Quick Start Guide

This page is a guide aimed at helping anyone set up a cheap radio scanner based on the RTL-SDR software defined radio as fast as possible on a Windows system. If you have any trouble during the installation, please see the troubleshooting guide further down the page. We also have brief instructions for getting started on Linux and OSX at the end of this page.

Please note that the RTL-SDR is not a plug and play device. You will need to have sufficient skills to perform basic PC operations such as unzipping files, installing software, moving and copying files and have the motivation to learn new software.

Equipment Guide

Currently, the most common RTL-SDR dongle is the R820T/R820T2 which usually sells for under $20 USD. See the Buy RTL-SDR dongles page for more information on purchasing.

Generally at least a dual core processor will be required to run most SDR software smoothly. Some command line software and ADS-B decoders may work on less powerful hardware.

To get the most enjoyment out of RTL-SDR you will need a decent antenna. Our packages that come with two telescopic antennas are a great start. Be sure to get them up high and place them on a metallic surface for best results. Units not sold by us may come with a smaller fixed length whip antenna that is okay for testing, but overall is not that great. As an upgrade for beginners who have the fixed length whip, a cheap bunny ears antenna mounted vertically should work well. Use the simple kind like this so that it can easily be mounted vertically. The most recommended outdoor antenna for general scanning is a scantenna or discone due to their wide band receiving properties. You can also cheaply build a wideband planar disk antenna (pdf warning) out of some metal pizza pans.

SDR# (SDRSharp) Set Up Guide (Tested on Windows 7/8/10 32/64 Bit) (XP Incompatible)

  1. Purchase an RTL-SDR dongle. The cheapest and best for most applications is the R820T/R820T2 dongle. Information on purchasing one can be found here.
  1. You must have the Microsoft .NET 4.6 redistributable installed to use SDRSharp. Follow the link and install the redistributable. Most Windows 10 PCs should already have this installed by default, but PCs with older operating systems may need this to be installed in order to run SDR#. Note that .NET 4.6 is not compatible with Windows XP. If you are running XP please scroll down and look for the HDSDR or SDR-Console install guides. Note that on some computers you may also need to install the Visual C++ Runtime if it is not already installed.
  1. SDRSharp is the easiest and most commonly used software defined radio software receiver for the RTL-SDR. Go to www.airspy.com and find the downloads button on the top menu. Under the “Core Tools” heading click on SDR# to download sdrsharp.zip.
  1. Extract (unzip) sdrsharp.zip to a folder on your PC. (Important! Many people who have issues forget this step! Do not run the files from within the zip file or the following steps will fail). (Also, do not extract into a folder within the Program Files directory, or installation may fail as these folders are often automatically made read only by Windows).
  1. Double click on install-rtlsdr.bat from within the extracted folder. This will start a command prompt that will download all the drivers required to make SDRSharp work with RTL-SDR. The command prompt will automatically close after a few seconds when it is done. It the bat file ran successfully the files rtlsdr.dll and zadig.exe will be downloaded into the SDR# directory. If they were not downloaded then your PC or anti virus solution may be misconfigured and may have trouble running batch files (Check that the folder is not read only, and not located in the Program Files directory). If install-rtlsdr.dll fails, do a manual driver installation.

install-bat_sdrsharp

  1. Plug in your dongle. Do not install any of the software that it came with (if any), and ensure that you wait a few seconds for plug and play to finish attempting to install the dongle (it will either fail or install Windows DVB-T drivers). If you’ve already installed the DVB-T drivers that came on the CD bundled with some dongles, uninstall them first.
  1. In the folder where you extracted the sdrsharp files find the file called zadig.exe. Right click this file and select “Run as administrator”.
  1. In Zadig, go to “Options->List All Devices” and make sure this option is checked.

zadig_1

  1. Select “Bulk-In, Interface (Interface 0)” from the drop down list. Ensure that WinUSB is selected in the box next to where it says Driver. (Note on some PCs you may see something like RTL2832UHIDIR or RTL2832U instead of the bulk in interface. This is also a valid selection). (Do not select “USB Receiver (Interface 0)” however).

zadig_3

  1. Click Replace Driver. On some PC’s you might get a warning that the publisher cannot be verified, but just accept it by clicking on “Install this driver software anyway”. This will install the drivers necessary to run the dongle as a software defined radio. Note that you may need to run zadig.exe again if you move the dongle to another USB port, or want to use two or more dongles together.

zadig_warning

  1. Open SDRSharp.exe (note that the first time you do this you may get a smartscreen message indicating that Windows has protected your PC, this is a false alarm. Simply click on “more info” and then “run anyway”). Set the drop down box in the “Source” tab on the top left to ‘RTL-SDR (USB)’.
  1. Press the Play button (the right facing triangle). Your rtl-sdr software radio should now be set up and ready to use! If everything has worked you should be able to start tuning to frequencies.

rtlsdrsource

  1. Important! Don’t forget to also adjust the RF gain settings by pressing the Configure button (looks like a cog) up the top next to the Play button. By default the RF gain is set at zero. A gain of zero will probably receive nothing but very strong broadcast FM – increase the gain until you start seeing other signals.

Next Steps

After getting your RTL-SDR set up with SDR# we recommend investigating the following:

  1. Check out all our featured articles on this blog for various RTL-SDR related projects and tutorials.
     
  2. Upgrade from the stock antenna. For optimal reception you should use an outdoor roof mounted antenna. The optimal antenna will depend on the frequency and project you are interested in, but for a general all purpose antenna we recommend a Discone or planar disk antenna (pdf).
     
  3. If you are using your RTL-SDR for HF with an upconverter such as the SpyVerter then we recommended using SDR# with the special decimation drivers. This will allow you to zoom in on the small bandwidth signals used on HF without loosing resolution.
     
  4. Check out our store for various RF accessories such as filters, LNA’s and antennas.

Troubleshooting

  • I get the error “No Device Selected” when trying to start the dongle in SDR#.
    Make sure you have run the install-rtlsdr.bat file, and that it has sucessfully downloaded the rtlsdr.dll file into the SDR# folder. If it is not downloaded, check that your folder is not set to “read only” (this sometimes happens automatically if you install into Program Files, so do not install into that folder). Another source of problems is if you have accidentally installed the WinUSB drivers to Bulk Interface 1 instead of with Zadig. If you have done this, then SDR# will not recognise your dongle. TO fix it go into device manager or Devices and Printers and uninstall the driver for Bulk Interface 1.
  • I get the error “No compatible devices found” when trying to start the dongle in SDR#
    Long low quality USB extension cables can sometimes cause this error. Some USB 3.0 ports are also incompatible with the dongle and cause this error. One user has had luck with this error by installing zadig from safe mode. Finally, there is a small chance that the dongle is actually faulty. If the dongle produces the same error on multiple computers the dongle is probably faulty and should be refunded or replaced.
  • I get the error “1 compatible devices have been found but are all busy”
    To fix this it may be necessary to reinstall the drivers via zadig and to try every USB port on the PC. You may want to also try disconnecting all other USB devices connected to the PC. Also some USB 3.0 ports are buggy, switch to a USB 2.0 port. Some users have also had success with installing everything from Windows safe mode. Make sure you are not selecting the “USB Receiver (Interface 0)” in zadig, and instead are selecting the Bulk in interface, or one that may say RTL2838UHIDIR or something else prefixed with RTL. If you don’t see this make sure that “Options->List All Devices” is checked and that “Ignore Hubs or Composite Parents” is unchecked.Another thing to try may be to disable Windows automatic driver installation. Instructions for disabling this can be found here. This error also sometimes occurs after the computer has been suspended – to fix it simply disconnect and reconnect the dongle.
  • I get the error “Unable to load DLL ‘rtlsdr': the specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)”
    Usually installing the Visual C++ Runtime solves this problem. Most PCs have this installed already, but if you are on a freshly installed version of Windows it may not have been installed yet.
  • There is a constant spike in the middle of the spectrum that won’t go away
    This is normal and is a side effect of the design of most RTL-SDR dongles. It can be removed algorithmically in the SDR# software by checking the “Correct IQ” box.
  • Zadig takes a long time to install the driver, then fails
    You have probably not run zadig in administrator mode. Make sure to right click zadig, and select “Run as Administrator”.
  • I don’t see Bulk-In, Interface (Interface 0)
    Ensure “Options->List All Devices” is checked and sometimes also that “Ignore Hubs or Composite Parents” is unchecked. Some people report seeing something else other than the bulk in interface. It may also show up as the brand of your dongle or something prefixed with “RTL”. This option should work too. In rare cases you may receive a faulty dongle that will not show up in Zadig no matter what USB port or computer you try it on. You should ask for a replacement in this case.
  • I don’t see RTL-SDR/USB in SDRSharp
    You may have downloaded a version without rtl-sdr support. Check that you have downloaded the official version from the airspy.com website.
  • USB 3.0 ports don’t work
    Unfortunately many USB 3.0 controllers are buggy and don’t work with some devices. Generally, USB 3.0 works fine with the RTL-SDR, but there are some controllers that will just not recognise the dongle. In this case use a USB 2.0 port instead.
  • When running install-rtlsdr.bat I get errors on the command line like “The system cannot find the file specified” and the sdrsharp folder is not downloaded
    This is probably because you did not unzip the files and you are trying to run install-rtlsdr.bat from within the zip file. Remember to extract the files first, before running them. 
  • When I run install-rtlsdr.bat a CMD/DOS window flashes on the screen briefly then disappears. Nothing is installed.
    There seems to be a bug or misconfiguration with some versions of Windows where batch files cannot be run. One way around this is to install the RTL-SDR drivers manually. We have instructions for this here: rtl-sdr.com/manual-installation-of-sdr. Some antivirus solutions are also overly restrictive and do not allow .bat files to be run. In this case either disable or install a better antivirus, or perform a manual driver install.
  • Zadig gives “System policy has been modified to reject unsigned drivers” error in Windows 8
    Windows 8 can cause signed driver issues with zadig. Some users report getting the error “System policy has been modified to reject unsigned drivers”. To solve this download and use the newer Zadig version 2.1 from here. (The newer SDR# install.bat downloads with Zadig 2.1 automatically)
  • Reception in SDR# seems very poor/receiver is insensitive
    Make sure you have increased the RF gain slider which can be accessed by clicking on the configure button. Also, in poor reception areas using the stock antenna indoors may not be sufficient. First test with the antenna placed up high outside. In some cases with the stock antenna the connection to the antenna can become disconnected in the antenna base causing unexpectedly poor reception. In rare cases if you still cannot receive any strong signals and another radio can, then you may have received a broken dongle and should ask for a replacement.
  • SDR# gives error “Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135).  Click OK to terminate.”
    This might mean that you do not have the correct .NET Framework installed.
  • SDR# gives error “Object reference not not to an instance of an object”
    This may mean that you do not have an audio driver properly installed on your PC, or that you do not have any output audio devices enabled. Enable them in the windows Sound Playback properties.
  • The dongle constantly disconnects from the USB port
    First test to make sure that it is not the fault of a dodgy USB extension cable by plugging the dongle directly into the PC. If it still disconnects often the dongle may be faulty and you should ask for a replacement.
  • The dongle won’t connect and the LED does not illuminate on models with an LED
    The dongle is faulty and should be refunded or replaced.
  • It seems that my PC is not powerful enough to run SDR# as it uses near 100% CPU
    For graphical GUI SDR software like SDR#, at least a dual core processor is recommended. If you have a borderline decent CPU and still experience high CPU usage, try reducing the sample rate to 1 Msps or less, reducing the FFT display resolution (or turning it off), turning off Correct IQ and reducing the filter order.
  • I used zadig but it broke my keyboard/mouse/other device somehow
    This is because you probably clicked the install button in Zadig after selecting the wrong device in the drop down menu. Make sure you select the correct RTL-SDR device, (Bulk-In Interface, Interface 0) first. Zadig overwrites previous drivers. To get the old drivers back you should be able to do so in Windows device manager, update driver software.
  • My R820T2 RTL-SDR shows up as an R820T when I run the diagnostic tool rtl_test
    The R820T2 and R820T are identical electronically except for some minor changes in the maximum IF filter widths. The different filters may be the reason the R820T2 has better performance. Thus a R820T2 will show up as an R820T on the PC, since there is no distinction between them in the digital part of the circuit. You can confirm that you have a R820T2 by checking the markings on the chip.
  • My antivirus shows SDR# as a virus.
    This is almost 100% a false positive. SDR# is updated often and thus a new .zip file is sometimes released almost daily. Poorly designed antivirus programs will sometimes assume that any file that is not downloaded often is a viruses. With SDR# being updated so often it takes a while for many people to download the new version and build up trust with the antivirus company.
  • The Mode selection buttons in SDR# are graphically glitching and I cannot click on them.
    Some users have found that this bug is caused due to selection of a “custom scaling level” or “custom sizing options” in Windows. Reset this option back to default in Windows display settings to fix the bug.
  • When closing SDR# I get an error like “An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access to the path ‘C:\Program Files\SDR\s14i12qq.tmp’ is denied. (C:\Program Files\SDR\SDRSharp.exe.Config) —> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path ‘C:\Program Files\SDR\s14i12qq.tmp’ is denied.”
    This is usually because you have copied the SDR# files into a folder that is read only. In Windows folders located in “C:\Program Files” are usually automatically read only. To fix, install SDR# into a non read only folder that is not located in Program Files, for example “C:\SDR”.
  • My dongle came with a remote control. What is it for?
    Some sellers opt to include the remote control that is used for changing TV channels. It is only useful for when the dongle is used for its original purpose – as a DVB-T HDTV receiver. The remote control has no purpose when the dongle is used as an SDR.

If you continue to have issues please feel free to post in the troubleshooting section of our Forums.

How to set the Gain

The gain can be adjusted in SDR# by clicking on the Configure button which looks like a cog. When tuning the RF gain you are trying to get the signal as strong as possible, whilst keeping the noise floor as low as possible. Start with a low gain setting, and slowly increase the gain slider. Watch in the frequency spectrum as the signal strength increases, but stop just before the point at which the noise floor starts to rise.

The noise floor is the part of the frequency spectrum where there are no signals.

Other SDR Windows Software Compatible with RTL-SDR

See the Software Guide for a big list of other compatible RTL-SDR software.

Getting Started on Linux

Linux instructions for installing the RTL-SDR libraries can be found at http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr.

After installing the libraries you will likely need to unload the DVB-T drivers, which Linux uses by default. To unload them temporarily type “sudo rmmod dvb_usb_rtl28xxu” into terminal. This solution is only temporary as when you replug the dongle or restart the PC, the DVB-T drivers will be reloaded. For a permanent solution, create a text file “rtlsdr.conf” in /etc/modprobe.d and add the line “blacklist dvb_usb_rtl28xxu”.

After installing the libraries and black listing the DVB-T drivers we recommend starting off with GQRX, a SDR program similar in operation to SDR#. It can be downloaded via the package manager in your Linux distribution or from http://gqrx.dk/download. We can now also recommend the multi-platform CubicSDR which can be downloaded from http://www.cubicsdr.com/.

If you want to install GNU Radio we recommend using Marcus Leech’s script by typing the following into terminal. This installs the RTL-SDR drivers as well.

wget http://www.sbrac.org/files/build-gnuradio && chmod a+x ./build-gnuradio && ./build-gnuradio

Note that if you want to run Linux in a virtual machine it has been reported that RTL-SDR performance with VirtualBox is rather poor due to it’s slow USB connection. VMWare Player on the other hand has good performance – just remember to set the USB controller to use the USB 2.0 protocol as by default it is set to USB 1.1.

Getting Started on OSX

As there is a severe lack of SDR software for OSX, we recommend using either Linux or Windows. However, GQRX is a SDR program that works well on OSX. Instructions for its installation on a Mac can be found on this post http://www.smittix.co.uk/rtlsdr-up-and-running-in-mac-osx-yosemite-with-gqrx-gnuradio.

We can now also recommend the multi-platform CubicSDR which can be downloaded from http://www.cubicsdr.com/.

    Probably asking for refund. I think the device has malfunctions

    Bought the version offered by the blog with a metal case and 2 X Antennas
    Was working ok for a few minutes (windows 7) but after clicking sometimes the buttons “Stop” and “Play” on SDR# i’ve got a problem: I cannot activate the dongle anymore to do any reading, because i get the error message “Cannot Access RTL Device”. It worked for total of about 30 minutes. I dont have a thermometer, but i have the impression the dongle is heating too much. even when not in use (but if connected to the USB)
    I installe the driver again, by using the zadig, but nothing helped my case. installed sdr# again, but nothing happens.

    Decided to install everything at my GF’s computer. the dongle was working fine, (she was windows 8) for about 5 minutes, then, i noticed that all the waterfall was showing only static, or white noise in all the frequencies
    no matter how much i browsed up or down in the frequency range. after that i couldn’t hear any transmission from whatsoever. decided to close and open SDR# again, but after opening it i get some message like “no device selected” after pressing “play” . Tried to install again the driver by using the zadig. but nothing happens. The device stills overheating.
    even when not in use (but connected to USB)
    Installed the SDR# again, but still no solution

    If i cant solve the problem will ask for refund. i think the device is broken

    I am try to use “DVBT” dongle. i fallowed the steps very carefully. but it unsuccessful. once i run the zdag.exe, under the dop down, it shows “dvb-t 2″. it doesn’t show bulk-in interface. every thing success when i try to install with dvb-t 2. but with SDRsharp, once i select rtl-sdr-usb, it says no device found. i checked all troubleshooting tips. but still unsuccessful. any comments from your side or any one use this dvb-t dongle.

    (This dongle is bit old for more than 2 years)

  3. Ben

    Everything works for me up until the part where I hit play. I get an error saying no device is selected, but when I go into settings, the drop-down menu for devices won’t even open. I have tried this on 2 computers following the same instructions, one running 10, the other running Vista. Any suggestions?

  4. Chad Taylor

    I have tried my NooElec on 3 different computers now and none of them will make this thing work at all. I cannot get even a transmitter in the same room to be received. I get some crazy static and I can see some forms showing on the waterfall during a transmit. It is crazy!!

    Hello, I have this problem:with Zadig.exe: when I right click this file and select “Run as administrator”, I can see ” C:/Users/…:/SDR/Zadig.exe isn’t a valid aplication of Win32″. Why? Can you help me?
    Samsung cpu I5 windows 7.
    Thanks. Fabrizio

    Hi, I just installed all the steps correctly and had no problems, until I opened SDR# for the first time, and I got a message that says, “There are no Creative audio products installed and running on the system that support ASIO.”

    I have a high-end computer running Windows 7.

    Hi,
    Thanks for writing such an informative and complete guide, Despite my complete lack of Windoze knowledge I managed with ref to your instructions to set the software up on a fellow amateurs laptop, he is playing with the software with a big smile on his face as I write this.
    Thanks once again.

    • Hugh

      Had same issues with the latest SDR sharp, with Win7 SP1 and the 4.6.1 .NET stuff (zadig works, driver installed, but SDRsharp refuses to see the driver, and gives E4000 as device, and does not see R820T).
      Fortunately, I had an earlier SDRsharp (v 1.0.0.1126) which does not use NET 4.6. Copied over, and all was well again! Using earlier version works every time!
      Conclusion: zadig seems to load driver OK, Problem seems to be between driver and .NET4.6.1..??

    • Hugh

      Thanks Jimmy… this also worked for me..
      “Download the dll’s at http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/raw-attachment/wiki/rtl-sdr/RelWithDebInfo.zip tmp\RelWithDebInfo.zip and extract the files from the x32 folder into the SDR# folder.”

      Did this, replacing the original files in the directory even through I am running win7 64. The device appears now as “Generic RLT2932U OEM (0) “. One other thing I noticed with the non-working setup, in the configuration setup, with the RTL controller, the name would give a detectable flash every second, as if it was constantly searching. This has now stopped, with “Generic RLT2932U OEM (0)” appearing to not flash.
      Hope these comments are of use to others! good luck everyone.

    The RTL-SDR Controller window, which pops up when the configureButton-cog-gear icon
    is clicked on,shows E4000 not the R820T chip which comes with the RTL-SDR Blog
    ‘R820T RTL2832U 1PPM TCXO’ dongle. Also the Device window is blank. Could this
    be why I get an “An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access to the path
    C:\Program Files (x86)\SDRsharp-x86\fmgptr4s.tmp is denied
    (C:\Program Files (x86)\SDRsharp-x86\SDRSharp.exe.Config).” error message?

    • admin

      Sounds like something is very wrong with your SDR# install. Can you try other software like HDSDR or SDR-Console and see if they work? Also what OS, and SDR# version are you using, and did you follow the quickstart guide?

    • Matt

      My device is coming up as E4000 as well but I am getting the “No Device Selected” error. I’ve attempted every fix suggested here and elsewhere with no luck. Running Windows7 64bit. The only source to this problem that I can reasonably assume to be the culprit would be the .net 4.6 being “blocked” from installation. I am going to attempt to track down an older version of SDR# before the 4.6 change and see if that helps.

      • Matt

        *UPDATE* After installing windows updates and the .net 4.6 framework, I continued to receive the “No Device Error”. I decided to try HDSDR instead and was able to install/run successfully. After playing around with HDSDR for a while I went back to SDR# and IT WORKS NOW!
        I suspect Zadig was not able to load the drivers correctly in SDR# but once it was run to install HDSDR it achieved its function. Hopefully this will help some of you that are experiencing this same error.

        • Paul

          I have done everything mentioned:
          1. disabling driver signature enforcement
          2. loading HDSDR
          3. reloading drivers with ZADIG.
          Nothing is working to get SDR# working. I can get HDSDR working, but not SDR#. It continues to show the error “No Device Selected”

          • admin

            Is there a file called rtlsdr.dll inside the SDR# folder? Did you run install-rtlsdr.bat?

            I’ve discovered recently that the error in the OP’s question is related to installing the SDR# files in a read only directory, like in Program Files. This can prevent the install-rtlsdr.bat file from running correctly, and thus the dll files won’t be downloaded. Move the SDR# folder into a non read only folder like in C:\.

            • Pete

              Same here. HDSDR works fine, but SDR# does not. I followed everything above, to the letter, repeated it again, and I still get the “No Device Selected” error.

    • James

      Make sure SDR# is not running. Run ZAdig and click ‘options’ and select list all devices. Then select RTL2838UHIDIR. Next, click on reinstall driver. Once that is done, launch SDR# and try it again. This is what resolved the problem for me. Let me know if this has helped.

    • admin

      1) Did you run install-rtlsdr.bat and confirm that rtlsdr.dll is in your SDR# folder?

      2) Check that you have not accidentally installed a driver with zadig to Bulk Interface 1. If you install a driver to that interface it seems to cause trouble.

  9. manyacarb

    Got the same problem as napalm post, after clicking on play I get “no device selected”. Don’t have older version of SDRsharp but I am looking for that,
    Regards

  10. Napalm

    Got a weird issue. I’ve got an older version of SDR# that works fine, but just today I downloaded the new version of SDR# that was released recently. Now it says “no device selected”. Everything is still fine and working with the old version.

    • admin

      Run install-rtlsdr.bat, the install procedure changed in recent versions. After you’ve run it confirm that it worked correctly by checking if there is an rtlsdr.dll file in the SDR# folder.

    • James

      Make sure SDR# is not running. Run ZAdig and click ‘options’ and select list all devices. Then select RTL2838UHIDIR. Next, click on reinstall driver. Once that is done, launch SDR# and try it again. This is what resolved the problem for me. Let me know if this has helped.

  11. praneeth

    according your quick guide i installed drivers using “zadig.exe”.
    next step in configuration window of sdrsharp application not allowing to select other devices it fixed at E4000.
    when i play the radio there comming a dialog-box with no devices selected.
    please help me to go forward

    • Lynne

      I’m also having this exact same problem. I’ve tried two different laptops and two different dongles on each and it happens every time. I have no idea why because it was working fine last week until someone must have deleted SDR Sharp and I had to reinstall it today.

      Can someone please help?

        • jaake

          Same problem, everything has been installed already few times. Sharp is newest version .1427, zadig has been used for usb-drivers(few times). net4.6 is installed.

          .bat has been used also used few times, there’s something strange with that, it doesn’t seemingly do nothing. In 30 min it doesn’t dl anything in temp-folder or update anything.

          Dongle is dxpatrol mk3, rtl 2838U. Pc is Windows 7 sp1 64bit. There’s also sdr v2 in computer, could it somehow affect to sdrsharp?

          • admin

            Something is very wrong if the bat file stays open for 30 mins. It should open, download the files and then close in under 1 minute. Make sure you’re connected to the internet and that the bat file is not being blocked by a firewall or antivirus program. SDR V2 won’t affect the operation of SDR#.

  12. Sonnie

    My cab company does NOT use Voice transmissions anymore. They send orders on the MDT screen and drivers accepts the orders if they want to.

    I just ordered this RTL SDR dongle. Will i still be able to use it in anyway in my cab ????

    • admin

      If there is a decoder written for your MDT, or you can write one yourself then it is possible. The software called “Taxi MDT Decoder” may already do this for you if your company uses Auriga or Autocab.

  13. Theo Bosch

    Good day,
    If I am off topic, sorry, but I need to know to increase the waterfall/frequency spectrum bandwidth? Currently it is only about 1.5MHz but I would like to increase it up to what the RTL dongle and my pc is capable of, which I believe is substantially bigger. Regards

  14. Kirk

    Thanks for all of the great tutorials! I managed to get my RTL-SDR USB dongle working with SDSharp, HDSDR, and SDRConsole without much trouble at all. When I did goof up, I looked here again and usually found out that I had skipped a listed step in the set-up.

  15. ROSS C.

    I tried using an old and inexpensive terratec dongle, followed the whole instruction and WORK WELL ON WIN 10! (recently free upgraded from win 8).
    I state that dongle worls only as SDR tuner and can’t do tv tuner function at the same time.
    I’m wondering to buy a better antenna, the provided one works well for fm wide commercial stations, but i can’t receive no other signals.
    Wich one is the best prize for bucks?
    Maybe an external discone?
    Someone can answer me?

  16. asdf

    there is problem with current driver for rtl-sdr to connect through window 7. There is another way to connect rtl-sdr manually through window except zadig

  17. Gabriela G

    Hello! I want to log files with RTL1090, but it writes in file with a buffer, and i need it to write in real time, without delay. Can i set this buffer zero?

  18. Goobius

    I am trying to use a KWorld USB Tuner KW-UB435-Q and SDR# says No Compatible Devices. The thing is the drivers successfully installed through Zadig. Is this tuner compatible? Has anyone been able to use it?

    Thanks!

    • admin

      Does that dongle have a RTL2832U chip and compatible tuner inside? I quickly Googled it and it looks like it’s an ATSC receiver – only RTL2832U DVB-T dongles will work.

      Zadig will install drivers on anything, it’s not really a driver, more like a place holder for a custom driver that is provided with the software like with SDR#.

      • Goobius

        Thanks for the response! I had this laying around but I wasn’t able to locate the information you did. Are there other options available for this type of dongle or is this only done on RTL tuners?

  19. On5AM

    Hi,
    I don’t understand why on my laptop, the RTL-SDR dongle works very well. Now on new PC, I can’t see or hear anything? yet I have installed the right key on the new PC. Do you think that the new Os win 7 professional at something to do?
    Help me please ?

    • admin

      There could be a number of reasons. Try some of the suggestions in the troubleshooting section above, even if it isn’t directly for your problem.

      • On5AM

        Tks for reply.
        Sorry, but when I make the choice, I don’t see Bulk-in, Interface (Interface 0) How see it ?

        • MarioMan

          Ensure “Options->List All Devices” is checked and that “Ignore Hubs or Composite Parents” is unchecked. Some people report seeing something else other than the bulk in interface. It may also show up as the brand of your dongle or something prefixed with “RTL”. This option should work too. In rare cases you may receive a faulty dongle that will not show up in Zadig no matter what USB port or computer you try it on. You should ask for a replacement in this case.

  20. Bob

    Well, pretty effective way to consume a lot of hours. Works amazingly well for a $10 investment. Couple issues. I’m no Windows guru but do have a couple decades experience. The Zadig thing for installing the driver. I’ve never had a driver install that weird or that long. I suppose I could look up why but somebody might know offhand.

    Also, it trashed my keyboard driver. Had to reboot to get it back. Mouse kept working. This is on Win7. I think maybe I’ll bring up an older machine for playing with this.

  21. j

    I was thinking of getting one of these dongles but after reading these problems I doubt I will, its a shame im a extra class ham from the old days when you needed to know something about radios and antennas, but like everything else instead of having too work hard, they just make it easier. But the dongles sound like fun, to bad there a pain in the ass to set up.

    • admin

      They’re pretty easy to set up in i’d say 95% of cases, but like with anything to do with computers, when something goes wrong you’ll need decent computer skills to figure it out.

    • Gordonjcp

      So, you’re an oldschool amateur from when people used to have to work at things to get on the air, but you don’t want to put any work into using an RTLSDR?

      Jeez, and people wonder why the hobby is dying, with shining examples like you to look up to…

    “No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:1234″ That’s the message I get when pressing Play on SDR#1.0.0.1318

    install.bat is giving me file not found error. Every other batch file works normally. I’m using W7x64 FI.
    What to do?

  25. Brian

    I run 4 dongles and 2 upconverters on one computer. I use SDRSHARP ,SDR V2, and HDSDR and SEEDER.
    I have had no trubles with this. each one is on a seperate screen ,I have to load them in this way ,,(1) Sdrsharp (2)
    Sdr v2, (3) HDSdr , (4) SeeDer .. Conected to USB on computer ..Useing ship plotter and plane plotter at same time .. So Far so good .. It went wrong when I first started but sorted it out ,,

    Howdy
    I have 2x $9 dongles on one pc ( w7x64 ) working extremely well
    I can run two instances of SDR# and use both concurrently, it’s sweet

    some things I’ve noticed:
    My setup works only when both dongles are connected directly to the usb ports on the desktop,
    1. it doesn’t work very well through a (good quality) usb 2 hub with one or two dongles , despite re-running zadig etc, the dongle/s are detected and drivers look fine but SDR# says they are busy :(
    2. DSD+ VIA Vac is working beautifully!!!! plenty of p25 around me, salt cops are encrypted but it’s nice to run one dongle in analog mode and the other into vac to shop up the digital
    3. The sweet thing is I’ve found a broad band Mast head rf preamp with multiple outputs and even with my discone sitting inside my tin shed both tuners get great reception – use a preamp people
    4. Use the frequency scanner mod, it’s freaking awesome particularly with the above setup

    I’m currently looking for a way to run both dongles perhaps from raspberry pis or something

    I’m using good quality rg6 and f connectors etc

    I love sdr#

    mike

    • Dale

      I also had a similar problem with the device being detected but SDR# giving a device is busy error. This was on a computer (laptop) it had worked on in the past. Finally I unplugged ALL other USB devices and it worked fine. I think this is a power issue. If your getting the device is busy error, try removing all other USB devices, and/or a powered USB hub.

      Hi
      I have a question. I would like to start this is a great product it works great. I wanted to get creative and buy a usb to IP converter. It allows me to attach hard drives, webcams and other devices to a USB port them place it on the network. I thought I could set one up by the antenna and be able to go anywhere in the house with the laptop or even use port fordward to send it out across the Internet. The usb to ip device is working correctly with all other devices it even recognizes the NooElec. When I try to connect I receive “no RTLSDR devices found” has anyone else tried this and been successful. It is an SIIG USB over IP converter.
      Thanks for any advice gary.

      • admin

        Not sure if that will work. Most people who do remote dongles use a Raspberry Pi or similar at the antenna, and use that to stream data over the network.

        • Gary

          Thanks for the quick reply. I have been researching the raspberry pi for another project I may pick one up. If I have any luck with the USB to ip converter I’ll post an update.
          Thanks again
          Gary

  28. Dennis

    I used the latest Zadig to set the drivers for my Nooelec USB device. It all seems to work but when I load SDR-RADIO version 2.2 from the site, there is no pulldown under Search called RTL SDR (USB) There is only the RTL SDR (TCP). What am I doing wrong. Also I tried to load version 2.1 and twice it said there was a virus in the down load. There is something different between it and Version 2.2 that was first loaded.
    Thanks.

    2. SDR SHARP has stoped working…

    Please help me…

  30. TomSawyer

    Hi, please I need help I’m having problems on Windows 8 with this device from YEARS. I followed the guide, did the “Advanced Reboot” thing and everything worked, but when i start SDRSharp (as Administrator) anche choose the device I keep getting an error. It says “1 compatible device have been found and are all busy”. With every DVB software I just can’t receive any signal. What can I do?
    Thanks!

    • DanielG

      I get the error “1 compatible device have been found and are all busy” when I use an USB 3.0 port on my motherboard. So try connecting it in a USB 2.0 port. Worked for me.

      • Mike C

        So far I am not having luck with the device is busy error. Unfortunately my laptop does not have any USB ports, and I have tried using a USB 2.0 hub with no success as well. I’ve done a lot of searching on this to no avail, so advice from anyone who has been able to get their device to work on a USB3.0 port would be greatly appreciated.

    • Bill

      Mines running on Win 10 and when I get that message I normally had a couple of instances of the program still running in task manager. Killing those off or removing the dongle and plugging it back in got rid of the error.

  31. Mike

    I’m having trouble getting going.when I run install.bat. Line 1 downloading Zadig looks OK line two states that “httpget” is unrecognized. A few lines later the system can not find the path or file. Nothing gets installed. I’m running windows 7 enterprise version. I made sure microsoft.NET is on the computer. The*. bat file is from 5/31/2014. Maybe something was changed. Regardless any help would be appreciated. Thanks
    Thanks

    • admin

      The normal procedure runs fine on my PC still. Is there httpget.exe and unzip.exe in the same folder as install.bat? Make sure you’re not running out of a zipped folder.

    • mjidhage

      I have the same problem. Using latest SDR# (fresh install) and HackRF One (directly out of the box) on Win8. Tried both USB3 and USB2 ports. Have installed WinUSB with Zadig.

      Will keep googling for solutions but so far nothing appropriate. Saw a tip on using the SDR# nightly build but it appears to be identical to the normal install. Anyone with ideas?

        Yes that’s why it’s down. Seems people were stealing his licenced code that he made public for educational purposes. Don’t know if he will ever restore the SVN unfortunately.

        • Richard

          not exactly sure how monodevelop handles the sln file but I’ve been trying to find a work-around using the download from SDRsharp.com. Any chance of a work-around existing?

          • admin

            I doubt it, you need the source code to compile it using Mono. The download from the SDR# website is just the Windows binary at the moment.

          • Pam

            I was hoping to be able to run SDRSharp.exe while booted into Ubuntu Desktop 12.04.4 64-bit LiveCD to test out my two new dongles. I roughly followed this guide,

            http://blazehook.tumblr.com/post/62184078037/how-to-setup-sdrsharp-in-wine.

            It was a struggle to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. Seemingly, I was able to make some progress with the various dependencies currently available under, sudo apt-get install wine1.6, using the accompanying version of winetricks with a 32-bit wineprefix. But SDRSharp.exe crashes.

            I was able to at least test my new RTL-SDR dongle while booted with the same LiveCD with a slimmer, more efficient program, rtl_fm,

            http://kmkeen.com/rtl-demod-guide/

            and estimate roughly that my dongle calibration should be something like 114 PPM. With only the enclosed antenna, I can receive analog UHF transmissions on our campus security channel, 508.1875e6 Hz. I’m trying to figure out whether I can use sox to increase the audio gain. Commercial FM radio, 100.0e6 Hz, comes in loud and strong.

            Next will be exploring Unitrunker for APCO-25.

            • NM

              @Pam

              Did you get Unitrunker to work in WINE? I’ve got it launching but can’t get it to see the dongles. Followed the steps regarding the import of reg keys at WineHQ, but to no avail.

    Hi.
    Just tried to install RSDSharp on Linx Mint 16 but not succeeded.
    All went right untill the command :
    sed -i ‘s/<!– <add key=”RTL-SDR </ USB” value=”SDRSharp.RTLSDR.RtlSdrIO,SDRSharp.RTLSDR” \/> –>//’SDRSharp.exe.config
    It gave me error
    sed: -e expression #1, char 106: unknown option to `s’

    What is wrong here.
    I’m noob in linux so the cryptic commnd doesn’t say me anything
    Help please

    • admin

      Hi, sorry there is a problem with the formatting of the text on the tutorial. The HTML escape characters are messing up the text on that line.

      An alternative to that line is to just open SDRSharp.exe.config in a text file, find the line that contains the text SDRSharp.RTLSDR.RtlSdrIO,SDRSharp.RTLSDR, and uncomment it by removing the surrounding <!-- --> characters.

    hello adimn please help me ….**Your Dongle is either not connected or not working properly.**
    On that note I finish the installation, letter by letter as described in the tutorial. Now it is time to start your radio! I bring up your radio. Before I turn it on I see the following options in “Front End”

    (1) FUNcube Dongle (2) SoftRock / Si570 (3) RTL-SDR / RTL 2832U
    or (4) Other.

    No matter which option I select, your software hangs, then it hands me
    the following error message:

    “Your Dongle is either not connected or not working properly.”

    Like others I have Tried 2 different PC’s win xp, 7 and 8.1 and always a not valid 32 bit program error pops up when Zadig is run as admin, tried compatability modes and still nothing.

    As other say save yourself the grief and get something different such as a softrock or a real SDR.

    Don’t waste money on this piece of junk, why frustrate yourself with crap when there are better plug and play SDR’s

    Okay, I admit that I am not the most tech savoy person, but I have spent a whole day trying to get the nooelec sdr dongle working. So far I have tried to install it on the XP, vista, and windows 7 systems without success.

    I believe that the driver for the dongle is installed on the win7 system, but the sdrsharp.exe does not exist. Actually, the sdrsharp.exe file doesn’t exist on any of the installations. I have gone over the quick guide, as well as several other instructions, over and over, and I’ll be darned if I can figure out what I’m missing.
    At this point I’m looking at this as throwing 40 bucks away. (bought 2)
    I never would have bought these sdr receivers if I had known that they didn’t come with the needed software, or even the instructions on how to make the darn thing work. I received the dongle, the antenna, and the remote, and that’s it. What, everyone is supposed to know how to install this very difficult to understand piece of equipment? Just my opinion, but unless you went MIT…stay away from this product. Not old guy friendly, that’s for darn sure.

    • admin

      SDR is an “off label” use of these dongles, so there are usually no provided instructions, apart from those given on the internet, like this guide.

      After you’ve run install.bat, sdrsharp.exe will be inside the newly created sdrsharp folder, the same folder where you ran zadig.exe. If for some reason it really isn’t there, try run install.bat again to re-download everything.

    • Chris

      Don’t give up yet!!! I know this is an old post but, no one has mentioned the driver conflicts with IDT HD Audio soundcard that comes on some machines. I’ve been trying to install HDSDR to use the RTL-SDR dongle and I’m up against the wall with the driver issue. You might be having the same problem. I’m going to try to remove this high def audio stuff to see if the drivers will work. I’m surprised no one has said anything about this yet. My machine is a few years old so, it shouldn’t be a new problem.
      Anyway, Good luck and if anyone else out there has any experience with the IDT stuff please make a sound.

    PLT: Save yourself a few bucks and buy your dongle direct from Nooelec. US based, fast shipping – good folks. Same exact device – just a few less bucks to get it compared to the Amazon offering.

    Just bought 6 of these things and most all of us here in the office have ‘em setup now. Listing to everything from Broadcast FM, the wireless mikes in the training rooms to the local hams. Good stuff works well!

    I installed everything on my Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. Zadig install went fine but when I try to configure RTL-SDR/USB in the player software, it tells me that either the device is not connected or the driver software is not working properly. I have uninstalled and re-installed the driver several times with the same result. Thoughts? Thanks.

  46. Bruce Hoenig

    I was running into many of the problems with the various EXTIO messages. To resolve this, I had to uninstall ALL of the various dll’s recognized by Windows 7 regarding the U2832. I had to do this 5 or 6 times and always selecting to “Delete the driver software for this device”.

    When I started, the device was recognized as a Realtek U2832 and the only program that I could get to work was SDR Console. Programs such as HDSDR and SDR# all kept complaining about being unable to use the device.

    Now the device is showing up as a pair of bulk interface devices.

      This happens alot. Make sure youre not connected to internet , windows likes dl the drivers without asking. This worked for me.

  47. Brent

    I am trying to install the bat file associated with the software. My zipfile software first says the publisher isnot verified, then it says that it encountered a problem. I am saskedwhether or not I want to see the details. When I do, it simply says that the user has chosen to stop the process. I am using a windows 7 lapto.

    There’s another problem. When I plug in the dongle, I hear a sound indicating it is connected, but nothing pops up. The first time I plugged it in, it said it couldn’t install the drivers that came with it. What’s wrong.

  48. Brian

    HI,
    I have installed SDRSharp on my Acer Laptop running Windows XP & installed OK but when I click the .exe to start it reports “Failed to initialize (0xc0000135)”. As a radio ham I am using it with my SSB rig. It works 100% on another laptop with Windows 7. Any ideas folks ?

    When the SDR reception works than the DVB-T reception doesn’t work
    and vice versa.
    The driver of the one excludes the other
    Is there a solution ?

    Thank you for an eventual reply

    W.R

  51. WELTER René

    When my Nooelec dongle works for SDR, DVB-T reception is not possible
    and if DVB-T reception works, SDR reception doesn’t.
    I use 1 USB slot for SDR and anoter one for DVB-T (on a VAIO vista)
    Always I have to install again the correspondent driver again.

    Does anyone know a solution so that I can either run SDR or DVB-T without installing the driver again.

    Thank you for info

    • tehrasha

      I know of no way to make Windows use multiple drivers with a single device.
      You might be able to get away with having a 2nd dongle (especially if it were a diff manufacturer), and force it to use the DVB-T driver while your original uses the SDR. But I do not know what will happen when you reboot…

      • Welter René

        Hi tehrasha

        Your info is explaining the problem and makes the situation clear.
        thank you very much for clearing up the things.
        Should you see a solution in the future please let us know
        René

        • TacticalNinja

          You can try setting up the SDR dongle in a virtual machine or something. So while your main PC has the original software installed, you can use the RTLSDR capabilities on the VM.

    Hi again. Well I know I have everything set up correctly because I am scanning quite nicely. I also now VB Cable is working correctly also because I tested it and it passed the tests. However, I still cannot get any scrolling/decoding of P25 signals on DSD. I am beginning to think it is because the signal it just not strong enough even though my discone is up 40 feet and I am only 15 miles from the police tower. The P25 signals are only peaking at about -30 to -50 db on SDR Sharp. Would you agree that the signals are not strong enough for DSD to hear? Any other advice? Hey, at least the dongle and all the software works nicely!

  56. Amey

    Today I received my RTL SDR..I followed the instructions mentioned above and I could listen to local FM radio stations in sdrsharp. I had a query on the installation procedure. I didn’t install the drivers which came in the CD instead followed the steps mentioned in the above link. Now everytime i connect the device to my PC I get a notification that new device is found and the windows installation popup comes up. Which I cancel everytime. Is this normal? Do u get same popup when you connect ur device everytime?

    • admin

      I don’t get that notification unless I plug it into a different USB port each time. Not sure why it would you’re getting that message if you’re plugging it into the same port. Perhaps running Zadig again might help.

  57. hamid1661

    when i Open SDRSharp.exe and Set the drop down box at the top next to the Play button to ’RTLSDR / USB’,this promt is show (rtl-sdr/usb is either not connected or its driver is not working properly

    • Matt

      I get the same message “rtl-sdr/usb is either not connected or its driver is not working properly”, I’m using Win7 and a Terratec and have followed the instructions exactly as described above. Any help please! Thanks, Matt

  58. erich

    Hi and thanks for all info on this page,

    I wonder if anybody has a link for a cable with needed adapters already on it needed for antenna of type diamond x-30 which I purchased some time ago. I intend to use it with my Terratec dongle and I cannot to find info on the web. I bougt some different cables/adapters already from ebay but they didn’t fit together.. So since I am not into soldering I am looking for some links or info where I can get a functional cable.

    Thanks

  59. Joe

    Before I found this site, I bought the dongle, but, not knowing better, nstalled the software supplied with it.

    How can I remove all traces of that install from my Windows 7 system?

    • admin

      Go to add remove programs and remove the Realtek driver there first, and then if necessary under Devices and Printers, find the RTL device, right click go to properties – > Hardware -> Properties -> Change Settings, and then uninstall the drivers from there.

  60. Gisle Vanem

    I’ll try again. The quote didn’t get in.

    Plug in your dongle and do not install any of the software that it came with, ..

    That has confused me and frankly piss*ed me off. Why is the USB situation on Windows so horrid? Is it libusb-drivers (Zadig) that need exclusive access to the device or what?

    • admin

      Hi Gisele, something to know about these dongles is that they are not actually designed for SDR purposes. They are a mass produced device intended for watching DVB-T HDTV on a PC. What experimenters have done however, is created a special third party driver to enable SDR capabilities. The software and drivers most dongles come with are the official ones from the manufacturer that will only allow DVB-T HDTV to be watched.

      So in a nutshell: to get SDR, use Zadig, to get DVB-T TV use the CD it comes with.
