Hi Steve,

 

I have the same theme – an old i7, 16Gb RAM and only on board grafics – now 2 monitors but a 3rd in spare 😉  - and a SmallFormFactor – case….

 

The 950 is a quite old Card, i think it would be better to look for a Little younger type – i was told a 1060 was the best buy for the Money – a year ago – so pls correct me if i´m wrong or there is a better one out there….

The NVIDIA card is recommended by Simon as a good choice for SDRConsole.  Question is...  How much RAM should the card have?  My computer already has 16 GB of ram.  Along with SDRConsole, I operate with Win4Yaesu and Log4OM displayed on two 27" monitors.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Andy

Stereo mix is of limited use for routing audio for data programs, reason being it is exactly what is says: A mix of all audio sources, so the audio gets "contaminated" by audio from other sources (internet browser for example), hence the need for a clean source of audio carrying only the audio from the SDR, sometime several individual VACs carrying parallel feeds from different receivers. VAC(s) is/are therefore indispensable for this purpose.

With my 5th generation NUC the Realtek audio driver provides "Stereo Mix" allowing easy connection to follow on decoders, using the Windows Sound applet, without a third party virtual audio cable

I posted this over a year ago, on how to set up SDRC as a server. It's a step by step guide with images:
https://sdr-radio.groups.io/g/main/message/51472

I host 12 SDR's on 5 separate servers, all open to the public. As users of my "Super Stations" will attest, I have some of the most QRM free RXR's on the network.
There are dozens of them listed, but , many, I repeat MANY, are appearing as functional. In reality, they're not... after going through all the effort of building definitions. Bookmark the following to keep tabs on your server:
http://onairv3.sdrspace.com/onair-v3.xml

You will notice MANY with the  symbol. Those are servers probably running in the background without the owners knowledge since the server is a Windows Service. There's a default setting that automatically starts the service, whether or not it's properly functioning. I think many try to get the server up and running and some how fail to get it to work. They eventually give up, but every time the computer is booted up, the Server Service starts up automatically. Its a great thing if you know what your doing, but it floods the master server at Simon's with pings saying, "I'm here for a connection...", when it's really not properly configured. This is the setting is found in the Service tab of the Server Manager:



Once the Windows Service is running, the actual Server Manager doesn't have to be in operation. It's purpose is program the service and set it up. I have it run on all my machines, so when I Teamviewer into it, I can quickly see who is using it, what frequency, etc.

Re: Whats Current

Hi Richard,   this forum is for SDR-Console users and the good news is that the RSP2 and all the current RSP models are supported by the latest version of SDR Colsole V3.   This includes the ability to remotely access it over the internet  - this is an old video guide from SDRplay on doing this - the process is similar  today: https://youtu.be/z2jr_ksIMp8

SDRuno is the software provided by SDRplay and has been optimised for the RSP family of SDR receivers for when SDR and computer are together (or over a LAN using VirtualHere:   https://youtu.be/KDbOFftyEww )

More guides to do with SDRuno can be found by looking in the SDRplay apps and support catalogue: https://www.sdrplay.com/apps-catalogue/

Here's a list of links to other forums for SDRplay users where you can get independent views and help with RSP2 related questions: https://www.sdrplay.com/communitylinks/

Best regards,  Jon

It's a significant challenge to devise an API to support multiple radios. I've tried. You essentially come up with a base-level (or least-common denominator) and then try to add the radio-specific features on top of that. Once you release the API to someone for testing, it's only a manner of time before you receive a message along the lines of "why doesn't the API support this feature?" The fact that SDR-Console supports so many different radios is a significant feat.

I am beyond excited about the prospect of G31DDC support!

Bob, W4RLS

It does not seem to make a difference if everything is set 48000Hz, ATCSMon still can not decode the audio from SDR-Console. I think I will just have to use SDR# in the mean time even though the newer versions crash all the time. And the windows update was on the working system.
Is ATSCMon sensitive to absolute phase? If so, try flipping phase in SDRC by going to Options panel, under Audio > Pseudo Stereo, check Enable, Delay=None, Crossover=None, Phase invert=Left.

maybe a ground loop caused by the external reference??

i would try transforers also on the ext ref to solve that problem

I switched back to an internal TCXO for the HackRF and although not as stable as my lab clock the noise is gone.

I tried several USB/USB filters because I had them and they were ineffective.

Re: Continuing problem with VB-Audio

Just for information VB-Cable or VAC are not needed with the Intel NUC if the Realtek audio driver is installed from the Intel NUC driver download website.

With my 5th generation NUC the Realtek audio driver provides "Stereo Mix" allowing easy connection to follow on decoders, using the Windows Sound applet, without a third party virtual audio cable

I found the same anomaly with my Lenovo laptop, the generic Windows 10 Microsoft audio driver did not provide Stereo Mix. Initially neither did the Conextant audio driver downloaded from Lenovo, but an inspection of the Conextant audio driver configuration file revealed that Stereo Mix was available but was "commented out". Releasing the Stereo Mix statement removed the need for a third party solution.

Unfortunately the generic Windows 10 Microsoft audio driver provides only basic sound without a Stereo Mix facility, always worth looking at the laptop manufacturers website to see if the audio driver is available.

The first thing you'll find when writing your first computer code, is to print "Hello world" on the screen. And, out of 50 students, you'll find 50 different ways to do it. The same applies to situations like using SDRC with VBA.

For me, and what works quite well and is simple to setup, is a combination of the following programs (also shown in the attachment screenshot). This is not the only way to make VBA work, but this is what works for me. FYI, I'm running Win10-64 Pro.

*SDR Console (v3.0.26) WITH an RSP1A > Output set to "VB-Audio Virtual Cable"
*VB-Audio Virtual Cable Control Panel (Verison1.0.3.5)
*VB-Audio Voice Meter (Version 1.0.6.8), mostly to allow hearing sound through speakers
*WSJT-X v2.1.0, mostly to demonstrate that VBA is working

Hope this helps. 73's

I do not have any issue routing SDRC to VBCable A input and use VBCable A output as one of the virtual Banana's input.
Any audio device I'm currently using is routed using VBCacles and Banana, including Flex SmartSDR DAX Outputs and inputs to any digital software like WSJT, MAP65, MTTY.
Sometimes, Banana engine needs to restart, but this is not related to SDRC.

What I can suggest, assuming you didn't do it already, is to play with the VBCable control panel configuration, I've set the internal sample rate the same (48KHz in my case) as the external sampling rate (what you can see on the windows audio panel).
Internal max latency is 1024 smp.
