DSD+ on a laptop with one mic / headphone jack

Postby AndrewIrvine » Sat Jul 25, 2020 11:55 am

Got a new laptop set up at last, my previous had a separate headphone / microphone socket, this just has the one. i take it I need some sort of splitter to differentiate? The oscillator like icon is flat-lining. I've tried the different outputs but nothing.

Try using a USB sound card instead This one definitely works with DSD+

but something as cheap as this will likely work too:

As above, i had the same issue with mine. Ended up just getting an SDR Usb stick dongle.

I've ordered the cheaper one, see how it goes. Hopefully it will work

A SDR device and download open ear and you can listen to DMR and Tetra without needing anything else, no cables, no wires, just plug in and go.

that limits what I can listen to in one go, with the discriminator I can run search banks of my choice. I have got the programming in, the oscilloscope is moving, but I can't get the decoding bit. I've tried changing the speaker / microphone inputs, reduced the microphone to 60% as too much stops it decoding, apparently.

You can still "Scan" with an SDR. SDRsharp has a option to put banks in to scan.

I don't have Sharp so didn't know you could.

The Microphone inputs are often filtered and in advanced settings you have odd things like microphone boost and auto echo cancellation settings.
They all render the input too processed to decode.
A usb sound device with a line in stops windows interfering with the signal.
