SDRuno Frustration

Postby peterex » Thu Jun 08, 2017 4:32 pm

SDRuno with it's wonderful on screen virtual communications radio display is very attractive and obviously attracts a lot of sales of the SDR boxes. But user friendly it is not! I would suggest a large box of headache tablets is provided with every sale! I've been a SWL for 60 years and a licence holder since 1974. I am also reasonably computer literate but I find myself having to constantly refer to the manual to refresh my memory as to how even the basic functions work! Unlike most "real"communications receivers the operation of many controls is not self evident. I realise of course SDRuno is a free programe and maybe I shouldn't complain too much but to my mind it needs a radical update by some computer wizard with an experienced Amateur sitting next to him to provide practical operating advice to ensure that everyone can enjoy their purchase without the headaches!
I don't think rewriting and simplifying manuals is the answer,it's the virtual layout of controls which needs to be changed.
Personally I much prefer the HDSR program which although it isn't as comprehensive as SDRuno doesn't need so much brain ache to operate!
Am I a voice in the wilderness or do others have the same problem?

It has lots of features but the layout is a mess.
i currently have 18 marine channels enabled in SDRConsole v3 this would be unmanageable for me un SDRuno.
