Works with SDR on Linux – DVB-T Digital TV Receiver USB Dongle w/ FM / Remote Control / Antenna - Black Reviews

posted by sanderj on 12/02/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
One of my goals was to get it working with SDR (Software Defined Radio) ... which went well: I have it working on Linux for FM radio using rtl_fm Technical details: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR Rafael Micro R820T tuner
Cons:
My other goal was to use it for DAB. However, under Windows, I couldn't find any DAB features. The accompanied CD only seems to give TV-software. No FM, no DAB.
Other:
Command to listen to FM radio under Linux: sudo rtl_fm -f 96900000 -W -s 150000 -r 48000 - | aplay -r 48k -f S16_LE -t raw -c 1
Bottomline:
Great stick for SDR. Pity I can't find any DAB features.
