Saving workspace layout configuration

minervois56 <minervois56@...>
 

I'm using SDR Console v3.0.22 with great pleasure.
I'd wish to modify from time to time my current workspace layout, but I would like to quickly revert back exactly to the starting point when wished.
Is it possible to save the workspace layout configuration? I've looked at all options/commands, but I couldn't find it.
Thanks for help!

Another option is to include an automatic upload of screenshot in the software then provide the user with a URL to paste into their message. It could expire after n days. That requires effort to implement, and no doubt cost, but are groups.io not already charging for storage space when people upload images? It may just be an offset cost. Just a thought.

I guess I am not alone in only using the only group interface to read and reply. But I am surprised by the numbers that only ever interact by email.
==============================================

Using e-mail means - for me:

- I can keep a local copy of messages

- I can select maximum attachment size zero, so the server stores the images. This makes the downloads much smaller (important if you're paying for your Internet e.g. while at sea).

- I get the "Edited message" e-mails time and time again, tempting me to block people who do this. Get it right /before/ pressing send! I've disabled the editing facility on the groups I run.

- I don't need to keep logging into the many groups to which I belong - just press F5 on the e-mail program.

So swings and roundabouts!

Cheers,
David

Trouble is if you are reading/replying from the group online as opposed to your email program, the most obvious way of adding an image to your post/comment is to use the add images button in the Reply ribbon. This places the image inline and causes issues for those using email only.

Regardless of how the images are added they are all available in full size by visiting the group and going to the Photos section.

I guess I am not alone in only using the only group interface to read and reply. But I am surprised by the numbers that only ever interact by email.

Unsquelched I would prefer to see a green dot, not red. Like the IC-R8600.

To me, red implies transmission, "On air".

Simon, just reading through your instructions at https://www.sdr-radio.com/rtl-dongles and looks like a typo. 
Where you say USB it should read TCP, see attached screenshot. 
BTW that statement doesn't appear to be true. The Bandwidth setting selected in the dropdown overrides that set in the terminal, well it does here anyway see sample rate screenshot. 

Cheers

I just did a search through everywhere I could think of on this forum
and nowhere could I find the actual instructions for correctly adding
a screenshot to a message, except occasionally within a message thread.

Simon constantly has to tell people to "add a screenshot", yet he
leaves out the all important "as an attachment". And since a
screenshot is a picture, guess what most people will do.

Other people also are constantly complaining about people adding
screenshots as pictures.

So, is there no way to fix this by putting up a message/note/banner of
some kind that would remind folks of how it should be done?

Not being a programmer or a forum moderator I probably don't have the
best answer for this ongoing problem, but if possible it seems to me
the best place for this reminder would be to automatically have a
first line inserted whenever you open a reply box that says something
to the effect of "Always include a screenshot, as an attachment".

Imagine how much stress and annoyance Simon could avoid. It boggles the mind.

I am surprised there are still people alive today who have trouble with "how do I attach this to an email?" Those folks scare me when I realize they can vote, drive cars, and do other dangerous day to day things.

There are some that do not include screenshot at all, but there seem to be a large number that don’t know or understand the difference between a photo inline vs. attached as a file. I suspect some email programs don’t make it easy to force it as an attachment vs. inline, so it takes more than just a brief line to explain.

Realtime works. I'd recommend seeing of High works. That SHOULD be enough. SDRC has an option to run at "Above normal". That makes it happen every time. And it that priority is enough to make it work then Bob's your uncle.

Here’s how I fixed it on both of my systems that were stuttering:
1. Start SDRC and ignore the stuttering for now
2. Control-Alt-Delete
3. Select Task Manager
4. Click on the details tab (you may have to change to the comprehensive view).
5. Scroll down to SDR Console.exe
6. Right click on SDR Console.exe
7. Choose Set Priority
8. Select Realtime
9. Verify the change by clicking the button and close the Task Manager.
You should now be able to enjoy stutter free listening.

Hi David,
I thought after making your recommended change that it might have fixed my audio stuttering with SDR-Console under 10 windows.
'Seamed' to have fixed the issue at the times I checked within 48 hours. But then afterwards the Audio stuffer buffer issues returned.
For me the stuttering problem is ALWAYS associated with a large audio buffer figure. Usually any figure higher than 40ms it occurs and intolerable when buffer
gets above 100ms.
I've read where people pipe their SDR-Console audio into VLC via VB Cable & yes that bypasses the audio stutter problem for me with SDR-Console,
but it's a little bother having to do this, especially when the program worked for me under Windows 7.
I never had this issue with my old 2008 era Windows 7 PC with quad core - used until October 2019.
Then on purchase of a friend's old Core i7 3770K (32GB memory) PC with Windows 10 with 'fresh' install of Windows 10 on SSD, I've had this annoying issue.
With the (Win 10 PC) Gigabyte motherboard there is no recent audio driver updates as per Simon's suggestion.
No changes to SDR console's Tools-->Options-->Audio-->Playback-->Buffering makes any 'improvements' to problem as per Simon's suggestions to others in past.
Is suspect it's a Windows 10 issue or some other software issue rather than Simon's program, but I'm at a loss at how to fix....
My PC uses motherboard onboard Audio.
Gigabyte don't provide motherboard support for motherboard issues on cards older than 3 years so I 'bombed out' there.
VIA (audio chipset) support is as good as useless.
They seam to refer uses to Microsoft for such issues. I haven't approached them yet, but SDR-Console is the only audio program that causes this issue.
2. Although maybe an entirely separate issue; I don't get the 'stereo-mix' option with the existing audio drivers (an annoyance when using *Audacity* -
I have to use VB cable to record from internet, as usage of WASAPI not working with Audacity. Also need to alter System sound settings in Control Panel.
I was wondering if purchasing a add-in PCIe audio card might help with these two issues?
Would however like to solve the issues without additional hardware expenditure (if possible?)
I should also mention when I upgraded the parents  PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 - this audio stuttering with SDR-Console problem also newly developed.
Any suggestions on how fix this audio stutter issue of SDR-Console with Windows 10 *would be greatly appreciated*.
Ian

Hi Toprun

See Kriss Kliegle's excellent guide on how to use SDRC with server based radios, because most of it also applies to local radios too. Just when you get to the part near the beginning where he selects "V3 Server" from the definitions, just pick your local radio. Or maybe just follow the whole procedure and see if you can get SDRC going with a server radio first, before you try your own radio?

I think this is a great suggestion.  I like the idea of both the red dot in the location shown and also the different color label (red?} at the bottom of the receiver window.

Thanks!

By the way, how many free pins did you left on Micro? I mean, is there room for more pushbuttons/encoders or do you think you'll need another Arduino for your planned expansions?

Just ordered some components on Amazon :-)

Hi Andrea,

yes of course, but i wouldn't call it a PCB ;)

Just a strip pcb meant for prototyping.

The vertically arranged resistors are for limiting the LED current.

The horizontally arranged resistors are pullup resistors for the VFO A, B and PTT Buttons.

There are 3 KY-040 encoders completely with their own pcb and Button and Encoder Output pins.

I've tried to attach them to pins having interrupts in the arduino to have a better switching sense.


I really would like to extend it to have another bunch of controls on it.

I think a RX=TX (On Off), RX -> TX (Sync) would be cool. I also would like to add a Mode selector.

And the top of my list would be a little display to show the selected value, when selecting something ;)

But it had to be quickly available and it's working flawlessly since nearly a year.
