That looks all good with DMR Decode, and assuming the disc tap is correct all looks good with DSD too.

I'm uploading two more video examples of two other systems which I'll post here as soon as they're ready, one is a busy system with lots of voice (UHF) but they also have a databurst every 30 seconds which is common with TRBO systems. The other is the one that I said transmits most of the time about 95% data and 5% voice (VHF).

Are there any other local systems you could try as it looks like you've got everything set up correct?

No just this system, on my last video I was using SDR radio with Virtual Audio Cable, this seems to be much better! DMR Decoder is doing things I've not seen it do before! I'll just keep at it..need a run to clear my head...back soon :lol:

Don't worry a lot of people have trouble getting started as there's a bit to get to grips to, first the discriminator tap, then connecting the scanner to the PC via line in and setting and adjusting audio input levels and settings, installing DSD, and then the search for DMR signals to decode, each one is a hurdle to jump but it's worth it in the end, especially as DMR is growing at such an ever increasing rate over analogue ;)

The above DMR UHF Mototrbo System is fairly common. Voice is used often on the above system and every 30 seconds there is a short data burst (which happens constantly whether or not people are talking). I'm told this is the set up on older mototrbo systems running on older Firmware although I have noticed newer systems do this too. Ignore the other transmissions I've also got a few analogue scanners running in the background.

The above VHF Mototrbo system transmits most of the time about 95% data and 5% voice (VHF). Data in the form of various modes such as text messinging and locational tracking can be used on Mototrbo systems along with voice communications. Again, Ignore the other transmissions I've also got a few analogue scanners running in the background.

All done :)

Used SDR,DSD,VAC, and I got the gist it wasn't inverted!! I was getting the color code via DMRDecoder... when I took the inverted option out from DMRDecoder I was getting a color code

just left dsd with no switch on and I got it

One happy bunny :)

Thanks to all who helped ;)
