Kerberos SDR not connectint to RPi

Post by AGRISNIK » Sat Jan 11, 2020 9:13 pm

Dear all,

I am an absolute beginner in SDR. So, please accept my apologies if the question is too stupid.
I just received a brand new KerberosSDR and following the instruction installed the image on RPi 3.
The software works fine, I use both USB-micro - one to RPi 3 another to 5V power supply (regular 2.5A cell phone charger).
Unfortunately, the status update ratio is -ms, So I assume that the RPi cannot connect to KerberosSDR.
I tried to switch it on and off both via software and hardware, tried the two lates images, but still, the Update rate is "-ms"
So, it does not refresh and I am a little stuck.

Is there any solution to this?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Agrisnik,

Have you tested the individual radios with rtl_test as per the instructions? Also, I would suggest to double and triplecheck your cables - and consider a 3A powersupply.
