Re: ubuntu 16.04: nothing works!

Hi Morbus, Sdrplay does not work on Linux with gqrx out of the box. Reason is that sdrplay's driver is not free software. You have several choices, all of them with quite a lot of manual work and building packages from source. 1. gqrx: 1.1 Build osmosdr with non free support. See http://sdr.osmocom....

Re: TS590s SDR Play Combo

If I understand it correctly, the switch box is more or less a relay box that switches the antenna between the transceiver and an external receiver. I have a similar setup to connect my old R4C RX to my FT250 TRX. So if you want to be able to receive with the TS590S and the SDRPlay at the same time,...

Re: sdrplay with Kubuntu 16.04

Since there were a number of Ubuntu package updates, I tested again today. Result: SDRPlay is working with the USB ports marked "SS" (I think this means USB 3.0) on my Laptop. On the "normal" USB ports the Laptop still locks hard. I *think* I checked all USB ports during my first...

Re: sdrplay with Kubuntu 16.04

Thanks Franco for your reply.

Now I know it's not my own fault. I hope sdrplay support is able to look into it soon. Fortunately I kept my working 14.04 installation.

sdrplay with Kubuntu 16.04

Hello, today I installed the new Kubuntu 16.04. I installed the SDRplay API and rebuilt all my libraries and qgrx from source. When I start gqrx, it finds the sdrPlay but during initialization the laptop locks hard, I have to press the power button for >5 seconds to recover. Cubicsdr gives same resu...

Re: ADC Setpoint not working

I did some more detailed investigations regarding setting the gain reductions. Setup: SDRplay connected to Rohde und Schwarz Signal generator SML, frequency 25MHz, level -80dBm. gqrx with SoapySDRPlay driver from git master and latest SDRplay API on Kubuntu 14.04. Observation: When the LNA threshold...

Re: ADC Setpoint not working

David, thanks for your reply. The name of the API installer is SDRplay_RSP_MiricsAPI-1.9.4.run, and the Web page says "Includes API 1.8.1", but what I see is exactly what you write. The gain jumps around 20dB or so (at least the noise floor jumps that way). This is with the "soapy&quo...

Re: ADC Setpoint not working

I have the same or a similar issue. Running gqrx with soapy-sdrplay on Kubuntu 14.04. All software built from latest git. In gqrx I get the gain sliders TUNER and LNAT. The TUNER slider more or less works as expected, but sometimes the noise floor jumps about 20dB when moving the TUNER slider. This ...
