I'm looking at setting up DVBLogic's DVBLink software on my Netgear ReadyNas (Duo v2 - 102) so I can then watch (on TV, Boxee, etc) and record (to ReadyNas) NZ Freeview.

Reading a fair bit of documentation, it all looks sweet, just with a few hassles in choosing channels (i.e. have to search each channel rather than auto 'add all') and potentially having to manually set up the EPG configs via XML.

Q: Anyone have any experience with this?

Then, I just want to check that it supports NZ Freeview -- to quote DVDLink "DVBLink TVSource supports Terrestrial (DVB-T/T2 and ATSC), Cable (DVB-C and ClearQAM) and Satellite (DVB-S/S2) TV signals."

Q: NZ Freeview = DVB/T? (I have it over aerial not dish)

Looking at this, NZ is not on there

But perhaps just not added as confirmed by a user.

Then there is a list of supported USB TV Tuners for DVBLink on the ReadyNas:

Q: Is there anything I need to consider for a suitable TV Tuner for NZ, or will all/any DVB/T work here?


Thanks in advance,

Any DVB-T tuner will work with Freeview HD... though tuning speed may vary... and perhaps it would be advisable to get a DVB-T2 tuner for "future proofing". Most important would be to make sure you get a tuner that is compatible with DVBLink.
