As far as I know the TGIF network is a group of talkgroups on the BrandMeister network. If I'm wrong please send us more information about the network, where can we find a server list and what protocol has to be used to connect hotspots.

Hello, TGIF was associated with Brandmiester but no longer. It has been added as a new network to Pi-Star. I am afraid I cannot answer your questions in any detail but here are a couple of web addresses that may help:

Thank you for this consideration.

TGIF is simply accessed using MMDVM protocol. Attached is my own openspot configuration.

Hi, Thank you for your help. I tried this and it works great! I set the TGIF network as profile 1 and used the 90001 for switching to it. Thanks again for all your help.

My original series OpenSpot Connector screen does not have the "ADD SERVER" button, or a place to type the server address. Do I need to update the firmware, or is this an OpenSpot 2 screen?
