USB2 TV Stick-Wont Work Properly

  belcanto 19:19 20 Jun 2006

Hi there-can anyone help, I have brought from Ebay a usb2.0 tv card dvb. It seems to work well once one gets' past the scanning only finding channels on third go. The main problem is that when it plays the tv channel, it is very choppy. Can anyone tell me why this is-the ariel I am using is the one supplied, I do not think that the tv stick connector is big enough to take a conventional ariel. Or am I missing something?

It's the signal. Bela.

You will be lucky to get a decent signal without using your external aerial.

Unless you live very close to the transmitter you won't get a decent signal on the indoor antenna supplied. Connect to an external antenna.

Sounds like you have not been supplied with an adaptor to take a normal co-ax ariel cable into your DVB stick?
