Re: [softrock40] Re: Ensemble II output
- Leonard, I appreciate all of the answers I am getting from everyone. I have checked all of the solder points, reflowed(?sp) each pin of the ICs. One measurement that bothers me is one in which I am supposed to get half of the rail voltage ( 5v). but I get 4.5volts.Anyway, I am, still checking. Thanks for the reply.Junius W5HIR----- Original Message -----From: Leonard McGaritySent: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 6:55 PMSubject: [softrock40] Re: Ensemble II outputDon’t know if this applies to the problem described in this thread, but I too was initially not getting the I/Q signal where it needed to go. Both my PC (on MB sound) and netbook have little/no documentation as to whether a stereo input or not. The netbook is likely mono only, and rather than start poking the 3.5mm stereo I/Q plug into the PC’s sound card ports, posssibly damage, I bought a known stereo input PCI sound card, installed, now it all works great. I use SDR-Radio on both my Ensemble II and SDR-IQ. I find the Si570 must init with CFGSR unless PC is restarted with Ensemble II powered, USB at least connected. The SDR-IQ needs the USB connection cycled unless it too is USB connected/powered at start up. I have a Win 7 32 bit SP1 system and now an Audiophile 192 PCI sound card. Maybe Win 7 has a quirk juggling USB ports/connects, after start, don’t know, but never seen this with other USB devices, eg printers, etc.. Hope something herein helps.. Link, WV4I

Did you mention that?
It could well be your problem.
