New version of DRM software

Good news! Fraunhofer have informed me that there will soon be an upgrade to the DRM software. I don't have full details, but I expect an improvement in the decoding & the addition of a CELP decoder. When I have a release date I will post more information. Of course the upgrade is free to all registered key holders.

Very good news!

That is very good news indeed!

Does it mean that the software is also still for sale, inspite what is written on the DRM Software Radio homepage?

Perhaps, a few people are still interested to buy it.

Hi Paul, I spoke to Fraunhofer this week and they confirm the new version will be released & it will include a CELP decoder, but not for 2 months. That means towards the end of July.

One month to go.

Do you know if there will also be an update for WinRadio receivers?

Thanks

Hi James,
do you have any information if we can expect an improvement in decoding with regard to UEP transmissions in particular?

Winradio version, I don't know if this will be upgraded, I hope so though. Improved UEP decoding, I don't think there will be any changes here.

Hi James,

that's a pity, because it seems that currently, neither DRMSWR nor Dream do support UEP properly. The current version of the FAAD2 library used in Dream does not support it and the decoder inside the DRMSWR does not seem to support it either, at least the reception results do not differ significantly, as can be seen in one of Carsten's recent reports.

Older versions of the FAAD2 library used in Dream seemed to support UEP but this support was dropped when an error was corrected in the latest update.

Hi James,
unlike Roland mentioned, of course the FhG decoder does support UEP but the logfiles are recorded in a different way by Dream and FhG software. Here is an example from this evening from Flevo, comparing a version of Dream supporting UEP (but stopped working after 20min) and the DRM SWR. There was not much difference when listening to both decoders. I think they should agree on one method to record the logfiles. Thatīs what I actually wanted to ask (but wrote something different, sorry )

Hi Carsten, no official news from Fraunhofer, but they did release a new version of the professional version about 10 days ago. I think this is a good sign that we can expect something soon. I will ask them for an official comment.
