Re: pi star image

RC = Release CAndidate -- not needed now -- current version is Pi-Star_RPi_V4.1.2_20-May-2020.zip Jumbospots are generally a STM32_MMDVM Pi Hat (GPIO), or very similar wording but you do need to set the Dosplay to OLED (Type 3 for the smaller screen aor Type 6 for the bigger OLED screen befor the MM...

Re: Saving the Pi-Star Image on Linux Mint 20

I use Win32DiskImager on my windows 10 but there is Balena ETcher that does the same thing -- many say to use that. Never worked right for me on Win10 But in Mint, it may work. Just look through your Package Manager for it or google Balena Etcher and go to their website to get help using that.

Re: Connecting to Pi-Star using Linux Mint 20

Couple things to try is drop .locah e.g http://pi-star/ If you can sewe the dashboard on another computer then go to the Configuration -> pi-star / raspberry (if asked) -> scroll to bottom. If you are on Wifi with this hotspot the IP will show up in the box -- If you are wired then you need to go to...

Re: DMR2YSF

I have an idea but will probably be told I am talking out my @$$, but ... 1 - Are you using DMR2YSF straight (meaning you don't want anything BUT YSF) or the DMR Gateway? If DMR2YSF straight 100290 should have worked -- Try 100390 -- They are both AmericaLink IIRC but 390 sounds better(AmericaLink Y...

Re: Does Wires-X passthrough do anything on DMR2YSF mode?

Not a guru , but I don't think so as in a DMR radio you need a channel set to use a talkgroup so Wires-X Passthrough has no meaning In DMR if you use DMR2YSF and only DMR to YSF the TG numbers are the 5 digit room numbers for YSF or 100XXX for FCS rooms. If you use the DMR Gateway with the Crossover...

Re: DMR ID,..

OK that was a REALLY BAD idea -- when posting your config files, SANITIZE THE PASSWORDS - you copy/pasted in here with your brandmeister hotspot security password -- I suggest you change it NOW! Anyways yes there is, look on the regular config screen and under the DMR section in brandmeiister and DM...

Re: adding DMR gateway stops trafic to default branmaister !

No, DMR+ is just a diferent type network. As for masters, that is beyond my knowledge.

Re: adding DMR gateway stops trafic to default branmaister !

Not sure if this is a help, In your OTHER pose about Brandmeister you were told to check Air-Security and Hotspot security. Which you said fixed where your hotspot showed GREEN but Brandmeister never saw uou as online. Well if you went from straight Brandmeister Master to DMRGateway, you have to set...

Re: Jumbo Hot Spot defaults to TG 91

Best posted in the DMR specific board but: Short answer is nothing - you are doing nothing wrong. Pi-Star hotspots have a "feature" called pseudo-static where it remembers the last talkgroup you transmitted on, so if you had a power outage or sim,ply turn you hotspots off when not in use, the PiStar...

Re: Btech DMR-6x2 HT

With the post by @KE7FNS giving me a clue of why I'm a dufus and not using my brain, I fired up the MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat I had from a friend and flashed a new card. I found the modem to be the dual hat one by DB9MAT and crew/GPIO. I then did an MMDVMCAL and found the offset to be about -800 (got it dow...
