Hello,

> i have 76% CPU load 

This is probably causing some trouble. DSP processing needs low latency and to achieve this you have to have some (more) headroom regarding CPU load. 

> Is it possible to decrease the rate for adalmpluto lower than 2.5Ms?

Yes and BTW the lowest sample rate without decimation should be 2.083336 MS/s. You have to engage hardware decimation as explained here: https://github.com/f4exb/sdrangel/blob/master/plugins/samplesource/plutosdrinput/readme.md#9-sample-rate

The minimum sample rate depends on the hardware FIR decimation factor (13) and is the following:

  • no decimation: 25/12 MS/s thus 2083336 S/s (next multiple of 4)
  • decimation by 2: 25/24 MS/s thus 1041668 S/s
  • decimation by 4: 25/48 MS/s thus 520834 S/s

The maximum sample rate is fixed and set to 20 MS/s

Brgds, Edouard.

Hello again,

i've tested with a rtl-sdr stick without any problems.

The high samplingrate seems to be the problem. Is it possible to decrease the rate for adalmpluto lower than 2.5Ms?

Re: install drangel under ubuntu 20.04

Ralf
 

Hello Guys,
thanks for the fast response. At first i will tell you my short story which i had with SDR-Angel.
First i'd try the windows version. This version works fine till the software crashed.
After that the frequency shows 9999999MHz with no chance to change it (Deadlock in the QT gui).
Reinstallation with every time the same problem. Then i get the information the linux version is much more stable.
Then i installed the on ubuntu 16.06  with the next problem: i only get a four number error code.
Then i interpreted a information on the SDRAngel page will work only with Ubuntu 20.04.
So i bring my Linux-System (which i use only as an mysql server not more!) to 20.04.
After installation i got only wrong command error.
I have very less experience installing or compiling on linux systems only for AVR uC and
Windows.
Where is an easy way to get it running.
Greetings
Ralf

Hello,

there is a v5 branch with advanced features for advanced users and for which I do not provide any artifact (only docker images of the server flavor for arm64 in Docker Hub) which means that if you want to have it you need to checkout this branch and compile the source. However SDRplay support outside the original RSP1 is not known to me and must be a hack of some sort.

The master branch which is the default follows the v4 series with patches and occasional selected new features aiming at stability for the average user.

Brgds, Edouard.

No success starting SDR Angel

Ralf
 

Hello,
i am trying to get SDR-Angel running but i get the followiong problems:
When i add my pluto as sink or source the frequency goes to 9,999,999
MHz and the frequency entry crashes.
No chance to modify the frequency. When i change 10 to 20 times to file
input and back to pluto i get the possiblity to change
the frequency but there is no output. The TXRSSI indicator shows -xxx dB.
I am using version 4.14.17 under Windows 10.
Where can i get a more stable (older) version of this program?
Thanks in advance

Ralf

serialdv issue compiling on Windows #windows

jcsansao@...
 

Dear all,

I'm new on the group and I'm trying to compile SDRAngel on Windows using QT Creator 4.12.4 Based on Qt 5.14.2 (MSVC 2017, 32 bit), which, after having all external libraries in place, it finally configures right, but during build, it misses serialDV.lib as dependam of sdrbase.dll.

20:29:43: Starting: "C:\Qt\Tools\CMake_32\bin\cmake.exe" --build . --target all
ninja: error: 'lib/serialdv.lib', needed by 'bin/sdrbase.dll', missing and no known rule to make it
20:29:44: The process "C:\Qt\Tools\CMake_32\bin\cmake.exe" exited with code 1.
Error while building/deploying project sdrangel (kit: Desktop Qt 5.15.0 MSVC2015 64bit)

When executing step "CMake Build"

I searched for a solution, without results. In addition, I see that the binary SDRAngel has the right dependencies.

Re: SDRAngel troubles with audio input and file input

Edouard Griffiths
 

Hello Steve,

well I do not quite understand what you are trying to achieve. Maybe you should describe it step by step. But anyway the file recording feature is going to be reworked completely making a File Recorder channel plugin in its own right instead of being a feature of each device plugin. It makes more sense will add functionality like elapsed recording time and file size, the ability to record a part of the baseband and combine several of them in the same baseband and put the code in a single place. This will also make the combination Local Sink -> Local input with file recording obsolete. Issue https://github.com/f4exb/sdrangel/issues/543 refers.Please be patient...

Brgds,
Edouard.
