Re: 32 vs 64 bits

Hi all ! I ran SFC, it discovered and corrected some alleged corrupt files in the System. This did'nt change anything. Strangely lost frames and audio glitches reappeared during some time though I did not change ANY item in setup. I could not find any application running in the background. Now thing...

Re: 32 vs 64 bits

Hi all First let me thank you Scott : I had forgotten to check the VSync box on both versions of Thetis. Doing that improved the frame dropout by 99.9%. (using two, now old, NVIDIA GTX 750 cards on two full HD 22" full HD Samsung monitors). I tried to investigate more extensively the processor ...

Re: Hercules DJControl Starlight

Hi Ramdor

I got a Hercules Starlight and I am experiencing the same problem : I can't get the
console working thru the midi interface in Thetis.
Could you give some details concerning the use of the midi translator ? I am stuck.

Re: Thetis 2.8.9 Released!

Hi Joen N9VX Distorsion and echoes on your transmitted signal may indicate RF feedback. It should not occur on every ham band and could be cured by eliminating ground loops in your shack. Sometimes your mike and audio line may pick up RF as well. I solved the problem by using a balanced line for the...

Hi Scott,

Has Hercules Starlight Compact which seems very similar to your controler been successfully used for this task ?
I can get one for a good price and would like to test it.
Which labeling system did you use ?

Re: Anyone ever run Pure Signal with a non-linear amplifier? Say a class C?

Wow does that mean that PS will make a class C amplifier feel like a true linear class A or AB ? Class C amps boosting FM or pure carrier signals would not need PS. Did you check the behaviour on a separate SDR receiver or spectrum analyzer ? This could simplify and cheapen PA in the future. It's ha...
