This product looks very promising for streaming DAB, but does anyone out there have any experience of streaming DVB radio programs (in the UK, Freeview) to a Squeezebox? The reason why I ask, is that for a lot of stations I am interested in, the bitrate is significantly higher on DVB than DAB.

but you get local radio with DAB - swings and roundabouts. My
slimserver box has a Nebula DTT card in it and i've been unable to
find a way of streaming from that or any other DTT card. If i can get
a DTT (or failing that DAB) solution in place i'll be ordering
probably 2 more SB's.

Ah. Looking at that USB box 130 seems stratospheric for what it is.
50 is my target price so i think i'll be waiting a while longer.

Does it have a proper input for a rooftop aerial or just a trailing
piece of wire?
