View Full Version : DVB-T Mpeg4 dongle for OUYA

I realized recently that there may be a simple way to watch FTA TV on Ouya.

In Poland there is a company called iD4Mobile which sells DVB-T dongles for Android and iOS devices. I've tested the Android version with my Galaxy S2 and it works really well.


The dongle is very small. You just plug it to the micro-USB of the smartphone, install the viewer app and watch live TV. This exact device has 3 kinds of antena connector. One of them allows to connect, a full scale cable from big, roof antena.

Only issue with this device is that it (maybe only for now) can't play HDTV chanels but this can be just a software issue.

OUYA has a micro-USB port so I'm quite sure that this could work. It's compatibile with Nexus 7 which is very similiar to OUYA.

I know that this isn't really worth using as a actual DVB-T STB but I thought maybe some one will like to know:)

very cool find, I'd like to see someone develop a tvheadend backend server app so I could connect a usb tv tuner and use it through xbmc.

That would be awesome. Get a decent DVR app/plugin going and official Netflix/Amazon VOD streaming and it would replace my TiVo and in time, my Wii.
