Please repost the screen shot such that it is sent full size. The clues it can offer are obscured by the tiny size as included in your message. However, my understanding is that the recorded levels leave off some data needed to precisely recreate the recording conditions. You may need to readdress the color shading via the View menu.

Hi,
If I make a recording from satellite band, Airspy , 5 MHz bandwidth and I open the recording after that the navigator only shows a bright yellow page where the contrast / colour bar in the consolem menu has no influence at the contrast of the navigator bitmap.

If I open previous recordings the navigator shows the signals nicely.

the two latest recordings where this happend where recorded as 32 bits weak signal.  I am now recording in 16 bit mode to test. 

Screenshot : 

My 16 bit recording show signals in the waterfall and the contrast can be adjusted again. 

I guess this is an unexpected future :-)

Hi Kriss,

Thanks.

And a most Happy Easter for you.

Will spend the day trying to understand the zillion
options in my new toy, an Icom R8600.
Wow !

Doubt that I will ever be able to use it without having the
manual open right besides me.

Yep, reduction in crypto mining, plus the biggest hike to prices has been through simple lack of supply. Once supply is back up, competition cuts in and price will undoubtedly drop. We've been here before with memory chips!

Thank you David for sharing.
I was not aware of this option. I have not been using my RTL dongles for some time and had not followed the development of the functions for them.
It was very easy once you found it and was aware of it.

It looks like over here the prices is down to mid $200 range. Word is that prices are coming down. Some of the mining demand is being relieved.

I know Simon does..but then he has too.

Re prices. Will they come down?  Not if people are buying at todays price..why would they drop prices if they  can sell at xyz£? (China and all the distributors etc)
Plus the world is currently a very unstable place..this also inflates prices.( fuel food etc).

Unless we are very careful in East Europe all this might be irrelevant anyway.. happy easter everyone!

I can only go by my experience. I had on board graphics Intel HD3000, which yes, admittedly is a low spec. Running main window and RX Matrix on SDRC, things were very "sticky", and often screens locked up with more than about three active receivers in the matrix and required restart of SDRC. Using built-in video recording in SDRC.... forget it. Ended with error codes of some sort and never achieved a recording.

Installed GTX1650 Super at a cost of about £160 (happy days those long two years ago!). Never had a lock up again on SDRC and video recording using the SDRC video tool was now a breeze with smooth high quality recordings no problem at all. As an aside I could also run my AVID video editor for the first time, again uses two screens.

So from my experience, went from "limping along" to "no problem" on an ageing 12 year old PC for the sake of £160 spend. At current prices of course the value is not so good. Hopefully when thing stabilise once again (when will that be?) price of video cards will fall and it should once again be a good value upgrade.

It would be helpful to know what level of card Simon considers essential and
what level useful. I can't help but think that unless you /need/ the card for
gaming, getting anything more than the minimum isn't really required, and
anything expensive is a waste of money - just for signal processing.

Prove me wrong!

Cheers,
David
