New gadget – DVB-T USB Digital TV receiver

Picked up this neat little USB dongle that can receive Digital Terrestrial TV.

It took a bit of fiddling to get it working, but after ditching the supplied antenna and using an amplified one I was able to get it tuned in to a range of free to air digital tv channels. The picture above shows it with its fetching blue LEDs shining through the holes in the case. The quality of the received tv is not too bad, no picture break up yet. It requires USB 2.0 so I’m not able to try it on my linux laptop 🙁

The software supplied has a number of applications, the main tv viewer, another for cropping saved mpeg files, another for converting file format and a simple dvd creation and burning application. I’ve only looked at the tv application so far and even then not used all the features. I’ve not tried the PVR features yet, thats for another day!

More details on the beast at here.
