Best T2 usb device 2018

Have a roof areal and can visually see the transmitter, TV never has a signal problem

  • Hauppauge WinTV-dual HD - Fantastic, stable and works well with my signal so far records all channels, dual support is not currently in main line kernel or v4l though patches can be found.
  • PCTV nanoStick T2 - unstable with my signal
  • DVB-T210 - unstable with my signal

adding a udev rule - handy when using rtl-433
