OK- I've finagled the Dream code into giving me a file output from transmitting and can even go into a FIFO and back into Dream receive- the only problem is the dream decoder doesn't seem to lock on to a signal. I have the code to receive off of the USRP into a FIFO (complements of Mateo Campanella) which Dream can then supposedly use as an input.. There doesn't seem to be any code to write out WAV file headers (on the transmit side- the rx code does have the ability to decode to a wav file) or anything, but I think the data may be raw data that you'd presumably pipe to /dev/audio or something. If say it is indeed a wav file, minus the header, theoretically how would I take this output file and transmit it over the USRP (LF TX or Basic TX) through a short rf patch cable into the basic RX or LF-RX and back into Dream.. Similarly, if I took one of the Dream sample encoded files- which are in fact wav audio- how would I transmit that? I anxiously await the gnuradio originated code to do this sort of thing more directly- but would appreciate any input anyone might have! Thanks in advance! -Brett

Replying to myself here.. I imported the data as raw using Audacity under windows Signed 16 bit little endian and that seemed to result in appropriate sounding (encoded) stereo audio. Using that as a source file under windows does not yield results however. Still looking for more information.

We typically output raw data files. Sometimes float, sometimes short (16-bits). Sox can be used to convert these to any other file you're likely to want. You could also rig up a variant of the file sink to do wav files. Matt
