Getting SDR running
Posted: Sat May 24, 2014 2:01 am
I have just started to explore SDR and trying to build a scanner as described in http://www.instructables.com/.../How-to ... lice-Radio. I purchased a NooElec RS20T SDR & DVB-T USB stick. The first time I tried this I followed that instructions that instructed me to replace one of the DLL. Since that did not work I deleted everything and follow the instructions that was given in your quick start. loaded the SDRSharp software from SDRSharp.com. The instructions indicated that I should be able to pick up WFM signals. Needles to say nothing but static. I read some where that the blue light on the stick should be on indicating that it is receiving power. Mine is not. I am running Window 7 base system. I did remove all the drivers before reinstalling and did get the message build in interface 0 when I plugged in the usb stick. I did notice that there is a usb_driver subdirectory on my primary drive. In it are USB_receiver_interface(0) files and WINUSB_Generic_devices. Should I have deleted these files prior to reinstalling. Look forward to getting this working. Thanks in advances for any help.
