Hi Cap,

Did you compile it per the SourceForge.net Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) guide and using the repositories as shown on that page?

I'm having a problem in finding the "dream package".

Thanks,

-Zyg-

I complied from source using svn:
cd /usr/src/
svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/drm/code/dream
(sudo apt-get install svn) if you don't have subversion installed.
cd dream

Then install the build tools/libraries and then compile faad, follow these instructions and you should be good: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik..._based_distros

I used the dynamic FAAD library though and had to link libfaad2_drm.so from /usr/local/lib to /usr/lib/ (otherwise you get [no codec] showing in dream, i.e. no decode)
Any probs give me a shout.

Hi Cap,

I have "checked out" Dream from subversion. I have compiled libfaad_drm.so but I'm stuck on what to do next.

when I try to do the following:

cd dream
qmake

I get a no audio interface found...

Any advice?

Thanks,

-Zyg-

Dream v2.2 (svn 878)

With help from Cap, the latest Dream version 2.2 svn878 was successfully compiled.

The screen picture (receiving Voice of Nigeria) has lost some resolution as I had to reduce the image size for it to be attached here.

Dream Compile

Glad to have helped out Zyg, cheers.

Been without a phone line (or internet) for a week now, came down in a storm (100mph+ winds), only got it reconnected today.

Hi Cap,

Hopefully you did not have any other problems due to the storm?

I should have mentioned the very nice Linux program that you wrote to control the Ten-Tec RX320. It easily connects wiith the DReaM software.

I certainly recommend it.

If anyone is interested the necessary file can be downloaded from the following Yahoo group:

Although not DRM, I do use DReaM for listening to AM shortwave.

The attached is the spectrum from this evening's transmission at 0218 UTC from WBCQ 5110 kHz that transmits with CSSB (carrier with only one sideband). I was using DReaM Windows Version 1.17.

The music sounds great!

I needed help in this regard. i use a pre-compiled version like dream2_1
but i am unable to manage the audio gain setting anywhere. while SD radio software of L2PHD has gain adjustment and AGC, the dream doesn't appear to have such
Any suggestions or a help in an y better compiled package please.

I don't think Dream has an audio gain setting (AFAIK).
I have not found an AF gain setting anywhere in any of the Dream binaries I have complied, I adjust AF directly on the OS (Linux).

Hi Sarma,

I use the sound card volume controls to adjust the input level and audio output.

For AGC you can use the Hamlib software controls to preset the value for a number of receivers. For analog reception you can also adjust the AGC and noise suppression from the AM window - but that just affects the signal after the sound card and does not control the actual receiver.

Thanks.
Perhaps i need to get old type motherboard Intel D945GCNL.
after it crashed with few pins faulty on socket 775,
i had bought Zebronics G41-G3 and this mobo had an inferior sound chip ALC662 and the stereo slider is greyed out here. Also it is rather trouble some to adjust the I_Q skew adjustment.
a used creative 5.1 sound card SB0680 was tired , and it is slightly better
.
perhaps i shall improve my hardware and get
back
Initially i understand that the signal volume , you are adjusting using sound card controls.
thanks

Apparently, Julian is beginning work on adding the xHE-AAC codec to DReaM if I'm reading changes to the source code correctly ...
