:thumbsup: I recently purchased one of these USB freeview tv tuner which came complete with an aerial, driver disc & Blaze HDTV media player which has its own serial key.
All drivers and software have been installed correctly.
I have tried the aerial that came with it and a genuine freeview aerial that is in the loft that is usually connected to a set top box(receives loads of channels) and still the damn thing says NO SIGNAL!
Two questions,
1) There is an infa-red receiver and what looks like a Clear LED on the USB tuner, is this suppose to illuminate if connected?
2)Any person had any problems with these dongles? If so what did you do to make the damn thing work?
:huh:

I assume so as everything else that has that illuminates once powered.

2)Any person had any problems with these dongles? If so what did you do to make the damn thing work?

Never used one so i have no idea, sorry.

Hi Gaz, :thumbsup: to the forum!

I take it your from the UK, when you refere to 'Freeview'? If so your in the same part of the World as I.

Before we can concentrate on your problem we need a few details,
- Are you using a laptop or desktop computer?
- What operating system are you using
- What is the make and model of the USB TV stick are you using
- Have you looked on the company's website (USB TV stick) for updated drivers and addtional info regarding your problem?

Hope this helps so far...!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
