    Question Different user, same problem

    Here a NOOB user with the same problem.......
    I bought a stick from Ebay with the following description: "USB2.0 DVB-T + DAB + FM RTL2832 R820T2 SDR RTL-SDR Stick Digital TV Tuner Striki".
    It looks like the one advised to buy and "RTL2832 R820T2" present in the description.

    But, rtl_test -t gives the following output:
    Found 1 device(s):
    0: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001

    Using device 0: Generic RTL2832U OEM
    Found Fitipower FC0012 tuner
    Supported gain values (5): -9.9 -4.0 7.1 17.9 19.2
    Sampling at 2048000 S/s.
    No E4000 tuner found, aborting.


    Now this NOOB is confused....... Did I order the correct stick and did I receive the wrong one? When Yes, how do I know that I will order the correct one next time?

    Any help or hits appreciated.

    The description by seller was OK (RTL2832 + R820T2), and you ordered correct dongle.
    The Seller has send you the wrong one (RTL2832U + FC0012).

    Contact the Seller and tell him he has sent you dongle with different specifications from what he has listed, and ask him to send you a replacement dongle exactly as listed, or refund your money.

    Thanks for the answer.
    I think I already have my money back:

    My eBay USB2.0 DVB-T + DAB + FM RTL2832 R820T2 SDR RTL-SDR Stick Digital TV Tuner Striki Return item

    You got a refund!
    It's that easy-you're getting your money back and you don't have to return the item. Shop with us again soon!


    That is one step, but now I have to find a seller that sells the correct one.......
    The one I have is the black one. On Ebay you also find many blue ones. They have '820T2' printed on the case, so I'm going to try one of those.

    The Black ones are old version with R820T.
    The Blue ones are new version with R820T2, and are better.
    If RTL820T2 is printed on the case, then it is the correct one.
    It is good decision to buy the Blue one.
