Hi,

Have you read the FAQ:
http://www.opengd77.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 37f48811f5

Have you followed the flash procedure:
http://www.opengd77.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 37f48811f5

Same for the User Guide:
https://github.com/LibreDMR/OpenGD77_Us ... r_Guide.md


Cheers.

For DMR mode, again: Did you read and carefully followed ALL STEPS in the flash procedure ? Including download of one concrete issue of an original firmware and setting the path to it in the CPS flash tool ? Does the flasher window show [+DMR] in the window title ?
Otherwise, the radio will rx/tx on FM only, no DMR.

Hi, I follow all the steps like this shows that I made the video there it shows scanning mode, it goes through a frequency that is transmitting, turn on the led but no sound comes out. I even disabled the radio filter. I don't know if it's a problem or settings

In your video, I see no reason why the scanner should stop.
You are claiming that your transceiver does not produce any sound, but this video doesn't try to demonstrate this.
Also, in your early posts you wrote that you were running the latest beta, but in the one with the video link, it's July 11th release, which is definitely not the latest beta.
Also, I hope you're aware about the fact that there are many other digital modes, apart DMR, which are unsupported by the firmware..

my problem is I can't scan digital frequencies, only analog when I scan analog frequencies it listens to a frequency when a radio is in communication, whereas the digital one only detects more, no audio comes out, understand ?

In you video you are doing a VFO scan, so all kind of signals may appear in that frequency range,
the GD77 will lock on those signals and because they may be anything else, but not a DMR transmission,
no audio will be heard. Are you sure, it locked on a DMR signal?

And if you try to chase & listen to other services (legal ?), all kind of encoding can exist.
OpenGD77 supports FM and DMR dual time slot Tier I and Tier II

Program a known DMR repeater frequency pair in CPS, upload the codeplug to the GD77 and try to listen on such a channel.
Install 'RepeaterBook' or 'RFinder Worldwide Repeater Dir' on your mobile, so you will find the nearest repeater in your area.
Besides this, this app will show you if they are DMR, D-Star or C4FM - and only FM & DMR can be heard with OpenGD77.

It will work - straight forward, without any problems. As you said: 'understand?'
