- May 1, 2012Thank you Bruce for taking the time to clarify the process!
# I have indeed installed HDSDR. I must have installed the skins in error.
# The only driver I've installed is PE0FKO-USB-Driver-184.108.40.206. Looking at the zip file contents I see several files named libusb0.dll, so that's probably the correct driver?
# I did a search for EXTio.dll on the system but all it found was one dll file named ExtIO_Si570.dll, in the Programs\CFGSR folder. In case that's the dll file you wer4e referring to, I've placed a copy of it in the Programs\HDSDR folder.
# with regard to your other post, I did have some confusion over the I/Q signals and where they connect to the audio interface. I figured that since the socket on the SDR board was an INPUT, the other end of the lead would plug into two of the four audio interface OUTPUTS.
I wondered about this since those audio interface outputs usually go to a channel on the Behringer mixing desk where I can monitor the audio stream. So it should go to the interface inputs?
