Playing with the USB TV dongle

Yesterday I found in the letterbox the USB TV dongle (Realtek 2832U chip), which I've ordered some time ago at a cost of couple of coffees.

It took me more than half a day to get it going... Hard work for old bloke who is not very computer smart.

OK I got it going and now I can receive FM radio...

All compliments to the creator(s) of the HDSDR program  it is very very good.  I've played with it before using my KX3 as a SDR radio and with soft rock receiver before that.

Now the question is:  Will I be able to make it work as HF receiver??


  1. Google recent launching of chromecast dongle which is fast and cheap and ready to take over the world. The best this model do is consistently well and so cheaply and has became primary part of media watching routine.

  2. The Rocket Droid Pc is a device that is aiming to be the most powerful portable mini Android dongle. It will plug directly into the HDMI port of any TV and instantly turn it into kick-butt SMART TV - bringing all the power of an Android Mobile Phone to your previously boring TV!
