XCVR2450 issues

Hi,

we received two new XCVR2450 boards today (serial ~1390), and it seems
they refuse to work out of the box. I tested the boards both with UHD
and raw ethernet firmware+FPGA, the board both are unable to tune to
different frequencies, or any frequency for that matter. The
usrp2_fft.py script complains that it failed to set the frequency, an
older board works with the same code (serial ~700).

For UHD, it identifies the boards correctly, but it looks like the
attached picture everywhere, with or without antenna :wink:

Did something change in the way to handle the boards?

Due to size issues, the xcvr handling had to be moved into its own image
for the gnuradio usrp2 drivers. Did you use the xcvr-specfic firmware
image?

usrp2_fft.py will not work when the uhd images on the sd card. But im
not sure what you were running. :slight_smile:
