NAME

       rtl-eeprom - EEPROM programming tool for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers

DESCRIPTION

       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.

USAGE

       Writing bad information to the EEPROM will make your device useless.

SYNOPSIS
