Wish there was better *nix/Mac OS X software to drive it.  I do note that GQRX lists the SDRPlay as supportive hardware, so that's a start, but GQRX is a bit less beefy than what I'd like.....

Yeah, works like a dream, have two of them now, and now there is No Gap, full coverage, run it on a pc here, but waiting on the mac stuff too, perhaps soon. I tried it with GQRX via macports, but got no audio...still working on it, but on a PC it's great for the price....
