Blank FFT Viewer

I’ve just got a LimeSDR-mini to learn about GSM and DBTV in a practical way, having a STEM background.
Now, I’m trying to view the spectrum of a 433MHz transmitter. I’ve set up the frequency in LimeSuiteGUI software, clicked Calculate and then Tune and lastly opened the FFT Viewer which shows an empty graph.
If I try running the GUI->Chip command, I always get the following error:

WARNING: SetPllFrequency: error configuring phase
ERROR: LML RX phase search FAIL

while in the terminal

 warning [darwin_abort_transfers] aborting all transactions on interface 1 pipe 4

I’m using OSX, is the unit faulty? How can I get it to work?
Thank you

@Zack @IgnasJ could you advise, please.

Hi @Anelito,

Execute LimeQuickTest and post log file here, please.

Here it is

$ LimeQuickTest --no-gui

Apparently all tests are ok, yet there is no signal on the 433MHz band despite using a low-power transmitter next to the LimeSDR mini.

Board looks OK.
What LimeSuiteGUI version do you use? Make sure it is the latest one.

I am using the stable release from GitHub
