Re: Laptop For sdrplay

Hi Scooby. I used to run my SDRplay on my modest laptop that had a P6200 processor at 1.3 GHz with 2 GB of memory. It worked well at all spans under 5 MHz. Going over that caused it to stutter. I now have a new (actually secondhand from Cash Converters!) laptop with an I-3 processor clocked at 2.4 G...

Re: Decode

The internal mixer of windows does the trick. It is buildin windows so no additinal software to pipe the audio is needed Hi ON4ALL. I'm using WIN7 professional on LENOVO T410. I never succeeded in doing that with ms win mixer (I'm currently using vb-cable) Can you please post some hint how to do it...

New version of SDRPlay?

Twitter rumour doing the rounds that there's a new version soon, one that has no gaps. Is this true or just another piece of fan hysteria?

Re: EXTIO V2.1 Well done!

Yes, 2.1 is a welcome improvement, especially the narrower spans without the cramped-up display. I have the same problem with tuning out of band - my laptop gets all sulky.

Re: One Major Issue with New SDR# VER 2.0 ExtIO

I get the same effect. As I tune abouve 2 GHz, the receiver stops working (as expected), but dialling back to below 2 GHz and re-starting SDR# just causes an 'out of range, hardware not initialised' message (or words to that effect). At this point, everything runs very slowly and the only way out is...

Re: SDRplay and MW/LF Reception

Greg - sorry I didn't see your post earlier! I'm a MW DXer (although a bit lapsed these days) and one of my tests for any radio is whether it can hear the weakish daytime signal from Manx Radio (1368 KHz) in the presence of the very strong signal from Asian Sound Radio (1377 KHz). Some radios just c...

Re: SDRplay SDRSharp Plugin v2.0

It is a bit messy, but my main prob at the moment is that it loses the freq correction every time I shut it down. It's a pain in the backside to have to dial up -174 everytime I want to use it!

Re: HDSDR Plug-in

It's significantly better. However, I've found that it can still 'get lost' when tuning in large steps (say 10 MHz per click). At first you don't know anything has gone wrong, but it slowly dawns as there are no signals.... I think it happens when I tune through the gap zone.
Unless it's just me?

Re: SDRplay and SWL usage

Hello all. After some delay(!) I have managed to return to the forum. Re the frequency discrepancy I don't think the 'shift' feature is suitable, as it adds or subtracts a fixed offset at all frequencies, whereas the SDRPlay (in common with all PLL synthesised tuners) has a 'per Hertz' offset. This ...
