Play.com had this for less than £15 not too long ago.

Unless you're living underneath a DVB transmitting mast, it's unlikely that you'll pick up many, if any, channels with that aerial.

I've not had very good experience with Hauppage equipment. They tend to have zero integration and drivers are a nightmare. Then theres the reception problems. This might be different though, just thought you guys should know.

A PCI Nova-T works fine here with WXP, and another Nova-T and a Nova-T-500 (dual tuner) work fine in my MythTV box running Linux.

Presumably that's a standard coax aerial socket so it'd be OK plugged into a working aerial to act as a 2nd (OK 4th) tv? Anyone recommend a decent portable aerial for on holiday/camping?

I agree without a strong signal the supplied aerials are useless. I've a server in the attic into which I run a hauppage TD Diversity stick with a signal boosted tri-boom aerial. Media portal tv-server feeds my PC downstairs on a 1GB network. Its fantastic but me many attempts to configure.

Geeza

agreed with everyone pointing out the failings of these stupid little usb sticks...i finally managed to get some channels through the roof aerial which gets all the channels on a normal digi box, generally a pain... its a great idea but it just doesnt seem to work.

Theres nothing wrong with these sticks.

The only problem is that you need a proper arial to get any signal. But thats the same for pretty much all of them.

It works very well with Windows Media Center built into windows vista and win 7. Just download the drivers from the hauppauge site.

The sticks themselves are, in most cases, fine; it's just that many companies seem to think that using that sort of image (small aerial+stick+laptop) to sell them is okay. Only a small percentage of the population will be able to use that setup, most will need a much larger aerial to receive any television and so alluding to that situation being available to every buyer is bordering on misselling.
I'm guessing that many complaints about these sticks are solely down to the reason above. If you present an item being used then it should, within reason, be accessible to most of the population in that configuration.

Personally I have a Nova-T-500 card and a Leadtek Winfast stick, both are running fine in my Linux MythTV box whilst attached to a supposed external antenna sitting on a filing cabinet (at some point it's going outside, honest).

I don't know if putting your filing cabinet outside is a good idea.

I'm using a kworld dual tuner stick with DV Scheduler and that works fine with an aerial I put in the loft.
