MMDVMHost update

Post by LU5AGQ »

Hi Andy et all.

Do you have any ETA on updating MMDVMHost for Pi-Star?

I'm asking because I want to fully implement the FM mode (along with D-Star) on our repeater (a TKR-820 with Repeater Builder blue board) but even having the last MMDVM firmware installed on the board, we need to have the latest MMDVMHost running.

Many thanks for your time.

The current vers. Of MMDVMhost in pistar supports FM repeater mode. What isnt currently setup is the configuration pages for the mode. Add the lines shown below to your mmdvm.ini file and edit for your particular needs...

AckLevel=50
# Timeout=240

Hi Andrew, and thanks for your quick answer.

I've being using FM mode in Pi-Star since June when Jonathan added the branch on the MMDVM firmware, but unfortunately MMDVMHost-20200615_Pi-Star_v4 wich is the version I'm running (I think is the latest available) doesn't support some features like AccessMode, more info here: https://groups.io/g/OpenDV/message/530

Do you think there is a planned release for MMDVMHost for Pi-Star with the latest code from MMDVMHost? Or if there is a way to compile it on my own?

Many thanks.

Those are excellent questions!!

I'd like to know when an update is coming also. I would like to see some of the features that have been added.

I've looked at building my own MMDVMHost from the source code but Andy is definitely doing some modifications to the makefiles and maybe some of the source code somewhere.

I wish he would make those changes public so those of us who want to be up to date wouldn't have to sit around waiting for him to feed us and we could just take care of it ourselves. If he had used the source code without modification it wouldn't be an issue for someone to compile it on their own.
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.

Andy is clearly looking to release his version of MMDVM binaries, I don't know when but this is a placeholder for the code. At least, that's my take.

I don't know how you concluded all that from just a URL. :lol:
