What am I checking exactly? What might have happened?

thanks again

Maybe check the files in:

Hi Jeff,

Only RigPi files are currently updated.  The 3rd party programs and operating system must be updated manually.  A way to update all programs is on our list for the future.

Howard, Will these updates be installed with the next RSS release? This should be an automatic update from MFJ support shouldn’t it?

Maybe move SPKR to pin 4?

I suggest using a voltmeter to make sure the hardware PTT line to the radio’s data connector is being driven low on transmit. Otherwise the RigPi will still key the radio with a serial command but the TM-V71 ignores audio on the data connector and transmits from its microphone instead. 


No Wireless Interfaces Found

I updated the operating system and all is well except that now when I double check on the up and down arrows on the desktop I get "no wireless interfaces found"

Ethernet works ok.

Any ideas?

Just to follow up for anyone interested in a relay AC power switch, they are back in stock at Amazon:

Another idea that I have used quite a bit, is to modify a computer outlet strip to use an SSR similar to:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/24V-380V-40A-250V-SSR-40-DA-Solid-State-Relay-Module-3-32V-DC-To-AC/163888046797?hash=item26287d22cd:g:VcQAAOSwX7BacSxg
  I modified to outlet strip to use the SSR to activate the power and drive the input circuit directly from and Arduino or in this case, a RigPi.

I use these to power off all of my computer peripherals (monitor, speaker, etc.) when I power off my computer.  SSR is driven off the 5v of the computer.  I also, have one that is driven off the Arduino that switches DC power on my K3 power supply, speakers & rotor (the Arduino also automatically switches my antennas, following the K3).

Kenwood TM-V71A Working except No Audio On Transmit... Jumper Settings? #jumper #kenwood #mfj-1234

Kenwood TM-V71A Working except No Audio On Transmit...  Jumper Settings?  So I dropped the FT-100D and redid everything for the Kenwood TM-V71A.  It is working with PTT control, Up, Dn Control and I have it sending the RX audio through Mumble and that is working but when I transmit from the web interface there is no audio being sent out of radio.  My guess is maybe I do not have the correct jumper settings on the internal 8 pin socket right.  I didn't change anything from the recommended Yaesu/Icom suggestion in the 1204 manual so I think Kenwood might be off somewhere by one pin as the PTT works, The Audio from radio to mumble works but the mumble to radio is silent.  I am using a SignaLink 6 pin din cable and so my guess is there is one pin I have incorrect and the MFJ1204 diagrams are not very clear on how to set up the Kenwood TM-V71A.

So as the jumpers stand right now, they are as the image shows:  . I am guessing my computer audio transmit is making it through to mumble server because I see my user mic icon on control computer in mumble flicker when computer mic picks up sound audio but to the radio it is not happening... so is it a problem with "mic" to pin "1"?

Hope someone has an idea..

Howard,  Continued investigation has revealed that there was
indeed corrupted file(s).  I did a complete clone of the original
image that was saved to the hard drive.  I also put away the original
card for safe keeping.  I re-imaged a new card and went through
all steps necessary to configure the setup.
I have no idea why those file(s) got corrupted.
This setup is now working on my PC as well as the cellphone via WIFI
and cell internet.
Very important all,  do a complete clone of the original for safe keeping.
Also when you have everything setup then shutdown RigPi and do a clone
of it for again safe keeping, you never know about them their Gremlins.

Howard,  Further into this, did this test, using the RSS only in RigPi.
Using the USB to CI-V adapter I connected to the 7300 and clicked on the
PTT next to the VFO dial. the 7300 went into transmit but it was stuck again.
I pulled the CI-V phone plug from the 7300 but it remained in the stuck transmit
condition.
RSS seems to be sending the transmit command to toggle on but when the RSS PTT
is released then RSS is not sending the unkey PTT command.
Command 1A050035 with 00=OFF or 01=ON.  Page 19-4 of the manual.
I am thinking I have a corrupt file.

Howard,  Thanks for the reply.  Last nite everything was working as it should.
I only used a browser or directly with the RSS on the PI and only one at a time.
Today I was using the RSS directly except for the one time I used a browser
on the phone for a test.  I turn both the WIFI and Data off on it when not in use.
I have checked for the PTT RTS and DTR and both are OFF.
I even saved all settings in the 7300 and did a full reset then reloaded all settings.
In this case it is not sluggishness but outright stuck in transmit.
I have noticed at times the PTT LED works then sometimes nothing when I PTT.
I have not figured in RSS settings to have the PTT directed to the mic jack instead
of the CI-V remote jack.  But first to solve this stuck PTT problem

Re: Android phone

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Bob,

For Android browsers you have to use the LAN IP address for RigPi when at home.  You can find the LAN IP in RigPi>Settings>System.  So it will be something like 192.168.1.xx where xx is the last digits of your actual address.

Re: TS2000 no TX audio

Michael Saladino
 

Final tests of the day:

RX audio stable

TX. Can generate tune tone in wsjtx that is good to TS-2000 TX monitor. Also can generate PTT via the RJ45 connector cable. 

When connected via Mumbler to RSS  RX audio level is good. I can activate PTT function.  No TX audio is found at the RJ45 connector or at the TX Out plug of the RSS. 

This seems to be internal to the sound card in RSS. 

I am thinking of trying another sound card or a USB dongle.  Any other ideas to troubleshoot are appreciated. 

Mike

Howard, more testing today. I found the RX audio level was intermittent when pressing on the isolation transformers on the sound board. I resoldered the points and stable RX levels now. 

Bad news is that the TX audio has disappeared.  No longer appears at the TX out jack on RSS.

Hi Mike,

One thing I don’t see you mentioned is whether you are using the Mic or Line Input option for the RigPi Audio board.  You can set one or the other in Alsamixer.  Using Mic input gives about a 10X boost in input audio levels, Mic Boost adds another increase.

Another test is to open open Mumble>Configuration>Settings>Input Audio on the client running on your desktop.  In the Transmit drop down select Audio Level, then apply.  The bar graph should bounce around in response to audio levels.  It should be possible to “peg” the bar graph.  Where is yours active?

I doubt the problem has anything to do with Mumble on your iPhone other than normal iPhone audio level settings.

Help someone I've tried to get rigpi on my Android galaxy S8, I've tried two browsers no joy. Tried with http & without. Have rigpi on my windows laptop and the basic work. So what do I need to type in the browser. I have plumble working so I can hear the rigpi but no skin showing rigpi.

As you have found, the new Mumble version 1.3 is not yet available through the apt-get process.  You can find instructions for compiling on a Raspberry Pi using Google.
