So how does one make this happen? Last week my issues was I was running the wrong version of Omni Rig the corect one is 1.20 which is what I am running.
Thanks again but there has to be a solution 

Thjanks again

virtual comport may be a shared port .. one end to sdrc ... other end to omnirig

jdow thanks for the quick reply. My radio is using com 7, Yaesu installs two com ports one for rig control, in my case com 7 and com 8 sends data cw digital ect. So how can I use a virtual cable?

I'd also suggest running RDS Spy in conjunction with the VAC output because that will grab PIs when Console doesn't. Asymmetric filtering is another critical component to RDS decoding if there's QRM to one side of the wanted signal.

One other trick that very occasionally causes a PI to pop up is to quickly switch between preset bandwidths like 150, 175 and 192kHz.

Re: Lost cat control to external radio

With com0com or equivalent you get virtual cables that have two ends. If you try to open COM7 in SDRC and in OmniRig it's not going to work. Find the other end of COM7's virtual cable and have one of the two use it instead of COM7.

Re: Software installation #rtl

jdow
 

SDRC is not designed to support side-by-side installations. A proper such design would not use the same registry and %apdata% folders for storing settings, thus making them truly independent of each other. SDRSharp does this if that is what you want.

With this in mind a settings snapshot feature that archives all settings before the user gets into "experimental" mode might be a good thing.

Re: Remaining VAC Issue

George Stein - NJ3H
 

I found the problem.  The command 'Buffers' has been replace with 'BufferParts'.  Any existing batch files need to be edited with this change.

Audio using SDR Console now sounds good.

Re: Remaining VAC Issue

George Stein - NJ3H
 

Last night, I updated VAC from 4.15 to 4.67.

When I use my batch files (one file per VAC Line) to start Audio Repeater, I receive the error message as shown in an attached picture. This picture shows the error message and and the batch file as used in version 4.15.  Documentation with VAC seems to indicate that nothing has changed from previous versions.

Also attached is the VAC 4.67 Control Panel screen

I do not see a way to correct this.  I really don't want to revert back to the old version.

Thanks for any help.

George

Max I can't seem to find how to attach my photos. When I try to open the external radio it's looking for Omni Rig,that's SDRC contacts to my radio.

Re: Remote encoder

Don Woodward - KD4APP
 

I looked at that one - it says "multimedia" so I wasn't sure.

I found this one and also found out SDRConsole supports mapping keys to the functions - this one has programmable keys.  For example, I could map the "T" key to TX in SDRConsole and then map "T" to a button on this.  Also looks like you can map the arrow keys to the shuttle to control the frequency.

Maybe it does help setting the cables to a fixed 48 k sampling speed?!? (just a shoot in the dark)

Thanks for looking at this issue. Would you be so kind to annotate on the VAC Control Panel picture which field or fields need updating and what a good value would be? 

Have a good Tuesday.

Re: Cached data

Simon Brown
 

Yes,

the maximum cache size is 480MB, I'll increase this to the greater of 480MB and 1/8 installed RAM, so if you have 8GB it'll be 1GB, if you have 16GB it'll be 2GB etc.

Depends on the same rate / bandwidth. There may be a maximum cache size which I can increase.

I'm not getting the result with the data cache that I expected...

If I set the cache to 30s...and record for 30 seconds I should get a file with 60 seconds of data, correct? What I see is only 42 seconds. When I look at the logfile I see: Cached data...12 seconds. Should that not be 30 seconds?

Could someone play with this and report back...

Hi Simon, Larry.

I can confirm that when I attempt to set a recording cache when setting up a recording preset under the data recording options and tick the box for the "cache" drop down, whatever value I select, no data is cached. When I replay the IQ file, the start time remains the same as when I hit the preset record button and I've checked the audio on the recordings, and it has not pre-fetched audio from before I hit record (in case it had cached data but not updated the time readout to allow for any cached data).
