Good price Delivery to add though...

I wonder if it does exactly as it says?

Thanks

What do you mean rayman? It sounds like every other DVB-T tuner out there?

I think a lot of the DVB-T sticks often need a better aerial, but a lot will depend on where you're using it...

Ah, I see, what defines a UHF/VHF Antenna, I thought they meant the one on top of your house, are you saying they mean any old little ariel?

Oh, and good post ]rommy!

I am guessing this is basically a external digital (freeview) tv card.

That's what I meant It probably does mean the one on top of your house tohugh. We have an ordinary roof top aerial and it picks up Freeview perfectly well. Although I had to upgrade the coaxial to digital from indoor wall socket to make it as good as it is.

It sounds that way to me too the.capt...

Yeah, you'd expect for £34 (original Price) they'd have put a Scart socket or S-Video connector on it though.

How's that? (We have a basic aerial wire coming into the house from the roof that just runs along the floor to the TV, although we don't use it since we got Cable years ago).

I agree, my pc tv tuner needed another ariel, the one you got with it is not good enough.

I have cable too, but the old coaxial lead gave a blocky picture on a couple of channels. Upgraded it to a digital coaxial and it's perfect...

That' what others have mentioned with them.

Sorry, I'm a bit confuzzled, when you say old Coaxial, do you mean the one that connects to your rooftop aerial?
If so, at what point did you have to replace it from Coax to Digital, at the point where it comes into the house from the roof or from somewhere else in the house?

Apologies if I'm sounding obtuse.

X10

Ah... From where it comes into the house at the wall socket.

From having a look around it looks like these might not be such a great deal... the software sounds like it might be a bit rubbish, and they don't seem to work with Windows Media Centre or any of the other Media Centre type software around (have a look at ]http//ww…tml or ]http//sv…859).

Does anyone here have one of these?

Is it possible to use different software for watching the programs and viewing the EPG??

I have a freecom usb stick and it works fine and has quite good software...I am thinking of buying this for another PC and wondered whether the freecom software would work with this model???

I have the freecom model, my brother has a different make of tv stick, his software is not as good as mine, he tried to use freecom software but it won't function on his tv stick.

if you look at the list of the features, it says

Additional AV/ S-Video Input for connecting other
video sources. (such as DVD Player/ VCD/ VHS/ Camcorder

can someone confirm that?. also they have released new software for this tuner which is supposed to fix many of the problems.

It's a good price but I personally wouldn't put much faith in any USB tv devices. IMHO, USB isn't designed for this kind of consistent high bandwidth (unlike firewire) and you may encounter stuttering over long periods of use.

My friend has the smaller KWorld dongle with just freeview and that really doesn't like power management but otherwise fine for casual use and at this price a bargain.

just got one today (still not got it working:confused: and it's not even heavy enough to use as a doorstop)

sorry to report that the only connecting socket on it is the "aerial in"

are these MCE 2005 compatable?
If so... can you use 2 of them at once (for PIP and dual record)
if not ill buy to pci cards.
Ad,

So does anyone know if the updated software is any better?
