I recently compiled and installed gnuradio.
I then tried to find the usrp2:
00:50:c2:85::3b:5c hw_rev = 0x0400
Next I tried to plot an FFT of the GPS L1 signal (note that my
daughterboard is a dbsrx2)
#usrp2_fft.py -f 1.57542G
usrp2: channel 0 not receiving
Where am I going wrong? I have seen other posts with people facing
the same problem but they are from way back in mid-2010 and with
different daughterboards from mine.
- daughterboard is a dbsrx2
- usrp2 was ordered sometime in October 2010
- I have the uhd driver installed but figured that it can exist
with the "usual" Ethernet driver
- Are there any firmware and/or fpga upgrades I am supposed to

When you go to UHD, you have to change the firmware on the USRP2,
which is available here:
Further, the UHD provides a different API than "classic", and
usrp2_fft.py uses the "classic" API.
You can synthesize the functionality of usrp2_fft.py, using an UHD
source, within Gnuradio Companion,
in about five minutes.
With the DBS_RX2, you have no choice but to convert to UHD (or
back-port the DBS_RX2 support into
the "classic" USRP2 interface).
All new hardware from Ettus will only be supported using the UHD
interface, and UHD is now robust enough
that I recommend *all* new users use it.
