RTL-SDR tuning gets out of sync


Unread post by tomjschwanke »

Ok, while writing this post I remembered I should try a different USB port, obviously it fixed the problem after I had written this post. So I decided to upload it anyways as a reminder to try a different port.

Hi there,
I'm having the issue that SDR-Console gets out of sync with the RTL-SDR stick. I am tuned to the correct frequency right after starting, but whenever I try to change it, it usually changes the displayed frequency, but the actual tuned frequency didn't change. I have 3 screenshots and a video.
I start the radio tuned to 91.3 MHz (a local station)
Then I tune to 491.3 MHz (which worked)
Then I try to tune back to 91.3 MHz (which did not work, same waterfall as 491.3)
Here's a video:
