Getting the “USB 2.0 Digital DVB-T HDTV TV Tuner Recorder & Receiver” working.
It looks like
When you plug in the USB into Windows 7 64bit it installs a winfast driver. You need to remove this driver if it was installed. Ignore the CD.
Then use the zip file in this tread in the attached zip and run the exe.
After that when you plug in the USB stick you will see in the device manager in the section ‘sound, video and game controllers’ a driver called 'IT9135 BDA Device'. In this section you should not see the winfast driver. Note this will only appear with the USB plugged in.
When you unplug the USB the list in the device manager will refresh and the driver will not show. This was an indication for me that the device was doing something.
I then downloaded PROG DVB 6 which is a free app for tuning in tv cards. It can be found here http://www.progdvb.com/download_progdvb.html.
When I scanned I got nothing. However I did see the blue led flash quickly now and then. This means that its finding a single but its poor quality.
If you get this far and the whole scan is quick, a few minutes and plugging different arials in shows a blue led now and again. Its all good you just need bigger arial.
Thanks to all for your help.
- ps. VLC works as well but is harder to setup as you have to figure our your frequence and down the country line of sight etc. is a hurdle. Windows media centre is blocked on my work laptop :-(.
