    HI Guys

    Just wondering if there is support or maybe in the future for a Tv Tuner USB that has FM and DAB+ radio.
    MP ssees it as a tuner but does not see it has FM and DAB radio.



    It would be really good to GET DAB/DAB+ radio working as this is the way radio is going and with this finding channels
    as well as playing them is really great and clear. Far superior over FM ..

    I'm guessing this is one of the Digitalnow products?

    Can someone post your TV Server logs please...

    Hi everyone

    I apologise for the lack of response. I've had a look at the logs provided by Vispen74. It looks like it should be possible to add support, although I'm not yet clear on how the filter graph will need to be connected. For pure DAB it *could* be something like other DVB tuners with network provider->tuner->capture->tee->TS writer. Hybrid FM/DAB could be a completely different "kettle of fish", possibly with some kind of crossbar. I think the next step is really for one of the TV Server developers like myself to get access to some hardware. Can any of you recommend a relatively cheap but reliable DAB+ tuner available to buy from New Zealand and I'll start saving my money...

    - Buying from EBay would be fine, but shipping could be expensive for me unless it is EBay Australia.
    - How is the DigitalNow Dabby, and is anything cheaper available?

    Was thinking the same. DAB support would be great. Just not sure how these devices work. Did a little trawling of Linux forums and I am not sure if BDA stuff is dvb-t only.

    Still http://www.sandberg.it/support/Mini-DVB-T-Dongle looks cheap enough for a punt
