      Steve wait....
      Now that you've got the drivers installed you need to try the RXTX. :-)
      Why don't you offer your receiver to a local club member that hasn't experienced SDR- you know how to set it up now.

      Finally fixed.
      I plugged the Ensemble RX into the XYL's laptop running xp and it immediately popped up with the correct message and accepted the driver. This told me the thing is working. I then crawled behind my desktop and unhooked all USB attached gear, plugged in the RX and it too worked. I had read about trying this but was reluctant. I've been running it with HDSDR/CFGSDR and it works.
      Ok...Having crossed that bridge I'm going to pass this along to someone else.
      Ensemble RX II and Km5H case $85 for both. PayPal.

      Thanks to all who offered suggestions.
      I received plenty of hate mail too!
