I got it today and installed the drivers/software off the CD.

The bundled software on the mini-cd plays the channels smoothly but the quality is poor.

When scanning you won't get any hits until about 60%. It's from about frequency 735000 upwards that you'll hit the channels.

When I load up Windows Media Centre the quality is much sharper but the RTE channels constantly jump. 3e is perfect like. Most likely signal-related but it's a weird/annoying. Still well impressed for a fiver though. When I have time to run a better antenna feed it should be perfect.

Thanks OP

I got what looks like the same thing on the Dealextreme black Monday deals for half price. Should the lights light up when I plug it in? I installed the drivers and the blade software from the mini tv. Can't find any channels in the software or windows media player... the red light flashed momentarilt once but the green one never does.... I'm pretty sure it's not a reception issue as don't even get a trace of a signal... and in my tv i could get a pretty decent signal with no aerial plugged in at all! (indoor nor outdoor).

It comes up as DVB T2 Keyboard in my devices? this normal? windows 7 ultimate 64 bit by the way.. wondering is something wrong with the device or just the operator!

FYI mine has a blue light and it only comes on when I open HDTV Deluxe Player or Windows Media Centre - ie when it's actually in use.

To connect it to the aerial on the roof as the little aerial is pointless for me!



Just ordering one of these as I don't seem to be picking up any signal

Cheers. think it is blue actually, hard to tell when it doesn't light up

I'll try one of the things linked above! worth a shot for little over €1!

Can you use a WMC remote to switch channels with this in WMC?

Any idea if it will allow me to record one channel and watch another (dual tuner I think)?

I did notice this at the top of the page tho.
