I can report that everything is working incredibly well.

Many thanks to everyone that tried to help, but it must be said that Nay is a genius!

I'm going to suck it into a memory stick, keep it as a backup.

I'm using one of the RTL-SDR jobs with the metal case and the direct sampling conversion. I've only played with it for about an hour but running it through my Watson active antenna I'm blown away by its HF performance. Next I'll be sorting a twig for some higher freqs and a play with Nays UHF freqs and settings ;)

Just a quick update while I'm on my lunch break ;)

Had several hours worth of play back to back with my DX394B. The receive is at least as sensitive, probably more so, with the added advantage that SDR# has so many options for filters, juggling bandwidth etc, so it's possible to block out most of what you don't want to hear.

Ditto monitoring PSK31 on 40M.

It's early days, and the options for playing are immense so doubtless I'll figure a lot more out over coming weeks, but I'm extremely happy indeed with the HF performance. It's the RTL-SDR branded T2 dongle in the aluminium case with the direct sampling built in, so set SDR# to direct sampling Q branch and you're away. As a budget entry into SDR to learn the ropes I can't recommend it enough. Worth £20 of anyones cash. Any nay say that says they're no good is a fool - it works superbly, and the value for 20 snifters is.quite frankly, unbelievable.

I agree I bought the kit but knackered it trying to solder the USB connector on so I have just ordered a ready built one for £25 in the meantime I will continue using the dongle the other kit came with.

Glad you got on OK with that SDR# I uploaded for you.
