Works great on on XP laptop and W7 desktop but failed on anoth XP laptop
on 7 December 2012
Ordered this to use in the caravan on a laptop.
Works great on an old XP laptop using the caravan "flying saucer" ariel. Always got some channels and often all. Using the laptop means no need to carry a separate TV. I have even used this at a caravan site that had TV points on the hook up points via a 10m co-ax lead.
I have also plugged this into a Windows 7 professional using media centre and there was no need to install any software as this works with windows media centre. Live viewing, pausing and then viewing and also recording all work great.
I live in a strong signal area and the supplied extendible ariel works fine. This extendible ariel is better than the very short ariels supplied with other similar products. Remote works well.
I've loaded some pictures of it.
UPDATE AUGUST 2013
I ordered a second one of these for my father-in-law. It wouldn't work on a Toshiba XP laptop. Software and driver was reinstalled. Eventually I downloaded the latest software from August. This failed on the first install but after another uninstill and re-install it now works well. I've downgraded my original 5 start review to 4 because of this faff.
