Hello All,

I just released a plugin written for a forum user here on RTL-SDR.

It's a super simple plugin to change the background color of the spectrum analyzer window, Also has an option to show the current detector type in the spectrum analyzer window as well. There are 4 slider controls. to mix red, green blue and color intensity levels. This covers the entire spectrum of colors available in windows.

You can download it at:

I am getting reports from people that the colorizer plugin draws over top of the band plan when it is on full screen mode and always draws over the frequency manager when you have show on spectrum checked.

I know this. It is because: The band plan draws on the background BEFORE my code when it is on full mode. Since my code is called later, my code overdraws it. Same with the frequency manager. I can not change this behavior in my code.

Solution: Use band plan on top or bottom mode. or don't use my plugin.
Solution: Use frequency manager "show on spectrum" and don't use my plugin
Solution: Use spectrum colorizer on a lower color intensity setting.

This plugin was written custom for one person's use. I uploaded it so others can use it if they so choose.

There is no fix. It is the way SDR# is written.

Sorry everyone,
