Turn your laptop into a TV, PC into a Media Centre, Desk into a cinema, the DVB-T202 allows you to watch and record digital TV on your PC. Offering the best reception of any of the TV tuner sticks we've tested, this sleek little dongle from August is as simple to use as it is effective.

USB powered, setting up is a doddle, just put the CD in the drive (or download the software and drivers from August's website if your using a netbook), follow the step by step on screen instructions, plug it into your USB port attach an aerial and scan the airwaves for digital channels.

Not only can you watch and record TV, you can also use the software to Time-Shift your viewing, this means you can pause eastenders when the phone goes and rewind and watch the goal you missed when it was your turn to get the teas in.

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)
