Good evening
I'm new to using RTL-SDR and i donate to take fastlane anyway
actually i watch in YouTube how to use DSD+ Fastlane and everything fine
first i run PMP24-CC ( FMP24 -rc -i1 -o20001 -P0.0 -b-12.5 -935 )
after that i run 1R in this point everything good
but when i want decoding channel he take me another channel and i receive from DSD+ ( Lost control channel ) i try many time he take me another channel i change the channel and it same problem , i don't know why can someone solve this one please

yea by the way i run 1 sdr and when i run DSDPlus with PMP24-CC everything good

sorry my English not very will :)

I believe what you're describing is DSDPlus FL tracking a trunked system. The frequency will change because new voice channels are becoming active. If the system you're monitoring is trunked, then that is the reason why the frequency is changing - it is following the active voice channels, which is what it is supposed to do
Also, make sure that in the 1R window, under "Control", select "Combined CC/VC monitoring"
You can also try selecting "hunt for lost control channel" and "follow encrypted voice"
If you are seeing green text in the 1R window, and it says "ENC" then you are listening to an encrypted system, which you wont be able to hear voice on.
It is probably losing the control channel as it switches frequencies due to poor signal

I try fix the signal it coming good now
and i do what you said it same he take me another frequency without any signal i waiting the signal coming but not coming
the problem is when i try run FMP24.cc with DSDplus without 1R it coming good and i can see it's work but without sound

Since I found this thread, let me ask for some help as well. Got DSD+ working and it decoded the system information okay when I entered in the CC, but it is not decoding any of the traffic (IE displaying TGs coming across). I'm using a single SDR at the moment.

Keep in mind, I KNOW NOTHING about DSD+ and am trying to learn, so please keep it simple. I have discovered DSD+ GUI that helped me tune it and get it working. Any help will be appreciated.

Are you using the public release or FastLane?

If FastLane are you using single receiver mode?

From Notes.TXT included with the FastLane releases -

Single-dongle monitoring:

To use a single device, run the 1R.bat file to start DSD+,
then run the appropriate batch file for your device:

DVB-T dongle: FMP24-CC.bat

Airspy: FMPA-CC.bat

SDRPLay: FMPP-CC.bat

Do you have "combined CC/VC Monitoring" ? That may be why you're not hearing voices. It takes you to different frequency because they are all part of one radio system. When someone talks - frequency changes. Can you upload a picture of the other windows (decoding)? What language do you speak, Spanish by any chance?
Also, open:
FMP24-CC.bat and CC.bat/1R.bat
[Las frequencias cambian porque todos son parte del mismo sistema. Por ejemplo - el sistema contiene 6 frequencias - una de "control", y 5 de voz - cuando habla una persona, la frequencia va de "control" a "voz". Esto se llama radio "trunked," y por eso, las frequencias cambian cada vez que habla alguien. ]

Are you using DSDPlus FL or regular? If youre using fastlane, check the "control" tab, and click "combined CC/VC monitoring - thats usually the reason why something will decode but not play voice - it is only decoding the CC and not voice as well. If youre not using fast lane, Im not 100% sure if the regular version has those tabs/options
Also, when you open DSDPlus, what .bat files are you running? It should be FMP24-CC.bat and 1R.bat/CC.bat (fast lane)
Edit: I see you said

Single-dongle monitoring:

To use a single device, run the 1R.bat file to start DSD+,
DVB-T dongle: FMP24-CC.bat
FastLane and running both of those BAT files
FMP-CC.Bat reads FMP24 -rc -i1 -o20001 -P0.0 -b12.5 -f772.60625
1R.bat reads DSDPlus -r1 -T -E -Pwav -i20001 >>1R-log.txt

If youre using fastlane, check the "control" tab, and click "combined CC/VC monitoring - Also, when you open DSDPlus, what .bat files are you running? It should be FMP24-CC.bat and 1R.bat/CC.bat (fast lane)
Had both CC/VC checked. Do I need to run the CC.Bat file also or just the 1R and FMP24-CC?

Nope, you have it right. Im not sure the difference, they seem to work interchangeably.. maybe give it a shot running fmp24-cc.bat and cc.bat instead of 1r.bat, and then when cc.bat opens, change the option from "CC monitoring" to "combined" just to rule it out.
Also, just to go over everything, are you sure that anyone is transmitting? Because even when there are no transmissions, there will be a constant stream of decoding data. Maybe throw a scanner on the same frequency, and see if you hear anything, if you havent already

Thanks, that got it to work, don't know why it wouldn't the first time. Now how do I get the audio or do I need a second SDR for that?

As long as you have CC & VC monitoring enabled, you don't need a second SDR. Also, under "input", "monitor source audio if no sync and signal present" should be selected.
With both of those selected, you should get audio if someone transmits

i speak arabic :)
that why when i enable passive digital monitor it's work fine but without voice but when i enable combined CC/VC Monitoring not working
sorry guys this first time to try this can you show me how to setup combined CC/VC Monitoring


this my settings
CC.bat : DSDPlus -rc -e -fa -i20001 -rc -v3 -wsl400.2 -wss100.200 -wel0.1 -wcl0.445 -wes400.520 >>CC.log
FMP24-CC: FMP24 -rc -i1 -o20001 -P0.0 -b12.5 -f409.82500
1R: DSDPlus -r1 -T -E -Pwav -i20001 >>1R-log.txt
and i runing 1 sdr and dsd+ fast lane
