Two rtl2832 dongles in a GRC project

I try to make project with two dongles rtl2832+r820.

In GNU Radio Companion v3.7.6.1-58-g620817ed I made simple project with
two equal channels containing rtl2832_source block and
blocks_ctrlport_probe2. And I have an error. The output of programm is:
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Warning: This flow graph may not have flow control: no audio or RF hardware

Separatly dongles are working properly. And if I run one project for the
one dongle and one more for the second one all is OK.
Please help me to what direction I have to go.
Thank You.

I’m not familiar with this particular block you’re using, but I highly
recommend you use gr-osmosdr’s source block instead. It is widely used
and works with rtl-sdr devices, and I can confirm that it handles
multiple devices well.

With gr-osmosdr, you can use the device string to specify two RTL
dongles generically:

osmosdr.source(‘rtl=0’)
osmosdr.source(‘rtl=1’)

or using their EEPROM serials instead, which is useful for consistent
selection. (Note that most dongles come from the factory with a serial
number like ‘000001’, so you’ll have to use the rtl_eeprom tool to
rewrite them to unique text of your choice.)
