- Dec 18, 2016Very interesting Sean. Have the same Griffin spinner mouse and to have wondered about how to interface it to my SDR-IQ.
Will be following this thread with interest. Thanks for bring it up.

I've been trying to get my Griffin Powermate (it is a small aluminium spinner that imitates mouse actions and is used in video and audio editing, but is much cheaper than dedicated radio or midi controllers) to work with SDR# ever since the early releases without any success.
I can get the Powermate to work OK on pretty much every other program except SDR#. I've tried programming the Powermate with every option possible but it refuses to scroll frequency in SDR#(which is why I have the thing in the first place)
The reason for wanting to use it is so I can have something like a VFO tuning knob rather than having to use the mouse wheel (or the up/down scrolling arrows). You can program the Powermate to emulate left/right/up/down scrolling or to emulate cursor left/right/up/down, which works perfectly in SDR Console (for instance), but I don't need it in that as it supports midi and I use a twin wheel DJ controller as my 'VFO knob'.
SDR# is the one program I want to use it with and it would add a much improved method of control.
I wonder if anyone has used a Powermate successfully with SDR# or has any ideas how to get it working.
