Re: MMDVM boards (BI7JTA&VR2VYE), raspberry PI case

DRPi-3.5NSX case for Raspberry Pi 4B, 3 B+ That case is for common MMDVM_HS boards (ZUMspot or JUMBOspot) If you reread his post he says he has a MMDVM, and mentioned having pots (which ZUMspot or JUMBOspot don't have), and he is running a repeater, not a hotspot, so I believe he is wanting a case ...

Re: Wpa supplicant kills

Can someone tell me what the reason is? That is the proper operation of how the system works. If the file exists in the /boot area it moves the settings to the OS and overwrites any previous settings. If it isn't connecting to your router it could be that your router is not setup for WPA2, or you h...

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...
