Experimental XLX support

Post by MW0MWZ » Wed Jun 26, 2019 9:51 pm

You should be able to dial XLX's directly now via the dashboard reflector connector, or from the UR field of your radio, let me know if it works/doesnt work for you....

DTMF support is currently not supported for XLX, but you can still dial them as DCS/XRF/REF as appropriate via DTMF.

This did not work as expected, and the new version of ircDDBGateway (now available on Pi-Star v4) is also not the complete solution, but we're getting closer.

DTMF works in the latest github version supporting the feature.;

https://github.com/g4klx/ircDDBGateway/ ... n/DTMF.cpp

Config must be set correctly ;

xlxEnabled=1
xlxOverrideLocal=0 << This parameter may be removed completely.
xlxHostsFileUrl=http://xlxapi.rlx.lu/api.php?do=GetXLXDMRMaster

i can confirm this works on my pistar. Adran Vk4TUX helped me with the configuration as described and it works great.

The way XLX is currently implemented in ircDDBGateway is flawed.

Code: Select all

xlxEnabled=0
xlxOverrideLocal=0
xlxHostsFileUrl=
Works correctly in PI-Star v4.x.x

Why is it flawed ? I disagree.It ensures a pure XLX list not after edited, and it works.

Because the code assumes that ALL XLX are DCS enabled, and they just are not, the implementation is flawed, there is just no other way to put it.
I use the same source for the XLX hosts, and split them into the protocols they actually have enabled.

All true XLX reflectors are DCS enabled, I don't understand your comment, as it is not correct. There are hacked XLX systems renamed to XRF systems or other etc, that don't apply, and are dealt wiith in the XRF list or others apart from the true XLX list.
Please give me an example of one true XLX reflector that doesn't have DCS access? We know XLX is not a dstar connect protocol, so one of the three had to be used, and DCS is best choice and performance. The concept of XLX method is to access all the true XLX reflectors that are not accessible in the dstar REF|XRF|DCS protocol host files. As I said before you supplement these host files with XLX content only where there is a vacant place available, that was in practice on other host files systems before pistar. That is the point of XLX linking, to remove that limitation to access XLXreflectors coinciding with native protocol dstar reflectors matching the same number..

Andy,

Luis has it right, as does Jonathan in his ircddbagateway implementation. It is not at all broken.

Please, as Luis and I have asked, can you cite some examples of so-called XLX reflectors that don't support DCS so that we may investigate and discuss further. But it is going to come out that they are not actually XLX reflectors running xlxd.

Thank you.
