Freeview Stick that works with Vista

Looking to buy a freeview USB stick for my nephew - he's got a new laptop for xmas but it's running windows vista.

They won't have net access till mid January so I need one that will work straight out the box - no downloading extra drivers etc.

Can anyone help?

Rep will be given to anyone that can help!

Okay, went through this problem myself a few months back!
I ended up with this xxxxx but you need to get a patch from the vendor to get it to work on Vista. Price £9.99 plus p&p.
The title of this ]one says it is Vista enabled and costs £15.27 plus p&p.
This is an ]article about further information regarding Vista drivers for USB DVB-T sticks.
The other thing to bear in mind is that if you use Windows Media Centre to watch TV you will need to be connected to t'internet during set up or it won't get the settings.
My preference would be to get the first one, it's a great price and get the patch e-mailed to yourself and burn it to disc for your nephew. Most of the others that I've found don't seem to work with Vista despite saying that they do.
Hope this helps.
