I don't think this is gonna work with the DVMega. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Just to enforce what Torsen has said above...
If you own a simplex MMDVM device you can only use one TS, usually TS2.
Only a duplex MMDVM device can use both TS1 & TS2 simultaneously.
Only a duplex MMDVM device can be set to run in duplex mode. A simplex device won't run dual slot.

It's been ages since I've connected with or used DMR+ connections, and I'm not up too spped with them currently, but presuming the need to use TG8 local with DMR+ still applies here when running with more than one server (network) connection within dmrgateway? ie TG8 DMR+, TG6 XLX etc. ??? Take it as is, as I'm way behind on this.

I already suspected that, I'll leave it as it is.
I've been listening on DMR+ for a while now, but here on the IPSC2-NL server there's not much to hear.
Thanks all.

I wonder if you need to setup TGRewrite as well as your options= line in order to hear the activity. For example, on my hotspot if I don't enter the following in the TGRewrite line in the expert setting, I don't hear any activity whatsoever from the IPSC2-QuadNet server on talkgroup 320. So in my options= line I have the following:

StartRef=;RelinkTime=120;UserLink=1;TS1_1=320;TS1_2=;TS1_3=;TS1_4=;TS1_5=;

Then under Expert settings, DMR GW (DMR Network 2) I have the following TGRewrite command:

2,320,2,320,1

What this does for me is any time I use talkgroup 320, it routes that transmission to the IPSC2-QuadNet server. All other talkgroups go to brandmeister.

Hope this helps,

I've been testing with my DVmega for quite some time but I think I know why it doesn't work with me. The picture shows the setting that only the DMR+ network is on. This way I can't connect to DMR+. On picture 2 below only DMR+ is switched on and then I will get connection to DMR+. If I turn on DMR BM at picture 1, BM will work as usual. All in all an error in Pi-star software.

if you want to use the available DMR+ TG's you need to set the DMR+ server as master instead of DMRGateway, and use TG9 for ref linking, and TG as required on a TS2 channel.

To run under DMRGateway, it is more complicated but doable. The PassAllTG= entries in other profiles need to be disabled with a # prefix, and replaced with TGRewrite rules for The TG's you want for each profile ensuring that none overlap the other.

Each subsequent rule to TGRewrite must have a progressive number, TGRewrite0,TGRewrite1,TGRewrite2,TGRewrite3,TGRewrite4,TGRewrite5 etc for the rules as they go to keep them in the config recognised by pistar. Then all profiles will work. I have 6 seperate networks that work together doing this.

Yeah, okay, but with DVMega you can't make profiles, that's the problem.
