Does OV damages KiwiSDR? [no, unless "nearby" transmitter e.g. ham]

edited December 2019 in Problems Now Fixed
Hello, I recently setup up a KiwiSDR at home, but I live in Montevideo city and there are several MW Broadcasters nearby. I managed to set an antenna gain where I can hear ham stations, but the OV sign keeps appearing from time to time.
I also got a Flaming MW bandstop filter, but has too much attenuation and I can't hear well in the HF bands after putting that filter (antenna max gain).

I would like to know if overloading the AGC damages the hardware or I could use it like this for now.
