WBX - only real signal after some time

Hello.

I just wondered if anyone else has experienced that the WBX stops
sending
the quadrature component of the complex signal after a while. This
happens
especially if I have sliders for setting the frequencies or the gain,
and
the sliders are slided. (so that a frequency change control signal is
sent
several times successively)
In an FFT-sink, this is observed as a display mirrored around the base
frequency.

I have not found any other solution to fix this than to restart the
whole
program every time it happens. This has never happened when using the
TVRX
board.

I wonder if this is normal for these daughterboards, and that one just
has
to ensure that they do not get a lot of frequency setting control
messages
successively, or if there is a workaround.

The TVRX isn’t actually a quadrature front-end, so quadrature is
synthesized within the FPGA.

I don’t think it’s normal. Something definitely wonky. Are you using
UHD, or “traditional” ??

There was something similar in UHD a couple of months back, but it was
for USRP2, so I don’t
think that’s it.

Thanks

I am using the traditional driver. Maybe I can try to use another
computer
or to put the board in the other slot,
and see if the problem remains the same.

It’s working wonderfully now after I moved it to side B. More
investigation
is needed to find the problem…
But for the moment I’ll just enjoy the working set-up!

(btw: the loss of the complex signal is apparently not the only problem
when
it’s in slot A. It is also unstable and hangs after a while… However,
when
it’s in slot B, everything’s fine)
