Re: SDRplay incompatibility with usb 2 pci card ?

So .. I may well have ordered yet another dud ... I wish I'd had this information earlier ... But at least it's available to SDRplay users now via this thread.. Chances are the second card I ordered though a different brand also uses the via chipset ...and this is where the problem lies. This is cli...

Re: SDRplay incompatibility with usb 2 pci card ?

Thanks for the reply .. I do not use the Blaze app in this PC .. It was installed to try and pin down the issue only .. This exact same issue started when I simply transferred over from using a motherboard usb connection to the pci card .. at that point nothing else had been installed ...but SDRplay...

Re: SDRplay incompatibility with usb 2 pci card ?

Yes indeed ...this certainly is a puzzle.. I downloaded the Mirics TV/DAB software as you suggested and installed it ... But it does not find the Mirics (SDRplay) Hardware ...even though this is clearly present as indicated in Blaze to the left of the screen ... Red arrows indicate both .. So ..for ...

Re: SDRplay incompatibility with usb 2 pci card ?

To prove that the PCI USB2 card can work with something other than a USB thumb drive I inserted a DVBT dongle - installed the drivers - which is Identified by Blaze Player as DVB-T IT9135 (BDA Filter) ...and scanned for TV channels ... I am now watching TV on this dongle .. So I guess that proves th...

Re: SDRPlay TCXO?

Yes indeed VK2KIT.. I think I proved it will work just fine with a TCXO ... ..and could have been retrofitted relatively easily ..replacing the original Osc ...if the lands/pads had been a little larger ...and as you say adds little to the build cost. Perhaps the designers will indeed consider this ...

Re: SDRPlay TCXO?

Tidied this up and the TCXO is now fitted on a similar but custom made pini pcb .. The SDR play pcb left overnight but not enclosed (without case) remained stable and on frequency ...but now the pcb is once more enclosed I am having to make small changes and track the T stream data ... So although i...

Re: SDRPlay TCXO?

So ..My warranty is now void having removed the 24mhz crystal.. The 24mhz TCXO is temporarily hung with fine wires on a small piece of stripboard ... This may be a problem to fit as it has a slightly larger footprint than the original crystal .. No capacitors have been removed from the SDRplay pcb a...
