December 7 2020 – QT-dab 3.7 Final

Final QT-dab 3.7 has been released. What’s new?

SNR error has been fixed. EPG is implemented but still experimental.
Scanning has been improved with the option to make several skiplists.
Mind you: after installing check your device setting. All MUXes were set wrong on my pc. LNA was set to 4 instead of previous 1 on ALL muxes. I had to change the settings for each mux.
Always good to download and check the manual 😀

December 1 2020 – QT-dab 3.7 Pre

Today Jan Van Katwijk released QT-dab 3.7 Pre. Download it here.

What’s new?
Qt-DAB 3.7 brings – apart from a number of minor changes – two new items
a. an SNR viewer, a widget can be selected that will show the development of the SNR over time. If configured, the output can be stored in afile and there is – for Linux – a small application that will show the content of the file
b. a skipTable for the scanner. In many cases it is known beforehand that a channel does not contain a DAB signal. In the skipTable (made visible with the configurtion widget) it can be indicated which channels can be skipped while scanning.

As usual, an AppImage and a Windows installer is available for both qt-dab and dabMini are here available.
The documentation is updated and the up-to-date users guide can be found in the docs section in the source tree.

A single scan produces a results file with all the ensemble data in full.
Continous scans produce ‘summary’ files like this:
7A Zuid NL ; ensembleId 8017; channel 7A; frequency 188928; nr services 13; time 2020-dec-03 16:02; transmitters (7+2); SNR 8;
