For those who missed this on Amazon, it’s still available on eBay from The Game Collection Outlet. Unlike the Amazon deal this does not require a minimum spend for free delivery.

This is used to view live TV via Xbox One (all models), but some have also had success using this with Raspberry Pi and other Linux-based systems.

It's useless. You can't record anything, the EPG is REALLY bad and after owning one for a few years in a brilliant reception area it still cannot find all the channels!

It's cheap for a reason.

Noted, thank you! 😁
Would this do something interesting with Plex and a Freenas Server?
Someone on this thread may know but is there a way to watch Freesat instead through an Xbox one? Otherwise a separate box am guessing is the solution.

I have never recorded live TV in my life! If it’s not live I prefer to watch the rerun/ondemand/dvd/Blu-ray/whatever...

It works with osmc/core/LibreElec gets all hd channels for me.
Worth a punt. If it’s a bad as Nathan says it should be easy enough to sell for a fiver... hell, even Cex give £5 for it (voucher)... You can part exchange or swap for a cheap game

Surely if you own an Xbox... you own TV to watch live TV on?

The initial functionality was that you could watch TV while playing a game at the same time. Now that feature has been removed the tuner is next to useless.
Can someone tell me if this runs on Windows 10 and what is needed for it to work...ie driver etc / or if plug and play?
Just received mine now off ebay after I saw on the Amazon thread, going to try out with a raspberry pi 4

Exactly what it needs, a driver, and none exists as Microsoft never intended it to work with windows 10.
No aerial needed?

Yeah, it works really well, the guide is well structured and easy to navigate (nowhere near as good as mediacenter tho )

Great, if you want to just always have your xbox on and be the sole source of you'd media viewing and gaming

Good if you use a Freesync monitor rather than a TV too

I have bought two and after a while the picture freezes with only sound. Have to switch channels to get it working again. I no longer use it.
Just like the TV its connected to. Cheers
I got one a while back. Pretty useless.

I wouldn't know why that was needed to start with....you end up not concentrating fully on either.

Can't tally with you. Found 170 channels no problem, EPG is excellent, doesn't pretend to offer recording and I couldn't care less.

Excellent bit of kit well happy with it.
