The Silence Detector app can be a useful tool for achieving your goals in the art gallery installation, but it may require some additional setup and customization to achieve the specific functionality you desire.

P132, P164, P232(U) and P332 RDS Encoders / Re: P164 IP assignment

I will do that.  Sorry I have not had a chance yet to revisit this.  I would like to use the device, once configured, without using the MagicRDS software, with IP packets direct from the automation system (or XML export?), as the streaming/RDS PCs are allowed to auto-update, then get stuck on a Windows boot to set up some stupid Microsoft thing that I don't care about.  So I am likely to generate... numerous additional posts requesting further guidance.

I appreciate greatly the support and will report my findings upon circling back to the P164!  Thanks Jan!

Thank you! Updated ST to the latest version and it seems to work now. Thanks again.
Bug Reports / Re: RT+ with Stereo Tool

Thanks for your post which makes it completely clear.

The reason for such behaviour is that there's a second RT+ encoder running in the ST. This RT+ encoder sends blank data. On the receiver side that results in periodical switching between correct RT+ from the Magic RDS and blank RT+ from the ST.

You need to reset the ST or disable its internal RT+ module.

The Magic RDS periodically sends only

that means:
ODA AID group 3A assigning group type 11A to the RT+
and RT+ data in the group 11A.

The UECP buffer mode for such data is "flush and forget", the Magic RDS does not set any permanent transmission for such data, so even changing the Magic RDS settings in the RT+ extension cannot result in such behaviour.

Thnx for your feedback. Before we were using Magic RDS 3.8 with ASCII mode and RT+ worked, but with new version I cannot even get radiotext through lite ASCII, so that is why we are using Generic UECP. Also We have enabled RT+ Encode in Software Extensions - 11A. Even if I try with others it seems that it makes no difference.

Anyway, sending communication monitor data and recording from RDS Spy.

UECP has no explicit support for the RT+ so you either need a RDS encoder with X-Command support or enable the RT+ UECP extension, which is a PC software-based RT+ encoder.

The RT+ UECP extension works correctly with encoders which comply with UECP specification.

To see what's wrong, I would need a sample record from the RDS Spy (at least 1 minute) and a sample listing from the Magic RDS - Overview - Communication Monitor.
Bug Reports / RT+ with Stereo Tool
« Last post by davidbiz on April 06, 2024, 12:38:39 am »

I just bought 2 instances of Magic RDS 4 to use it on FM, but I cannot get RT+ right. We have connection through TCP/IP and UECP to Stereo Tool 10.21 standalone app. Radiotext goes through, but if I want to enable RT+ I must enable software extension, but then RT+ keeps appearing and dissappearing. RT+ is active only for second or two. I tried much everything (different groups, sequence in ST).

Can you help please?

I am looking at this software to use with the internal RDS encoder in the Nautel VS2.5.  Have you had any success with the NVLT yet?

Thanks Jan,

I have been experimenting and it does work with ASCII Lite and UECP but I haven't figured it out enough to be confident yet.

Silence Detector / Re: Ubuntu and WINE
« Last post by sweatsuitaggressive on April 02, 2024, 03:14:50 am »
When using the Silence Detector application on Ubuntu OS through WINE, you generally don't need to install Windows drivers for your sound card within WINE. WINE (Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a compatibility layer that allows you to run Windows applications on Unix-like operating systems such as Ubuntu without requiring a full Windows installation.
WINE translates Windows API calls into native Linux calls, including calls related to audio input and output. This means that Silence Detector should be able to use the audio drivers installed on your Ubuntu OS without the need for additional Windows drivers.
