Hi i live here in Auckalnd and i just bought the NOVA0 T usb stick tv tuner.

problem is its not tuning with the supplied antenna and my roof antenna, not a single channel shows at all

im wondering anyone else has a solution or has this product and figured a way around it.

im using windows media center and the supplied Wintv v7 program and none of them get any channel

ive placed the aerial as high as i can, tried every region and nada

im missing the olympics!!

help is appreciate

The supplied antenna is next to useless unless you are living close to the tranmission site.
What type of antenna is your roof antenna?
It needs to be UHF only with good quality co-ax and good connections.
Depending on your location any old VHF or combination VHF/UHF probably won't be good enough.
