I'm having trouble getting FMPA to recognize the serial number I've put in FMPA.cfg for my Airspy Mini. I used Airspy host tools to get the serial number, and I'm certain it's entered into the .cfg file properly. This is how I have it formatted:
Code:
 xxxxxxxxxxxxx30B ; Airspy serial number list
2.5 ; sampling rate (2.5 or 10)
1024 ; spectrum window width
32 ; FFT size (16k, 32k, 64k)
10 ; spectrum update rate in Hz
5000 -6250 7500 12500 15000 25000 100000 ; step size table; units = Hz; negate default
. ; DSD+ path
.\FMPA-FreqList.csv ; primary frequency list CSV path\filename
.\FMPA-FreqList2.csv ; auxiliary frequency list CSV path\filename
miles ; miles or kilometers
99.9 ; search distance
19.7163 -155.6241 ; search origin
Is this correct?
When I run fmpa (without any extensions, I get the following:

Code:
FMPA 2.9

FMPA -h for help summary

Current working directory is "C:\Users\musicman476\Downloads\DSDPlus1p101"
Airspy serial number list:  -none-
Spectrum window width: 1024
FFT size: 32,768
Spectrum update rate: 10 Hz
Step size table:  5.000  6.250  7.500  12.500  15.000  25.000  100.000
DSD+ path is "C:\Users\musicman476\Downloads\DSDPlus1p101"
Primary frequency list: '.\FMPA-FreqList.csv'
Secondary frequency list: '.\FMPA-FreqList2.csv'
Database search distance: 99.90 miles
Base latitude/longitude: 19.7163 -155.6241

Audio output device #1 = 'Speaker/HP (Realtek High Defini'
Audio output device #2 = 'Line 1 (Virtual Audio Cable)'

Airspy lib version = 1.0.6
Airspy lib not supported; update airspy.dll to a newer version
Any help would be appreciated!

Put your Serial number at the last line. 1st few lines are reserved.

From FMPA.txt:

FMPA.cfg

The first four lines in FMPA.cfg should not be changed at this time.
The remaining lines can be edited as required.
See FMP.txt for configuration file details.

I tried it like you've shown and it's working here with FMPA 2.9. Are you sure you haven't done something like substitute an 'I' for a '1' or an 'O' for a '0'?

Thanks for all your help, but it's still not working...
I've double checked that SN is keyed in correctly. Per Wraith's suggestion, my FMPA.cfg file looks like this now:
Code:
2.5 ; sampling rate (2.5 or 10)
1024 ; spectrum window width
32 ; FFT size (16k, 32k, 64k)
10 ; spectrum update rate in Hz
5000 -6250 7500 12500 15000 25000 100000 ; step size table; units = Hz; negate default
. ; DSD+ path
.\FMPA-FreqList.csv ; primary frequency list CSV path\filename
.\FMPA-FreqList2.csv ; auxiliary frequency list CSV path\filename
miles ; miles or kilometers
99.9 ; search distance
19.7163 -155.6241 ; search origin
0x04A464C8372B730B ; Airspy serial number list
When I run FMPA, this is what I get:
Code:

This tells me FMPA still isn't seeing the serial number.
Also, when I run the airspy_lib_version from the host tools, it tells me I'm running v. 1.0.9 as expected. However, FMPA still thinks I'm using 1.0.6 for some reason??

From the changelog:

FMPA v2.1

an Airspy serial number list has been added to FMPA.cfg

the first line of FMPA.cfg is now used for the (optional) Airspy serial number list

the first listed serial number will be device #1, second serial is device #2, etc.


First line. Not last line. And there is no 0x, just 16 hexadecimal digits.


Also, when I run the airspy_lib_version from the host tools, it tells me I'm running v. 1.0.9 as expected. However, FMPA still thinks I'm using 1.0.6 for some reason??
When you run where? Obviously not where you run FMPA from. How many copies of airspy.dll do you have on your PC? At least one of them is version 1.0.9, but you appear to also have an old 1.0.6 copy.

Thanks for your help! I was able to get it working by reverting back to FMPA 2.7 and replacing the Airspy.dll with the one from my SDR# folder.
