      Happy new year John,
      load dttsp sd-core which is the processing part between the audio I & Q inputs and sdr-shell.
      Also you will need qjackctl so you can see the sound card the sdr-core and the sound outputs.
      There are plenty of short scripts around to sart the core and shell and control the softrock frequency
      via USB,

      Good luck

        It may be worth trying again as they could have had servers offline for maintenance.
