Re: Connecting Error - Failed to enumerate available contexts

OK, I'm reaching here a bit. By "very first start / boot of SDR console" do you mean first start after a reboot or first start after an install or first start each time you load SDR Console? I probably made a bad assumption here. When defining radios I (perhaps rashly) presume the two Plutos have so...

Re: 3.0.27 recording scheduler not working?

See, pictures are magic. They pull answers out of the crowds using SDRC and this thing loosely called a forum.

Re: Rx Amplitude do not show the real values

A general rule to follow that will not get you in trouble with SDRs, or for that matter ANY radio, is that it is uncalibrated until you apply a calibration cluebat to the poor thing. Your setup is guaranteed to NOT be calibrated to any any material degree. You will have to insert some accurate signa...

Re: New Pluto SDR receiving poorly

Did you ever adjust the RF gain on the Pluto? If yes is the antenna connected to the Rx antenna port?

Re: Connecting Error - Failed to enumerate available contexts

Attach a charger to the second Pluto port. The Pluto is crying for more power. And USB 2.0 power delivery is very weak. Did you ever ask yourself why the designers put that second port there for more power?

Re: 3.0.27 recording scheduler not working?

A full size screen shot showing the problem is required. You are probably missing data that is required or have an invalid entry.

Re: Connecting Error - Failed to enumerate available contexts

"This device did not start properly, possibly due to insufficient USB power. Reset (reconnect) the device and try again." I suspect its "possibly" is more like assuredly. 3.0.27 still likes Pluto. Did you lose your auxiliary power input connection? Is your USB hub overloaded? Is Pluto showing its di...

Re: Server Logs

The rtlsdr dongle on AGC is next to useless as it's "AGC" is not tuned for SWL conditions and leads to easy overloading. It does not have a manual "ATT" setting. It has gain settings from a useless 0 (or even below with some adjustment curves) to over 40 dB. The optimum setting is typically about 20...
