Re: No sound with the Video Recorder

Max
 

Hi Patrick

Reason I mentioned this was because I had a specific issue, exactly the same as yours, that was affected by changing the "default" playback device in Windows Audio Devices, nothig to do with SDRC settings. More specifically, I had exactly your issue if my default audio device was set to anything other than the soundcard analogue audio outs (analogue speaker socket) on audio devices. I also had a Realtek HD soundcard like yours. I don't know if your system allows setting default to the analogue jack output on the card but it may be worth a try just in case this is a hardware specific issue.

Having said all that Simon did fix the issue, or at least what ever he did fixed my issue, and now it records audio regardless of the Windows setting and this amendment is in 3.0.22 which is why I said maybe it is not, but I still think it is worth trying it if you did not just in case you discovered another issue specific to the hardware on your machine. On my Realtek card, there are several outputs in Audio Devices labelled "Realtek HD Audio" but some are digital outputs. I had the problem if default was any of the digi outputs, and then the video recording was silent.

Re: No sound with the Video Recorder

Hi Max,

Many thanks for the advice and tip.
As I use a virtual cable (VB Cable) I already checked every possibility, ticking / unticking, selecting different inputs / outputs combinations, no way ...Maybe I missed the only one that works !
In Console itself, I also tried different "playback device" (default, Realtek High-Definition Audio, etc), no effect.

As mentionned earlier, no problem at all with an I/Q recording or a simple "audio recording". The audio is only missing when running the new video recorder feature.

One thing : I'm using 16 bits, 192 Hz (for RDSspy decoding, using a MPX plugin with another software).
Could this be a problem ? I don't think so because other kinds of recording work, but ....

Best regards,
Pat


Re: 2 x SDRconsole programs running on same pc #sdrconsolev3

Given enough computer power in the right places you could run 5 copies with different identities so that their settings are distinct. You would, of course, need five front ends and enough input output bandwidth to service them all.

Ctrl key interferes with keyboard shortcuts

Dale Elshoff WB8CJW <dale.elshoff@...>
 

I have avoided using the Ctrl key or combinations when making keyboard shortcuts because the Frequency entry box pops up and interferes.  A single-press of the Ctrl key will activate the frequency pop-up box if held about 1-second or more - possibly this is unique to my system but limits the number of shortcuts that can be produced.
  • Maybe a timer is needed to cancel the pop-up if a second, additional press of the Ctrl key doesn't occur within a couple seconds.
I recently learned about the keyboard shortcuts that someone mentioned on the group mailer here.  It makes it easy to change antenna selection and gain values now to my RSPdx.  Thank you Simon.

I don't have ANY menus or settings that look anything at all like that. Wonder if you and I are using different products? I'm using HDSDR (HDSDRplay) v2.76 for my Panadapter software. It doesn't have any menus like that. I'm using Omnirig with HDSDR for rig control. No menus like that. I'm using ExtIO_SDRply_RSP1A for the dll with HDSDR.

Re: my SDRPlay RSP1a is doing something weird on 6 meters

Right where I said it was in the usually understood short form.

Let's break it down:
"Select radio->Definitions" and the "Invert Spectrum"

Go to the "Select radio" icon in the title bar or to the "Select Radio" icon in the "Home" ribbon bar. Click on it.

That brings up a dialog. On that dialog select "Definitions".

That brings up another dialog. Select the definition you want to alter alter.

Then clock "Invert spectrum" lower left and click on it ONCE. That should invert it's state and cause the spectrum to invert. That will, alas, also affect your use above if you often change from above to below 50 MHz. So you will have to get used to doing this fairly often.

Re: No sound with the Video Recorder

Max
 

Hi Patrick

I only mention this because I had same issue couple of versions ago (not now by the way as Simon solved it) but just for interest you might try this:

Win + R (to get to Windows "Run" dialogue). Enter mmsys.cpl (to get to Windows Audio Devices).

Experiment with setting different audio devices to be the "default". If main speakers are not set to be default then set them to be.

Before and after this, also experiment by setting SDRC audio output drop-down to "default", especially after setting speakers to "default" in "Audio Devices", making test recordings each time.

I know this sounds very obvious, but don't forget when you playback the recorded file to be aware of what you set to be the "Default" playback device in Windows, as it is easy to think that the recording is mute when it is not. I've done this a few times myself..... You can check visually if you use VLC Player for the playback by setting (on the "Audio" drop-down menu) the Visualisation to be VU Meter..... 

I don't think this is the issue but worth a try at least.

Remote Server Connection Time - Does Not Stop After Disconnect

Dennis Matzen
 

Not a big problem just an annoyance. If I connect to a remote server all is fine. But after I disconnect the connection time continues to run. I have confirmed, via netstat, that the connection did drop yet the timer continues to run as if I am still connected. And if I make a new connection the timer resets to zero and works fine. And it is intermittent. I have attached video to demonstrate.

Re: Using SDRC with SDR via OmniRig HELP!!

Tom Crosbie G6PZZ
 

Hi Simon,

Thanks for getting in touch so promptly.

Details of the Sentinel 4 can be found here: http://www.crosscountrywireless.net/sentinel_4.htm

I should have included this with my original request for help. It might have prompted someone else work out a solution.

I have already been in touch with Chris, the manufacturer to no avail. Another challenge for this group maybe?

Thanks for listening folks

Thanks, Sigi,

That’s a good start but I can’t get up to my shack until tomorrow. In the meantime, I can still use my RSPdx. No matter what I have done before, I cannot see “select USB soundcard” in radio definitions. I’m still on V3.019. should I upgrade first? Nor can I see anywhere to select an external radio. I’m connecting to my shack computer via rdp so the soundcard connections are a bit iffy, so I’m going to leave it for now.

 

One other point I should make is that with reduced mobility, it is important to me that both receivers are permanently connected although I will likely only use one at a time.

 

#Simon, I appreciate the effort that goes into SDRC and I the constant evolution of the software in functionality and performance. I can see that you also really need to have the hardware as you develop. I would be very happy to lend you my Sentinel if you would want to consider programming an elegant solution into SDRC. I can’t be the only one with this radio!

Let me know if you want to take up this offer. Time is not of the essence and I can see you have much to do.

Kindest regards

with sdr console that should be nearly the same thing ...

you select the usb soundcard from your sdr as the input sc in radio definitions ...

and you select "external radio" and connect your sdr to console with "cat" (same as with hdsdr ... only the setup screens look different)

the iq out of your sdr (the 3.5mm jack) can be used to feed the "raw iq" signal to a normal soundcard (test it with your onboard card and line in) ... that then shows you the complete bw of the sdr (depending on sampling speed of the soundcard!!!)

you wrote you do not know the iq thingy???

in each mixing process you have two mixing products ... one above and one below the mixing local ... right?!?

with "i/q" mixing you can have only ONE mixing product so to speak (the mirrored signal is surpressed)

say you sample the incoming signal with a stereo soundcard and you set the local to 7.100 mhz ...

with a "normal" mixer a signal at 7102 ... would also be seen on 7098 (mirror) ... with the iq mixing you only see the original signal at 7102

(yes joanne that is not 100% correct ... but easiest to explain that way for a newbie ... )

....

http://whiteboard.ping.se/SDR/IQ

here the i/q thingy is very well explained .... but in the net you will find LOTS of descriptions how that iq mixing works

a bit tricky to understand ... but if you got the point (the "ahaaa effect") ... you understand how all these sdr things work ... why some sdr need an iq correction (phase and gain compensation) ... how and why some sdr show a mirror ... why there is an "i/q invert" function in sdr software .. etc etc

....

i do not know your sentinel 4 ... but i guess it is

an iq mixer with setable local osc (speaking ts2000 to grab needed frequency over cat on one usb port)

plus a usb soundcard (to bring the i/q signal inside the pc for i/q processing) ... on second usb cable

and the 3.5mm jack is just connected in parallel between those two parts (the i/q ixer and the usb soundcard)

.... (the mchf does tha same thingy over a single usb cable ... cat plus i/q data)

if my guessing is right ... then the setup of sdr console should be almost similar as with hdsdr

you need TWO connections .. one is the signal chain (select the usb soundcard as input) and one is the controlling chain (select external radio like you use omnirig in hdsdr setup)

....

i hope that i pushed your nose in the right direction :-)

Hello Everyone,

First of all, I hope I am asking the right question, and in the right way. Let me explain…

I have an SDR that is not listed in the selection list of SDRC.

It is a CCW Sentinel 4, has a built-in soundcard and uses two USB ports, with CAT control.

It works fine with HDSDR using OmniRig (set for TS2000) but I really want to use SDRC to control this receiver.

I cannot find any way to do this. Do any of you gurus out there know how to do this and can offer step by step instructions?

One thing that might help is that the Sentinel has an I/Q output via a 3.5mm jack socket. I don’t really understand the whole I/Q thing, pros and cons etc. How would I connect this to my computer, and how would I configure SDRC to recognise this?

I would be very grateful for any help anyone can offer. I’m tearing my hair out and there’s not much of it left!

Waterfall Freezing

Steve KH6CT
 

Waterfall freezes after a period of 5 hours or so when running but not being used.  Image remains present but no longer updating or showing new traces.  Markers showing spots, however will update.  With cursor in waterfall area, mouse wheel and a left click will cause a QSY.  This action also causes radio to track.  Tuning the radio or Win4Yaesu will cause Console to QSY.  Changing bands using favorites will also QSY but waterfall goes black.  Outside of the either frozen or black waterfall, things seem to function as normal.  Restart of Console seems to be the only fix.  Just using Console as a panadapter only.  Rig is a FTdx-3000 --> Win4Yaesu --> Console V3.  Computer is Dell, i7, 16 Gb RAM.  Screenshot attached.
Anyone have any suggestions for a fix... ??

Thanks, Steve KH6CT
