  • Perfect for SDR

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Works well with OsmoSDR, RTLSDR and SDR#

    Cons:

    - very hot after a while; some websites advise to install an homemade heatsink to avoid to damage the device

    OtherThoughts:

    - do NOT install drivers provided on the CD if you plan to use it for SDR
    - I didn't tried the device for its primary use : television ;-)
    - I didn't tried the remote control
    - needs a quite powerful computer for SDR (multi-core processor)
    - if you want to connect and home-made antenna, SKU 165089 is what you need

    Bottomline:

    - you will have to improve the antenna to receive things like CB, amateur radio, weather data, airplanes ...
