rtltcpaccess

rtltcpaccess is a drop-in replacement for RTL283XACCESS.dll that connects to an rtl_tcp server and streams the samples from there. Its main purpose is to allow DAB reception on GNU/Linux and OS X through running the Windows software in Wine, but it works on Windows as well.

Installation

The installation script (dab_install.sh) fetches the DAB software as well as a pre-built version of the library which is also available from here:

https://raw.github.com/steve-m/rtltcpaccess/master/rtltcpaccess.tar.gz

To get the installation script, run:

wget https://raw.github.com/steve-m/rtltcpaccess/master/dab_install.sh
chmod +x dab_install.sh
./dab_install.sh

If you want to build the library yourself, get MinGW and run 'make'.

Usage

Just run rtl_tcp (which comes with librtlsdr). Since the default auto-gain setting doesn't always result in the best SNR, you might want to play with the gain option [-g]. When rtl_tcp is running, start the DAB application.

Settings

By default, rtltcpaccess tries to connect to localhost:1234, you can change this by creating a key in the Wine registry:

wine regedit

Those are the names of the registry keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\rtltcpaccess]
"address"="192.168.1.1"
"port"=dword:00009999
"testmode"=dword:00000000

address is a string, port is a DWORD. If the testmode is enabled it checks for lost samples, just like rtl_test.
