For the FCDPP (Funcube dongle pro plus)---This morning I looked closely at the baseline noise level in Foxtelem. It was quite high, around -50 or so. Since I can't adjust LNA or Mixer (both forced ON in Foxtelem), I went to the Recording Devices Control panel, and adjusted the audio level there---from about 25 (used in all my other SDR programs)---down to 4, so my baseline is about -75. That seems to have helped a good bit, and even unattended on the first pass tonight I see it grabbed 35 or so frames. That's good, since this morning it got ONE.
Anyhow, those of you running FCDPP might check that out...
