Multiple SDRPlay Devices Not Enumerating Properly (2.09)

Postby ehidle » Sun Jan 08, 2017 7:18 pm

See here for reference:

https://github.com/pothosware/SoapySDR/issues/104

I initially opened this issue with Soapy because I thought the problem lay there, but the response was that this is possibly an error in how mir_sdr_GetDevices() reports the devices it finds.

Here's what I am finding with SoapySDRUtil --find:

RSP1 -> Fine
RSP2 -> Fine
RSP1 + RSP2 -> Only RSP2 successful
RSP1 + RSP1 -> Only one RSP1 usable
RSP1 + RSP1 + RSP2 -> RSP2 and One RSP1 successful, second RSP1 not usable

The response I got was this:

"It could be a bug in the sdr play libs, as far as SoapySDRPlay is concerned, its just reporting the result of mir_sdr_GetDevices(). For whatever reason mir_sdr_GetDevices() debugging prints out that it finds all of the devices but does not report it correctly in the resulting structures. You might need to let sdr play know about it

I was happy user on 1.97 API with CubicSDR and GQRX / GNU radio, using one RSP1 + Rtl Sdr V2
when my second RSP1 arrived two RSP1 on CubicSDR or GNU radio was impossible mission...
After several re-installations managed to above level.
My CubicSDR and GNU radio still not working :mrgreen: under 2.09 API
