TGIF no go on PI_Star DMRGateway
« on: August 12, 2021, 05:30:30 pm »
I have a Radioddity GD77 DMR radio and DVMega hotspot with PI-Star 4.1.5. I have been able to setup access to D-Star and Brandmeister, DMR+ and XLX networks using DMRGateway. I have hit a brick wall with TGIF. Watching the TGIF monitor page, I only see when I transmit to the Parrot on 9990 and I do not get a response from it. When I try to connect to a talkgroup, I do not see my transmission on the monitor page. I have attached my TGIF settings from the DMRGateway INI file. I have commented out the rewrite rules for time slot 1 in case they were causing an issue, but the results are the same. I have also tried both private and group calls without any success. Any help would be appreciated.

A few suggestions:

1) Don't comment out lines.  Pi-Star does not like commented lines and will likely not parse the file correctly with any present.

2) Try appending a (not previously used) two digit suffix to your DMRID.  Like 318310210, 318310220, and so on.

3) Replace passw0rd with a generated secure one after completing the registration process on the tgif website.

4) You seem to be missing a parameter that I have in mine (Local=62035).  My stanzas for each network use a unique number in that line (62033, 62034, 62035 and so on).

Here's my stanza for TGIF for comparison.  Caveat: I am using Phil, VE3RD's excellently modified DMRGateway-4, so my rewrite rules are a bit different):

[DMR Network 4]
Enabled=1
Name=TGIF
Id=311164434
Address=tgif.network
Port=62031
Local=62035
TGRewrite0=2,1,2,1,9999999
TGRewrite1=2,14000001,2,1,999999
PCRewrite0=2,9990,2,9990,1
PCRewrite1=2,14009990,2,9990,1
SrcRewrite0=2,9990,2,WB3IHY,1
Password=(16 digit secure password redacted)
Location=1
Debug=0

Hope some/all of that is of some help.

Thanks Joe. I will give these a try. Unfortunately I have been unable to register for a password. I have completed the registration process 3 times and have not received a verification email. I emailed support 3 times about the issue and got no response. Yesterday I posted this to the forum and so far no response there. So I will have to stay with legacy mode until I get a response on the registration.

Hi Russell,

Let me know how you make out with the Gateway.  With regard to TGIF registration, I'll make an admin aware of the situation and see if something can be done.

If I had to make a wild guess, I'd wager that there's an issue with emails getting through to your email provider (spam/blacklist blocking, and so on.).  The support team is usually VERY good at responding in a timely manner.

Regards,
Joe, WB3IHY

Thanks Joe,

I made all the changes one at a time and tried to connect after each one. Still no success. No matter what I do the only thing I see on the TGIF monitor is the transmission to 9990, the Parrot talkgoup. All of my transmissions are in the PI-Star log. I need to figure out how to do some more debugging in PI-Star so that I can see where the Hotspot is sending the transmissions and be sure they are getting on the correct network.

Thanks for contacting admin about my registration problem. Maybe when that is sorted out and I cannot connect to the network with an authorized account I have success.

Problem solved Joe.  I was using TallkGroup 39139 for testing. I saw on the Facebook group where it was shutting down today. I changed to a TalkGroup that is in the active list on the TGIF.Network page and it now works. Thanks for your assistance.

Excellent! Glad that it's working for you.

Hopefully you'll have similar success with the network registration/secure password issue.  Never hurts to have a secured connection, especially when some of the talkgroups may require one.

Incidentally, 31665 (the "main" one) switched to just such a talkgroup not long ago.  Just saying.
