Using a desktop PC running Windows 7, no need to install any software. Windows Media Centre installed the drivers.
With the aerial supplied, no stations found out here in deepest darkest Rural Somerset. Connected to my rooftop aerial and WOW. More stations than my Sony TV.
We went digital here, last year. No more analogue stations. This USB chip is brilliant.
Not yet managed to get the remote control working. Using Media centre, its a doddle to control.
Its great being able to select a program to record then either watch it back on the computer later or better still, burn a DVD to watch in the lounge, using rewritable DVD+RW discs.
I now record radio programs as well.
Amazing price, I am like a dog with two tails.
