I've ordered the recommended audio adapter, but while I wait for it to arrive, I tried a working "3D Sound adapter". It looks like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EXTERNAL-VIR ... Sw56RexnLT.
I ran Sound_Test which listed:
and amended Lang_RX.py and Lang_TX.py and restarted Langstone. Running Sound_Test again via putty, it still says "Unable to find the default sound device". Does that mean Langstone is not using my adapter?
When I start Langstone, I don't get a "no sound adapter" message. I get the message: "Lang_RX.py Not Responding"
I just read your update to the post on diagnostics and ran set_sound as you suggested. I also unplugged the audio card from USB and made sure the Pluto is connected to a USB3 slot (as is Minitiouner).
Langstone boots to a waterfall display now. There is sound! I'm not sure what is different. Maybe the USB arrangement? Or maybe set_sound fixed something? Many thanks for all your work on this.
Mike, I'm not sure if I can claim to be a programmer. I programmed a bit on an English Electric KDF9 a while back and I might have picked up a few tricks since then. We are all learning. I dare say you and others on this forum go back even further!
I think I had in the Lang_RX.py file ...CARD=Headphones... and in Lang_TX.py ...CARD=Set..., but it seems in both files now ...CARD=Set..., so it looks like set_sound has sorted it.
Thank you to you and Mike for your responses.
Langstone is an interesting and exciting project.
I'll try operating the transciever.
There are multiple files to edit depending on which Portsdown output you want to send to the card. If you tell me which audio output you want (streamer, DATV Receiver, RTL-FM receiver.....), I can give you some pointers as to the files to edit.
I now get Langstone audio output from this dongle. In Portsdown4, I set RX>Config to Audio out USB dongle, but the DATV receiver output didn't move to the dongle.
I'm trying to have just one audio output for both Portsdown4 and Langstone.
