DV4MINI Review 2017

I have owned 2 DV4MINI and found then to be something that could not be used at my Home.

I had many problems with Locking up for no reason, or Looking for DV4MINI stick and not found, or Looking for CCS7 and repeat over and over again and stop working( yet was told this had nothing to do with the DV4MINI stick). I have a disconnect sent from where I do not know them disconnect, would lock up in transmit mode for no reason or show call sign of a ham yet was other ham in the net talking and other Issues.

I could not keep the DV4MIN running over 3 to 8 hour with out having to reset and reboot.

I was told was my computer I have 3 laptops and 4 raspberry Pi the one laptop was Toshiba with 16gb memory, SSD drive and my net was cat 5 from router to computer with Net speed of 100mbps down load 10 up..

I spend over $600 trying to make Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 or Windows 7 or 8 or 10 to work and still lockup and issues. I spent over 650 hours trying to make work. I was in there help ask other hams and in groups and still did not work.

With what i spend in Money for new modem new router new mini computer ( was told they used this and worked so buy ,,,them told this computer was not stable to use for DV4MINI) new powered USB hub new usb cables new sd cards for Raspberry Pi put toroid coils on everything Power cord USB cord HTMI cord and other thing I could have paid for 4 DVhome.

DV4mini Firmware and Software Upgrade on Raspberry Pi

DV4mini Firmware and Software Upgrade on Raspberry Pi 2

I received a lot of questions about the DV4mini software upgrade on the Raspberry Pi 2, this video is showing how to do it easily. It also included the firmware upgrade procedure.

Note: In the DV4mini directory the Archives folder is not there by default, you need to create it. You can also just delete the older file you need to replace.


DV4mini Quad core raspberry pi software

DV4mini Quad core raspberry pi software
Typical running images...

link for Quad core raspberry pi software..
NOTE! this will NOT run on a single core variant. (tried and failed :-(  ) check out how many onscreen raspberry's on boot up!)
Also, a firmware update to v1.61 or v1.64 maybe a good idea also! (files at the bottom of page, if you don't have it, ready to flash!)
you can check version running on your stick at the top of the program window once the main Dv4 software is running.


DV4mini New Raspberry Pi 3 Image

The DV4mini software developers have been hard at work fixing bugs, especially with DMR, and making things work better. So, I thought it time to create a new DV4mini RPi image for your enjoyment. I first built my own image last year when I wanted to have turnkey vnc access to my DV4mini/RPi system.

DV4mini software sync 1 and sync 2 error

Hello, I wonder if you can help, I have tried all sorts of things and looked all over the net.

My dv4mini software keeps coming up with a sync 1 and sync 2 error. I am using a tyt380 radio and when it does this the audio I am sending is unreadable.

Do you have any idea what the error - missing sync 1: missing sync 2: means, i have set everything up correctly as far as I can see, but the software for the DV4mini generates a error?

We have created an Raspberry PI Raspian SDcard image for the PI2 and 3 containing both the DV4Mini abd DV4Mini Compact software. This image will boot up only with a Waveshare LCD TFT screen as seen here:
