Hi,
as I have the same issue in several SDR programms looks to me like an issue with the driver, so I posted here.

I using a SDRplay RSP1A to receive Es'Hail2/QO-100 which working fine, but when I try to enter the LO Frequency shift to get the correct Frequency shown this wont work. If I use lower values i.e. 150MHz it works OK, so seems to be a limitation of the needed value of 9750MHz

Tested with SDRuno 1.22, SDRconsole V3

Is there any way to work around this limitation? Or do I need some updated drivers?

Hi,
I opened as well a support ticket and response was

...
Thank you for contacting SDRplay Support. Yes, having the final VFO frequency displayed is a limitation within SDRuno. This is something we are looking to add into a future release of SDRuno.

I do not have a release timeframe.

From my view this is not only a issue of SDRuno, it seems to be a driver issue as I have same with other SDR software, so seems to be a driver issue.
As long as the real Frquenzy is within the RX range of the SDRplay it works as it should, as soon as I use a LO bring me out of the RX range it won't work.
