Hi,
I've followed the steps in http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr
All built OK, I opened up GRC clicked on RTLSDR in sources,
but all I get is something flashing up on screen, looks like a block
of text on a yellow background, but it seen to be flashing and
scrolling and near impossible for me to read.
rtl_test -t shows
Found 1 device(s):
  0:  Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001

Using device 0: Generic RTL2832U OEM
Found Rafael Micro R820T tuner
Supported gain values (29): 0.0 0.9 1.4 2.7 3.7 7.7 8.7 12.5 14.4 15.7 16.6 19.7 20.7 22.9 25.4 28.0 29.7 32.8 33.8 36.4 37.2 38.6 40.2 42.1 43.4 43.9 44.5 48.0 49.6 
Sampling at 2048000 S/s.
No E4000 tuner found, aborting.
What do I need to do now to get a working srd display, ie spectrum and
waterfall display, or point me in the direction of the idiot guide
please
TIA
