Can I use my VU+ receiver

Hello from germany,

I’m using a receiver from vu+ to watch TV but can I use it to get data from outernet if i’m not watching?

Thank you

Outernet is no longer broadcasting on Ku band which I assume your set up will be.

It’s now on L band so you’d need this stuff

I think the L-band is the DVB-T stuff? The hardware can do dvb-t too.
I’m using this tuner

At miminum, we require the RTL2832U in the receiver. And then an amplifier and directional L-band antenna is required. As of right now, there are relatively few places to obtain compatible hardware, though this will surely change some day.
