Re: SDRPlay Performance

As a follow-up, my new computer system runs SDRUno just fine as I had hoped that it would. :) I can run full screen, multiple receivers and full band width, no problem. I was right, it was time to upgrade. ;)

Re: SDRPlay Performance

I stuck with Vista for a long time, obviously. :) I didn't want to get into the upgrade headaches. This time it turned out to be 'drive indexing', supposedly for faster searches. Once that was turned off the CPU usage dropped from running at 100% all of the time. I just checked Task manager and audi...

Re: SDRPlay Performance

David, please don't be sorry for the long post. I'm saving this to use in my search for a new computer. I'm going to go as 'Big' as I can to hold off that next upgrade as you mentioned. Years back I was tied in with a group that were big into flight sims and we were constantly upgrading to attempt t...

Re: SDRPlay Performance

Thank you for the great info David. I can see that with my computer will be able to marginally run one VRX at a lower band width. With what I want to do with SDR's, ADS-B and so on, I will definitely need a lot more computer power. I do have a USB 3.0 card with Reneas chipset that I have connected t...

Re: SDRPlay Performance

OK, after many uninstalls and internet searches, not to mention reboots, my computer will run the SDRPlay. The real culprit apparently was Windows update set to automatic. Removing other software and so on, would have an effect on the CPU usage at the initial start up. In other words, it took a litt...

Re: SDRPlay Performance

I appreciate all of the help. Checking the CPU usage was revealing. There is a computer problem. The CPU usage goes to 100% shortly after starting the computer. The processor is a single core and the USB port is definitely USB 2.0. I have been doing searches and finding that I'm not the only one tha...

Re: SDRPlay Performance

Well, I have tried setting the band width as low as it can be set and the problem persists. At times the choppy audio is almost gone but never completely gone.

Re: SDRPlay Performance

Thank you for the quick reply. I neglected to say what software I was using alright. ;) I had tried SDRUNO and SDRConsole with the same results. I thought that I had selected a narrower band width but I will double check that. I realize that the SDRPlay is a USB 2.0 device that is why I was confused...
