Re: Can't get the SDR driver to install

Try using this alternative tool http://visualgdb.com/UsbDriverTool/ to install the WinUSB drivers. I'm not sure what that zadig error message means.

Re: Unknown signals @4XXMhz

What country are you from?

First one might be DAB, though it seems to be outside of the usual frequency range.

Second one is just noise from the USB clock, you'll find this type of noise at multiples of 480 MHz.

Re: SDR# error on startup. Please help :-)

Did you run the install-rtlsdr.bat file (step 5)? Dunno if you can run it in your VM, but you need to run that file to download the rtlsdr drivers first. The error message seems to be saying that the rtlsdr dll file is missing

Re: DMR - SDR# DSD+ R820T2 problem

Couldn't see from your video, but is the word 'voice' ever displayed in the command window? The channel you're looking at may just be idle, or data only.

Re: All-In-One DIY Antenna for RTL-SDR?

Haven't seen anyone do it with hoops. Not sure how that would affect it. It may work with a mesh.

Re: Remotely Operating and SDR dongle

Look into SDR-Radio and it's server program or maybe rtl_tcp. These let you stream IQ data over a network. Though remember that there is quite a lot of data coming out of the RTL-SDR, so you'll need a good uplink and downlink connection.

Re: All-In-One DIY Antenna for RTL-SDR?

What type of loop antenna are you talking about? As Hinermad said, loop antennas are very narrowband so aren't really good for tuning to a wide range of frequencies. There's really no such thing as an all-in-one antenna. This is mainly a limitation of physics, not of manufacturing or design. That sa...

Re: Is it possible to use two dongles on the same computer?

Yes it's definitely possible, some people are even continuously running 5+ dongles on a PC. I have no idea how your feeds got mixed up though... There might have been a glitch which stopped both dongles from running, and when they reconnected the program used the wrong dongle. When you run each prog...
