RigPi Audio Settings for USB Audio.
  1.  On the RigPi desktop RIGHT click on Speaker icon in the top right hand corner of the screen.  For the USB cable It needs to have a check mark by the "USB Audio CODEC".  Select it if not already checked.
  2. Your mumble menu should showing on the desk top.  If not click on the lips at the top right of the screen.  This will bring the main Mumble menu into view.
  3. On the Mumble menu go to Configure>settings>audio input tab on left.  Verify the Device to the right is set to default.  If not use the drop down menu to set it to default.
  4. Press Apply at the bottom . Do NOT press OK yet.
  5. Now on the left hand side of the menu move down to the next menu by selecting "Audio Output" and  as you did in step 3 verify the device is set to Default. If not set it to default.
  6. Set the Output delay slider to "50ms". This ensures no TX audio dropout's at some installations.
  7. Press Apply. This time press OK.  The configuration menu goes away.
  8. THIS Step IS IMPORTANT To save your Mumble changes you must Quit Mumble and Reboot. To do this,  on the main mumble screen now showing press Server>Quit Mumble.      *Mumble menu will go away*    
  9. Go to the Raspberry icon at the top left of the screen and after pressing on it select "Shutdown". It is the last selection and will bring up another menu usually in the middle of the screen.  Please select "Reboot"
  10. When the system comes back up Verify any changes you have made are still there. If not start over and take your time.
RSS Tuner Setup
 
I will assume that you set the radio up taking the defaults. You should have done this in the initial setup or when adding a new radio.  If you didn't please add the radio to the RSS now.  See help instructions on this web site if needed.
 
  1.  You will need to start the RSS by double clicking on the Pi icon or from a PC using VNC.
  2.  In 30 seconds or less you will see the sign on screen appear.  Sign on with the ID you set up. It will be Admin (no password) if you did not change it yet.
  3.  On the menu bar across the top above the Frequency readout go to Settings>Advanced Radio.
  4.  Set the baud rate to match the radio.  In our case set it to 38400.
  5.  You must save this change by press the up arrow inside the cloud.  It is under the call sign search on the right hand side of the screen.
  6.  Now on the menu line press the Tuner selection. This will take you back to the main screen.  Try to connect to the radio.  In a few seconds it should tell you you are connected.  If you receive any other message then press disconnect and after receiving the disconnect message and try to connect again.  If it still doesn't connect you will have to do some trouble shooting by checking your settings again or asking for help on the forum.
I will assume you know how to connect to your RigPi both from the LAN and WAN and that you have forwarded the correct ports for the WAN usage.  If not you have some reading to do in the Help Section.  Since every router is different it is not practical to provide the instruction on port forwarding for your router.  You will have to read the manual for your router or try and find others on the forum who might have the same router.  Google is also your friend as well as the search function of this forum.
 
Now it's time to listen to yourself on another receiver or your radio's monitor and see how you sound.  The monitor function will cause an echo but if that's all you have then use it.  Just make sure and turn it off before you get on the air.
 
Now get on the air and have some fun.
 
If you find any errors in these instructions or have any questions please let me know so I can correct them.

Can Ham Radio Deluxe be run from the remote location with the Rig PI connection?

dave.borchard@...
 

I would like to continue using Ham Radio Deluxe for PSK31, keyboard CW, and the other digital modes, plus logging. Can Ham Radio Deluxe be used in conjunction with Rig Pi? Can WSJT-X and JT Alert also be run on the remote location computer with Rig Pi?

On the FT-857 I'm using the same data port to RJ45 cable that I use for FT-8 via a laptop.  For rigpi, the cable is plugged into the 1234 instead of a laptop.  The FT857 has no USB port.

I haven't been successful with audio from a desktop via wifi to the rigpi.  The desktop uses a USB microphone.  The desktop USB mic and speaker system is successfully used with FLEX ssdr software.

Plumble is running on the desktop, and Mumble is running on the 1234.  The connection to the server is successful, but no audio.

Having given up on that I also tried an Android cellfone, and a laptop.  Plumble/mumble is running at each end and the server connection is reported as connected.  With the laptop (and phone) I've only tried using the internal microphone/speaker.

I'll try a few more things and get back to you.

Thanks for the support.

The .dat file for the IC-7300 is not for opening on any computer.
It is to be copied to a SD memory card which is then placed in the radio so that a user can load settings into the IC-7300 that are known to work with RigPi.
Be aware that loading a .dat file into the radio replaces all of the existing settings with the settings that are contained in the .dat file.

Configured, ic7300 was talking, but no audio, now seeing no internet

Rich
 

I am very frustrated. This mfj1234 is NOT plug and play.
Configured with ic7300 as per instructions. configured mumble, still no sound locally....didn't even make it to remote setup.
Now cannot even log on the server at all at http://rigpi.local/, login page won't come up.
Internet is fine, pi not recognizing any internet, tested all cabling etc all good...
Whats happening here???


Help with no audio...FT-857

Edited

I have the TUNER running nicely from a desktop over local wifi to the 1234 and to the FT-857.  All seems to work.

I've had zero luck with audio.  I use a cable from the 857 to the 1234 RJ45, and have the correct jumper plug.
From the 1234 keyboard and monitor, Mumble is working as far as I can tell.  The desktop connects via local wifi to the Mumble server.

But, no audio to/from the radio.  I've tried the "troubleshooting" tips in the help section.  I unplugged the RJ45 and put headphones into the TX OUT. No audio.

Any next steps suggested?
