I wanted a small “always on top” window in the corner so I could watch TV while I was working. I have found that the final DVD video picture quality is excellent this way. Generally speaking the software that comes with it is awful; I have trouble with nearly every aspect. Will locate all channels and if I scroll through the channels it’ll display full signal strength and quality but not display any video. People grumble about the aerial and receiver not being able to receive very well. One minor gripe though – automatic daylight saving when the clocks go forward or backward will screw up your schedules as the TMMonitor seems linked intrinsically to the system clock – so be aware if you’re recording a weekly or daily programme, you’ll need to reschedule your recordings once the clocks have changed. Here’s a look at the features and specifications of the Freecom Digital T Freeview receiver:

Used to work fine but moved to another flat with much better signal and is dodgy.
Zowie P-TF Rough mousepad. Puts the windows software to shame. Ozone Rage ST headset. Purchased a booster ariel but same result.
We live about a mile from the two regional transmitters so signal is exceptionally strong. I wish I’d never got involved.
DV Hardware review – Freecom DVB-T USB Stick
The sofware is rubbish. Picture quality in Linux beats the windows bundled software. The software that comes with it does not working with Vista.
I had similar problems with using the Windows Media Centre in Vista – found all the channels but only 4 would work. Digitisation of the UK television infrastructure will see the end of the analogue service by I have purchased a much bigger and amplified aerial which does the job where the signal is reasonable.

The capture files are MPEG x RF attentuators are available at maplins and cost a few pounds. In our house we needed to gang together two RF attenuators a 12dB and a 6dB before the stick would work. After going up channels and back down the stock again it’ll suddenly find the video again!
The end result is a really useful combination even if it took a little research to get freeco, the software together. Jaybird Freedom 2 wireless sport headphones. I would recommend buying another brand, as support requests that aren’t ignored by Freecom are unlikely to be answered in a satisfactory manner.
File sizes are perfectly manageable around 2Gb for an hourand there’s no tweaking needed unlike my last attempt using Hauppague which devoured HD space at a staggering 1Gb a minute!!
Had 2 swaps and still the same.

People grumble about the aerial and receiver not being able to receive very well. It can’t see a single channel, sgick when plugged into the same antenna as my Sony set-top box that has excellent reception on all Midhurst channels. However most of these restrictions are resolved by simply connecting an indoor TV aerial into the adapter between the aerial cable and the stick itself. The rest never worked.

The solution is to get an attenuator or two to sit between the stick and the aerial line. I have found that the final DVD video picture quality is excellent this way. What a load of rubbish!!!!
Free software such as VirtualDubMod can with the appropriate codecs open and edit the files. It sounds like your signal is too strong and is overloading the dvb-T sticks very basic amplifier ie it can’t reduce the signal enough so its clipping.

A very disappointed an angry customer!
