Hello good people,
I hope I find you and your families in good health and good cheer. It has taken a while to decide which unit to purchase, thank goodness for YouTube videos. Ordered Thursday morning about 9am, delivered Friday morning at 10:48, wonderful service.
However, I am a 75 year old disabled pensioner, far from being an accomplished IT specialist. As this is my first foray into SDR, I would give my left arm for a instruction book. I have the software loaded and the unit is in operation, all be it with the usual "piece of wire" as an antenna. I am awaiting delivery of the correct adaptors to attach the main antennas properly.
Having got this far, I now find that if I want to control the main shack TRX along with the SDR, I need to load software called "Omnirig", the instruction is that "Omnirig" must be loaded first!!. Does this mean that I have to delete all the software for SDR, load "Omnirig" then reload all the SDR software again?.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
regards,
73 de Noel, G4AVN.

Noel,

it normally means that you just run omnirig first, so i run Omnirig to talk to my main radio, then load (run) sdr-console or HDSDR, which both use omnirig to synchronize radios and your RSP....

Paul,
May I thank you for your reply, I now understand what must be done. I am pleasantly surprised at the performance of SDRPlay.
