keenerd rtl-sdr error: disabling direct sampling returns error code

Post by bobasaurus » Sat Dec 30, 2017 4:31 am

I'm trying out keenerd's fork of the rtl-sdr library, calling functions from the dll in code. Everything works fine until I try this:

rtlsdr_set_direct_sampling(rtlDev, 0);

this returns a -1 error code every time, indicating that it failed somehow. Every other setup command returns success codes and the SDR itself operates fine if I just comment out this line.

Using the original osmocom rtl-sdr library, this function returns successfully without issue.

Any idea what would cause this? I'm running Windows 8.1 x64 with keenerd librtlsdr version rtl-sdr-mingw32-v0.5.3.r69.g0d825fe .
