Thanks for the program and I'm looking forward to trying it out. Could I get your help to solve an issue with getting the dongle recognized and a first scan done?

I'm running Windows 7 and using a generic DVB-T+DAB+FM dongle. I've installed the scanner and support files, and have run and got the all clear (no missing libraries). When I run rtl_test.exe, the program finds my "Generic RTL2832U" dongle but then I get a *lot* of errors of the following type:
rtlsdr_write_reg failed with -2
rtlsdr_demod_write_reg failed with -2
rtlsdr_demod_read_reg failed with -2
I see an output line "Resetting the device...", then more errors of the type above, then "No supported device found" and a few more errors of the type above.

When running the main program, all scans fail with an error "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it". Under Preferences, the device present is listed as "localhost1234" with Tuner "unknown".

Any ideas what's causing the errors, and how I could get my system to scan?
