SDRuno question...
« on: January 12, 2022, 1831 UTC »
In SDRuno (1.41.1), does anyone know how to get the time that scrolls down with the left side of the waterfall (if you enable it) to read in 24 hour format? Something obvious I'm missing (highly probable)?

Well, that is interesting. That is a feature that I did not even know existed and I have been using SDRuno for over 2 years now. It is a feature that I use on the KiwiSDRs so, you have my attention. If it follows SDRuno's main clock setting then:

Main Panel -> Settings -> Misc -> "Show UTC Time".

It's on page 15 of the manual. I cannot confirm at this time as I have already rolled over 00:00 UTC.

Yeah, cool, right? 
You can enable it and set the interval (1-1800) in the upper right of the MAIN SP settings window.
I just want it to show in 24 hour format and not AM/PM.
Oh well. I'll keep digging.

To the best of my knowledge mine is working in UTC. Look at page 15 of the user manual for how to set the clock to UTC. The manual is copied over during the install and there is a link to it in the Windows Start -> All Program -> SDRplay menu.

The setting is in the MAIN panel (not MAIN SP). MAIN is the one that has the Start / Stop button. Sorry for the confusion on where to find it. SDRplay should really rename some of those panels. The names can be confusing.

Ah-ha!
To be clear, I knew how to turn on the "Show UTC" setting. The problem was I had Windows set for AM/PM. All sorted out now. Thanks for the push, SIGINT.  :)

Hi Erik,

Good to hear that you figured it out. Checking Window's settings was going to be my next suggestion.

This is interesting because the software changelog for SDRuno version 1.22 states that UTC time fixed to 24 hour format. That would lead you to believe that once you select the UTC option that the clock display should display in 24 hour mode.

Reference in the SDRuno Cookbook does state Shows time in UTC. To show time in 24hr format, your PC System time must be set to 24hr also.
