Just plugged in my PC^TV NannoStick 73e using Win7 x64. Windows detected it fine and even got drivers through windows update. I ran the TV srtup in MCE and it found 10 channels, none of which are TVNZ or MediaWorks owned. (ie. missing all TVNZ channels as well as TV3 TV3+1 and C4).

I am currently using the ariel that came with the device, however plugging the card into the roof and doing a channel scan yields more results but no reception of any channel

Has anyone seen this before? Do i still need to change settings and things as per earlier versions of MCE or has all of this been resolved?

I have no doubt this has been covered before, but I've never seen a roof ariel get no reception before and I've no idea why I can't pick up any of the TVNZ channels

Where are you? are you sure the antenna is pointed the right way for your area?

Im in Riccaton Christchurch, and I'm not sure exactly which way my antenna is supposed to be pointing exactly. It currently sits atop my computer *feels noob*

Well, the roof antenna should be pointed towards sugarloaf, but I'm guessing you don't have the right antenna on the roof (need on like one of these ).

Thanks for the help. Since I'm planning on staying in this place a while I might just ask the landlord for permission to put up a dish and get a DVB-S card depending upon how expensive a dish is of course, I may end up getting a better ariel.

Either way looks like I'll be watching skins in slightly grainy analog tonight :(
