Stream Deck Plus, Again

Postby iu4jnr » Sat Jul 08, 2023 8:27 pm

Hi all, this is Max IU4JNR.
In few days I should receive a pre-loved ANAN7000DLE MK2. I'm not new to SDR, I own a SUNSDR2DX and 2pro and I just sold a Flex6400. I also owned a HL2 and a Hamlab 160-10 based on Red Pitaya.

I try to figure out what is the best solution to exploit my Stream Deck Plus to make it works wih Thetis and it seems there are a couple of solutions. However, what i found in the community forum are "old" discussions, dated nov 22.
Just as a try, I made few keys assignment using the "hotkey switch" in the SD+ software. Although they works, the mouse should stay focused on Thetis to be effective. Having multi-monitor setup this is not going to work.
So my questions are: are there any news on interfacing SD+ ? Any SW like FRstack for Flex? what is the most used/easy solution which keep the focus on Thetis whatever the mouse pointer is?
Thanks in advance
Max IU4JNR

Any luck? I have a stream deck that used with my Flex6500. It would be nice to use it once again.

I'm not a Stream Deck owner, but I believe it is as easy as using a set of .bat files that are executed on Stream Deck button presses to send CAT commands to Thetis.

If I were doing this, I'd install some version of netcat for Windows--I like ncat which is part of the nmap suite. Then you can issue commands like:

echo zzfa00018135100; | ncat -C 127.0.0.1 13013 --send-only

In that example zzfa is the CAT command, 127.0.0.1 is the localhost address, and 13013 is the TCP/IP CAT server port in Thetis. -C adds a CRLF, --send-only closes the connection immediately after sending.
