Hello Everyone - I am doing my best to understand how the TVRx board

works. I have Rev. 3 of the TV board, with MicroTuner module with IF of

~44 MHz.

(Preface - Thanks for your patience, as I am relatively new to GNU radio

and the USRP!)

In my experiment, I have an 80 MHz sine wave at 2 mV pk-pk input to the

TV tuner from a function generator. The goal is to properly record this

signal to a data file, then plot the time domain and FFT of the signal

in Matlab to verify functionality.

My record script is from the examples directory:

#!/usr/bin/env python

“”"

Read a specified number of samples from a USRP and write the data to

a file.

“”"

from gnuradio import gr, eng_notation

from gnuradio import usrp

import sys

class record_graph(gr.flow_graph):

def **init**(self):

gr.flow_graph.**init**(self)

```
self.u = usrp.source_c(which=0, decim_rate=8)
self.dst = gr.file_sink(gr.sizeof_gr_complex, 'recorded.dat')
self.head = gr.head(gr.sizeof_gr_complex, 5000)
self.connect(self.u, self.head, self.dst)
self.u.set_mux(usrp.determine_rx_mux_value(self.u, [1,0]))
self.subdev = usrp.selected_subdev(self.u, [1,0])
self.subdev.set_gain(10)
tuning = self.u.tune(0, self.subdev, 79000000)
print "baseband_freq:", tuning.baseband_freq
print "dxc_freq:", tuning.dxc_freq
print "residual_freq:", tuning.residual_freq
print "inverted:", tuning.inverted
fs = self.u.converter_rate()
print "source converter rate:", fs
```

try:

record_graph().run()

except KeyboardInterrupt:

pass

Now, as I understand it, with my tuning target frequency in this code at

79 MHz and a decimation rate of 16, and 64 MS/s sampling, then the sine

wave signal should appear at approximately a 1 MHz frequency. However,

all I am seeing is wideband noise. Does anybody know why this may be?

Also, what can you tell me about using the TV board?
