Re: SDRplay2

Paul and others,

Although I find V2 and V3 very impressive pieces of software, I find that they aren't modeled after a full featured transceiver/receiver.
I find that the RSP2 integration is quite buggy for the time being. HDSDR is quite friendly.
Just being able to access the EXTIO "front end" to directly control RSP2 settings is a joy.
And "spinning the dial" like any piece of desktop amateur radio is capable of only requires a short learning curve with SDRPlay sponsored software.
The hinted laptop computer support (or lack of) and need for an external VFO, mouse, etc. has hindered my use of V2,3.
I like to use my laptop for mobile use, so keeping things compact is of importance.
Scan and store in banks would be nice, for HF and VHF.
I believe from reviews that the RSP2 radios are selling like hotcakes and many owners like me are looking for alternate SDR interfaces to use.
Not exactly a Ferarri that has to go to the shop every week, but something that we can take out and drive and know we will make it back home.
..not positive what a 2CV is but if it involves Lucas electrics, i'll break out in shivers. guess Google is my friend!
My donation would be based on making things I feel as important "must haves" jumping out in front.

Why drive a 2CV �when a Ferrari is available for just a small donation?

You could take the time to�work out the answer and post it back here to help others in the group.

Because I have no answer on my problem I'll stop my test with sdr Console, I come back to HDSDR

When I first bought my SDR it worked with both desk top and laptop
w/V2.3. With V3 I'm having trouble with the laptop. It sees the SDR but
won't display and gives: error connecting to USB:50000. (no such host
The program recognizes the SDR... is there. But won't install.
The main computer is an ASUS and the laptop is a HP.
I'm going to St. Joseph, Mo. to view the eclipse and want to take my SDR
to view the spectrum. Any suggestions?
Also, when trying to load V3 there were so many "pop-ups" saying I need
this and that to add to the computer I had serious issues load V3.
Where is that coming from (Google)?
