I did. But I have these two others and thought someone might know how to make 'em work. Thanks for the great idea though. Very helpful.
You say is doesn't work all. Does the SDR enumerate when plugged into the computer? If so, is there any sign of RF spectrum or..... It will not work at all. is there a way to make it function?
Normally also copied RTL-SDR dongles work (possibly with lower specs).I did. But I have these two others and thought someone might know how to make 'em work. Thanks for the great idea though. Very helpful.
I doubt it's the v4; the pictures posted of v4 are much different. However, your mention of RTL.SDR smells of a fake unit. Even their page lists that as a fake (photo attached)Wasn't there information about a RTL-SDR v4 that had to use a new receiver chip as the old one was too expensive and would get back to the old chip after a year or so, and required a totally different windows driver for it? Perhaps this fake dongle, that says RTL.SDR instead of RTL-SDR, also require that new driver?

Perhaps you're losing something in translation, however RTL-SDR.com never said the R860 tuner (used in the V3 dongle) was unavailable, they simply said that the price of the R860 has increased enough for them to create another option, which is the V4 dongle that will have a limited run using remaining supplies of the discontinued R828D tuner. The V3 dongle will continue to be manufactured and sold.If the genuine RTL-SDR cannot get hold of the proper receiver chip that are not too expensive
