Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] WBX - only real signal after some time

It's working wonderfully now after I moved it to side B. More investigation is needed to find the problem...
But for the moment I'll just enjoy the working set-up!

(btw: the loss of the complex signal is apparently not the only problem when it's in slot A. It is also unstable and hangs after a while.. However, when it's in slot B, everything's fine)

I am using the traditional driver. Maybe I can try to use another computer or to put the board in the other slot,
and see if the problem remains the same.

The TVRX isn't actually a quadrature front-end, so quadrature is
synthesized within the FPGA.

I don't think it's normal.  Something definitely wonky.   Are you using
UHD, or "traditional" ??

There was something *similar* in UHD a couple of months back, but it was
for USRP2, so I don't
 think that's it.
