@andrewback - Andrew,
As promised, I did some testing with the Lime-Mini last night on my Windows 10 PC (Dell 9010 i5, 8GB RAM) and found some interesting results that I want to share here…keep reading…
Here’s what happened when I ran the Lime-Mini with the FTDI driver on SDRConsole V3.0 (latest revision) - notice the weird issue with sampling, makes all the voices seem like a record player on slow speed (I know I’m showing my age here… ):
Then I did a wideband FM receive with GQRX and it seemed real good, but I found that I could not use the LimeSDR driver, I had to apply a trick I learned from GNU Radio Companion and use the Ettus USRP driver that was also pointing to the Lime-Mini to play it in GQRX - here is the result:
Then I tried narrowband FM with GQRX with the same settings and had the following results:
So from my analysis of it, It’s possible to get the Lime-Mini running in Windows with GQRX using the USRP driver or driver arguments, but there is definitely something strange about the sampling for SDRConsole. I could not get SDRAngel to work and I know that’s because it doesn’t support the FTDI driver yet that I’m aware of - I will check with Edouard on that and report back…But this is what I have found thus far…Stay tuned for more as I have it…

P.S. - The Lime-Mini RULES in Linux - No issues with it at all transmit and receive running it on Artful (Ubuntu 17.10).
