According to the freeview shop forum DVB-T tests are underway in NZ. I have the above unit that I brought back from London. It worked ok when I was there and I understand that the UK freeview transmits Mpeg2. Apparently here it's Mpeg 4. As far as I can tell the specs  of the unit seem to indicate that it doesn't matter what format is broadcast bur the unit does not find any channels. Someone on the freeview forum suggested someone here may be able to help. Something about getting the right codec. Does the codec refer to quicktime? I have contacted Miglia and had no reply so if anyone can help that would be great.

Hehe, if you're using Eyetv, there is no chance of it working yet. The codecs just aren't supported by them yet. With the introduction of BBC HD in the UK, we should hopefully get h.264 support in version 3. As for finding channels, Set it to digital and scan the 'UK' channels. Eyetv seem to think that we are on 7Mhz.

Yeah I was using eye tv. I now have the channels listed though so thanks for that. I wrote to the people that make The Tube software to see if that will do the trick but if not I guess I'll just have to wait.
