Re: AIS

Seems to work okay for me. It would be good if we could set the gain. When I use max gain I get strong interference from other stations, but at slightly lower gain the interference dissapears.

Re: Open Source Project

Interesting project. You should know that SDR# was never open source, the dev just released the code for free viewing only, but the code was always licensed. He removed the free viewing because people weren't paying attention to the licence and were stealing his code. I think what you need to look a...

Re: No compatible devices found

Yeah no RTL2832 in there, so not compatible. The one you linked on ebay should work. RTL2832U + R820T is the most common.

Re: white space scanner

To write your own software you'll probably need to use GNU Radio for your project, its a signal processing application that's compatible with the RTL-SDR.

Re: No compatible devices found

Can you open it up and check what chips are inside? There could be several versions of the TvGo.

Re: RTL+R820T2 direct sampling DLL

Try this newer modified driver, seems to work better than the direct sampling no-hw-mod dll.

See the comments on that post for some dll downloads.
