  • Perfect for use with tvheadend

    This is, to the best of my knowledge, the only USB DVB-T2 device with decent out-of-the-box support in the Linux kernel. I can confirm it works with Ubuntu and tvheadend without the need to install any additional software.

  • Setup is not very logical and it is not clear when HDTV channels are being received ? also EPG channel numbering seems to be random. Actual picture quality is quite good though so it does what it says.
