Re: Arinst SDR Dreamkit V1D

Hi Simon,

 

I have multiple SDR RX and do not plan to buy such a device.

 

The frequency range is nice but the bandwidth of 5MHz is too low for many applications in the GHz range such as weather satellite reception, DATV etc

 

I am rather look for a solution of a SDR-TRX with a wide frequency range and high bandwidth which also provides a network interface in addition to USB3.

 

Kind regards

there are lots of settings in sdr console that can push up (or lower down) cpu load in a very wide range (depending on cpu used)

on slower machines lower resolution and waterfall speed ... switch priority up (so if windows does d´something in background the soft still has enough power left)

there is also a "low power" setting in console (ask simon what that mode does he may explain it better as i can)

i do not use 8 receivers at once so it workes also on very low end pcs ... 8 receivers at once and a wideband sdr (maybe a direct sample?!?) and it is easy to overload a lower end pc :-)

8. the RX1 bar does not always appear when I click

9. the problems begin to CLICK to the left or right of the WF, in the various areas of the wf,  by clicking in different wf area, it changes from 144 to 446 and as you can see the RX1 bar does not appear where I click.

IT WORKS PERFECTLY if:

Re: DRM in SDRC?

Simon Brown
 

Hi,

 

It’s the audio codec used by DRM / DAB/DAB+. Doesn’t matter whether you use a codec from github or the codec owner you must still pay a licence for every unit shipped as you are using the codec API which is the licenced property. I think the same is true when you ship hardware with a HDMI connector.

That's unfortunate. I'm guessing that's like your UK TV licensing situation. I've heard stories about the "TV Police" going around the neighborhoods looking for unlicensed TV's. I guess on your end, you could implement DRM/DAB in SDRC, but you'd probably have to show a licensing fee is paid by the end user, which is something that you probably don't want to get into and administer. However, you could still offer your FREE version of SDRC (with the ubiquitous donation keep your pup fed), and a PAID version that has that DRM/DAB function enabled, again, mostly for your UK/EU folks.

On 9/7/2021 3:32 PM, Simon Brown wrote:

Hi,

 

For a software provider the problem with DRM is  codec licencing, the entity providing the software is responsible for the licence fee, not the end user. An example: ELAD ship a DRM solution and pay a licence for each unit. Same problem with DAB, if you ship or promote a DAB solution you are responsible for the licence.

Hi Simon,

I came across a post on The SWLing Post (https://swling.com/blog/2021/09/short-recording-of-bbc-world-service-in-drm/) that the author shows using another SDR reciever to listen to BBC DRM. The SDR image shows the use of a "Dream 2.2.1" DRM plug-in. This can be found on SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/drm/).

DRM isn't used in the US, but it is in Europe. I know you've danced around this for a long time. I also don't know if this is much use to you in SDRC, but I thought I'd pass this along. The reviews are mixed to "it works" to "it doesn't work". These files are a little dated from 2019.

Cheers,
Bill

That's unfortunate. I'm guessing that's like your UK TV licensing situation. I've heard stories about the "TV Police" going around the neighborhoods looking for unlicensed TV's. I guess on your end, you could implement DRM/DAB in SDRC, but you'd probably have to show a licensing fee is paid by the end user, which is something that you probably don't want to get into and administer. However, you could still offer your FREE version of SDRC (with the ubiquitous donation keep your pup fed), and a PAID version that has that DRM/DAB function enabled, again, mostly for your UK/EU folks.

Hi,

 

For a software provider the problem with DRM is  codec licencing, the entity providing the software is responsible for the licence fee, not the end user. An example: ELAD ship a DRM solution and pay a licence for each unit. Same problem with DAB, if you ship or promote a DAB solution you are responsible for the licence.

Hi Simon,

I came across a post on The SWLing Post (https://swling.com/blog/2021/09/short-recording-of-bbc-world-service-in-drm/) that the author shows using another SDR reciever to listen to BBC DRM. The SDR image shows the use of a "Dream 2.2.1" DRM plug-in. This can be found on SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/drm/).

DRM isn't used in the US, but it is in Europe. I know you've danced around this for a long time. I also don't know if this is much use to you in SDRC, but I thought I'd pass this along. The reviews are mixed to "it works" to "it doesn't work". These files are a little dated from 2019.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: SDR Console to Pluto, no modulation sent from one PC, another is fine.

It definitely is
 No mic= no output
Simon uses the sampling clock as a master clock to send the data to the sdr
So with no device.. No clock.. NO power

Hello Simon

Tuesday, September 7, 2021

I can confirm unplugging the USB headset after I am able to successfully modulate and see modulation in the spectrum monitor (which if I am 100% honest I didn’t know was even there...) results in TUNE and TONE buttons no longer modulating. Plugging the headset back in fails to get them working again, but restarting SDR Console with the headset still plugged in gets them going again. Expected behavior and hopefully my "fix"?  Thanks again.
