Is there a way to capture DVB-T video using a generic USB DVB-T dongle on a mac? I've read many examples of people using VLC on Linux/PCs, but can't see any generic drivers on Mac OSX?

    So, why not use VLC on Mac? Or what problems with that you are facing? – Shultc Dec 27 '15 at 3:16

    VLC on OSX doesn't decode from the DVB stick. – tomh Dec 27 '15 at 9:52

Seems unlikely as per this section on the MythTV wiki:

Pretty much the only Capture Cards that are supported on OS X are the HDHomerun tuners from Silicondust
