My LimeSDR-Mini seemed to be working fine on arrival and I was happy with it but I’ve since seen increasing evidence of something being wrong. First, when I managed to get a console program working to call the LimeSuite API, I saw ‘failed to lock’ every time in the output blurb. As things seemed to work, I ignored it. Now, at least one half of the LimeQuickTest loopback test is failing every time, and (w/o any change of PC, USB port, software or (roof-top) antenna) there’s weird (BPSK like!) interference around 100MHz which is ruining BFM reception. None of my RTL SDRs do this with everything else the same, and my Lime didn’t used to do it.
(I know the signal strength is high but the interference is there even w/o an antenna connected, and with all gains set to minimum.)
Anybody seen this/got a fix? Or has my Lime gone sick?
