Receiver Hardware Error

Post by jfjones » Mon Jun 14, 2021 1:20 pm

I have been using my RTL-SDR V3 for a couple of years now. Mostly on DSD+ but also SDR# and few other app's. Recently I am getting a "receiver hardware error detected" when using the dongle on DSD+ and listening to P25 Phase-1. The dongle is quite warm but not overly hot. By unplugging the USB cable and plugging it back in the error clears and the receiver starts working again. Sometimes for a long time and others when it just keeps generating the error again.

Was wondering if anyone else has seen this error before and a possible fix. Is this an indication that the dongle is starting to die.

Thanks....
