Works reasonably well – DVB-T Digital TV USB Dongle Stick With FM/DAB/DAB+ Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Good cheap DAB+ solution
Picks up all Brisbane digital TV stations and DAB+ multiplexes (with fairly good antenna - see con though below)
Cons:
Included antenna doesn't work well for DVB-T reception but works fine for DAB+ and FM. Using roof antenna is OK.
RTL2832U SDK is a bit weak if you want to write your own drivers. Limited support in other applications. Still trying to write my own application to support DAB+ reception and decoding (HE-AACv2)
Other:
Not many other choices and DX is best price I've found.
Haven't tried with MythTV (Mythdora) but other reviews suggest it should work OK.
I really only bought it for DAB+ reception.
Bottomline:
Will probably buy another.
