Sorry I do have something else to post here, going back a three years, there was a post about using a Hackrf to generate TV pictures by a person named Phil
https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=141810

Well guess who has one sat doing nothing.

The software is still being worked on and I just downloaded and tried it out on my Linux PC, it is working OK and can play media files to my Sony 9-90UB on a 405 line standard. looks like it supports quite a few standards.

Hi!

Many thanks to all who responded to my post, and I'm going to build a Hedgehog, and there'll be three additional spare PCBs available for Members when I get mine!

If you don't have administrator access then you may not be able to change the registry settings that the modeline settings require.

Try a simple registry change to see if you have permission.

Hello Peter, yes I have sudo access, I have a few cards to play with, the one I have back in now is my NVS510 which is 4 ports mini display port. I have another card which is a AMD HD8350, this has a DMS-59 socket on the back but I was missing the adaptor to give me two VGA ports so one is on it's way of Ebay for the pricey sum of 3.50, I may have better luck with this. But I was very surprised with the Hackrf software and what it can do. I have a HH2 or order as well.
