Re: Error When Turning On Bias-T

Executables run fine, thanks! Didn't use the .bat file, but running "rtl_biast.exe" without parameters for the first time shows "BiasT Always ON".

Re: Error When Turning On Bias-T

Used "rtl-tcp -T" (OSMOCON binary) and was able to receive NOAA and FM, so is working. Thanks tim_rtd, read about it and forgot. :D Tested with a short USB cable to v3 dongle, then LNA, then antenna coaxial cable to antenna. Now need to make it permanent.

Thanks for the info, will check it out tomorrow.

I searched for years for an LNA and only found boards that required external power (and no case).

Wanted to use the v3 dongle again, so lets see.

Re: Error When Turning On Bias-T

Same error. Tried moving the folder to another partition, no change.

I can run the executables from OSMOCOM and the dongle is working, but these files don't include a rtl_biast.exe.

Re: Error When Turning On Bias-T

Downloaded .NET 4.0 standalone installer, but when I tried running it, got the message:

"1. Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is already a part of this operating system. You do not need to install the .NET Framework 4 redistributable."

Re: Error When Turning On Bias-T

Windows 10

Which version exactly because I have 4.8 and software says 4.0 -> Upgraded to 4.8

Will check if older 4.0 can coexist with 4.8

Error When Turning On Bias-T

Getting errors when running any of the executables in the bt-driver package (also using Administrator: Command Prompt). Downloaded SDR# and ran .bat file, which downloaded Zadig and rtlsdr.dll, but I had the dongle USB driver installed manually before that using Zadig 2.4. S173.png S174.png S175.png
