Looks interesting, cheers.

There are no BDA drivers available for this so it will not work in media center in xp/vista or win7.

From amazon

- it can't distinguish between channels that share a slot, so the BBC channels like Three and Four, that time-share their slots with CBBC and CBeebies, don't work properly. It will only recognise the channel that was broadcasting at the time you scan, and won't display the other one.
- Support is non-existent from Artec. All you can download is an update to the drivers, not the full driver set, so DON'T LOSE THAT CD!!
- If you change USB ports, you have to reinstall the drivers.
- When recording, it writes the entire file to your desktop first, before moving it to the location you specify when it's finished. If you have multiple drives, and you C: drive is small, this limits the the length of recording quite seriously.
- Most of these faults are down to the software - it is really, really poor.


any idea about windows 7/vista?


There are three reviews on amazon - two offer 5 out of 5 - and the one you listed offers 2 - and it costs nearly twice the price there.

I don't use an M$ operating system, do they make it difficult to look things up on the internet? :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

2.0 out of 5 stars It works, but it's far from the best., 10 Feb 2008
By JeliBeli - See all my reviews
I'll start with the good bits - the picture quality is great, especially with recorded stuff. And, given a good signal, it picks up quite a few channels. The remote works quite well, too. Once you've got a few channels, the signal strength and signal to noise meters are useful in setting up the aerial to help you get more. They are a bit slow, though, and you don't get them until you've picked up at least one channel.

However:

- Most of these faults are down to the software - it is really, really poor.

Some hardware versions of this device can be persuaded to operate with better software from other manufacturers, but some (those based on the Panasonic chip) can't. I have had mixed results from this in the couple of years I've had it, and after coming back to reinstall it, and coming up against many problems, I'm throwing in the towel and buying a different one instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 25 Sep 2007
By Fraser Clark (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
I was pleasantly surprised with this product as there have been many horror stories of expensive units that pick up no channels. After a quick install of the drivers from the CD and setting up the box I was able to pick up 4 channels. On re-scanning I got 13. On moving upstairs I got 67! All crystal clear. It picks up all "freeview" channels, and in digital format so it will cope with the UK digital upgrading rolling around as I type.

The antenna supplied is a bit puny (only 4 inches long) and comes with a strong magnet on the bottom, which may not be suitable for sensitive electronic equipment, however you can pick up cheap high gain aerials for less than £10.

This is a good, cheap, highly portable and easy to use gadget that I highly recommend.

If this does actually work, that's a fantastic price!
#6
Could someone in the 'know' please clarify if this will work on windows vista/7. thanks :thumbsup:
#7
I suspect the hardware itself is quite decent.
Use it with software like ProgDVB or My Theatre.
Very good price
Heat added

The aerials on these are usually shockingly poor and you can't pick up half the channels.

I tried my mates out and couldn't pick up anything, that was 18mths ago and was from Maplin no idea how powerful the antenna/receiver was though.
#9
out of stock! That didn't last long.
#10
Looks like when it started shifting they put the price up, now £10.99, still under clearance section.
Was hot now cold.
#11
Damn damn damn.

Could have done with four of these, and they work with Linux out of the box.
#12
I got one of these a couple of days ago. The software installs fine on Vista. The little aerial works a treat - indoors and pointing roughly towards a transmitter picked up 40 stations. This was on its initial 8MHz (or is it GHz?) spacing search. It then performed a 7Mhz spacing search, and a 6MHz. Neither of these picked up any more channels. The picture was great, and perfectly acceptable on full screen (22 inch).

BUT after about 10 minutes it stopped working, with an error message regading encoding of date. Could unplug from the USB port, re-plug, and get another 10 minutes, etc, but not really practical. The remote control doesn't seem to do anything, though thats not much of a problem when you're sat at the screen anyway.

Anyone else tried using this on Vista?
#13
I bought one and had it delivered today the aerial does not pick up any channels I had to use my main one to scan managed 52 channels some radio also I`ve not tried the record function though i`m sure it will work ok.
I also managed to install on my acer notebook on xp works a treat.
Just need a decent portable aerial and i`m good to go.

just found one of these in the loft - does anyone know if there are drivers for windows 7?
