Perfect for SDR – DVB-T Digital TV Receiver USB Dongle w/ FM / Remote Control / Antenna - Black Reviews

posted by jmbechet on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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
Other:
- 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 ...
