- You can watch television very cheaply in Europe with this dongle.
- Supports HDTV.
- It installs in a snap. Plug and Play if you're using Windows. New drivers are released through Windows Update.
- The included software (BlazeHDTV, full version) is quite good. Even better is ProgDVB, which is free and can be downloaded from the internet.
- Works with Media Portal, you can use as many of these dongles as you like.
- (Experimental) linux support (see cons).
- No CI or CAM, so only FTA (Free To Air, mostly national channels) by default. This can be resolved by buying a smartcard reader and using software like acamd and cccam or newcs.
- (Experimental) linux support (see pros).
Check out the article on Wikipedia on DVB-T to see if your country uses the standard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVB-T
This is a BDA device. That means you will be using software to decode the video or decrypt the signal. Any 3 year old computer can handle that. So, if you want to build an HTPC cheaply, use these.
