Looks like an excellent solution for anyone who has proximity issues with nearby AM or FM broadcast stations. As far as I can see the core of the radio is basically the same as the RSP1 so it's nice that they are offering both options to potential buyers. Very nice!

Well, can I feel smug, or only partially smug.

I ordered the SDRthing from HRO, $120 and free shipping. As its only receive; Can I only be 1/2 smug, or can I be fully smug? And do I have to stand by until I get it in the mail, or can I start my smugishness now?  Anyway, I can still look down on the unwashed.

KLC   Half smug better than no smug...

Being able to look down on the unwashed is worth at least the price you paid...

I have a problem with my sdrplay...I have the software loaded,  I plug the black box in, but the software doesn't see the radio...all I get is noise....It is hard to be smug.....Steve

It's that TMC transmitter.   The SDRPLAY saw that thing and got scared as all get out!

Seriously,  you sounded great here yesterday in the roundtable..  Nice to hear you in Washington,  Brandon in Louisiana,  the boys in Arizona and even Montana was in there.

40 looks to be good this winter.   Very Smuggy.

Steve, can you confirm that the SDRplay is seen by Windows in Device Manager? I had an issue with the USB cable that I got from HRO when I bought my SDRplay. I learned that not all USB cables are compatible and what they were selling definitely fell into that category. I grabbed another USB cable that was lying around and as soon as I hooked it up the Mirics API driver loaded immediately, the rig initialized, and the software saw the rig every time from that point on.

Rob, I would like to express my thanks to you for sharing all your knowledge and information regarding the SDR platform, it is very helpful to all of us.  I especially appreciate the information you provided to help us use the FIFI SDR with the current software offerings.  I know it is a lot of work to document and share the details, Thanks and best regards!

I recently bought a used SDRplay 2 on eBay, and I'm somewhat disappointed with it compared with my Afedri. 

I'm not a huge fan of the SDRUno, and its weird frequency entry method (I don't have a mouse wheel on my laptop).  Also it overloads much easier than the Afedri, and the USB2.0 in my cheapo laptop is too slow for very wide frequency spans.  Still, for the $140 bux I paid, I can't complain to loudly - it covers up to 2 gig, (Afredri only goes to 30 MHz).  FM radio sounds fantastic.

Wish SDRUno did sync AM ISB (ie USB in right audio channel, LSB in left) like CuteSDR.

Did you try it with HDSDR or SDRConsole. These two apps are better than SDRUno in most respects.

Here is a sneak peek at the soon to be released v1.2 of SDRuno. Looks like this will be a nice version with a number of improvements in the interface:

In case you did not see the news, the new SDRuno version 1.2 was released yesterday. The full release notes and the download link for this update can be found here:

http://www.sdrplay.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2579

There are fixes, changes, and new functions in this version. It's a major release and worth it to upgrade. It seems to work beautifully here!
