Re: [perseus_SDR] RE: Still Having Norton Issues
- Interesting...I've had Norton running on my machines for the last 13
years without a hitch (knock on wood). CPU load has always been low (as
compared to the one time I installed McAffee). Right now I run Windows
7 on two computers and run the Perseus on both without a hitch. I also
have a netbook I just upgraded to W8 and have not had a problem with
Perseus and Norton on that machine either.

While you didn't say which Atom (there are several generations), my Asus EEE 10125C (with the Atom 2700) runs Perseus OK (recording and playback, 2 MSPS) with the Super Hybrid Engine set to high performance. My older Asus EEE 1000HA (N260 based) will also do OK but it's necessary to overclock to near 2 GHZ to remove stuttering.
I'm aware of a handful of DXers using Atom based netbooks with Perseus. There have been a couple of reviews about DXers using netbooks with Perseus. It can be done.

And, I think it is something you would only detect by doing a virtually instantaneous side by side comparisonBefore I curiously decided to do the side by side I had observed the Perseus worked with the Core CPU and worked seemingly fine with the Atom processor. After all, it was receiving and displaying signals and I had no reason to suspect that signals were actually some 2 S-units down. As the netbook is old (it was Acer's first model netbook) and I was no longer using it I was thinking to just dedicate it to SDR. Then it occurred to me to do the comparison just to make sure the netbook was up to the task. When I saw the results I was extremely methodical to insure every setting and all conditions were identical. I really wanted the netbook to perform as opposed to putting back on the shelf to collect dust. It simply didn't.So, back on the shelf it goes and I want to thank everyone for their suggestions.Regards to the groupPS I took both PC's out of their battery power save modes to insure the CPU's weren't being throttled back.On Sep 8, 2013, at 12:11 PM, Simon Brown <simon@...> wrote:
My thoughts, I think they were covered but:
1) Is the ATOM system running with 50% or 100% CPU?
2) Are you very sure that all samples are being processed and none lost?
My gut feeling is that the ATOM system can’t process all the data…

My question may seem too simple but anyway I give it a go:
Did you make sure that you are using the same bandwidth
on both Perseus SW instances.
I mean the BW preset button as well as the effective bandwidth
which you can adjust with the mouse or mouse wheel.
