Re: MATLAB ... but what about C# ....

I write C# code for the RTL-SDR. The link by rtlsdrblog is a good one, you can also browse the source code for an older version of SDR# here: https://github.com/cgommel/sdrsharp It involves using dllimport like this: public const string LibRtlSdr = "rtlsdr.dll"; [DllImport(LibRtlSdr, EntryPoint = "r...

Re: Big problem whit SDR# software

Just posted the same answer on another thread, but it might apply here too: It might be the speed of your computer limiting things. SDR# is not nearly as efficient as HDSDR on older machines. If it sounds choppy and you're seeing a full core of CPU loading (25% for quad-core, 50% for dual-core, etc)...

Re: Trouble receiving anything?

I've just started using sharp# and am not having great luck with it,, (will work on it today) but the way to see if everything is right might be to install HDSDR.. I found it very easy to set up and run and (with a little help from here) I get great signals and the entire band (make sure in the RTL...

keenerd rtl-sdr error: disabling direct sampling returns error code

I'm trying out keenerd's fork of the rtl-sdr library, calling functions from the dll in code.
