Please does anyone have this version of SDR#? I don't like the latest versions very much. They do not support CTCSS or filter plugins. 1529 is the last build that doesn't need latest .net framework. The latest version I have is 1525.

Thanks.

Hi thanks for your reply.

r1530 changed to visual studio 2017. Sorry I meant this and not .net framework. My bad.


"------------------------------------------------------------------------
r1530 | prog | 2017-03-21 18:44:33 +0100 (Tue, 21 Mar 2017) | 3 lines

Upgraded the solution to Visual Studio 2017;
A few fixes to shut gcc moaning;
Added a cross-compile configuration for Linux.
------------------------------------------------------------------------"


But I get you point. There is nothing substantially changed between r1525 and r1530 that would affect me. Thanks for pointing this out!


Has anyone had any luck using say the CTCSS plugin with the most recent releases, say r1666 ??? I am using the latest version of the plugin (Update 05/19/2017).


Thanks.

Hi, This one:

Updated CTCSS Decoder

Works on SDR# v1.0.0.1666 on Windows 7 SP1 32 bit.

Hope that is the same one and helps you out.

You can use Google Translate on right side of screen.

Edit:
For reference the newer DLL has a MD5 hash of "8a122aa56c04bcb5d1ee6d4fbc08b64d"
The old DLL has a MD5 hash of "97732fe7b61ff68f71cddb103d9ab810"

Thanks Mr. thewraith2008.

I tried that version but it does not go. It crashes r1525 and does not show up. In version r1666, it shows up but does not detect any codes. I have r1525 working 100%.

I am using Windowz 7 64bit. ppm is set to zero as I have Realtek with TXCO fitted.

Other issues with r1666 is the 300Hz HP and 3KHz LP filter (DSP) does not work. I wonder if it is related? I can hear the 218.1Hz tone come thru.

Would you be so kind as to share your 'SDRSharp.exe.Config' and 'Plugins.xml' files for r1666 so I can debug what is going on? May be upload to here? ...

https://anonfile.com/

I was wondering if I have the order of plugins wrong in the file 'Plugins.xml' ?

Or if 64bit Win7 is the issue?

Could it be related to "VS 2017" or ".net Framework" ? I was told to install both 32bit and 64bit versions...


Thanks.

My working version of SDRSharp.CTCSSDecoder.dll (with r1525) is 20,992 bytes and the version you linked is 21,504 bytes.

The author has not placed any version number and the file dates are wrong! This makes it difficult to identify. I wish he used version 1 or 1.1 etc ! (for example) Version 2 etc. Never mind.

If I'm not mistaken, Visual Studio only refers to the IDE used to write and compile with.

Having different .NET versions should not affect programs that don't need them.

In SDR# folder there is a file called "crash.txt" this points to problem. Not that it will help to much as we can't do much about it with out the source code (which was available at one stage.)

The 1666 SDR# I used was a new install just to test this issue with.
My 'SDRSharp.exe.Config' and 'Plugins.xml' are default with the exception of this added line in plugins.xml:
<add key="CTCSSDecoder" value="SDRSharp.CTCSSDecoder.CTCSSDecoderPlugin,SDRSharp.CTCSSDecoder" />
I don't think order matters except for positioning in sidebar of SDR#. In any case I placed it before "Signal Diagnostics"

Not sure about DSP plug-in, If I get a second I'll have a look.

My CTCSS setup detected tone on this setup.

Yes, the bright spark who created these files (.dll,.txt, .zip) have made a conscious decision to make all these files the same date/time with only visible difference been the size. (or MD5 hash)

The DSP plug-in you refer to, is that the same as "Digital Signal Processor" aka DAP or a different plug-in?
"SDRSharp.DAP.dll" - MD5 hash [619936cd6717972d7703bba82dd8d118]

If the same, then if you use the setting from SDR# sidebar "Audio" > "Filter Audio" it has highpass filter as a part of what it does. It sounds better as well.

Again testing has shown on my setup that DAP plug-in is working on SDR# 1666

I just found this one, which is probably the one you use. And it didn't work on 1666.
"SDRSharp.DigitalAudioProcessor.dll" - MD5 [4d6b1ebc9a60dc791f33ec137019a239]

Try the DAP plug-in. It looks the same except it requires manual entering of the low/high cutoffs.

Ok thanks mate! I will look into MD5. I am aware of CRC checks etc. But I need to research.


I dont know if CTCSS plugin uses or depends on any libraries. I can inspect (VS or .net).

Program "ProcessMonitor". It might be handy.


Thanks for the tips. I can DL fresh installation of SDR# with aim of getting CTCSS plugin working. I have tried before unsuccessfully.



Running both r1525 and r1666 is a PITA! r1525 works perfectly.


Thanks thewraith2008.

For the hash generation I use "HashMyFiles". It's portable, so no installing, just run. Does many hashing types.[CRC32,MD5,SHA256 to name some.]
HashMyFiles - link for download near bottom of page

I normally use 1490. Even then I think I swapped "SDRSharp.FrequencyManager.dll" for earlier one. I don't like the newer frequency labeling on the spectrum display. You can't tell what anything is at a glance, you have to highlight all to find something.

If 1525 works for you, then stick with it. Updating for the sake of it isn't always good.

I have multiple installs of SDR# (and versions) that I use for different purposes. Saves re-configuring when I want to do something different.
