Hello.
Today my Elgato EyeTV DDT TV Tuner stick for mac arrived. But I can't pick up any channels. I have tried on the aerial suppied, the one in my own home, and one at a friends. It failed it pick up any channels (even after turning on exhaustive scan).
What can I do to get this working?
Thank you for the help.
Heres a pic of what happens after a scan has happened.

When changing the service DVB-T PAL BG is the only option, though there is a save channels and edit option though. Had a look at the link but cant seem to find where to change it to the other.
Thank you :)

You'll need a rooftop UHF aerial to get a good enough signal I've found.

Check signal strength and quality in the preferences under the device icon.

Seems to need high signal quality and strength to get a picture.

I tried my UHF aerial but getting a really weak signal from it :/
Would changing it to DVB-T PAL-I help? I still cant find that option though

If you have limited signal it is unlikley to help, what is your signal strength according to eyetv?

Where are you located?

Nope. You need a decent signal, then you'll be sweet. If you're in the Freeview DTT coverage area and have a rooftop aerial you should be fine. May need to adjust roof aerial?

I'm in Levin. Thinking about trying it in Palmerston North to see if it works better there. The signal strength is about halfway.
