RSP1A and GQRX

Postby G4GXO » Sun Feb 03, 2019 2:58 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to get an RSP1A working with GQRX. I'm aware that some have managed this but just how eludes me so far! The host machine is a venerable Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop running Linux Mint 18.1. GQRX 2.11.5 is installed and running with an RTL-SDR V3. I've installed the SDRPlay API and Soapy. Running the lsusb in terminal finds the connected RSP1A. When I run "SoapySDRUtil -probe=sdrplay" the RSP1A is found and a screen report is printed in the terminal window. Setting the device string in GQRX to "soapy=0,device=sdrplay" and pressing start --- nothing happens!

Any help appreciated

Regards

Ron Taylor

Try this: start GQRX, quit it immediately and start it again. That's the way it has to be done with the Mac version. It's a known bug there.

Running Manjaro Linux, here. The only way I found to get full functionality was to download the gqrx-sdr-2.11.5-linux-x64.tar.xz file at the sourceforge site, extract and run from the folder.
If running Mint, you could try the PPA mentioned at http://gqrx.dk/download/install-ubuntu and see if that works.
