Reliable USB DVB-T2 adapter for Linux

  • by

For my tvheadend setup I was searching replacement for my dual multi-standard DVB TBS 5281 adapter, which is not working in recent kernels (>4.17) due TBS obsolete drivers. It is sad, because I was very satisfied with that hardware.

On linuxTV I have found that dual DVB-T2 usb adapter supported in linux exists and it is WinTV-DualHD. Available on amazon, which can be delivered to Slovakia. Now I have two of them:
