      OK Alan and Warren

      Many thanks for the offers of help ... all is resolved I now have a copy of HDSDR 2.15 its installed and all is well again. Jack kindly sent me a copy. It has also been saved as a zipped file to be on the safe side.
      Developers (LC)have mailed me and I tried to explain what I was doing. I have not analysed the problem and put it down to my lack of knowledge. However using 2.15 as intuitively presented it worked but the same commands in 2.5 don't seem to work ... for me!

      The fact it's a DVB-t stick should not affect what I am doing as I am just off setting the dial frequency to allow for the use of an up - converter.

      Duno... I will play some more but have used a huge amount of time trying to get my head around it...... I have to say 2.5 is worth having for reasons previously stated so hope I can make it work... in the mean time I have 2.15 available thanks to Jack..... phew!

      Regards Pete M0FMT.

        Alan,

        Would you mind sending me v2.15 of HDSDR? I'm having problems
        getting HDSDR to read a DVB stick. I know the stick works. I've
        tried several re-installs with no success. I know others have had
        success with previous verions, so I'd like to try that approach.

        Thanks,
        Michael KD4SGN

          Hi Michael,

          we tested 2.50 with several RTL Dongles. With the E4000, FC0013 and the R920T tuner. It works with all of them.

          * Which ExtIO are you using?
          * Have you copied all necessary ExtIO files into the newly installed HDSDR directory? Reinstalled the ExtIO?
          * Have you installed and configured Zadig (USB) drivers?

          Would you try deleting the registry with the installed "delete_settings.cmd" which should be in the same program directory where the HDSDR.exe is installed.

          kind regards,
          LC

            LC,

            Thanks very much for all your help in sorting out the difficulties
            with the RTL Dongle. The problem was not with HDSDR at all. It
            turned out to be a faulty USB extension cable. After replacing the
            cable, HDSDR has performed flawlessly. I'm looking forward to using
            it in the future. I'm impressed with both the software and the great
            user support.

            Best regards,
            Michael KD4SGN
