Looks the same as the one at the top of this screen (almost identical product code): http://www.sumvision.com.cn/searchResults.aspx?ptype=22

If so, its vista compatible and has bda drivers for xp/vista media center

#3
Is it any good though?

Can anyone tell me how this works exactly?

I'm not sure how good my antenna is and how many channel's I'd be able to pick up, does it depend on my antenna?

Does anyone know if the software provided works with Linus?

I suggest you follow the link and read the reviews before you jump in and order one. I bought a similar thing a while back and could never get it to work, despite sending it back 3 times for an exchange! I get Freeview on other TV's but it didnt even work with house aerial.
#7
by the pictures it looks like you can only use their own supplied aerial and not yours, is this true? I really need to buy one, my tevion one from aldi failed on me!
#8
I would be very surprised if they didn't come with an adaptor so you can connect a normal aerial lead...

Pretty sure it doesn't have an analogue tuner, just digital.

Great price - just ordered one, plus some other things from SVP. Discount worked very quickly.
#15
cheers OP, went for one for my new lappy, just need to buy a 6ft aerial i can put in a rucksack so i can get recetion on the move ;-)
#16
It's a good price, but don't expect anything amazing from the Sumvision brand.
I ordered 3 Sumvision pc products from SVP a couple of years ago, they all had poor build and next to useless instructions.

The thing that topped it off was that none of the 3 products actually worked!
So in my experience it's a brand I won't be touching again.
#17
Just ordered one too. Thanks.
#18
Also ordered, been looking for something like this for a while...

did have a Twinhan (paid around £60 for it 3 yrs ago! became redundant for the last yr and it seems they no longer support software for it!
#19
But is it Mac (OS X 10.4.10) compatible though???

I just got this, the little antenna that comes with it is terrible, doesn't pick up anything. Does anyone know what antenna or what I can do to pick up any channels?

I know I can get a load of freeview channels in my area.
[mod]#22
I got one too, maybe should have known better, get what you pay for. The reciever is more than a little deaf in mine. Stuck my rooftop high gain aerial on it which gives signal strengths of 10 -10 on my usual box type Freeview recievers and the most this one managed was a 40% with a lot being 26% and choppy.
I will wait to see what others report with theirs.
#23
Well, all I can seem to get now is the BBC channels and a few choppy radio stations.

I'm afraid thats par for the course with these things when using the supplied antenna, I'm half expecting to have the same problem myself.

I've heard some people have had success connecting it to a rooftop aeriel to scan and save the channel, then swap to the supplied antenna for watching programs.
#25
OK. I just set mine up and did an autoscan, and have only picked up 24 channels using my normal aerial in the loft. Don't seem to be picking up any ITV channels or Channel 4 or 5? Am I scanning the correct frequencies? The default was 177500-858000 KHz. Just got it on BBC1 atm and it's reporting a 79% signal strength. Also, BBC1 is 'CH4', is there a way to change this?

Yes your scanning the right frequencies. Mine managed 97 channels but thats with 2 off most tv stations as 2 transmitters are in line where my wideband aerial points.
What I did find though was a laptop with Vista had mush worse reception figures than another XP laptop in the same room on the same aerial. Extending the usb lead to twice the length of the one supplied also increased signal, so I am suggesting that the dongle is not screened well if at all from noise from the laptop.

I lastly connected it to my XP desktop with a long usb lead so its dongle was well away from the pc and it worked best there with signal strength of 90% average.
Time for some trial and error tests for you I think.

Received today, but no installation instructions. Got the driver to install, but not the Application. Manufacturer website doesn't have the application for download. Can anybody help?

The way I did it on 3 machines was, plug in dongle, os finds it and wants to search for drivers, cancel that and from the opening screen of the mini cd clicked to instal driver, once thats installed install the application.
Vista didnt require a reboot but XP said it did, having said that on the 2nd XP install I didnt reboot but just opened the dvbt player desktop icon and away it went quite happily.

Got mine yday and used an external aerial, picked up all the channels fine.

annoying thing is that you cannot easily rearrange the channel order, I would rather have mine in the same order as normal freeview. Also only scans the channels available at the time so it wont pick up channels broadcasting later on. Think I need to spend some time tinkering with the notepad document!

I had a quick play at altering the ini files and it seems like you can edit the channel numbers to the same as freeview ones for your favourites, but I abandoned this as it was getting too time consuming.

Hopefully if I manage it tonight then I will upload it for all

also any idea how to get it to work with xp mce?

Uploading it wont be of much use unless others are in your area using the same transmitter as you. The channel listing may be of use but the transmitters all use different frequencies.

Here is an example from my favorites not edited. As you see the first big number is the frequency used, 2nd the mux I think and 3rd&4th the stereo splits. Not sure what the last 2 are.
I suggest you have a play if you have the time and get back to us ;-)

Well spent hours messing with it and decided to give up. Got high gain aerial for TV which works perfect with digital, connect to this and I get channels but keep breaking up. 40-50 on signal and only 2 miles from Emley Moor mast. lol

Tried on powered USB hub as well and no change, Dual core E6600 and 2GB so system ain't the problem.

anyone know how to get this to work with XP MCE?

it *should* be supported out-of-the-box since it has a BDA driver... just let Windows search for drivers on the included CD...
#37
mine works fine -- and my signal isnt very strong (but is also adequate to connect to a dual hauppauge PCI card i have in my pvr). i have to say, i think this Sumvision is rather good - except the dodgy adapter which feels like it would be prone to damage / dust ingression etc...

Works fine in windows but having trouble with the bda drivers.. uninstalled everything (software/driver) and chose the location of the bda drivers when installing again. But MCE still says that there is either a problem with the hardware or the correct drivers are not installed
