       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.
