Re: What is simplest software that will direct sample with an appropriate sample frequency?

I have not got any idea of what you are trying to do but the fundamental fact is that you will not sample at much more than 2MHz from a RTL.
More than that requires a different SDR. Up to 30MHz and beyond is available but not quite so cheaply.

Re: Hard Question: Is it worth all the headaches?

If your radio failed then ask for an exchange. SDR has been around for a long time but it hardly ever is really easy. Of course a seller will say it's easy. To be fair perhaps they have forgotten the hours they spent in the beginning. The reason is that you are expected to supply a computer and conf...

Re: Newbie Question: Computer System Requirements

You only need the files, maybe on a USB stick. The computer does not need to be connected to the internet to run a SDR.

"HD Radio" rtl-sdr gives some results.

Re: RTL-SDR Device Not Found by SDR# or HDSDR (Intermittent)

Could be a USB problem.
Try other ports or even a hub.
Or maybe another USB device is conflicting. Experiment.

Re: Sdr

The SDR interface is a computer so you'd better learn:-)
What software? Presumably you have selected the correct output.
Then it's a matter of looking at the system sound settings (Windows?).
