So another download, and all is well. However, I looked again at the previous download of 1240 I did, and the rtl-usb was not present in the pull down list.
I decided to check further, and found that the RTL-SDR USB had been commented out in the sdr.exe file. It must have been noticed and corrected. The usual airspy commented out was still there as well and expected that, but not the USB.
The first time I downloaded 1240 was 05/09/14 @ 21:00.
