Will not work

Post by Bumloudson » Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:04 pm

I have the RTL 2832U dongle which I have been using with SDR sharp .One day it worked fine,no problem apart from it seems a bit deaf.
Next day, I switch on and it is not working ? The software fires up ok and works when i click PLAY but all I get is white noise and the computer is seeing the dongle ok but ,there are no signals at all ? Nothing! Nowhere ,on any frequency in any mode .I have the filters correctly set and bandwidths correct,Modes correct.
So far I have removed and reinstalled the software
Made sure Zadig is correct
Made sure the computer is seeing the dongle ( actually I have two dongles and get the same result with both)
I use Windows 7 which is all up to date

Any ideas anyone please?

Make sure SDR# is set to RTLSDR/USB and not anything else. In the Configure button menu make sure you sample rate is set to about 2Msps, Quadrature Mode and make sure you've increased the RF gain. Post a screenshot of your settings if your stuck.
