Has any one tried Freeview on a Mac?

and if so have you tried the TubeStick? http://www.equinux.com/us/products/tubestick/dtt.html
It support DVB-T, so it should work right?
Because I am planning on buying one, but I want to be sure it will work before i get it.

If it doesn't is there anything else that I can use on my mac? (hardware and software wise)

Arghhh. Fixed the link, thanks for pointing out. The software will probably not work here because of the codec standard used in New Zealand.

What is still not clear to me is whether we can use these USB DTT tuners to grab the MPEG transport streams and then use VLC to view them. THe current version of VLC does display the NZ HD broadcasts just fine on the Mac. Download the samples in the forum and try them on your Mac in VLC - they should work perfectly out of the box - they do on my Mac.

So in theory as long as the DTT tuner can get the stream into a MPEG TS file on the disk you can view it on the Mac.

Personally I don't want to shell out the $$$ to find out which DTT cards for the Mac do and don't work for this.

Now once you've got the stream capture working you can work on the EPG.

Cheers, Ed.
