Hello, and sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
I have just purchased the above USB DVB-T TV tuner, i loaded the software did a scan came up with what looks like all the mediaworks channels, i have tried to get the NZTV channels and the other but can't seem to find them.

I started WMC7 and it found the dongle and all the channels without a problem, so i know it works with that regard.

Anyone have any experirnce with this product?

Why not just use WMC7? It works out the the box (as you have found). The only thing you need to do to get full EPG is use EPG Collector.

Its a good point and makes sense. the usb dvb-t is just for the laptop as a back recorder then to drop the recordings on the NAS for them what must be obeyed to watch thou the HTPC.

I was hoping to use the bundled software to record and resize is all.
