rtl-eeprom - EEPROM programming tool for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers
Dumps configuration and also writes EEPROM configuration. Written by Steve
Markgraf and incorporated in the osmocom rtl-sdr project.
Use at your own risk, especially -w!
Much software is available for the RTL2832. Most of the user-level packages rely
on the librtlsdr library which comes as part of the rtl-sdr codebase. This
codebase contains both the library itself and also a number of command line
tools such as rtl_test, rtl_sdr, rtl_tcp, and rtl_fm. These command line tools
use the library to test for the existence of RTL2832 devices and to perform
basic data transfer functions to and from the device.
Because most of the RTL2832 devices are connected using USB, the librtlsdr
library depends on the libusb library to communicate with the device.
Writing bad information to the EEPROM will make your device useless.
- -d device_index (default: 0)
- -m <str> set manufacturer string
- -p <str> set product string
- -s <str> set serial number string
- -i <0,1> disable/enable IR-endpoint
- -g <conf> generate default config and write to device
<conf> can be one of:
realtek Realtek default (as without EEPROM)
realtek_oem Realtek default OEM with EEPROM
noxon Terratec NOXON DAB Stick
terratec_black Terratec T Stick Black
terratec_plus Terratec T Stick+ (DVB-T/DAB)
- -w <filename> write dumped file to device
- -r <filename> dump EEPROM to file
- -h display this help text
Use on your own risk, especially -w!
