Trouble with DMR Plus

Post by kc9il » Sun Sep 01, 2019 4:47 am

I'm noticing today that when I'm using DMR Plus that I cannot make any connections. I have tried multiple servers to no avail. Brandmeister works fine as does the TGIF network. I have tried my other hotspot and it works fine. My OpenSpot has worked flawlessly for over two years until today.

Normally when I connect to a new reflector, the OpenSpot will announce the change. It no longer does this. I'm ruling out network issues in my house since BM and TGIF work OK.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Use the IPSC named servers only. Make sure DMRplus options are enabled and configured properly.

Norbert,

Thanks for the quick reply. I have always been able to operate DMR+ using the DMRPlus Dongle pull-down on the Connectors page. This is the one that no longer works.

I am able to operate DMR+ using the Homebrew/MMDVM pulldown and checking the box for "Use DMRPlus Options". Is this what I should have been doing all along?

Yes, it seems like DMRplus options need to be turned on for IPSC2 servers. Turn it off for other servers.

So to my first question, should I not be using the "DMRPlus Dongle" pull-down option on the Connectors page? Or, should I be using the "Homebrew/MMDVM" option instead?

Thanks,

Warren

You can use both, however, the Homebrew/MMDVM connector is recommended as the DMRplus dongle connector only supports reflectors (no talkgroups).
