If you have a RSP1 have you blacklisted the kernel drivers?

If you type...

lsmod | grep msi

and you see any output then you need to blacklist the drivers as per instructions found earlier in this thread.

If not, can you post what you are seeing from...

SoapySDRUtil --info

SoapySDRUtil --find=sdrplay

ls -l /usr/local/lib/libmir*

Best regards,

Thanks for the quick reply. All working fine now.

I did the following:
First, did this from the terminal:

karl@HP-Compaq-6200-Pro-1 ~ $ lsmod | grep msi
msi001 16384 1
msi2500 32768 0
v4l2_common 16384 2 msi001,msi2500
videobuf2_vmalloc 16384 1 msi2500
videobuf2_v4l2 24576 1 msi2500
videobuf2_core 40960 2 msi2500,videobuf2_v4l2
videodev 172032 5 v4l2_common,msi001,msi2500,videobuf2_core,videobuf2_v4l2
karl@HP-Compaq-6200-Pro-1 ~ $

So opened editor and edited /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and added this at the end:

# to allow SDRplay to be recognized and used with CubicSDR
blacklist msi001
blacklist msi2500

Then rebooted and the RSP1 was found immediately. Pretty simple fix. Thanks for the help.
