I'm using a Hotspot: DVMega with Raspberry PI 3B. First I used Easy BM light, then an image created by KB5RAB. I updated Linux, mmdvmhost and the dashboard. My DVMega firmware ist 3.14.

Sometimes (about once per week), auto static takgroup hangs! At the moment for example, auto static ist set to 262. I talked on 26270 and to 91. Both opend as dynamic, but autostatic is still set to 262 and is disturbing my reception of the other Talkgroups!

If I reboot mmdvmhost, it works!

What's wrong here? Nobody else seems to have this problem? Is my hardware defective?

Edit: Meanwhile I use a new Atmel processor with firmware 3.17 and updated the complete software several times. I noticed that autostatic only hangs after a DSL-Reconnect. In Germany DSL is disconnected every 24 hours and the users get a new IP. I can reproduce that autostatic sometimes hangs after such a reconnect (maybe one of four disconnects). tg 4000 etc does not help. I have to reconnect again to solve the problem temporary, eg by pressing the "Reset connection" button at

When I key up a TG it seems to stay as the last keyed TG in auto static. Eventually after removing it a number of times and repeatedly keying up another TG works. I also thought it might be my hardware, but I don't think so. I believe the auto static TG is just slow to be removed or just hangs.

One addition, not necessarily the German DSL providers reconnect every 24 hours. Many of them turned this behavior on network side off, especially when VoIP / IP telephony is involved, just the routers still have this setting active. In this case it just need to be turned off in the router, too :)

I know. But if it hangs, it does not work. Talked to a BM admin last weeek. Sems to be known that sometimes a internet-disconnect is needed.

Dail TG4000 to clear all dynamics and the current auto static.
