I'll throw out yet another thing, something I have seen more with
Windows 10 systems, but could also affect the older Windows
versions. Have you tried listening to anything with just HDSDR?
With some Windows updates, the driver needed to use the dongle
as a general-coverage SDR receiver gets overwritten by these
updates, and you have to rerun the Zadig utility to reinstall
the proper (non-Microsoft) driver to resume using the dongle
as a general-coverage receiver. With the most recent updates
this week, I will check that with my Windows 10 tablets this
weekend, to see if any of them need that driver reinstalled.
