Compatibility with latest SDR#

Post by ykhaled » Fri Dec 22, 2017 4:20 pm

Hi all, do you know if BladeRF works with the latest SDR#? I've been trying but no luck - I must be missing something.

1- Downloaded: ... s/tag/v0.3
2- Downloaded latest x86 SDR# from AirSpy and extracted all contents to program files x86. Tested with Audio card and it works.
3- Extracted all files from (1) to the same folder in (2)
4- Added the following line to frontEnds
<add key="BladeRF" value="SDRSharp.BladeRF.BladeRFIO,SDRSharp.BladeRF" />
5- Installed BladeRF driver via the Windows Installer

I launch the application but its not showing up in the sources (front-ends).
I'm running Windows 10 pro Dot Net 4.6.2

6- Now I tried copying the contents of c:/Program files/bladeRF/x86 to SDR# root folder - same issue

something's broken in the wrapper. I'm working on a fix and will release a new version as soon as I can.

Got an x40+xb200 combo just a few days ago.
I tried everything in different programs but I can't get the thing running (except in SDR Angel).

1. SDR Sharp.
Blade is not even listed even if the dll and the magic line are inserted.

2. SDR Console 2 and 3 are telling me no device found when I select in the dropbox bladerf.....

SDR Angel, blade runs without problems and so can I exclude a hardware error.
CAn someone explain a little bit better how to connect x40 and xb-200? I want to use it for general signal search. Also how can I define the converter in SDR Console if SDR Console can drive the device?

Thank you for your time

Quick note, if you are running the bladeRF 2.0 micro use our fork of the SDR# plugin: the link comes with precompiled binaries.
If you are using an earlier generation bladeRF please use the original ... s/tag/v0.3 SDR# repo.

Quick note about SDR#, I've avoided having to battle UAC by unzipping things to my home directory.

Robert thanks for your answer,
as I stated in my query I have an X40+ xb200 combo but in SDR is not even listed.
Strange is that SDR Console v3 (latest version) can drive the X40 when I select the bladerf v2 as receiver type. When I set it to ver. 1 then I go "no device found" message.....
