I just purchased a Lenovo G570 Laptop, 2Gb CPU, 4Gb RAM, and an AverTV Volar GPS 805 DVB-T USB dongle. I plugged in the dongle loaded the driver and software package all fine. I then plugged the dongle into a coax cable and wall socket with a strong Freeview signal (Normally has a TV plugged in getting a nice HD signal). I then tried a quick channel scan but got absolutely nothing! I tried a full channel scan with the same results, so I tried a manual input of known HD frequencies for my area (Manawatu, Whariti) but still nothing. I udated the driver to the latest 32bit Windows 7 version and have rebooted and reloaded all with the same results - Nothing! The literature in the manual says all the codecs for this dongle should do just fine, but are there any I may need that may be causing the problem?
Does anyone have any ideas, or is it maybe that the dongle itself is kaput? (In device manager it says it's working OK)
Please help as there is very little info online for this model.
