Talk groups are automatically updated on the Internet. By default, it is set to be updated every 1 minute and 30 seconds.
Connect to DVPi Manager as shown below and click the'Userful features' button.
The Update Interval value in the red box is the cycle to update the Talk group status.
Set it to '0' if you don't want to automatically update the Talkgroup status automatically. It may be better to set it to '0' if you have a bad internet environment.
The number '1' means 30 seconds.
Set it to 4 if you want to refresh it every 3 minutes
Set it to 10 if you want to refresh it every 5 minutes
