Hi Jim,

If you right-click the Speaker  icon on the Raspberry Pi desktop do you see the USB soundcard there?  If so, select it.  In Mumble>Configure>Settings>Audio Input and Output do you see the USB soundcard there?  If so, select it, click Apply.  When done, restart the Mumble client to have the changes stick.

Hi Neil,

It sounds like you are quite close with Mumble.  Once you have confirmed that audio from the receiver is making it to Mumble (bar graph movement) the Transmission settings in all running Mumble clients must be set to Continuous.  Once you do that the Mumble lips should turn red.

There's a wiki page at the Mumble distribution site.

https://wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Main_Page

Basically you just install mumble and mumble-server using dpkg. There
is some configuration needed, and this may be difficult. When you
install the packages it will require several other packages, and you
get these by doing a 'sudo apt update' and 'sudo apt upgrade' and
rebooting.

rigpi has over 1760 packages installed. So the product took awhile to
engineer and produce :-)

have fun

My problem is that I cannot get Mumble in a stand-alone Raspberry Pi to work.

As has been said, the question of RigPi being open source has been extensively discussed on this forum.  To clarify, everything in the RigPi image is open source except for a small portion of the RigPi server used for the three graphics components.  Instructions for building everything except the RigPi server are readily available on the Internet through a Google search.  The RigPi server source code can be easily seen and modified by anyone caring to do so.  It is not compiled.

There are no patents or copyrights for RigPi.  RigPi is a trademark which I hold.  The schematics for the two RigPi boards are provided on this forum.

Open Source software is free.  The use of free refers to the code being accessible, it is permissible to charge for Open Source software. See the Wikipedia article on Open Source for details. RigPi has been set up on GitHub as a placeholder.  My intent is to provide the RigPi server on Github so others can more easily participate in enhancing it.  I am the only one working on RigPi and I am focused on getting the next release out.  If anyone would like to help, please send me a summary of what you would like to do by private email.

Re: copying macros between accounts

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Russ,

This can be done manually using the program phpMyAdmin found in the Raspberry Pi Application menu under Programming.  The upcoming release has the ability to save and restore macros for any account.  If you want to try the manual approach, please ask for guidance.

The ability to add multiple commands in one macro is fixed in the new release.

Re: Backup of memory card

Steve Sampson
 

Sooner or later you will have to pull the Rigpi apart. The SD card has
a limited lifespan, and you will either have to buy a new one from
MFJ, or copy a new one from your backup for free.

I am loath to pull the RigPi to bits unless I have to


Re: Backup of memory card

Karl Heinz Kremer
 

Yes, if the original was bootable, the copy will be bootable too. Ideally, you would write the backup to a SD card of the same type. This way, you won’t run into problems of the image not fitting. Just because a card says 4, 8 or 16GB does not mean that it has exactly that capacity. And that means that two cards from different manufacturers will very likely have two different capacities. If you want to copy from the smaller one to the larger one, you will not have a problem, but going the other way will not work.

Re: MACROs to change menu setting in a ftdx 3000

Thanks for the answer on how to access the menu option with a macro.   Look at item 76 and 77 these set the levels for data  in and out . I think this applies to the internal sound card.  Have you been able to have a macro to send 2 different commands one right after the other. I would like with 1 macro change  frequency and then set the correct mode (LSB)

Re: Sourcecode #corrupt #lost

I know that this has been discussed - and answered the same warb- many times before. My problem is that I cannot get Mumble in a stand-alone Raspberry Pi to work. Is there any tutorial that describes how to setup just the open source parts of RigPi? Just as Jens, I am reluctant to buy into something that I cannot recreate based on publicly available information. 

So if somebody has a tutorial to setup the open source parts, I would be much more inclined to shell out the money for the hardware and give it a try, but as long as I cannot even get mumble to work, that’s not an option for me.

Jens,
 Strange as it is they may have just used the popular board and designed their firmware around that platform. I used a board that anyone can buy and our company paid coders to write the source code then compiled it and put it on a scan disk. With the RigPi it does not bother me that they are protecting their code. Now if they copied an open source code and did this that is a mistake on their part. And could loos in court as the patent being non valid. I wonder if they applied for a patent on the actual operation of the code as a novel invention and used the open source as a source of information. They could have even trade marked the screen shots. My friend did that with an on the shelf product and coded it the way his client wanted and to protect his coding trade marked the screen shots and he used that in court to collect his back wages as the client was going to stick him. At $299.00 and it works as advertised, what's the beef.

Re: RS-HSIQ setup question

Jim Reagan <jimreagans@...>
 

Playing with MUMBLE, the error seems to reside there.  When I configure to the C media audio device that it is (input & output), and apply to Mumble, suddenly my USB audio adapter starts blinking. I've tried different options for the adapter, but they always cause the USB adapter to start blinking.
When I exit out of the configure option, Mumble says "[time] Opening chosen ALSA input(also output) failed: invalid argument".
Anyone have an answer?

Re: Backup of memory card

Steve Sampson
 

Remove the SD Card and use any of the Image Software. For example the
Raspberry Pi pages have recommended imagers for various operating
systems. In Linux, you just use "dd" and disc copy the contents to a
.img file.

The SD card is like a disk drive. You wouldn't copy a disk partition
while it was being used, so it's best to always unmount a filesystem
before you back it up. The reason being, is the disk is being written
to, and your backup is then possibly corrupt. There are two partitions
on it: 1) Boot in FAT format, 2) OS in ext3 format. You can't just use
the DOS copy command.

The SD card that comes with the RigPi is really slow. The best thing
to do is buy a larger card (32 Gig) and a Faster card. When you buy a
new SD card get the SD micro to mini size adapter that works with your
Desktop or Laptop.

I would not update/upgrade the OS until after you image the card and
replace it with a better one. Thus, the one that came with it is your
backup, and you should tape this to your desk somewhere. Best to image
the SD the day it arrives in the mail. While you update/upgrade you
will experience how slow the card really is. They usually write slower
than read. So get a new faster card.

There's also the USB hard drive boot option. I.e. get rid of the SD
card after imaging the external hard drive and setting the RPi to USB
boot.

Have fun

Re: Sourcecode #corrupt #lost

This has been covered numerous times. Only the GUI parts of the remote
are proprietary. They just offer a more professional look and feel.

Maybe one solution is just to remove the GUI parts and replace them
with +/- buttons :-)

RigPi is a conglomeration of Open Source solutions. For example
Mumble, etc. You can build your own.
But the MFJ 1234 puts the Codec/Keyer hardware, and RPi inside a
self-contained box.

Hi,

since months there is no content in the sourceforge repo.

So is it a lie about open source RigPi software or I am to silly to find the code?

Personally I don't buy any MFJ 1234 stuff without code published.

Russ, I have the FTdx3k also and did setup 2 macros to toggle from Front (P2=0) to USB (P2=2).  Front is EX1030 (*0w \0x45\0x58\0x31\0x30\0x33\0x30\0x3b) for USB EX1032) (*0w \0x45\0x58\0x31\0x30\0x33\0x32\0x3b).  I was unable to adjust mic gain in USB mode. Hope this helps.

Remote operatiion: RigPi == USB=> IC-7100 no audio (TX or RX) #ic-7100 #audio #remote #rigpi

Neil K6NCX
 

I have posted on this previously and gotten useful suggestions. That's the only way I've gotten this far. Thanks to everybody! I had to leave the project aside for a while and I'm ready to get back into it. Starting a new thread so my request for help now, and the current status information, don't get buried under all the old stuff.

I want to do remote operation of my home IC-7100 when I'm on the road. (I may also do some in-the-house-but-not right-at-the-rig operation, i.e., on-LAN. I'm actually testing on-LAN first for each function.) Control works, both through VNC and through browse,r and both from phone and from laptop. But no audio in either direction.
 
Please note that across the board, results are exactly the same whether on-LAN or through WAN, so I don't want to get into discussions of port forwarding and so. That's not it.
 
Mumble client is installed in both phone (iPhone SE iOS 12.3.1) and laptop (Lenovo Flex running Windows 8.1.)  Both clients can connect to Mumble server and log in successfully (using different user names than pi.) Both clients hear some noise upon connection, and if both clients are connected at the same time they hear each other. The RigPi apparently hears the RX audio (right now I forget how we got to that, but the onscreen meter in Mumble moves with RX.) But no audio gets from phone or laptop to radio, or from radio to phone or laptop.
