    My 2 cents concerning reception: this little device will receive the same channels any other big freeview box will receive with th My 2 cents concerning reception: this little device will receive the same channels any other big freeview box will receive with the same antenna. If an indoor aearial is good enough where you live, then you will pull in all the channels with the deluxe as well, no problem.

    Althogh the size of the tuner (minature as you can see from the pictures) is impressive, I am much more impressed with the EyeTV software that comes with it. Through the integrated program guide you can have you favorite shows automatically recorded or create "smart guides" to record shows based on different filters you set. I hardly watch live TV anymore because I just let EyeTV record everything I enjoy watching. When you do watch live tv, you can pause and rewind. There are almost too many other features to talk about like cutting out commercials, exporting into all kinds of formats, full screen menu etc.. I also have the iPhone app which lets me stream TV from my home computer to my iPhone when I'm travelling (how cool is that???). This is by far the best software I have ever seen for bringing TV onto a computer, and I've tried quite a few. Highly recommend this product.

Unfortunately, the centre of a big city - like London - is exactly the sort of situation and location that all receivers struggle with.

    In fact, there are not "multiple high power transmitters" - there are just a few - with a number of other low power repeaters. Added to that, there are many high buildings that reflect transmitted signals - with both constructive and destructive interference.

    There are many locations in London where reception of terrestrial signals is just not possible - with any kit. DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) has a transmission method that combats multi-path interference, whereas DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) does not.

    In some situations, the physical location of the antenna can make a big difference. Even as little as a few feet can have a big effect - and sometimes different locations suit different channels (multiplexes) better.

    You could try adding a USB extender cable in line with the device - meaning that you can change the location of the antenna whilst keeping your Mac in a suitable place for viewing.

    It appears that they've made it so small that its just plain unreliable.

    The main use I use it for is plugged into a Mac Mini, which then outputs my TV programs I've missed to my iPhone. It is great at doing this when the software works.
    But, quite often you can come home to no recording at all, because the software has failed to update the DVB guide on its own.

    Terrible piece of software, terrible hardware. I just wish someone else would enter the TV tuner market for Apple so Elgato got some decent competition and raised their game.

    I bought this as a bit of an experiment and I have to say I'm pretty happy with the results. It found all the French TNT stations I bought this as a bit of an experiment and I have to say I'm pretty happy with the results. It found all the French TNT stations very quickly and the quality is excellent. The hardware is small and robust and that software is easy to use, though the vendor is a bit precious on S/W unlock keys etc. Since their software is tied to the H/W insofar as one without the other is useless I thought that was a bit silly. All in all a good buy. I'm going to buy another one one for my daughter. No need for her to waste space in her student accommodation with a TV, her MacBook and this will do fine :-)

    Set up is a doddle it found 90+ channels on the first scan, although BBC 1 & 2 wouldn't play. This was sorted after running an exhaustive scan.
    I did try to see what channels it would pick up with the mobile antenna, but sadly it failed to find any at all despite this being an excellent area for a signal.
    The bundled software is superb and is easy to use.
    My main complaint is that the remote won't work unless I'm within 3ft of my computer which makes it pretty pointless.

    All in all it does what I want it to do, but I fully sympathise those who need to use this as a mobile device because it just doesn't work unless connected to a large antenna.
