Using EZCap EzTV668 DVB+ receiver for SDR on Mac OS X 10.7

There has quite a bit of buzz about the RTL-SDR project that is going on over at reddit on the rtl-sdr subreddit. Most of it has been about using the RTL2832/e4000 devices under Windows and Linux. Since I primarily use Mac OS I decided to cobble together the various hints of other people who have successfully used the devices on Mac OS and document them in a gist on github:

Update: After some feedback on reddit for the previous gist I decided to revisit my build to that I would have a more up to date version of GNURadio. After much hacking I came up with these directions for getting GNURadio 3.6.0 working on 10.7:

After following those directions you’ll want to then install the rtl-sdr driver and then gr-osmocomm so that you’ll be able to use the RTL tuner with gnuradio.
