Re: Data buffering of rtl

That likely means your computer is too slow to run the program. The processing can't keep up with new data, and a backlog of events/callbacks is created that gets bigger and bigger. You probably need a faster computer, or you could try reducing sample rate of the SDR.

Re: Trouble with GNU Radio and RTL-SDR on Windows

Solved the issue by reverting to an older version of GNU Radio.

Latest/broken version: v3.7.13.5/v1.6
Working older version: v3.7.11.1/v1.3

Hope this helps anyone else with the same issue.

Now I'm getting an actua...

Trouble with GNU Radio and RTL-SDR on Windows

I'm trying to get a basic setup of GNURadio working with the RTL-SDR on my Windows 7 x64 machine. I'm using the latest pre-built binary windows installer of GNURadio: http://www.gcndevelopment.com/gnuradio/downloads.htm The basic signal source/sink block examples are working fine. But I'm having tro...

Re: zadig.exe error

Maybe re-download it and try again... could have been corrupted.

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...
