I finally got the usrp up and running. I am having two problems.
I believe that the data rate is overflowing the usb line becuase the
sound from usrp_wfm_rcv.py is jerky and the text UaUaUaUaUa… is
streaming to the screen (about 1-2 times per second). I am running the
pre-compiled packages available through Ubuntu on a Dell inspiron 1501
1.6 GHz processor. Would compiling from scratch help? Is there a way
to decimate the data before it comes across the usb?
I need to unplug and plug the usrp after each use otherwise I get the
“RuntimeError: Unable to find USRP #0”. Cycling the power is the only
work around I have at this point. Any suggestions on how to fix this
one? Full disclosure: I had to copy the files from
/usr/local/share/usrp/Rev* to /usr/share/usrp to get the firmware to
automatically load do I need to do anything else?
Thanks for any help or advice.
