Re: linux getting started probs

I am glad you found the problem with the bad USB cable.
How did you install 'gqrx'? From source or with a binary package?

Re: linux getting started probs

I read through your steps and it looks like you diidn't build/install Soapy SDR Play as described here: https://github.com/pothosware/SoapySDRPlay/wiki I just went through all those steps (i.e. the ones for SoapySDR from here https://github.com/pothosware/SoapySDR/wiki/BuildGuide#unix-instructions p...

Re: Linux installation - help needed

Martin, try running this command: sha256sum SDRplay_RSP_API-Linux-2.13.1.run it should give you exactly this output: e2320b9eafffa3cb5d49e956207af2521ccf098aacc1fd9abecc8fb96b364522 SDRplay_RSP_API-Linux-2.13.1.run If that long hexadecimal number is different, the file you downloaded is probably cor...

Re: CubiSDR on RPi 3 can't see SDR device

Rob, if the command I gave you shows no output, it probably means that Linux running on your Raspberry Pi can't see the RSP for some reason (and of course all the Linux applications running on top of Linux can't either). This could be due to either software or hardware problem. To rule out that is a...

Re: CubiSDR on RPi 3 can't see SDR device

Rob, can you run this Linux command and see what it returns? lsusb -v -d 1df7: if the first non-empty line is something like this (your numbers will probably be different): Bus 003 Device 004: ID 1df7:3010 then your USB bus address is 003:004. If you don't get anything back, then it means your Raspb...

Re: SDRPlay, Raspberry Pi & Python

Daniel, I just saw your original question about SDRPlay and Python tonight. I think you may want to look into GNU Radio (see: https://www.gnuradio.org/ and https://wiki.gnuradio.org/index.php/HowToUse). GNU Radio is mostly written in Python and it allows you to write your own Python applications (ht...

Re: Help needed, please...

Hans, most of the SDRs (including the RSPx's) cannot just 'receive a couple of kHz' around a given frequency - what they do is to 'sample' a typically much larger bandwidth (from 200kHz to several MHz in the case of the RSPs) and return a stream of I/Q values for the 'receiver' software to process (...

Re: RSP2 Firmware

ultravista, I think the RSP firmware is part of the API driver and therefore it is probably updated every time SDRplay releases a new version of the APIs. If you have the API/Driver installed, you should be able to find the files with the RSP firmware as 'msi2500_fw.bin' (for the RSP1, I think) and ...

Re: Beginner help with SDRUNO and raspberry pi 3

Mike,
SDRUNO only runs on Windows, while the Raspberry Pi runs Linux (typically a Linux distribution called Raspbian), so unfortunately you can't run SDRUNO on your Raspberry Pi, however there are several other options for Linux like CubicSDR and GrOsmoSDR.

Hope this helps,
Franco
