Updated Raspberry Pi 3 Image (v0.4)

Post by sdrplay » Mon Nov 19, 2018 2:44 pm

This release (V0.4) is a complete image for the Raspberry Pi 3 with a range of pre-built applications for SDRplay devices.

Please note the following:

1. This software is made available purely for the convenience of users to save them from having to build the software themselves from source code.
2. All software apart from ADS-B is provided by third party developers and SDRplay can take no responsibility for any faults or bugs and is unable to provide support. For any support for these applications, we recommend that users contact the original authors.
3. Where the RSPduo is supported by applications, it can only be used in single tuner mode.
4. Whilst this should work with all RPi3s, we have only tested with RPi3 B+ and that will provide the best performance.

List of known issues:

Enabling Hardware Acceleration
The image should enable hardware acceleration by default, but if it isn't enabled (CubicSDR windows will open slowly) then run...

sudo raspi-config

in a command prompt and go to the Advanced options (A7) and then select G1 GL Full driver. Then OK and back to the main menu to exit, you should now be prompted to reboot.

Will only work over LAN connections and locally. It will not work over Wide Area Networks

Will only support the RSPduo in single tuner mode

Gnu Radio

Some limitations with tuner hardware control
Audio only via USB and HDMI audio
CPU load is quite high and may cause audio stuttering

RSPduo not currently supported
Port B is the default port for the RSP2

Will only support the RSPduo in single tuner mode

TCP Server - This is a fork of the RTL-SDR (TCP) server developed by f4fhh. This software should work with any client that supports the RTL-SDR (TCP) server software with some limitations. This software should be viewed as being for experimental purposes.
RSP2 works only on port A
RSPduo not supported
Maximum sample rate limited to 3.2 MHz
Some limitations with RSP1A RF gain control
