RSP_TCP Server ExtIO with HDSDR in wine

Postby nk2042 » Mon Feb 18, 2019 6:36 pm

Hi.

As a linux user I sometimes use HDSDR with wine with SDRs that have an extIO with network connection.

I tried your new ExtIO for RSP_TCP server with HDSDR in wine but it freezes at starting.

I have the same issue with the RTL_TCP ExtIO linked on the official HDSDR web site (https://github.com/hayguen/extio_rtl_tcp/releases/)

But, I use another fork of the RTL_TCP ExtIO successfully in my setup.
It can be found here: https://github.com/roseengineering/ExtIO_RTLTCP

It seems to have been developped specially for users with wine.

Do you think you can make changes in the RSP_TCP extIO plugin so it could work like this fork ?

It would add a great option for linux users for remotely acces RSP device on linux platform.

You can with the rsp_tcp driver-converter-server :lol:

There are several online including mine for use with websdr.org.

Here is mine: https://github.com/ON5HB/rsp_tcp

You can see it working: http://heppen.be:8091

Yes I know

It was the first RSP_TCP I tried successfully.

But I'm interested by the extented mode.
For now it's working like rtl-sdr dongle.

But I hope tech support will try to fix the it's extio so that it can be used with HDSDR in wine.

Yes, I agree that it would be good if the ExtIO for RSP_TCP server played nice on WINE. I haven't tried it with HDSDR or CubicSDR yet, but I recently set it up with SDRuno. It works fine on the local machine, but frequently 'freezes' when you try to change the IP address to a remote host. Even if you succeed in changing the IP address, it still appears to send traffic to localhost. If RSP_TCP is not running on the local host SDRuno fails to initialise properly and you can't configure it.

I appreciate that it was not targetted for Linux/WINE, but I agree that this improvement, if possible, would be worthwhile.

I finally managed to get it working.

I compiled RSPTCPServer on my main computer running ubuntu.

Connected my RSP and started th RSPTCPServer.

I then started HDSDR in wine with the ExtIO in the HDSDR folder.

Ant no more crash.

I think the first time the ExtIO is used you must have a RSPTCPServer on localhost otherwise it stays stalled.

I was able to change settings on the ExtIO: unchecked the autoconnect and persistent connection check boxes.

Now I'm able to connect to my remote RSPTCPServer.

Hello, i've make a SDR server with RaspberryPi3 and a RSP1A.
Unfortunately, i have some problems with the receptions because on my HDSDR with ExtIO (setted on 0,250MSPS) the audio and the receptions is intermittent and glitchy.
The internet connection on Raspberry is a DSL with 7MBit download and 0,7 MBit upload. There is a solution for fix it? Or the connection (specially the upload) is too slow?

Thanks

Hello Dario,
The problem is your upload speed. With 250 ksps and 16bit formatting, you need at least 4 Mbits/s. If you go back to 8 bit formatting (RTL standard), you still need 2 Mbits/s to use this through your aDSL as a WAN server.

Sincerely
