Re: No RTL devices available

Are you using the EXTIO version of SDRUno? If not it won't see any RTL devices because it isn't meant for them. Version 1.22 is the only one that has this capability.

Re: Driver installation failed on Windows 10

For some reason after the Windows 10 1903 update my dongle quit working and I got the same error message when trying to reinstall the driver with Zadig. USBDriverTool worked fine though.

Re: ExtIO_RTLSDR# - custom ExtIO for RTLSDR

If I recall correctly 1.22 was the first and only version with ExtIO capability but don't hold me to that.

Re: Dongle Case Temp. When Running ?

It's fine. The case acts like a heat sink to keep the dongle working at it's optimum operating temperature and it should be warm. I run mine 24/7 for ADS-B and I have no issues.

Re: Dongle Direct Sampling Mode ?

Scroll down to where it says "Software Settings" and the instructions are there. Q branch is what you are looking for to listen to HF. You must switch back to Quadrature to listen to VHF/UHF again.

Re: Dongle And Sigmira program ?

Yes, it does support the dongle. I suggest reading the manual. I wasn't very fond of it myself but to each their own.

Re: SDR# freezes spectrum and emits a high-pitched tone

You might want to consider checking your Device Manager too and look and see if there is more than one driv...

Re: Location of Folders and files

If you have downloaded SDR# run the install-rtlsdr.bat file and it will download the necessary files to run a RTL device including zadig into the same folder that you unzipped SDR# to. Otherwise you can just download zadig from here - https://zadig.akeo.ie/ This version from the website is newer tha...
