I've just had a good search for a answer but nothing really satisfied me.So here go's. Just installed a AVerTVMedia DVB-T super 007, did a scan, found all the freeview channels etc but the quality percentage keeps jumping form anywhere from 10%- 100%. At times it seems to settle down for a bit then I get the odd giltch/freeze, which at the end of the day makes it unwatchable and not to mention the nasty glear from the wife.

I've installed the latest drivers for win7 etc but I'm thinking its just my aerial on the roof is a tad out. I'm thinking this becuase prime is a wee bit snowy. I'm in CHCH, Prebbleton and kind of rural so can't see the neighbours UHF aerials but I do have line of sight to sugar loaf. So I take it the next step would be just to get on the roof and move the aerial until prime has improved or I'm I looking at something else. I read something about AverMedia had acceleration issues with H.246 or something. Oh yea also the remote fails to work also.Thanks for the help

Ok so I've improved things some what, I'm "trying" out DVB Viewer and I've moved the aerial on the roof a tad. But I'm only running on my desktop monitor, this enabled me to cut out an extension of coax I needed to reach the TV in the lonuge. Have all channels working prety good only with the odd small freeze so pretty happy with that.

Thing I can't work out with DVB veiwer is the % meter its was saying 80% when I had no sound or picture but now says 35-40% and all is good, whats up with that?

Edit Ran it back into the lounge using the extension thought I was losing signal from that but once I disconnected the VHF aerial on the roof got 100% on all channels. So looks like I was getting a mixed signal and maybe that was the main problem still can't work out the % meter on DVBveiwer tho at one stage it was in the red running 3% but sound and picture good
