14.7456MHz TCXOs

Re: Unable to upgrade firware to v1.5.2 on 7 hotspots

Do you have the dual HAT's BOOT1 jumper bridged with solder? It being open is often the cause of this error.

Re: Unable to Switch Back to 'rpi-ro'

Looks like the python3-apt package updated and unlike the tzdata update a few days ago it requires a reboot.

3 out of my 4 PiStars have done this, must be down to the randomised timing of the updates so one of them missed it.

Re: Unable to Switch Back to 'rpi-ro'

sudo rpi-rw sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo rpi-ro Just FYI, you don't need to rpi-rw before you execute apt-get, the apt-get command gets intercepted and a script puts the system in RW, executes apt-get and then puts the system back in ro when done. Also, the new preferred metho...

Re: DMRIds.dat file not updating

OK, I had not noticed that, I haven't seen any particular evidence of IDs in the dashboard instead of callsigns recently. Yeah me either, I guess you have to be watching the dashboard like a hawk on a talkgroup where one of those 1080 new guys are making their first contact for it to matter so much...

Re: Unable to Switch Back to 'rpi-ro'

There is an unattended-upgrades package, it is designed to update security related packages on the RPi OS system, so it doesn't do everything. There are other ways of doing that, for instance using sudo pistar-update at an ssh terminal prompt, but if you do that then sometimes there will be packages...

Re: DMRIds.dat file not updating

The nightly download of DMR Ids has stalled at 181,116 entries and has remained at that count since 12/19 when RadioID.net and Ham.digital merged. Since that date, approximately 1,100 new entries have been posted through various registries (roughly 80-120 new entries are being created each day!). T...

Re: DMRIds.dat file not updating

I assume that both of you have done all the needed updates and upgrades? Andy recently changed the update timing to deconflict requests on the PiStar servers. This isn't something we have any control over. This is an issue where the data Andy is pulling is no longer being updated or it has been mov...
