Hello,

Using the latest version of SDR# with a SDRPlayRSPdx.

Just can't figure out how to do this, although probably quite simple.

My Spectrum view now shows from 0 to about 1.5 MHz.

Would like to display several MHz, which I imagine should be possible with an RSPdx.

I have the vertical ZOOM slider on the right all the way down, and have tried using
under the RADIO pulldown the Bandwidth control. I understand that this is equivalent to Sample Rate.
True ?

Has no effect on what the Range limits are displayed in the Spectrum view.

So, how do I show wider frequency swatch in the Spectrum View ?

Thanks,
R.

I didn't realise support for SDRplay devices had been added back into SDRsharp v1732
When was that announced?

Hi FolkS:

For DS506:
On SDR#, I have UHD/USRP checked and in use.
This is what is required to run with my SDRPlay RSPdx.
Can't find anything that looks like your clip above.

If I do click on the Gear icon, there is a Sampling rate option that
appears in the ADS section, BUT it is greyed out.
Why ?

No idea where to find the sampling rate adjustment that was mentioned as controlling the Spectrum range shown.
Any other suggestions as to where it is, or what to try ?

Any other thoughts would be most appreciated.

For Morfis:
Not very well supported, but I did get it to work, with lots of help from the SDRPlay folks.

Suggest you look at the SDRPlay Download software site.
They have a "new" EXIO, .dll, etc. (I think this is the correct terminology ?) and others downloads for the RSPdx.

Now I'm getting more confused, you are telling SDRsharp it's got to connect to an Etus Research SDR but it's really an SDRplay device with an SDRplay ExtIO driver file?

I'm quite used to using ExtIO drivers for various things and have used them with SDRplay devices...never with SDRsharp though.

Surely, if Jon et al at SDRplay have been helping get their kit working with sdrsharp, which doesn't really want integration with SDRplay, then they'd be the best people to ask? If it's their ExtIO.dll you are using then they should know what functionality it can utilise when used as a hack with the sdrsharp Etus frontend.
