The audio quailty of this software blows DSD+ away, hands down. But is there a way to hold on a single talk group? And, is there a delay setting so it won't keeping jumping to different conversations?
That's not accurate. SDRTrunk will indeed "trunk track" a system, but it does so across the entire spectrum that your dongle(s) can receive. A traditional scanner or even a real subscriber radio has a single receiver, so it's limited to being able to only receive a single transmission at a time. That's why scanners and radios must return to the control channel after each transmission's hang time expires, so they can continue to decode the talkgroup grants, then tuning to the voice channels, and so on. DSD+ single-receiver mode works the same way, leaving the control channel to jump to a voice channel.So if SDRTrunk doesn't let you hold on a talk group, then that basically means it doesn't to trunktracking. It's not a lot different than back in the day before we had trunking scanners when all you could do was conventionally scan the frequencies. SDRTrunk basically jumps around the same way and doesn't stay on a conversation.
