Customer Questions and Answers

15/01/2012 Graeme: I want to attach the tuner to a fixed aerial outlet in the wall. However, the receptor in the wall and the receptor in the tuner are both female. All my connector leads have male at one end and female at the other. Do I just need to buy a connector lead with a male thing at both ends please? I'm confused.

paul: You would need to purchase a new ariel lead.

23/05/2011 Dad: will this work with windows 7 64-bit

jonathan: Yes this will work with Windows 7 64 bit

14/02/2011 Stan-G: Is this product compatable with Windows 7, or is there an alternative product available?

simon: Yes

19/09/2009 psg: how long is the cable that connects the supplied aerial to the usb receiver?

SteveF: Its around a metre.

14/06/2009 bobz: Hi,is there any provided software and could you use this on the move

SteveF: Yes to both of those although you'll need somewhere to put the aerial if used on the move.

23/02/2009 joy p: Hi. Does this work on the Acer Aspire One, Linux o/s.
Thanks for now

dave: No

07/02/2009 ben in the butt: will this work with Acer Aspire 2920Z Gemstone Laptop

david s: yes

20/01/2009 mark: why do i need TV license at my main residence to legally use this TV tuner, even tho i dont have a tv set or radio.

SteveF: If you plug that into your laptop and receive TV channels then it is classed as a TV, even though it can do other things so if you don't have a TV license, you will need to get one. If you need confirmation please give your local TV licensing office a call and I'm sure they'll be happy to explain.

15/01/2009 Tomm: would a asus g2sg work with one of these?

SteveF: As long as its got a USB port, then yes.

07/01/2009 Tim: Hi, will this work if plugged into an external analogue roof aerial or does it need a digital external aerial?

SteveF: Its a digital tuner so will need the equivalent aerial. It comes with a portable digital aerial but will benefit from buying either an internal or external aerial.

02/01/2009 Lewis: Where you say this is "digital", will this mean that when the digital switchover happens this will still be able to work?
Also, what programme do you need to then watch tv on the laptop? Anything thats free?
And a cheeky question, you are stating this very good deal of half price, any idea when that offer may end?

david s: time scale of offer i dont know, but yes when switch over happens you will be fine

01/01/2009 mayes8384: I am in Episkopi Cyprus and can not recieve any programes, is there anything I can do to the settings so it will allow me to recieve over here?

SteveF: Sorry, the Tv tuner is for British freeview and is built to pick up those channels. It will not work in any other country.

28/11/2008 john: will it work on vista home basics

david s: yes

30/09/2008 Andy: if i got a acer travel mate 6292 can i use this ?

can it be used in any LAPTOP ?

SteveF: Yes and any new laptop would be able to use this accessory.

23/09/2008 Steve-M: Hi, would a boosted portable antenna make any difference to the picture quality compared to the supplied antenna/.

SteveF: It should do although it also depends on the strength of signal you pick up in your area.

22/09/2008 Malik: Just wanna ask that is it compatible with Mac Book or not?

peterh: Yes, using EyeTV software on the mac.

20/09/2008 anthony-g: I am an ex-pat living in Cyprus, and have an ACER ASPIRE 9301 LAPTOP. What channels would I be able to access and would I need any other equipment to use this?

Easycom: Unless you have coverage of British Digital TV in Cyprus then the product won't work. You need to use it in England.

02/09/2008 welsh--snake--666: will this work with an eee pc?

Easycom: Yes it will.

27/08/2008 ryedubs: i have a hp m7000 desktop, that has a (analogue) tv tuner in the xp media centre, will i be able to watch the digital channles through this, or will i have to watch them over the software provided? where can i get the xp drivers? Can i record one channel and watch another or do multiple recording etc?
I am ordering an aspire 7520, will it work with this too?

Easycom: This USB Tuner is Media Centre compatible :-) All drivers are supplied but more can be downloaded from the site. You can watch the same channel as you are recording, but it is only a single tuner so can not stream two channels at once. It will work great with the 7520.

21/08/2008 Jonny: Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T USB 2.0 Digital Tuner - 2940: Do I have to be connected to the net when using?


Easycom: No you dont need any internet connection.

16/08/2008 Lauren: Does this come with a remote control and if not is it compatible with any? Also does it have an EPG?

Easycom: No remote unfortunately but an EPG should be available as long as you can get the laptop on the net.

08/08/2008 ~Lucifer: Hi, Im planning on buying the Asus Eee PC 1000 Windows XP, will the digital tv tuner work with this laptop?

Easycom: Yes, a TV tuner will work with this model.

07/08/2008 nomi: Will this be compatable with my HP Pavilion dv6500?

Easycom: Yes.

06/08/2008 stu: "this tuner will work with any laptop which meets the minimum specification" And they are?

Easycom: Yes, any laptop that meets minimum spec - which is: 1.2GHz, XP or Vista, Graphics with at least 64MB, USB2.0, CD Drive (for installation)

02/08/2008 Andy M: I work in Saudi Arabia and have satellite tv decoded centrally and piped through to the aerial socket/tv in my house. If I were to plug in this device would it pick up the channels?

Easycom: I dont know, sorry.

30/07/2008 technophobe: Will this work with a DELL INSPIRON 9200?

Easycom: Yes it would - XP drivers are available.

06/07/2008 crazy: does the quality depend on the speed of my computer ?

Easycom: Not unless it's really old and slow.

18/05/2008 NP: Is the tuner compatible with any version of vista?

Easycom: Yes.

19/04/2008 Georgie: If I am in halls with hold a commercial TV license, will I need an individual license to legally use this product?

Easycom: Your hall probably has a licence covering TVs in communal areas but this won't cover a TV in your room. So if you're planning to watch TV in your room, you will need an individual licence.

03/04/2008 sonny: will this work with the acer aspire 5920. also do i need to buy some kind of video card or something or will i just plug it in and it will automatically work

Easycom: This will work fine with the 5920 - It just plugs in to the USB port and does not need additional hardware.

27/03/2008 JimmyJimBob: Why is this much cheaper than the Hauppauge Win TV HVR 900 Digital & Analogue

Easycom: Hauppauge Win TV HVR 900 recieves both analodue and Digital channels where Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T is only for digital channels and also Hauppauge Win TV HVR 900 comes with an an DVB-T antenna for mobile usage.

16/12/2007 Sontaran: I have an Acer Aspire 5630. I have had problems with the Freeview signal in my area. A previous TV-stick we bought failed to find any channels except when connected to our rooftop aerial - however, it also crashed my laptop very badly, so it may have had a problem itself. Would you recommend this device for me?

Easycom: If it is your area that struggles to receive Freeview then any device will struggle to pick up channels. This device will pick up channels available in the area, however for an improved picture we would recommend connecting to an external aerial.

14/12/2007 pjm: is this fully compatible with the acer 5920 Acer Arcade software?

Easycom: It will be fine all you need is a USB port.

09/12/2007 Ryan: how good is the aerial that comes with it

Easycom: The ariel will produce a reasonable picture depending on the signal strength, however for improved performance a fixed or portable ariel would be recommended.

15/11/2007 Luke fieldwalker: Does this product come with a remote control

Easycom: No it doesn't come with a remote control.

26/10/2007 David: Is is possible to interface this to my Sky box in order to view all Sky channels on my laptop??

Easycom: This allows the connection of an RF aerial into the device, so if your Sky box can connect through an RF Aerial instead of a scart then yes. If you cannot connect this through tan RF aerial then it wouldn't be possible.

23/10/2007 Alex: Hi

I have an Acer Aspire 1640 series laptop. Can you tell me if this will deliver a good quality picture and the freeview channels? I don't know very much about laptops but my laptop has three usb ports so would I just plug into a usb or do I need to install drivers, etc - i.e. is it easy to install and set up? Would I need another ariel or is there one included - I have checked Freeview site and I seem to be able to receive it? Any guarantees with product?

Easycom: This will allow you to receive freeview channels and is very easy to set up just plug into a free USB port.

For a better quality picture we recommend connecting a fixed or portable ariel

14/09/2007 help: which of these 2 TV tuners is better?
