My dongle doesn't function

Post by Burak » Mon Mar 23, 2020 2:13 pm

I had purchased a nooelec v2 dongle as the rtl-sdr v3 is not in my country. (I use it all with a raspberry pi4)
I used it with dump1090 to track ads-b data.
Then I took another one to use it with rtl_airband / rtl_tcp / airspy sever and the problems started here.
I still haven't figured out if it's a software problem or the new dongle that never worked and now the other one doesn't work anymore.
I get this error with both dongles:
rtlsdr_write_reg failed with -4

Can you try it on different USB ports, or a different Pi?

Then it's possibly a hardware fault. Contact NooElec about a replacement.
