I use SDR Console on a laptop with Win10. I often put it outside on the garden and I connect to it through RealVNC. When I close the laptop, connect to it using VNC and run SDR Console, it looks like this - no FFT, waterfall, some buttons...:


If the laptop is opened, everything is fine. Could you help me?
I also tried TeamViewer - it's the same.

I tested it also on my older notebook (Win7) with same versions of VNC and SDR Console - it works without any problems.

Hi,

Your best bet is to register on the forum https://forum.sdr-radio.com:4499/

Bricked my Ettus X310

Erik. M0MWF
 

Trying to get the f/w to match the code build, so that I may finally run the x310 with SDR-Console, my x310 bricked.

Managed to flash the FPGA with Vivado (under Linux), and write my previous image just to get it back up and running again.

So to avoid a repeat, could anybody who has run the X310 with SDR console please share their images (XG & HG) that sucessfully worked with SDR-Console please?

I understand I should be getting them from Ettus in the normal way, but having done that, and still found a usrp code incompatibility, I'd like to try a known-working image.

Would be much appreciated, thanks.

Erik.

SDR-Console does not support selecting Radio B, and / or its ports. But as allued to by others, Windows GNU Radio, and some radio clients (in Linux) - do.

Please buy the case for your B210 - I must have ESD-zapped mine, and am still quite upset by it.

Also, if you buy new from Ettus / NI, you'll get a warranty - not so with the Chinesium clones of this open-source product.

Ettus / NI's warranty picks-up, repairs, and returns like a Dell laptop.

If you put the TXCO on it, you'll have to modify the case, and the crystal housing will poke out the top.

Make / buy an FM-bandstop filter. Avoid the NooElec / Distill FM trap, as its useless >106MHz, which for me has Capital FM received  e v e r y w h e r e.

Enjoy - I did.

I guess whatever you do to the bits doesn't affect analog NFM demodulation.

Re: Ettus B200/B210

Hi Francesco,

-Ability to monitor two swaths of band at a time. 
-Hook up an upconverter to one of the inputs permanently for HF coverage while usinng the second for whatever

I'm currently using a b210 in openwebrx and although it doesn't support both inputs I have another device inline to swtich an upconverter in and out and another profile that corrects for the frequency offset. GQRX and other linux based software seems to work fine. I only briefly used the B210 in SDR Console. Note that you'll need a pretty beefy computer at higher bandwidths (32msps) especially if you're using both inputs.

Good Luck
-Justin

Hi Bob

As with CW Skimmer, you need to designate one VAC for audio out (or to speakers) and a separate VAC just for the CWS output to avoid issues with audio contaminating the IQ, but seems Simon is saying the IQ is a non-standard output so guess it was not a great suggestion on my part.

Hello Slawek and Max (N5NHJ)

Excuse me if this is an incorrect suggestion, but if you need data generated from IQ out via VAC to input to MAP65 why can you not use the IQ output already provided within SDRC for CW Skimmer?
Just for fun I tried using the CW Skimmer option as a raw I-Q output to feed HDSDR on a 192k VAC. It seems to work, but the signal has to be centered in the spectrum display (click the >|< button). Also make sure the RX output is muted, as you'll only want the output from CW Skimmer.

Ettus B200/B210

Francesco Di Giovanni
 

Hi all,
I am tented to buy an Ettus Research B200/B210 receiver.
The difference between B200 and B210 is that the B210 has 2 RXs and 2 TXs
Considered that the B210 costs a lot more than the B200, what are the practical benefits to have 2 RTXs?.
I am interested mainly in listening.

Well I'm listening to NBFM signals on HDSDR via the HiFI VAC on my system being fed by the CW Skimmer option in SDRC. So as I say it does seem to work. It's just that the RX frequency is not determined by a VRX, but rather by the center tuning.
