You could also potentially record sounds off the device, and stream it to other enthusiasts across the Internet, and even decode pager messages but check that this is legal in your country before you try, especially if you are going to post about it! This depends on the bandwidth of the signal. The standard kernel driver, however, is not suitable for tuning into anything other than TV, because it has a limited set of tuner frequencies which it looks for at the detection stage. I live in New Zealand, and here it’s legal to receive any band except Cellular, and cordless phone bands. The hardware will also allow you to hear emergency services, taxi and freight radios, UHF citizen band radio, aircraft transmissions, and more. You also need to install the kernel source corresponding to the kernel on your system most distros come with a kernel source package. To tune into a radio frequency, you need to give two parameters:

Manli M-TV/TV Capture Card – VideoHelp
On Linux, you have a lot more options for what to do with the sound than on your average scanner radio. I also produced a user-space program to control it. You can also get lists for many countries from scanner clubs in your country.
Lower frequency reception may need a different antenna.

Even if you get the station frequency right, getting this one right is almost as important, or you won’t hear much. Managed to get the kernel package from elsewhere.
This depends on the bandwidth of the signal. Hi guys, before you tell me it’s illegal, and I shouldn’t be doing this etc.

For example, one of the Central 1 Police frequency is Other cards have similar hardware, but you will need to do janli of the work yourself. The hardware will also allow you to hear emergency services, taxi and freight radios, UHF citizen band radio, aircraft transmissions, and more.
If you have a TV capture card in your computer, you probably already have all the hardware you need to listen in on much more than just TV and radio only software changes are needed. Go up a level in the software package, and type make.
You can filter out distracting low frequency noise using the highp filter anything below 50Hz is just distracting, and doesn’t help much in identifying what they are saying. Now, you need to remove any saa package you might have on your system, and replace it with the module you just compiled.
Once you have put your package into the kernel, your kernel is ready to start tuning in. You need to figure out what frequency you want to tune into.
Most other FM radio signals use a narrower band, and generally works well. I can tune into that by using.
Another option would be just to try all frequencies in a certain range until you hit something. Grab the software manlu from here.
SAA is a popular chip for tuner cards. I’m running Ubuntu You also need to install the kernel source corresponding to the kernel on your system most distros come with a kernel source package. A good way to do this is to look up spectrum licenses with the government body that allocates frequencies if that information is readily available.
The antenna that came with your card is probably not very good, so consider rv002 in at least a bunny’s ear antenna. However, I have produced a modified tv02 driver which will let you tune to arbitrary frequencies.

Now that mannli got it working, here’s a helpful hint, especially if you are getting poor reception: For television sound, useor Turn off sound direct to the sound-card using a mixer program, tg002 use a program like sox to process your sound as it goes from dsp1 to dsp.
Go into the kernel subdirectory of the package, and then type: The standard kernel driver, however, is not suitable for tuning into anything other than TV, because it has a limited set of tuner frequencies which it looks for at the detection stage. To tune into a radio frequency, you need to give two parameters: It needs to be attached to a tuner such as the FI Untar the software package.
In this article, I show you how you can make your Linux distribution I used Debian Sarge, but other distros should work too, as long as you have a 2.
