Yes. I am having good results with the current drivers (1.95.2) and the CubicSDR v0.20 rc4 downloaded from the CubicSDR git repository. With an SDRPlay attached, running CubicSDR should show you the SDR Devices dialog box where SDRPlay RSP should appear in the Local section. Click Start and you are off and running.

I bought an SDRplay and was able to run it with CubicSDR. So far so good; it works fine with CubicSDR. The only problem I have so far is that I can't receive commercial AM broadcasts, which in the U.S. are around 500 - 1600 KHz, more or less. For all I know this could be due to a bad antenna-- for the time being I'm just using a long wire for MF and HF that I've cobbled together, and a two-meter ham antenna for VHF/UHF.

I became ambitious and installed Mac Ports then GNURadio. Gqrx will display but it crashes. I didn't patch the source as I thought the patches had been applied already. Maybe this is the problem-- do I still need to patch gr-osmosdr according to darin's post?

thanks,

ML

Okay, I was able to patch the gr-osmosdr source then build it and gqrx. Gqrx opens but at this point I'm not getting any audio. Can someone tell me the proper parameters for Gqrx's "Configure I/O Devices" window?

thanks,

ML

The users you say you have using the mac, what software are they running GQRX? or something else?

I had it working. Not using it anymore since CubicSDR matured.
