Should I be building from https://github.com/libusb/libusb
to have the most current version?
Does it work with Windows 10 too?

Libusb-1.0.20 is dated
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lib...libusb-1.0.20/

Sorry for my long absence, I been travelling.
Libusb has been around since "Moby Dick was a minnow", so just about any libusb1.0 will work with these dongles, as they are not very complicated.

Thanks,
Freddie

Re: New rtlsdr Plugin

So I have everything set up and I can get the plugin to start the auto calibrate function but whenever I click into it I get a popup every minute or so that reads "Cannot Open:". Anyone else experience this? Is it just because I'm currently land locked so there are no AIS targets? (Rasberry pi 3, raspbian)

Re: New rtlsdr Plugin

Did you try running rtl_ais outside O? It should run fine. ''Cannot open'' may be just nothing there in the path.

Re: New rtlsdr Plugin

I have the same problem, on the raspberry pi 2:

I can run rtl_fm outside of opencpn, but when I want to auto-calibrate within the plugin, it tells me "failed to open:" and the nothing. So i guess the plugin does not know where to look for rtl_fm...?

thanks for your help,

mischa

Re: New rtlsdr Plugin

If anybody wants to use this setup on a Mac, I have put together some notes from today's afternoon experiment with rtl_ais at https://github.com/nohal/OpenCPN/wik...R-AIS-on-macOS
The $6 blue dongle from HK is picking up targets from up to 10 miles away using the tiny antenna that came with it laying on my table - seems quite a lot of fun for the money...
