mouse crashes when sdrsharp is running

Post by RobbPepperwolfe » Sun Sep 08, 2019 12:50 am

i bought 2 rtl sdr dongles for p25 scanning. i got it working, but im experiencing an odd issue. while sdrsharp is running, my mouse will disconnect (i get the chime from windows like when you unplug something) and reconnect randomly.
my mouse is a redragon perdition m901 v1.1 (old version)
im assuming its some conflict with this old gaming mouse.

Might be power related. WHen SDR# starts, the RTL-SDRs will turn on and draw more power. If you're USB port can't handle the power for 2x RTL-SDR and the mouse, then the mouse might drop.

Try other USB ports.
