Hi Marcus and Ellie,

Thanks again for the flow graph Marcus. It's a very impressive piece of work. If one has only one SDR, it is necessary to change the input number of channels to 1, I think(?) Then connect the 2nd channel (chan1) to the output of the source
block.   The modified .grc file works right away.


Actually, you don't need to change the graph at all.

Specify a "dummy" file= device as the 2nd device:

  rtl=0  file=/dev/zero,rate=10e6

For example...

    Hi all,

    I am an amateur radio astronomy enthusiast and I've been using an
    RTL-SDR (R820T) USB dongle for my projects; up until now I had
    been using a Windows 8.1 laptop, but that one is on the blink
    right now so I've switched to a Windows 10 computer. I've tried
    to plug in my SDR and run the flowgraph (attached), but I keep
    getting the output below:

    Generating: 'C:\\Users\\Deana White\\Documents\\top_block.py'

    Executing: C:\Program Files\GNURadio-3.7\gr-python27\python.exe

    FATAL: Failed to open rtlsdr device.

    Trying to fill up 1 missing channel(s) with null source(s).
    This is being done to prevent the application from crashing
    due to gnuradio bug #528.

    gr::pagesize: no info; setting pagesize = 4096

    I've run zadig for the RTL-SDR, and it works just fine with SDR#.
    Do you have any advice as to why I might be having this problem
    with the GNURadio flowgraph?

    Thanks very much! Have a great evening and take care,


    I hope someone can help you, Ellie.

    My approach would be to install an operating system on your
    computer.     :) :)   [That was snarkasm, just in case it wasn't
    obvious.... ]

    Once you get it working, you (and Glen et al) might want to play with:
