I recently acquired a massive laptop - HP Pavilion HDX9108T with inbuilt DVB-T tuner.

Connected to its supplied aerial and to my home UHF aerial, I can get a small amount of analogue channels.
BUT I can't seem to get any DVB-T channels - through either Windoes Media Center or HP's QuickPlay

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, updated, retuned & repeated a number of times, but still can't get a reliable transmission to analogue or anything via Freeview.

In one instance it seem to know that the Freeview channels were there as it populated a channel list, but even minutes after selecting a channel the screen did not receive any video or audio transmission.

Any clues, sugeestions from anyone?

You need to install some some software that supports out H.264 Freeview|HD broadcasts in New Zealand. Either Windows 7 which offers MCE support or if you're staying with Vista then you can use GB-PVR, Media Portal or DVBViewer.

If you're staying with Vista you will also need to install PowerDVD to installa H.264 codec.
