1 Overview

FM Radio receiver based upon RTL-SDR as PVR addon for Kodi. This add-on to receive FM-Radio with RDS on very cheap USB DVB-T stick relies on RTL SDR FM Streamer software which is a small tool to stream FM radio by using a DVB-T dongle to a client e.g Kodi, (or VLC, or MPlayer for that matter). Operation is complete performed inside CPU which allow a lot of features, but also requires a lot of CPU performance.

The DVB-T dongle has to be based on the Realtek RTL2832U hardware chip. See http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr for more RTL SDR details.

This addon interfaces with RTL-SDR supported receivers with Realtek RTL2832U as source (see http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr) to make FM radio signal receive and send the audio stream in float format to Kodi and send also RDS signal translated to UECP in it.

Add-on is usable since Kodi 15.0 and RDS support first came with version 16.0 of Kodi.

Note! On linux make sure the kernel part dvb_usb_rtl28xxu for DVB-T is not loaded, otherwise is it not usable for RTL-SDR!
