Re: "RTL SDR dongle not working as expected" - SDR noob questions.

I know Kaffeine, but I disliked it in "DVD era". For multimedia I usually use VLC, it has settings for DVB, don't know if it can scan automatically (as for now my dongle is at my neighbor, to test it with big grid antenna).

Re: "RTL SDR dongle not working as expected" - SDR noob questions.

Ok, got the MCX -> F-type conversion cable, maybe tomorrow I'll ask my neighbour to try again to receive anything.
If I need antenna, for (mainly) FM / DAB reception, what type should I look for? Grid or Yagi? And (after scan plot) would be an wideband amplifier needed?

Re: "RTL SDR dongle not working as expected" - SDR noob questions.

Will read, thx for pointing me at.
In mean time I started rtlsdr_scan and it shows (expected) peak in red @91MHz (and about dozen others, set max gain), so what is wrong with rtl_fm?
