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 ...

Re: Echolink & Pistar

What I am looking to achieve is to use the Pistar in FM mode as a client/host for Echolink. Currently that isn't possible, the FM is handled completely within the CPU on the MMDVM board, maybe in the future it might be possible to send the sampled audio to the RPi and then pass it to something so i...

Re: AutoAP disconnects after a few seconds / Captive Portal

What am I missing? I don't know, but using the AutoAP isn't really the proper way to do what you are wanting to do. What you want to do is create a wpasupplicant.conf file with both of your network information in it, and then it will scan in the order of their priority and connect to one if it resp...

Yes, they don't and some USB cables are poorly made and have a very large voltage drop. I had a cheap wall wart that would trigger a low voltage message during boot on a RPi 3B+.

I believe the OP is wanting to issue some sort of command from his radio and for it to speak this information to him or something. He probably doesn't have SSH access if he doesn't have access to the dashboard.

I doubt anyone has taken the time to design one, that board isn't a very common one compared to the usual ones you see on fleebay etc.

Re: 4.1.5 full ISO "Dstar network down"

The issue is because:

Code: Select all

ircddbUsername=M1ABC
and not the callsign of the hotspot operator.

To solve the issue, go into the expert editor for ircDDBGateway and set it to your legally assigned callsign.

Re: 4.1.5 full ISO "Dstar network down"

Sorry for the lack of clarity. If a FULL Install of 4.1.5 is done, that's when the D-star problem exhibits itself. What problem? See nobody has taken 5 minutes and has been able to provide enough information to identify the actual problem other than the vague "it doesn't work". It could b...

Reimage the SD card and restore your backup.
