Re: 2 Devices Found By Dump1090.

All,



I have just purchased a new laptop to replace both an ageing eMachines Vista powered antique and a Dell 64bit machine which couldn't run ADQ. I plumped for 64bit W10 ASUS.



ADQ runs well!



I had an R820T dongle and dump1090 successfully connected to PP running as a GS/MU on the 64bit W10 Dell machine, so I copied the dump1090 files over, used zadig to sort the drivers. I pressed go. Dump1090 sees the dongle, however.......dump01090 is saying it is seeing 2 receivers. I will try and attached a screenshot later to give you the exact issue. Even when no other USB device is connected, it still says it sees 2.



I have searched some forums which give an idea of the nature of the issue, but they all relate to Raspberry Pis.



How do I fix this issue please? i.e. how do I avoid it seeing " 0 "?



Many thanks.

I have seen a similar thing before, but not sure what caused it.



If I remember well a reboot solved it.



Have you done the zadig routine the proper way?



Cheers,

Dick

Hi Dick,



Yes I have. I'll try it again to double check.



I can't post the screen shot here, so I'll attempt to re-create the issue textually:



"Found 2 device(s):



0: random wingdings SN: (currently selected)

1: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000013

usb_open error -12

Error opening the RTLSDR device: No error"



HTH

Interestingly, zadig also sees 2 "Bulk-In Interfaces" 0 and 1.

AFAIK that is normal.

And you only need to assign the new driver to one of them.

Not sure which one, just have a look at the instructions on the (zadig?)

site.



Cheers,

Dick

Looks like your program selected device 0 (the default), which also seems

'misconfigured'.

Device 1 seems correct.

If you run dump1090 and tell it to use device 1 you should be fine, although

you then have not solved the original problem ;-)



Cheers,

Dick

Dick,



Agreed! That's the conclusion I came to.



The question is how do you achieve that!?



How do I get dump1090 to use Device 1 instead of device 0?



Paul.



----------------------------

#130382 Jul 22, 2017

Paul,



Run dump1090 like this:

dump1090.exe --help

and you will get all the runtime options.



If you want them saved for later reference run it like this:

dump1090.exe --help > dump1090-help.txt

and all options will be written to the file "dump1090-help.txt"



To use a specific device yuo have to use this option:

--device-index index>

which in your case should read

--device-index 1



But be aware that this does not solve your original problem of showing 2

dongles.

It just is a detour to get things going.



Cheers,

Dick

It's possible that it's detecting the "usb hub" that is built into the motherboard creating all your usb ports. You can pick the device to use by adding the

--device-index index>



as a command line option where index> is the number of the device. in your case you'd need to set it to 1

Dick and Lordironforge,



Thanks for your time, the new command line appears to have worked, now up and running! Cracking stuff.



Just PP to re-intsall now.



Thanks again.



Happy days.

HI Paul et all!



Paul, sometimes this has happened to me too and the solution, for my part, is

from the taskbar, eject the dongle, disconnect it from the USB socket and

reconnect it.

I hope that can help you.
