sdr-play not recognized


4n4jrw@...
 

Hi Group thanks for being there for the large knowledge base.  Recently I got sdrplay and I wanted to run with V2.3
It only "see's " an rtl dongle that sdr play replace,  it does not recognize the properly installed sdr play  
How can it be added to the software
Thanks 73

I have the same problem. Never been able to use my sdrPlay with SDRConsole. It always says nothing found.
It does work with SDR#.

Hi


Did you install SDRPlay's EXTIO plugin into the SDR-Radio directory (the directory that contains SDRConsole.exe)?


Without that installed, SDR-radio has no chance of knowing about the SDRPlay receiver.

Ummm, SDR-Console does not use the EXTIO with the SDRplay RSP. It uses
the Miracs driver instead.

Hi Gary;

I appreciate your reply below but now I’m really confused.
My confusion comes from this sentence in red copied straight from the http://www.nn4f.com/SDR-Console-SDRPlay-RSP_QuickGuideTips.pdf

SDR-Console does NOT use the EXTIO Plugin (HDSDR & Others) so it is not needed at this time, but you can download for later use if you so wish.

SDR Console runs the SDRPlay in native mode. You need to download and run the sdrplay api installer. This is found on the sdrplay site on the Windows platform page.

Oops!  Sorry Mike and Alan.
My face is as red as your text...
 
I guess older age caught up to me (again).  For the last few Extio updates I've been merrily installing it into all the SDR software I installed including SDR-Radio where it isn't even needed.
 
Sorry to cause you unnecessary confusion.

No worries, Gary ...

USE YOUR MULLIGAN... and it will be like it never happened !!

Nothing to worry about, Gary.

You were not the first to throw ExtIO into the fray while it is not needed, and you will not be the last.

In fact, your discovery has likely assisted a great many other potential SDRPlay RSP + SDR-Radio users.

It does work with SDR#.
=========================================

"Work" provided that:

- you don't want to use recent SDR# versions and you don't want to use the frequency manager or other plug-ins.

Sadly, it seems that SDR# has been deliberately crippled in its support for some hardware other than the developer's Airspy hardware. Let's hope that Simon does not go the same way.

Hah "Deliberately". We just don't have the resources to develop stuff for others - for free.

Youssef, that I can accept, but perhaps you might explain to me (and others) what the problem is? Setting the frequency by clicking with the mouse results in the frequency display changing, and in a frequency which is communicated to the radio (including SDRplay). Using the Frequency Manager plug-in results in the frequency display changing, but that change isn't communicated to the radio. Why not?

As a user of both three Airspy boxes and an SDRplay, I feel that I have already contributed something towards the costs of developing SDR# (indeed, were that program more open I might happily be prepared to add the code required free of charge).

Sure, but we can still lament the fact.

Been using sdrplay for several months..  installed as per instructions on sdr play website. Works correctly with latest version of sdr console and windows 10. Even works with sdr# with instructions from sdr play website. Can not find instructions on sdr# website. Maybe Youssef doesn't like sdr play???

So you expect us to document every single hardware that may or may not work with SDR#? Or is it just about naysaying? I don't like nonsense.

I still spend a lot of time improving SDR#/Airspy, so I'm still giving you more value even after your purchase - for free. Also, I'm working on many other hardware/software projects in parallel. So you can imagine the time resources are extremely scarce. You will have to find a very good rationale for me to leave all these exciting projects and do something else. For the time being I see none. And thank you for the proposal.

Why are you talking about SDR# ... here, in this forum?
Don't you have your own discussion forum ?
It is a pity you do not have a NAME and Call sign like the other guys.

Just MY take... Happy Trails -

Interesting take, Mr. No-Name. From MY perspective, we have suffered way more problems with the AirSpy dong, than all else combined! Not that I am complaining... just saying... ;-)

Of course, this is ham radio, which is all about experimentation, and buying stuff still in development, so It is OK if that is your bag ... I am just saying...

I don't accept all that palaver about it being "free" - If you buy an SDR, it ought come with software. The fact it comes with undeveloped beta-ware for no extra cost, hardly makes it "free' - it is is included with the rig for a stated price. Especially, if it is is being developed exclusively for a particular product line.

In contrast, I know a guy who actually does give away free software which is NOT being developed for a particular product line. It actually IS FREE. In fact, the developer works hard to make it compatible with as many devices as he can. When it comes to limitations, he does not say, "Ha - that is deliberate!"

My delete button broke deleting all the posts dealing with the Air Spy and its kin.

--- Sarcasm Button Off ---

My comments are limited expressly to the discussion of SDR # as another application here in this forum -- I have NO OBJECTION to discussing how to make SDR Console work with any rig. It is now painfully clear Simon works hard to make HIS application with with all sorts of hardware, but the developer of SDR# expressly indicates he is not equally interested in producing any software for other brand rigs, which is his prerogative, but I cannot see why he has to brag about it on this forum.

Happy Trails to y'all.

Just one man's take - your mileage may vary.

No one on this forum likes nonsense, Youssef. You were asked a legitimate question and you responded with 'Hah "Deliberately". We just don't have the resources to develop stuff for others - for free.'

If you don't have the resources to develop stuff, why are you in this business?

Your socialist training sticks out like a sore thumb in an open market driven world...

I think you would sell many more sdr radios if you would act like a businessman rather than pouting and insulting others..  

I left your forum to get away from your snide remarks, so why do troll to other forums and act childish?
