Rtl-SDR dongle can not access

Post by dlbunk » Sat Jun 12, 2021 6:46 pm

First let me ask if the same dongle can be used on the same PC and access either Airspy or SDRUNO? I had installed Airspy and had everything working. I later was able to install SDRUNO and had that working. I opened Airspy once again after closing SDRUNO and received error message: Cannot access RTL device.

Yes you can install all those programs on the same PC. Maybe SDRuno didn't shut down properly and release the RTL-SDR? What happens when you unplug and replug it?
