PDW Help Please

Post by toeskneez » Tue Nov 19, 2019 1:42 pm

So I have an issue which I have no idea why it happens.
As per the screenshot, I can get days of perfect decoding and then for some reason it just turns to garble. I reset and it can be good again for hours, sometimes days, but sometimes even after a few minutes it can happen again and it never rights itself. I am running an RTL-SDR using Airspy and have been for ages. I have tried all sorts of different volume combos, but with no luck.
Originally I thought it may have been a caching issue, but now I am just not sure. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated.

I have similar issues with Airspy/RTL-SDR and PDW, I could not solve it but I did reduce it by creating a batch script to restart PDW every hour that seemed to reduce it a lot.

This happens to me, but generally only after a week or so of continuous decoding
