19690RE: [SDR#] new to sdr and have questions, etc

This may be a not so smart response but the spyverter requires power. Did you plug in a USB power source?

My name is Buford and I am an amateur radio operator, KB8QLG.
But SDR is a new thing to me.
The setup I have is as follows:
Lenove Thinkpad e/w i5 cpu, M540 2.53 Ghz, 4 gbt ram 64 bit operating system.
Win 10 PRO
Radio is Airspy R@ and Spyverter.
With just the Airspy connected to laptop and SDRsharp open and my GAP Titan DX antenna connected I can tune local FM stations and FRS radio transmissions.This seems to be as it should be.
But when I install the Spyverter in line in front of the receiver and again have SDRsharp open I don't seem to be able to get any audio from any signal I tune to. Stations such as WWV 5,10,15,Mhz don't appear when I input those frequencies.
I notice that the receiver does get warm-ish to the touch but the Spyverter does not.
I've gone through most changeable options and don't see asny difference. There is white noise or silence on some signals. I do select AM etc with no change.
Could a new Spyverter be bad?
I'd appreciate some help/advice and I thank you in advance.
