Re: Output of HL2 is interrupted while switching TABS in browser

I got serious about pops, crackles, ticks, and things over on the test team list. I'll grab that and add it below this. Warning - it is a LOT of material to absorb. Inevitably math intrudes; but, it's simple "you can't graduate high school if you cannot do this arithmetic" stuff.

{^_^}
===8<---
You are using small buffers to reduce latency, right? That factors into the following analysis.

Data is coming in generally at very high sample rates, call this frequency X samples per second. In the reception process it gets "down converted" and decimated, usually by a factor of 2^N. Eventually you get down to something like 100 ksps to as low as maybe 8 ksps. Regardless it is a rate determined by the front end sample rate and its frequency error. Call this Y in (1 + px). px is usually 0 to */- 0.0003.

The sound card works at sample rate Y, usually 48 ksps plus or minus a bit, py as with px above. In order to mate the date stream with the output data stream requirements you need a resampler.

To put some numbers on this I'll be cheeky and presume a typical high quality RTL dongle working at its optimum sample rate, 2.4 msps and a 48 ksps sound card as found on computer motherboards. The dongle is 1 ppm out. The motherboard is a bad one at 50 ppm out. The SSB signal is decimated and otherwise tweaked by powers of 2 down to 9.375 kHz, a division ratio of 256. I need to resample that up to 48 ksps. The resample ratio is 5.12. And it's all fixed ratios. So we deliver samples at 48000 * ( 1 + px ) to a device that wants them at 48000 * ( 1 + py ). Pushing the error around we essentially have an error of ( 1 + px )/( 1 + py ). In approximate terms this simplifies to ( 1 + px - py ) if we ignore px * py or py^2 terms. So we can approximate and say we are delivering 48 ksps plus an error to a 48 psps device. Suppose the audio buffers are 1500 samples. Every time the output demands audio the system has prepared 1500 * ( 1 + px - py ). This is cumulative. After awhile a buffer can come up short or long by one sample. What do we do about that sample. What do we do about the excess buffers when we've filled our limit of buffers? We could grow the buffer pool - a memory leak in appearance. So that solution is out. Besides if we come up short we don't have a buffer ready for the output when the output needs it. We get a hitch in the audio either way.

I have seen an application work by fidding the resampler ratio by tiny amounts to account for the differences in rates. This is a fairly finicky adjustment. But it's the only artifact free trick I have seen yet.

(Yes, Loren has used that in SoundMan Server, that cute little 1024x1024 ASIO based mixer, delay, equalize, low latency audio tool he sells. It was in his work to allow multiple digital sources and sinks that are not precisely in lock step with each other. It is hard enough to make stable at the 64 sample buffer size he uses that this was put on a back burner to simmer. I think that fire went out.)

{^_^}
===8<---
I suspect you will find that all sound cards will tick, click, pop, whatever it does. There MIGHT be some sound processing system that includes a resampler process that matches incoming data rate to the sound card itself. That effectively means EVERY tool that connects to the sound card must either adapt its rate to the sound card (file playback) or get its audio resampled with an adaptive rate resampler (SDR processes). All you can do is negotiate how often.

There are two models for AV data streams. One is pull, the destination sound card (output) drives the timing by asking for buffer loads as it needs them. The other is "push" where the sound card (input) pushes audio to its consumer as it gets full buffers and it's the rest of the software's job to use it in time for the next buffer load.

The collision happens when you have a push source coupled to a pull destination. If the two are on the same card working with the same clock there is no problem. That is how Loren's SoundMan Server works. Because everything is off one ASIO one sound card or set of sound cards that are all precisely synchronized with each other the inherent push is matched precisely by a corresponding pull.

The differences you see are likely due to relative frequency differences vs buffer sizes. Suppose you are a net 50 ppm different in frequencies at 48 ksps, the most common rate for PC audio in videos and the like. So over 1 second you get either 48000 * ( 1.0005) or 48000 / ( 1.0005 ) samples, The net error is 48000 * 0.0005 or 24 samples. If you are running on 64 sample buffers, the smallest ASIO allows, that means you tick about once every 2.7 seconds. For a buffer size of 1500 (fairly common) it ticks about once a minute. For reference 64 samples is about 1.333 ms and 1500 samples is about 31 ms. Very often multiple buffers are used to give very long effective buffering. For 50 ppm error divide the total use buffer time by 24 and you get you time between ticks.

If that IS your problem the solution MAY be very long latency in your audio due to a very large pool of buffers. Or it may involve somebody actually making variable timing on the resampling work. (I an some time away from experimenting with this aspect of SDRs. I plan to doctor the use of the CuteSDR resampler to include an estimator for the sample rate error, which is very ugly to do with the small buffers I want to use. I just ripped up a lot of what I had done so it could be more flexible. I have to glue it all back together to make it work. Meanwhile we're running ethernet wire all over the place.... I've grown sick of the vagaries and lack of privacy given by wireless networking.)

Just an update:
I'm running a QuadCore 8300 PC with 8G memory, not the newest but more then enought to do the work.
On average the system is @ 40% of CPU resources when decoding MSK in normal mode.
I just noticed that this also happens when putting the FOCUS from  to Chrome (without switching between tabs in Chrome).
I tried other applications as well but so far I only see this happening when using a browser.

hello

what i have done.

cheap wireless mouse..7 euro £6.

Used x mouse program to reassign buttons/ scroll to sdrc keyboard shortcuts.

ie..right click= tx
middle button= tune
scroll up = vfo up
scroll down= vfo down
middle button + scroll  up= vfo up quick
middle button + scroll down = vfo down quick

BUT..i have removed scroll from mouse and also middle button and used encoder with switch..
i have mounted encoder vertically with big vfo knob and mounted to mouse..this gives me proper vfo knob..

i will post a picture when not on phone..( as i can not post pics from phone.)

cost £10 ..12 euro??..

Edit of Audio Files

George Stein - NJ3H
 

Greetings,

I saw a youtube video yesterday that Simon had made regarding ALE reception using SDRC vers 2.  It seems to me he recorded a 2 MHz bandwidth.  If I heard correctly, I thought he said that he edited the file to just limit the file to a narrow portion (where the ALE signals were).  Perhaps he just zoomed in.

There is software for the Perseus that allows trimming a Perseus file by time.  I have often thought of trimming a file by frequency would be a real nice thing to have.  However, I cannot imagine how such a thing would be possible.

Simon, did you actually trim the file for a specific frequency range?

Is there a trim file capability for TIME in the SDRC software?  If not, how would one at least accomplish this for a n SDRC audio file?  I would think a standard audio editing program would not work since it would get rid of header info, etc.

Love SDRC more and more each day.

Anyway, everyone have a good day.

George, NJ3H

If I take a screenshot while the spectrum/waterfall is stopped console freezes.  This time I was able to bring up the Task Manager and shut SDR Console down.

Re: Output of HL2 is interrupted while switching TABS in browser

paul newcombe <G6YZC@...>
 

Interesting thread to follow as I have a similar problem with the Anans when using SDRC VAC/VB Cables, WSJT-x/JTDX.

It only happens with SDRC and not with Thetis or PWRSDR.
I cannot hear it at my end OR if I record the audio using the record button in the TX DSP and play it back.
I cannot hear it over my speakers when I TX.
I have tried multiple Anan radios.
I have tried multiple computers.
I think I can see it on the Pure Signal plots in SDRC. This is why I tried a 10e too,


Receiving stations hear it very clearly which is obviously how I first found out about it.
They hear it when I am using any Digi mode via WSJT-x/JTDX via Vac BUT they also hear it 
when I use the TONE or TUNE button on the TX DSP in SDRC.

My intention was to have one of the RXing stations record their end so I can send it as an attachment.

I will follow this thread and make test changes as recommended.
I will use a set up with no internet and just CAT5 connection to the Anan.
If I have no luck I will try to document it better and ask more questions.
Thank You.

Re: antenna splitter ?

jdow
 

Now it sort of makes sense as a connection list. A top item would be antenna to 7600 transceiver input.

It probably should be safe. I don't know what protection the RSP1A has. I'd expect the 7600 to have about 50dB to 60 dB protection in its TR switching. (Hopefully this is specified somewhere.) You can then compare that with the RSP1A input specification limitations. We're speaking of a signal perhaps as large as 1 mW. That should not damage most equipment inputs. That is a about the level most input protection devices kick in, 0.316 V peak. My paranoia kicks in at around 1 V peak. This configuration looks like it will be 1/5th to 1/10th that much voltage.

I can confirm this behaviour on my old, fairly old, win7 machine (core2quad processor) when switching tabs or refreshing sites.

As Simon wrote, modern browsers are resource intensive. Just take a look how much ram they consume nowadays...

Run only necessary tasks when doing TX. Try it with just Console and MSHV open.

Best regards

Hi,

 

Makes sense – browsers can use a LOT of CPU and will do so. Very simply – don’t mess with the computer while sending, or get a computer you can dedicate to radio.

Hi,

I just noticed a weird phenoma which I cannot explain, hopefully someone can help me:

When I'm TXing in a digital mode (MSHV <-> VAC <-> SDR Console) and switch to another TAB in a browser (Chrome / EDGE/ TOR), the EXTTR output of HL2 is shortly (10 - 20 mS) interrupted. It doesn't happen all the time but about 30% of the times I tried.
I never noticed this before since the transverter I use (144/28) doesn't have any relays, this weekend I connected my PA (having coax switches) and noticed the clicking relays.
After connecting a scope I clearly see the short interruptions of about 10 - 20 mS, sometimes 2 within 50 mS.

Has anyone seen this before?
