Re: [irlp-embedded] DTMF Questiom
- Can you check to make sure that the DTMF tones are not being muted by
the controller? That is a commonly overlooked issue. Most controllers mute
DTMF by default.
Is the DTMF LED on the IRLP board illuminating when you press DTMFs? You
should be able to see the LEDs without taking the whole system apart.
You can also use the readinput command to see what the decoder is seeing.
If you just get a blip of one DTMF, I would look to the controller for a
If the DTMF audio is making it to the board and the LED is not lighting,
you should verify that the level of the audio is not too high or low
feeding the board.
I tested the functionality of the board before I sent it, but it is
possible that somthing is wrong on the circuit board.

Thanks for the suggestions. My embedded IRLP Node 3860 is now working
great! The problem with the DTMF was simply a matter of finding the
sweet spot to the controller RX audio pot.
I hope this may help others from having a frustrating time getting there
node to work with a repeater controller.
Thanks for your help,
