Re: Is any kind of SDR app's working on RPI2?

GQRX runs well on a Pi3 but I think it's going to be slow on a Pi2, although I haven't tested it on one. It and CubicSDR also run well on the Mac, making the Pi versions seem very underpowered. CubicSDR could be altogether much too demanding to run on a Pi2. gnuradio has a huge learning curve as is ...

On a Pi3 running Raspbian PIXEL the low-voltage lightning-bolt usually stays on and the Pi's red power light will flicker irregularly. I'm powering the Pi and the RTL stick from a powered USB hub via a 6-foot USB cable to separate th...

I made the first partition about 6GB -- is there any minimum PIXEL needs for the Linux partition? I was tryin...

Re: jackd and IQaudio i2s-bus card not working

The solution is given at: <https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/sonic-pi/BvkSTW0Cqnk> Thanks to the above advice, I got Sonic Pi running on a Pi2 with a HiFiBerry DAC+ using the latest Raspbian, but the sound is stuttering with a regular clicking sound, about 4-6 clicks/sec (guesstimate). I've tr...
