Hi Wolfgang,
I have a separate Ryde RX and can set Quick Tune to work OK.

Also have a Portsdown 4 setup and have been trying to setup Quick Tune to work with it and have had no success so far.

Hi,
Can anyone give me an idiots guide on how to setup a Portsdown 4 RX and Quick Tune.

My poor old brain cell must be missing something.

Hi Martin,

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure QuickTune currently does not work with Portsdown. The Portsdown receiver is not Ryde although both use Longmynd.

Cheers,

Hi Martin,
I didn't think it did but would have been useful on my limited shack space.
I have a separate Ryde RX and connect to my PC with HDMI Video Capture using the camera app in windows 11.
Also have separate speakers connected to the Ryde.

I said no to the mast so you could have it!
