I like my SDRPlay it works well, BTW your cursor is on an HD FM station and there is another HD station at 95.700. It looks as there might be another HD FM station at 98.500 with the two subchannels working. I am not 100 % sure.
I have been using my SDRPlay to capture WX pictures from NOAA 15, 18, & 19. The front end filter blocks interference from a APRs at 144.3900, the antenna for the APRS System is only a mile east of me. I can pick up interference on other dongles.
I was checking out the AM broadcast stations last night and I received a ton of them, the front end was very sensitive at those frequencies.
I tried 40 meter side band and the audio was garbled I could not copy a decent signal, have you tried any sideband stations yet?
I don't have an SDRPlay, but some receivers have the I and Q outputs reversed from others. If you know you're using the right mode for the band, try selecting the "swap I and Q" option in your software.
I was able to load the new drives on windows 7 and 8.1. with out any problem.
I have not try to see if the frequency gap was fixed as I have been trying for two weeks to get the Russian weather satellite to display correctly using SDRPlay and SDRsharp and Orbitron. It has been a bear following the instructions on RTL-SDR as there has been updates to the software and the software instructions have not been updated. Also I only get one good pass a night and it hard trying a fix and have to wait a whole day and some times the elevation of the pass is not good enough for a copy. The wheels keep on turning and I keep on grinding out the problem.
