And at $550-ish, the TVRX/USRP are underpriced. Thanks Matt! I would suggest more realistic pricing on future components. There is little hope of long term viability, time for support, upgrades, etc. without sufficient capitalization. I know that even this is more than many can afford. Nevetheless, it would be better if Matt made enough per board to have a development budget of some sort and new toys to help us get new
toys.  With all of the GPL software, it would be a bargain at much more.

IMHO.  Throw tomatoes now please.

The path of least resistance it to buy a USRP with the TVRX
daughterboard.  See http://ettus.com

Using radio shack parts, you're going to be limited to the bandwidth
you can fit through a sound card, and then you'll still need a way to
downconvert and filter to something that will fit.
