The existing SDRplay RPi image needs updating to support the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, which we will do shortly. However, if you have another Raspberry Pi 3 (not B+) you can make the changes required for it to boot on the B+...
1. Boot the SDRplay SD-card in the non B+ device as normal.
2. Open Terminal Window
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
This will make the SD card bootable on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+
Another thing I noticed during testing was the power consumption for the B+ is higher than previous models so make sure you have a good PSU. I tried a few 2A supplies that didn't work, but a good 2.5A power supply worked fine.
We'll make an announcement as soon as we've got the image updated for the RPi 3B+
Note: for those into different SBC devices, you might want to try out the Odroid-C2 as with full Gigabit Ethernet support - I could get 10 MHz bandwidth remotely using SoapyRemote to my PC pretty easily. Low CPU load as well. It does need some forced air cooling in my opinion
We will publish news items here and other useful information
