Hello, I am running into an issue trying to decode using DSD+ with a Nooelec R820t dongle. I am using Xp and have a strong signal on a Trbo channel. When using the same computer with a tapped scanner it decodes perfect. I have my output set to virtual audio cable and the dsd input shows virtual audio cable and output my computer sound. The dsd shows its hearing the signal but all I get is ERR and the lvl jumps from 14% to 35% and sometimes 45%. Now when I open the DSD 1.6 with the trbo extension It starts to decode but only gets SLOT 1, I never see SLOT 2 show up and the decode is illegible audio. So if anyone has time to help a newbie out I would appreciate it. I also want to use the dongle to listen to P25.

nermel- I tried using the DSD+ and I get nothing, not even a peep. I also use vb already. I was saying that with dsd+ Im getting nothing. with dsd 1.6 I at least have it trying to decode but only showing slot 1 nothing with slot 2.

Well.... two things come to mind. There might only be traffic on slot 1 and nothing on 2. And perhaps they are using privacy, which would explain the garbled audio.

Nevermind... my bad. I see you said it decodes fine using a tapped scanner.

I too have had issues with Virtual Audio Cable with SDR#, DSD+ etc etc. I've found that VB-Audio cable seems to work better for me (VB-Audio Virtual Cable). Maybe give that a try?

What are the computer specs? I'm thinking running XP it might be an older system.
