Ideally you enumerate through available devices and select one to work  
with (example attached). Then you pass it's device string to the  
source/sink and continue from there as usual. You can check for something  
like dev.count("rtl") || dev.count("rtl_tcp") and dev.count("hackrf") to  
distinguish between devices. In our applications we also provide a command  
line switch like

         parser.add_option("-a", "--args", type="string", default="",
                           help="Device args, [default=%default]")

to select a specific device via CLI and to be able to change it's default  
parameters: -a "hackrf,buffers=128".

Best regards,
