with the updated version. If I set the dwell time to anything less than 16ms it crashes with the following error .
rtlsdr_demod_write_reg failed with -9
r82xx_write: i2c wr failed=-9 reg=06 len=1
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I'm trying to scan a range from 16mhz to 32mhz with an upconverter attached. *trying to scan for solar activity and jovian radio burst so I'm not worried about it missing anything on one frequency. I'm interested in seeing the overall spectrum with sweeps as fast as possible. The faster the better! =)

Any idea what might be causing it to crash?
My machine specs are..
Release 12.04 (precise) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.8.0-35-generic
Memory: 4 gig
Intel Core I5 2520m 2.50ghz X4
300 gig hd with 225 free.
Would it help if I set up a second machine and let it handle the rtlsdr and send the data via rtl_tcp?
Take some processing load off the scanner machine itself?
