Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

Well I found where the wxtoimg config file is stored (even after uninstall)...it is under c:/Users/.../AppData/Roaming. I deleted it and uninstalled everything (SDR#, VB audio and wxtoimg) and then reinstalled. Image looks exactly the same (choppy random sync loss). It is not a calibration issue or ...

Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

Thanks for the help...I tried this as well...however, What do you mean "take down all your wxtoimg settings before you uninstall it" ? I did notice that wxtoimg retains some settings even after uninstalling. Do you know where these settings/config is located? I searched and cannot find it By the way...

Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

From my understanding, Resync corrects for doppler type (constant) shifting?...not the random jjittery left-right loss of sync. I have played with this quite a bit and even run through the wxtoimg "calibration" which only corrects for a constant, gradual sync shift.

Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

Thanks! I appreciate the help. Unfortunately, these things didn't solve the problem...I just tried N19 with sync/resync. I also closed every program that was running and looked at task manager while the program was running and nothing is taking CPU processing during the decode (at least not more tha...

Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

I appreciate the reply...unfortunately, it still seems to have an issue...even with the settings you propose (see snapshot).

I just tried to capture N19

Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

Also, I ran zadig again and verified the RTL-SDR driver...this is what is showing

I'm at my wits end here...

Re: RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

Another example of trying to capture image (NOAA 15). This is what it looks like during the capture.

RTL SDR NOAA weather sat decoding

I have been using the RTL-SDR dongle and SDR# to capture NOAA satellite images for quite a while...example 1 below. I route the audio through the VB-audio Virtual cable into wxtoimg software. However, recently the images have started to be unsync'd...example 2 below. The zigzagging is so bad that th...
