Re: Running a dongle on a networked PC ?

Well, *finally* got this sorted. Half the problem was me not fully understanding what I was doing :( Now I've RTFM, and as if by magic, my HDSDR installation works perfectly, and Team Viewer works beautifully. Set bandwidth to 1MHz and reduced colour to LOW, chose speed over quality, turned off Aero...

Re: Running a dongle on a networked PC ?

Sorted the deaf HF, Id not set the I/Q correctly.

Re: Running a dongle on a networked PC ?

As it happens the point is moot, my RTL cannot hear anything on HF bands :( VHF is fine, but HF is as dead as a proverbial :(

Re: Running a dongle on a networked PC ?

Thanks guys, food for thought, and a steep learning curve. Most of that was over my head TBH, but I can still learn ;)

Running a dongle on a networked PC ?

Morning all, 1st post here :) I have a bog standard £25 RTL dongle which I ideally need to run from my downstairs PC as the antenna connections are in the upstairs office. To save running extra coax I tried a USB/Cat6 extender but it didn't work. So, if I ran the software on my upstairs PC can I acc...
