I'm keen to try out the new freeview medium but not too sure where to by a USB tv adaptor + I don't want to buy one to find it doesn't work in NZ. I only really want to pay prob $40 max including shipping :-D. Will one of the cheap USB ones off Ebay be ok? Trademe doesn't seem to have really any on it + the cheapest one on pricespy was around $80 from mem. I've already got 2 sat tv cards (skystar 2 and a Twinhan USB one) but I want to see what the HD broadcast are like :-). Would something like this be alright? http://tinyurl.com/2v2xws I don't want to get one to find it doesn't work with programs like DVBViewer either. Am I being too picky? :-)
I would suggest that before you do anything you read some of the threads here on GZ, particularly this one here. Most USB devices will work but if you think you're suddenly going to get DVB-T for $40 you'll probably soon realise it could cost you 10 x this.
You do need a reasonably current high spec PC (dual core minimum), you do ideally need a NVidia series 8 or greater PCIer graphics card such as a 8400 or greater and you do need to have PowerDVD Ultra which costs US$99 for a download which is the best implimentated H.264 codec.
There are going to be plenty of people scammed into buying DVB-T devices soon, there are already sellers on TradeMe selling them with no knowledge at all about the requirements which are totally different to the MPEG2 DVB-T broadcasts in other countries.
