I’m trying out a RTL-SDR V3 with a Uputronics filtered LNA which can be powered by BiasT, which the V3 dongle can provide.
However, I am running into a problem switching the BiasT on, as Dump1090-FA/Piaware have grabbed the dongle already and causes the error ‘usb_claim_interface error -6’ when I run the code to turn on the BiasT.
What I really need is to be able to set the BiasT first, then run Dump1090-FA/Piaware etc as normal.
Any of you coding Gurus able to help? I’m sure it’s not too difficult, but beyond my lowly Linux experience
Running Piaware 3.50 and FR24 add on programs with Raspbian OS.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
