Beeing not a fan of frequency tuning with a mouse, I am wondering if it would be possible to use with SDRUno a TuningWheel from Griffin Technology (https://griffintechnology.com/us/produc ... -keyboards) which they build and sell as <Powermate USB>. I.e. Bonito sells it for its Radiojet 1305P for which he just names the Griffith driver with its hardware. Griffith does not supply any more driver other than for MAC, but the old driver for Win7 should be ok.
Thanks for any feedback.
In order for it to really work well - i.e. little to no jerkiness, smooth tuning with no pops etc., you must use HDSDR as your SDR program because as far as I know it is currently the only program available to us which properly implements the necessary keyboard shortcuts for use with the Griffen Powermate. SDRUno and SDRSharp are not really set up for it and will be popping & the spectrum displays on both programs become jerky when tuning with the hardware knob. Not sure about the SDR Console software because I haven't tried it with a hardware knob.
Using HDSDR, it is easy to set up with most any hardware knob which allows the knob to emulate keyboard shortcuts. What I did was to simply configure the Griffen Powermate via its own software to emulate the up & dn arrow keys during rotation which then tunes the radio .
There is also another alternative if you don't mind a bit of homebrewing - remove the electronics from an old USB mouse and connect a rotary encoder to same. Turns an old mouse into a rotary knob .

For the moment I do not want to install HDSR. I like your idea of transforming a mouse electronic. I have many mice "in stock" as it took me many to find the ones suiting me the best - hihi. After it would work, making the mechanic in aluminium to look similar the Grifin Powermate is not a problem here, a nice project.
I have been trying to save settings in Workspaces to which I gave a name instead of Workspace 1, etc. The name changes have been assigned correctly. After changes of frequency, mode, etc , pressing continuously the CTRL key I choose the Workspace name I want to save and release the CTRL key.
After that when I choose to listen to one or another Workspace nothing happens except that the choosen Workspace name is shown. Nothing changes, whether the frequency or other settings. The only Default Workspace changes the number of Windows settings, but no frequency, mode or other settings.
What a saving of a Workspace should modifiy, number of windows and their sizes alone or frequency, mode, etc as well ?
For the Version number of SDR Uno, I have not found where to look its version. Where can I call it from?
As of V1.2 (1.21 is the latest as of this post and should be used) saving workspaces is done with just pressing CTRL+W. Renaming them is still right click on the workspace name, and selecting the workspace to use is still left click.
Holding the ctrl and pressing mouse buttons, etc. is no longer supported as it was too cumbersome.
SDRuno supports TMATE-1 and TMATE-2 controllers natively.
Hope that helps.

I did not test TMATE-1/2, is it really works? But it looks too expensive anyway.

Yes, of course I know that the tuning mouse wheel allows to change the frequency. I find it very unconvenient as on other SDRs than RSP2 as well.
I want to have a larger wheel fixed vertically in one of my racks, i.e. a hand wheel pulse encoder as used on cnc machines. I have tried to link one to a Logitech M100 mouse but killed its electronic by doing that - hihi!
