This software can be used to interface to the AMB-OS satellite receiver. AMB-OS is a a Satellite-delivered File Transfer (SFT) platform where the file is transmitted once and captured on the receiver end. Amb-OS Media has developed a transmission platform which eliminates some of the redundancies, improves reliability and maintains high fidelity by preserving audio files in their digital form. More details about AMB-OS can be found on their website.
Where to download
It can be downloaded at the rivendellaudio.org/ftpdocs site.
In Suse the configuration is in Yast.
Other Linux Distros
Other Linux distributions look to edit /etc/amb-ux.conf and replace the default values with the ones for your AMB-OS receiver. I think that you will also need to manually setup the AMB-UX daemon startup script.
Copy the file rc.amb-ux, that comes in the source code package, as the super user to:
Under Ubuntu if you open a terminal where the rc.amb-ux file is you could do this with the command:
sudo cp rc.amb-ux /etc/init.d/amb-uxd
and make it executable with
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/amb-uxd
You will also need to setup the run levels that the AMB-UX daemon will be started and stop on using the update-rc.d command. On an Ubuntu computer:
sudo update-rc.d amb-uxd defaults
should get that setup nicely.
Frequently Asked Questions about the AMB-UX software
Q: How do I rename files with the AMB-UX software?
A: There's no need to manually rename the files in the amb-ux target directory. Just use the appropriate date variables in the file name in the RDCatch download event. For a list of date variables, open a shell and enter
at a prompt.
Q: How do I get to the Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the AMB-UX software?
A: The amb-ux utility does not have a GUI. It simply maintains a mirror of the files available on the amb-os receiver in a local directory.
