Yes, you could do 384 stitched or not stitched, or 192 not stitched with PureSignal.

Re: New Protocol Update

I don't know for certain, but the MAC (media access controller), which is in the FPGA (the PHY chip is external), is probably a major contributor at GigE speeds. There would also be the faster IF sample rate processing, if enabled (up to 1.5Msamples/sec). To have the option of running at 100BASE-T s...

Re: Omnirig and HPSDR setup ???

Once you start VSPE you should never have to restart it.

So it would appear that Omnirig must be started first (bad software design!)

Good to know, thanks!

Re: New Protocol Update

There are much newer versions of the P2 firmware ready. They work a lot better than the versions currently posted to Github. I have been lobbying hard for their release, but so far no joy. One of the challenges with P2 is that it causes the power consumption of the FPGA on the Hermes (14 and 16 bit ...

Try setting Omnirig for a Kenwood TS2000 instead. The CAT commands are the same as for PowerSDR.

Re: Remote power on/off ?

If the power switch is switching any significant power an RCA connector may not be adequate.

Joe--I have no idea about the power switch. I'd have to open up my 8000 to take a look, same as you, I'm afraid. As for a USB connection for the Arduino, I had read in the past about someone using something like this cable, and sneaking it out between the cover and rear panel. https://www.amazon.com...

Re: ANAN-200D and WSJT-X/FT8 TX tone on waterfall display mushrooms

Scott: why is there a TX Profile shown when I'm in FT8? I'd have thought it would be 'everything off'. Because there are other things in the TX profile, most notably TX passband settings, that are useful to be controlled as part of a TX profile during digit op's. The radio will use those parts of t...

Re: Omnirig and HPSDR setup ???

Rig not responding is better than port not found. Your virtual port setup looks good so I'm running out of ideas. I don't have Omnirig here to test. Can you set DTR and RTS to "none" in Omnirig? Also, you might as well increase your baud rate to the highest speed.

To solve the PTT problem, in Setup > Audio > VAC1, turn off (uncheck) all of the "Allow ... to override/bypass VAC for phone" options. I'll need to add that to the tutorial, eh? ;) Future recommendation: since solutions don't seem to come to you naturally on their own, I'd recommend that i...

Re: ANAN-200D and WSJT-X/FT8 TX tone on waterfall display mushrooms

Yes, as Gary says, select DIGU for digi modes. Doing this will automatically disable all transmit audio signal processing in PowerSDR (EQ, compressors, etc.) This is very important as such signals must be transmitted in an unmodified fashion. And as Gary also says, turn on DUP. This will display the...

Potato adds a third virtual channel so that we will be able to mix VAC1 (RX1) and VAC2 (RX2) audio together. Or be able to mix and route to two different digi mode programs independently.

Re: Omnirig and HPSDR setup ???

When you get a "port is not available" error, that means that piece of software has not given up the port properly. You can restart the suspect software, or sometimes it is just simpler and better to reboot and start from scratch.

Re: Omnirig and HPSDR setup ???

Your VSPE setup is wrong. You need to use a "pair", not a "connector".

Set up a pair of ports. Assign one port of the pair to PowerSDR, the other to Omnirig.
