Hi, not understood - does your tv stick not show up when you plug it into usb port?

Hmm, did a bit of research re Vista (I have XP) - came up with this, not good news I'm afraid ...

Here is word of warning to all Vista users. This product currently does not work properly with Windows Vista. You need to download beta drivers from Freecom website and update the Video software from Arctec to be able to use the product.

Currently the product does not work with Vista Media Center, as it is able to tune the tv channels but it does not show them when trying to view live TV. Presumely this will be fixed when the actual drivers for Vista are released.

Sorry if this has already been checked but did you look at the Vista driver on freecom's website? I use my dvb-t usb stick on Vista with the tv viewing program that comes with it and it works perfectly well.

Thanks Jimmy14, I have pointed out your note to annimated. Cheers.

That driver must have only just been put there, I had looked recently.

Double-click on the zip file and follow the on-screen prompts to probably save the unzipped files to your desktop, from where you should be able to install the driver. At least that is the usual route, though I have not done it myself for some time now.

I have tried to install the new drivers etc supplied by Freecom but they do not work. I have exchanged emails with the company and they have tried to help but so far unsuccesfully. To give the latest example the last advice received was:

DVB-T etc
wnload & unzip the drivers to a folder on your c drive
For the Total Media 3 software
Please go to : click here (in your web browser)
Enter as user = dvb
Password = 12345
Go for total media 3
& download the zip, this can take awhile
Also on the same site as above
Choose the uninstaller under the DVB heading
& download & unzip this(contains 5 uninstalls)
Go to device manager
Right click on the stick & choose uninstall
Put a tick on the uninstall drivers box
Disconnect the stick
Remove any software you have installed(eg total media or DVB-T player)
via the control panel
Then run all 5 of the uninstalls
Turn off the pc(not restart)
Boot the pc
Connect the stick
Direct windows to look in the folder you unziped the drivers to on your
c drive
Install the total media 3 software

This has not worked either and I await their further help.

I do not think they have resovled the issue with Vista yet but if anyone has been succesful I would be grateful for a step by step guide as I am sure Freecom would too.
