Turn your laptop into a TV, PC into a media centre, desk into a cinema! The DVB-T202 allows you to watch and record up to 70 channels on your computer. Offering the best reception of the TV tuner sticks we've tested, this sleek little dongle from August is simple to use and effective.

Setting up the DVB-T202 is simple. Just insert the CD or download the software from the August website and follow the instructions on screen. When you're done, plug the device into a USB port, attach the aerial and scan for channels.

Not only can you watch and record TV, you can also use the software to timeshift your viewing, pausing a live broadcast and returning later. This is ideal if the phone rings or you want to make a cup of tea.

Pick and plan your viewing with the uer friendly EPG, turn on subtitles where they've been provided and sit back, relax and watch TV from the comfort of your sofa using the supplied remote control to change channels.

Excellent product Review by PETER
Bought from Amazon on a Friday, delivered on the Saturday morning. Marvellous.

I downloaded and installed the S/W from Daffodil`s website onto a 1GHz netbook in order to get the most recent version. I took the little laptop to a spot where I knew there would be line-of-sight to a transmitter and fired it up. First scan resulted in 79 channels being found using the supplied aerial mounted to the roof of the car.

Everything ran smoothly and I am very happy with my purchase. The caveat is that reception depends on getting a good signal to begin with but this applies to any receiver. If you can`t get a quality result from this tuner it`s not the device`s fault. No connection to Daffodil etc. (Posted on 12/10/2013)
Cracking little dongle! Review by James
Ordered this on a Tuesday afternoon and it was with me the next day, by Royal Mail first class, so first off, thanks for the service!

Now the device, its small, about the length of a matchbox and feels solid, a USB connector at one end and an aerial connection at the other. Unlike some other sticks I've tried the connection will take a standard TV aerial plug so that's a bonus.

Set up was simple, just stuck in the CD, ran through the on screen instructions, connected the stick and scanned for channels, it found over 60 stations on the first attempt so I'm more than happy with that. (I used an amplified aerial and haven't tried the one supplied)

Picture quality is great, the software is intuitive and easy to use, pausing and rewinding TV and recording straight shows to watch later is simple.

All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and the service received. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking to watch TV on a PC. (Posted on 17/03/2012)
