Mac support? 31 Oct 2015 14:42 #1

Any plans to support Mac? I see you support Windows & Linux, so I thought perhaps you use Qt? I'm a developer, and one on the open source apps I contribute to uses Qt for support across platforms.

Baring direct support, any plans for opening the app to outside developers? Open Source or otherwise?

Thanks.

Yes, we using QT and our source code is crossflatformed. We have plans about MAC support. I think next year will be released MAC version of the ExpertSDR2 software. Our software is closed - source code is not available.

Hi all,

I just received my SunSDR2 and wanted to ask when MacOSX softare will be available. I managed to get Windows version of ExpertSDR to work with Wine, but some features do not work like the cross-hair VFO tuning with the mouse (showing only a hand) and the CPU% shows meaningless vlaues (e.g. -44000%). The SunSDR2 with a MacBook would be the perfect portable SDR station.
I tried to run the Linux-Version inside a VM but that's not working.

Hi, András.
We planned to begin to work on the Mac support in the beginning of the next year, but recently we've had several requests for it, so we decided to try to prepare an intermediate version for Mac.
We cannot promise that we'll be able to make it, but we'll try.

I'd like to encourage EE to develop a MacOS version of ExpertSDR sooner than later too!

I just bought a SunSDR QRP radio. Everything I've read about it is great and I'm anxious to get it on the air. Only problem is I don't use Windows... I've have tried all week to configure my VMWare correctly so Windows 10 will work on my MAC Mini with no luck. I've gotten great support from Yuri at NSI Communications but we haven't been able to make it work.

I really want to use this radio, but unless a native MacOS ExpertSDR app is going to be available real soon I'll have no choice but to reluctantly return this radio... and I don't really want to do that.

Hi, Bruce.
We've reevaluated situation with MacOS version of the ExpertSDR2 and decided start porting right after the release of the ExpertSDR2 1.2 final, in late June. The reason behind it is to port a stable and well-tested version of the SW, leaving aside all possible bugs and errors.
So, with a good amount of certainty, we can say that ExpertSDR2 for MacOS will be released in late July.

Hi Bruce,

I run the Windows version of 1.2 alpha with CrossOver on my MacMini, MacBook and under Linux on another notebook (beside the native Linux version). It works pretty ok, with small strange details as CPU time is showing values above 10000%. RX1 only is no problem, RX1/RX2 the same time works most of the time depending on system load. RX1/RX2 and BS brings CrossOver to the limits. But I use e.g. sample rate 312500, so it suerly can be improved by setting other options. There is a trial version of CrossOver, so you may check that.
But anyway, I'm waiting fot the natice version, too ;)

Hi Andras,

Thank you for your note.

Thanks for the pointer to Crossover. I'm not familiar with it but will check it out.
