quick question concerning the RTL2832U ADC: is it 7 bit (as
stated on the Realtek web page in the cryptic "7-bit ADC for 
RF signals level measurement" or 8-bit as stated on the osmosdr
web page ? or is it 7 bit + sign = 8 bits ?

I am computing the gain from oversampling wrt a sound card, and
not that it matters much but I'd rather have the figures right.

Thanks, JM
