Hi Chris,
Thanks for the info. What would the symptoms of a spyverter failure be ? I tested it with a shortwave loop antenna and it picks up the local AM stations fine with sdrsharp. But some bands the spectrum display a series of evenly spaced spikes that are not AM signals. Could this be due to damage ?
I posted the same question to the airspy contact address but have got no response. I have found the airspy folks to be less than helpful for other queries.

It it quite possible that you damaged it. You should contact the airspy folks to be sure though - http://airspy.com/contact/

I recently purchased the airspy/spyverter combo. The spyverter did not have any markings indicating antenna input and output. Assuming that the lettering on the top of the two devices lined up I initially wrongly connected the antenna input of spyverter to the input of the airspy and ran sdrsharp with the bias supply enabled. Eventually after much web surfing I was able to find a picture indicating the correct connection and I followed that.
Does anybody know  if the bias supply from the airspy could have damaged the spyverter ? Also any pointers to a forum that might have the answer would be appreciated.
Thanks for any help,

GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
