Interface Defination For the RTL-SDR Stick

Post by petec » Thu Jan 17, 2019 4:14 am

Is there a definition for the interface to the device? Something that tells me how to set all the parameters?

I am considering an application that would run very standalone and I don't want to include SDR# or GNURadio or any other application. I would predetermine all the settings (undoubtedly using one or more of the applications) and just load them at run time.

Thanks In Advance.

From memory (when I tried to look for such information) they are a real mess.
You could use rtl-tcp and talk to it as a '.local' networked device. Also look at some of the source code for other rtl-xxx programs and see how they do it.
