I was dubious about a TV tuner for Android, but this device works really well. The tuner is tiny and very light which I guess suits a tablet or phone, but does feel a bit insubstantial. Setup was very easy. Install the software from Google Play, plug the tuner in, the software pops open and scan for channels. That's it! Took about 5 mins from opening the box to watching TV. Scanning was very quick and found all the channels I would expect. If your in a strong signal area the supplied small extendable aerial works fine. Their is a slightly larger base mounted aerial supplied as well which is a bit better as it can be positioned for the best signal strength. That one is probably a better bet for somewhere like a hotel room. If the signal is a bit weak, it comes with an adapter to plug a standard coax cable into so you can use with any other aerial. The software which you download from Google play is quite effective and gives you a 7 day guide and the ability to pause live TV both of which work well. You can also record TV but be aware that the current software only allows you to manually start and stop recordings. I hope that in some future version the ability to set up recordings from the guide will be instigated.

I've used the tuner on a Galxay S2 phone running Android 4.0 and on a Toshiba AT300 Tablet running Android 4.1. Both work fine. I've also tried it on my Windows 7 desktop, and it installed itself in seconds and works perfectly with Windows Media Center. However so far my attempts to get to work on a Windows Vista laptop have failed as it wont auto install and the drivers from the Elgato website are for win 7 only and wont install on Vista ? I guess I ought to contact Elgato support about that.

Once in a while you buy a gadget and it actually works better than expected! I have tried this successfully on both Samsung Galaxy S4 phone and my trusty Asus TF101 tablet and was very pleased with the results, happily sitting watching Formula 1 in the middle of the countryside. If you are going somewhere with no internet access, this is a great solution for getting portable TV.

The Android software is intuitive and effective and I was up and running in a few minutes. The picture was great and I could check the TV guide to see what was on, pause real-time TV and watch later.

You will need a decent signal to be able to use it with the supplied aerials but any digital TV needs a decent aerial and I'm amazed it works on the minature aerials supplied. I have a portable amplified aerial that I take if I'm going somewhere with low signal: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00BPAG15W/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_11

My experience using it on my Windows 7 laptop was less than impressive, and I would have marked it down if it advertised itself as being for the PC. Since it doesn't, it was an unexpected bonus to see that it was supported on the PC but the experience was not as slick. In addition to the EyeTV drivers, you have to download some 3rd party software to operate the device which I found to be unintuitive, badly-written and a triumph of form over function. When used in an area with low signal, it takes a stupidly long time to flip through channels and the scan doesn't seem to work as well as on Android, whilst taking longer. I gave up and used my Android device which worked fine - I have no idea why this might be as it was same location and same aerial. In summary, PC is usable as long as there is good signal.

Would definately recommend for those situations where streaming over the internet is not possible. No complaints about use on Android platform.

Bought this for a Pipo tablet as an alternative to a normal digital TV r our boat. Absolutely brilliant piece of kit. would highly recommend. Setup and use is simple. Performance is unbelievable from an minute antenna - it outperformed a new digital tv with 'high gain' antenna mounted on a 10ft pole in the middle of the Norfolk Broads

quite dissapointed that you need a very strong reception, aerial supplied is pretty useless. When you can get a good signal I would have given it 5 Stars , but only ever had that once since i got it ...Hence 3Stars
