Hello,

Using SDRsharp and SDR++ its possible use multiple RTLSDR and automatic numbering (0) (1) (2) (3)

How SDRC solving the problem to use multiple RTLSDR together in radio definitions like using T820 + E4000 tuners
Is there a trick for it to use? (not edit the eeprom).

thank you

Seems not. You need to give each RTLSDR a unique serial in EEPROM (done within SDR Console using provided built-in tool), then name a separate definition to distinguish each one. That seems a much better option to me than random allocation! It is all explained here:

Out of interest, why do you wish to avoid editing the EEPROM?

Note that the serial number can be any ASCII alpha-numeric (for safety only) string of characters terminated by a null (zero value character) that is less than about 80 characters long. Although I'd advise against that kind of essay. You can name one "Discone" and another "900 MHz vertical". Or you can name them with their calibration setting. Or you can do both.
