I'm using N1 210 rev 4 usrp radio and I want to use it in Matlab environment.
My problem is the following. If I type "findsdru" in Matlab command line, then I get the following result.
---------- begin libuhd error message output ----------
Device discovery error: input stream error
---------- end libuhd error message output ----------
ans =
Platform: 'N200/N210/USRP2'
IPAddress: '192.168.10.2'
SerialNum: 'E7R26M7UP'
Status: 'Success'
It seems the Matlab finds the usrp device well, but I couldn't figure out why the error message "Device discovery error: input stream error" occurs.
How can I fix this?

The error message is generated from UHD, the hardware driver of USRP device. Although I have not seen this file exactly before, but there are some similar issues, which may occur due to different reasons like graphics driver issues, some unexpected change with default sampling rate etc.
In order to get more details on that, kindly contact the technical support in your region.

Hi,
I had the same problem with my USRP hardware. To fix this UHD error, just update your UHD driver for the USRP hardware. Here I attached the driver link: http://files.ettus.com/binaries/uhd/latest_release/
Steps: - Download the driver from above link for your win 32/64 bit. But, download the latest release VS2015 for your OS. - Open MATLAB and Connect your USRP hardware with PC. - Now install the UHD driver - After installation, close your matlab and remove USRP device. - Now, open matlab and connect USRP device with PC - Finally, run the findsdru in command window and there won't be the error message anymore.
Thanks

I am getting the same issue with my matlab R2021a version and usrp x310 with ubx 160 daughterboards and uhd version Matlab is 3.15.0.0 vendor. How can I fix this?
radio = findsdru
Checking radio connections...

This specific issue in MATLAB R2021a that shows "Device discovery error: resolve: Host not found (non-authoritative), try again later " is not a stoppage issue, you should be able to perform the transmit and receiver operations successfully.
