Please include listings for XLX YSF capable reflectors in the OpenSpot and OpenSpot2. As a sysop for two XLX reflectors which are YSF capable, I would greatly appreciate it.

Also the ability to auto-connect to a specific XLX module would be extremely helpful. This can be accomplished by send specific DTMF sequences upon connection to XLX.

XLX servers will be added to our server database shortly. We are still emailing the developer of XLX to add a proper way (no in-band signalling) to select the remote module.

That is incorrect, there is no DTMF support for module connect in YSF mode in XLX code.

'DTMF' is maybe the wrong way to list it, but 'Direct ID entry' via keypad is indeed possible. This is the avenue Luc suggests for radios lacking the 'X' button.

XLX now supports a default module set by sysop, so that is no longer an issue.
If you just append ; http://xlxdmr.duckdns.org/xlx/XLXYSFHosts.txt
to your YSFHosts.txt import These then will just show in the same list .

True, yes I called Luc out on his incorrect 'via DTMF' explanation. It is direct 'En' (FT-70) entry as you say, I did a video for that and the FT3D on XLX389 dashboard. However wires-x will not be required for the default module connect as is now possible with pistar with my system.

I see that XLX hosts are now listed under YSF on the beta firmware update for the OpenSpot2; but unfortunately a connection cannot be established to any of the reflectors.

At least it appears that things are moving forward though.

We've checked and the issue is that the XLX server does not respond to YSFReflector status packets. It is missing from their implementation. We'll contact the developers of XLX to add this missing status packet implementation.

Update: we've just got the answer from the devs that they'll add status packet implementation in the next XLX server version.
