Yes I tried it.
Yes it works.

I think the format was complex signed 16 bit integer   (complex short)
(every sample is one signed 16 bit I value and one 16 bit signed Q value)

You can make these samples with

you can connect a gnuradio script to the drm receiver app with a pipe (use 
mkfifo for that)


mkfifo my_drm_fifo

./usrp_receive_drm_samples_to_file.py --output-filename=my_drm_fifo 

in another console
./drm --fileio my_drm_fifo

You can also search the gnuradio mailinglist for more info
