Re: Balanced (XLR) microphone connections

Cecil--of course a microphone level signal will not properly drive the line input. Why not just make a cable to connect to the microphone input? If you have your heart set on driving the line input, as you point out you will need a microphone preamplifier. I have always been partial to the very inex...

Re: Orion MKII old protocol f/w 2.5

Rick--I can't update the repo. It has to be Joe. Abhi said NO systems were going to ship with anything beyond 2.3 because none had the new memory in them yet. So color me confused!

Nevertheless, and most important, thanks for all that you do! :)

Re: Orion MKII old protocol f/w 2.5

The latest official release is 2.3: https://github.com/TAPR/OpenHPSDR-Firmware/tree/master/Protocol%201/Orion_MkII%20(ANAN-7000DLE_ANAN-8000DLE) I recommend you use that. How old is this 7000? Is it brand new? If so, it is possible that the factory shipped it with something experimental by accident....

When PowerSDR won't start or exhibits bizarre behavior (database reset/removal)

All data, and the entire state of PowerSDR, is stored in a series of files. See "Where are my settings stored and how can I back them up?" A corrupted database file can cause PowerSDR to not start, or to exhibit really bizarre behavior. The design of the database code in PowerSDR predates ...

That's exactly right on the DDC assignments, Rob.

If you can't seem to find settings that keep the VAC resampler stable, just turn it off by checking the two "Force" checkboxes and leave the rate parameters set to 1.00000.

Re: HTTP Server?

It has some very rudimentary and fragmented functionality and is not by any means a finished capability. I've tried it and it shows great promise for the future. I have no idea who the dev's are/were on this, but perhaps we should start sending them free pizza and beer ;)

Re: Anan 7000 Firmware

The best firmware for both protocols are the latest revisions posted to the TAPR Github repository. See the links in the sticky posts in the firmware sub-forum here.

The very recent P2 release for the Orion MKII is working pretty good for most people on both the 7000 and 8000 hardware units.

Re: how to controll this 2 attenuator ???

This is controlled from the main console via the ATT control. 10dB selects the 10dB pad, 20dB selects the 20dB pad, and 30dB selects both. If you select more than that the software starts to add in attenuation from the step attenuator IC on the SDR board itself. If you want finer grain control than ...

Thetis, poor VAC audio quality, and the resampler

If you are experiencing poor VAC audio quality with Thetis it is probably because you are not using the resampler properly. You can either turn it off completely, or develop some VAC settings that make it operate in a stable fashion. The latter is more work, but the reward is better audio quality th...

It appears that those with 7000's and 8000's are faring better than those with 200D's. Not enough traffic from those with other radios to get a feel yet.
