    I would like to know if KALI has a BVD-T reception program.

    If yes, there would be a possibility to use the RTL stick for SDR on Word program
    and as DVB-T on KALI

    Is that possible?

    Tnx for a reply

      I reccomend Vmware player and workstations over virtualbox as virtualbox uses a java base and therefore doesn’t run quite as quick or as smooth as vmware does. Just my personal opinion 🙂

        VirtualBox doesn’t have anything to do with Java, it is open source and everyone could check the code base. It works very well on many platforms.

      • Pingyu Nao says:

        VirtualBox is written in C, C++, and assembly.
