Hi John,
If you are on Windows, please try the following:


Under “Windows specific notes”.

You can also run the following from MATLAB command windows to test your radio’s connection to the host computer:

Hi John,

I do not have experience with interfacing with the hardware from MATLAB but for that error you need to increase the amount of read and write buffers on your OS.

I am assuming you are running Linux, if now then you need to find out how this is done in Windows.

On Linux (Ubuntu):
Edit the file /etc/sysctl.conf
Add something in the line of the following:
Then restart the computer

Just check what is acceptable for your system, that is what I have set on mine. Perhaps make it 2752000 as suggested by the error.

    Dear all,

        when we  connect to the B210 with matlab,  the following errors often happened.

Could not execute UHD driver command in 'receiveData_c':
Did not receive expected number of samples in a burst reception.
This is likely due to overflow within the burst.
Use 'sysctl' to update the OS socket buffer size.
Expected: 2752000
Found : 94120

I did't know wether these errors is related  to the transmission of the usb3.0 speed.
thank you for your help
best regards
