well the first question is, are you getting your TV via DVB-T (your TV aerial) or DVB-S? (a satellite dish)

start by reading the New Zealand Freeview | HD Guide (DTT/DVB-T)

Power Cinema will work with it too I believe, but i don't have that card, so don't know for sure.  Make sure you download the latest version too, I don't think the version it comes with works with NZ Freeview, but the download does.

Watching Freeview|HD channels in Vista Media Center is not currently possible as it does not support the H.264 video and AAC audio formats used in New Zealand.

To view the Freeview|HD channels you really need to be using DVBViewer, GB-PVR or Media Portal.
