Driver for "blue" RTL_SDR R820T2 ?

Post by ronhimself » Thu Nov 15, 2018 3:54 pm

NOOB trying to install "blue with dolphin" R820T2. Install procedure seemed to go OK until RTL-SDR Controller shows Device as E4000 (not R820T) and not recognized. Possible device selection window is blank and grayed out. (I must have loaded the wrong driver somehow do you think). Don't know where to get the correct driver (suggestion?) or how to go about sequence of changing.
Any suggestions of how to proceed with my Win 10 64 bit install of SDR#? I need all the help I can get - thanks!

Please follow our install guide at

Nothing against those box type RTL-SDRs as they do work okay...but they do seem to have a decently higher than normal fault rate, so a hardware fault isn't out of the question.
