Maybe try a enquiry post below if you can’t fix the timezone(?) RDS CT issue.
Petarko> I’ve been meaning to get the RTL-SDR.com dongle. I see that it’s 8-bit too but should be of better quality right?
No I wouldn’t think you would notice a difference in all honesty & I’d save my money by not purchasing it. I purchased a 2016 era Noo-Elec SDR dongle. Then either in 2018 or 2019 I purchased the better spec & later release NooElec dongle which rivals the later RTL-SDR. I couldn’t detect any noticeable improvement with the later. Forget the 8 bit cheapy devices. If you need an SDR for DAB+ & can afford it consider a Airspy R2 or SDR Play if your budget is less than A$250. I’ve no idea how the Airspy Mini performs, but R2 is fairly good for price from several reports. Im keen on seeing its successor in future for better DAB+ performance & wideband monitoring of the FM band.
QIRX instal is an unwanted overly complex instal product from the author’s description & options (shouldn’t be so difficult) - I eventually got it going in Windows 7. I think I had to add ALL the required third party files etc to get it working properly.
Under my Win 10 machine I recently installed it & had lots of issues, trying to remember how I got it all going under Win 7 without all the errors etc. Have some of it going in Win 10, but lots of start up errors.
It is a nice program when it works & after getting though the hurdles…
Been too busy to tackle it again.
SDR-J has an ugly GUI, but it works (except for not displaying one type of Slideshow image file type from memory) & is flexible & the author is very helpful
Good. PAL connectors have given me issues in the past, unless new, clean & tight fitting.
F is the better, but not as fast to unplug/plug etc.
