I do not know much about the aor la-400 indoor loop antenna other than I see it needs a power supply so you might like to check that the power feed its OK.

I have DX-R8E (which I'm writing a free program for called DriveR8 and hope to get the first release out this month) and I find this receiver to be very well shielded. With no aerial or piece of wire in contact with the antenna socket then it picks up nothing. However put even a few inches of wire into the socket and all is fine. You might like to tray just a simple wire antenna to check that the receiver is working correctly.
