    Hi, i running latest release of OBS on Win7, 32 bit OS and i5 desktop PC.

    Was trying to install these DLL's, without success.

    There is always error report at OBS startup: "avcodec-58.dll is either not designed to run in Windows or it contains an error..."

    Have tried various FFMPEG packages with same result:




    Any suggestions?

    What version of OBS are you running with these dll's? On 32 or 64 bit Wins?

    DD4YR Robert, streaming from SF8008 works well. Connect your Octagon to the LAN, go in to MAIN MENU, then select INFORMATION, and finally NETWORK. Write down its IP address.

    Now there are two ways to start watching SF8008 stream:

    1. - using web browser open/call that IP address and select LAST SCANNED, click on desired station, 3 icons will pop-up in front of the call sing. Chose 2nd (middle) icon (TV monitor) and save it on to PCs HD. File name will be something like "SV8RV.m3u8". Now open it, VLC will start playing automatically.

    2. - or copy streaming address directly in to VLC.,

    Marcel, thanks for a nice software!

    Operates well - no crashes here.

    It would be very useful if you can add a 5 digit LO frq. entry option (00000 to 11000 MHz). Simple subtract LO frq. entry from reception frq. entry to get actual SDR (IF) frq. Both entries must be memorized in the system to be picked at next program startup.

    We use various modified LNB's and at this moment need to calculate actual IF frq. manually for each frq. change.

    Thanks, keep good work on ...

    Johannes, it can be done with 2 soldering irons heating both sides at same time. Just take your time until xtal moves. After, cool the pcb down ...

    Picture below of an Opticum LSP-02G, xtal was removed that way. Note: these LNBs goes down only to 24.183 MHz @ room temperature. At lower ref. frq. PLL became completely unstable - strong wobbling. One should always check its operation with spectrum analyser.


    Can you give me some hints for removing the xtal ?
