rtl2832u frequency restriction ???

Post by Richard9026 » Fri May 20, 2016 8:00 pm

Can any tv tuners with rtl2832u / r820t chipset recieve the 24MHz-2200MHz ?
I mean if an tv tuner with that chipset can be restricted to only 87.5-108MHz , because i see at a lot of products with specs like : - FM Radio (87.5-108MHz)

R820T only goes up to about 1.7Ghz max. The E4000 can go higher. There's no artificial restrictions.

Some other tv tuners that don't have an SDR function might be restricted with filters to improve reception, or might be built to only receive the frequencies it needs.
