FYI: API 1.97 works on Kubuntu 16.04 (soapysdr + gqrx)

Are there release notes anywhere?

When also API Specification will be updated to current 1.97 version?

In API Spec mir_sdr_AgcControl is defined as

Code: Select all

mir_sdr_ErrT mir_sdr_AgcControl(unsigned int enable......

with "enabled" 0|1 but in /usr/local/include/mirsdrapi-rsp.h is defined as

Code: Select all

mir_sdr_ErrT mir_sdr_AgcControl(mir_sdr_AgcControlT enable,.....

with "enabled" defined as

Code: Select all

typedef enum
{
  mir_sdr_AGC_DISABLE  = 0,
  mir_sdr_AGC_100HZ    = 1,
  mir_sdr_AGC_50HZ     = 2,
  mir_sdr_AGC_5HZ      = 3
} mir_sdr_AgcControlT;


For this problem the fork version of osmosdr in
https://github.com/krippendorf/gr-osmosdr-fork-sdrplay
(used for gqrx) don't compile with new API.
There is an osmosdr library up to date or the preferred mode for SDRPlay use in gqrx is SoapySDR?

0 and 1 will work in the same way as they did before - 1 just gives you the new AGC mode by default.

If enum has been used, it will need to be updated.

The problem is not in value (0,1,2,3) but in type of parameter.

In sdrplay_source_c.cc of gr-osmosdr-fork-sdrplay the definition of function is

Code: Select all

bool sdrplay_source_c::set_gain_mode(bool automatic, size_t chan) {
.....
    mir_sdr_AgcControl(automatic, _dev->agcSetPoint, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);


This is wrong according to new API. But also using a unsigned integer, according to API documentation, is wrong.
This function compile without errors only defining "automatic" parameter as mir_sdr_AgcControlT type, according to installed mirsdrapi-rsp.h file

Yes, it shouldn't really have been a boolean in the first place. The latest API has been updated on the website...

Probably already know but not in gr-osmosdr-fork-sdrplay repository yet:

This should fix the build problem with API 1.97:

Code: Select all

@@ -402,7 +402,7 @@ bool sdrplay_source_c::set_gain_mode(bool automatic, size_t chan) {
     _auto_gain = automatic;
     std::cerr << "automatic = " << automatic << std::endl;
 
-    mir_sdr_AgcControl(automatic, _dev->agcSetPoint, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
+    mir_sdr_AgcControl(automatic ? mir_sdr_AGC_100HZ : mir_sdr_AGC_DISABLE, _dev->agcSetPoint, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
