Thanks for the info on the hardware and ham lib. I defiantly want to use my ICOM R7000 with the USRP using the radio's 10.7 IF for input. So serial would be the way to go, or a serial-usb adapter as you stated.
Aftern you mentioned about seeking UHD help on their forum, another response said to do a clean fresh reinstall of Ubuntu 12.05 LTS and start from scratch with the Pybombs. So this option would not fix the problem?
Would this UHD issue in Pybombs affect everyone installing for the first time? or over an existing version?
thanks as always,

USRP and HackRF take tuning commands over the same channel as the data flow, USB (and/or ethernet, for some USRP models). Other receivers such as those controlled by hamlib and that are equipped with an RS-232 interface would of course require serial support. Don't overlook the availability of the USB/serial dongles - but make sure they have they're at least +/- 9-12V - some may be +/-5V only which is not according to spec...
