Personally, I am not best pleased with the kit. I installed the drivers and software without incident. On windows its ok and does work but the software is a bit clunky.

Recommended to me by someone who also thought pretty highly of these widgets. Have to play back recordings thru August TV software as does not like Windows Media Centre no sound but this doesn’t matter Quality of recordings as per original.

The disc is brand new and states suitable for windows 8. Removing duplicates we get both Southern and London here ; the radio programmes; the shopping channels and others I will never watch, left me with about 35 channels. Upon completion of the tuning, there were just 70 channels found including radio of course.

But since I run it on a Raspberry Pi B2 its just incredible. Then it worked like a charm. I plugged in the coaxial wire coming straight from my roof antenna and booster.

One person found this helpful. Item arrived very promptly I only gave 2 stars because of Daffodil, the item alone would get a lower score. The wine met my expectations, the dongle was much better than I expected. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.
