I bought something similar ( possibly even the same but not from E-Bay, but there are no pics left on the link to the advert you posted so I can't be sure ) and had the same problem.

Mine also came with Blaze HDTV player on a mini CD-ROM.

After lots of head scratching and not much help from manufacturers I have managed to get this device working on my Vista Home Premium laptop.

( I found that the manufacturer was "Afatech" and the latest Vista driver is available on their web site at :

I used the second driver package on the page for "AF9015", although I found this was identical to the one supplied on the Blaze HDTV mini CD-ROM so check your CD to see if it's there, in which case you don't need to download anything !

The CD-ROM supplied with the device, after installing the Blaze TV program, ran through a driver installation routine, installing the AF9015 BDA driver, version WHQL to the computer.

When plugging the device into the laptop, Windows automatically tried to install drivers and failed, which is why I thought the supplied drivers were not Vista compatible - NOT SO !

What you have to do when Windows fails to find the drivers, is to force a manual search for the drivers ( that were installed from the CD-ROM, or installed from the downloaded package described above ), by selecting the option to "Browse" for the drivers, then selecting the main "C:" drive with the "Check sub folders" box ticked.

This forces the computer to search every location on the computer for the drivers, which will take quite a while.
The drivers ARE eventually found ( four separate drivers are found and installed ), after which the device is recognised and works successfully :-) !

It's a shame that the installation CD-ROM doesn't include details telling you where the drivers are installed to, ( which would allow you to browse and locate them more easily ) and that Vista doesn't find them automatically, but if you follow the above it should work. :-)
