GNU Radio Companion (GRC) seems to run fine.Set up a very basic PlutoSDR Source and a QT GUI Frequency Sink.
Tried to run GRC with PlutoSDR Source and Device URI set to ip:pluto:local I get these errors: File "C:\Program Files\GNURadio-3.7\lib\site-packages\gnuradio\iio\iio_pluto_source_swig.py", line 126, in make return _iio_pluto_source_swig.pluto_source_make(*args, **kwargs)RuntimeError: Unable to create contextERROR: Unable to find host: No such host is known.
Someone said to use ip:pluto:local...
Then I set Device URI to 192.168.2.1I get this error:gr::pagesize: no info; setting pagesize = 4096thread[thread-per-block: <block fmcomms2_source (3)>]: Unable to create buffer!
Just kind of sits there.Have to stop the process.
By the way, while logged in a root, I saw that I have an early AD9364 version.
# fw_printenv attr_nameattr_name=compatible# fw_printenv attr_valattr_val=ad9364
I read there were some early PlutoSDR devices built with the AD9364.That chip offers a wider tuning range (70-6000 MHz) and larger bandwidth (56 MHz).Source: www.rtl-sdr.com/.../
Is there another way to find out what chip I have?Remove the cover and look?No user serviceable parts inside?
First make sure you can find Pluto from the command line using the tool "iio_info". You should get something like this:
Library version: 0.17 (git tag: cce2ee2)
Compiled with backends: local xml ip usb
0: 0456:b673 (Analog Devices Inc. PlutoSDR (ADALM-PLUTO)), serial= [usb:3.4.5]
If you do not have the iio tools you can download them from here: https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/libiio/releases/tag/v0.15
From this iio_info command the URI for the GNU-Radio block is provided. In the case about the URI is "usb:3.4.5". It will be unique for your system and everytime you plug in Pluto.
# iio_info -sLibrary version: 0.15 (git tag: v0.15)Compiled with backends: local xml ip usb serialAvailable contexts: 0: Local devices [local:]#
by the way, I also tried to run using SDRSharp. It sees the device, but it errors out with "unable to create buffer."
Sorry, wrong command line. I went to the bin folder on my C: drive.
C:\Program Files\IIO Oscilloscope\bin
From there I ran iio_info.exe
C:\Program Files\IIO Oscilloscope\bin>iio_info.exeLibrary version: 0.17 (git tag: cce2ee2)Compiled with backends: xml ip usb serialUnable to create IIO context: Function not implemented
Did you install the driver? https://wiki.analog.com/university/tools/pluto/drivers/windows
