Engineering and technology notes

DVB-T – RTL2832

The main driver in use is dvb_usb_rtl28xxu, and exists in the latest kernels. If it is not loaded, do so manually:

# modprobe dvb_usb_rtl28xxu

You might also need to load rtl2832 or rtl2830:

# modprobe rtl2830
# modprobe rtl2832
Note: If you have RTL-SDR installed, note that it conflicts with this driver, and therefore blacklists it. Make sure to remove any necessary blacklists before loading the driver. The default location for the blacklist file is in /etc/modprobe.d/rtlsdr.conf.
