Not anywhere, far from it. Still waiting for switchover here :x:x:x

Looks nicer than your average USB DVB-T kit, if only I could use the damn thing I would buy one. hot

Haven't tried this specific equipment, but generally speaking you need a good digital external TV aerial to get a good freeview signal.

Artec's website mentions it has 'high-speed usb 2.0 interface', allowing sufficient bandwidth for HDTV.
However, it makes no mention of present or future support for actual decoding of HDTV =/

I know the spec. for terrestrial freeview HD hasn't yet been finalized, however has anyone come across dvb-t decoders offering future support for it?

My tiny indoor aerial bought 11 years ago works fine here :whistling:
I guess it helps being only 20 miles from the Winter Hill transmitter - on a clear day it's almost visible :thumbsup:

The reviews all seem pretty good - I might go for this!

Does anyone have experience of what the artec software is like?

:edit:

Hmm, I take back my previous comments - the reviews i'm now finding say the software isn't very usable or stable

There were some test transmissions on Crystal Palace transmitter and the Nebula DigiTV software enabled the reception of this [url]www.nebula-electronics.com[/url] Unfortunately the company has gone a bit tits up and it's not clear whether future software updates will be provided or not.

For further info read through forums at digitv-forum.co.uk/

I agree but when the analogue is turned off the digital signal should be a lot stronger. It would be nice to find out if anyone who has lost their analogue signal could confirm this?

just go to [url]www.tvcatchup.com[/url] to watch free legal channels from freeview. the qaulity is excellent for streaming, and there are only a small number of adverts which in my opinion are not annoying. they only show the adverts when you change channels.

Bought it a couple of weeks go. Hooked up to a loft ariel and works a treat. Software is functional however it does work with Windows Media Centre if you want.

Looking to find some software to stream to any laptop in the house (dvbdream and vlc looks promising) as tvcatchup does work a treat but don't fancy hogging up my broadband bandwidth on it, especially as the end game is a netbook as a client and worried about flash.

provided the drivers are media centre compatible you should be able to use any software with it - en.wikipedia.org/wik…ges. i have a freecom and a wintv one software they come with is rubbish.
