This is a little difficult to get working so here is the fix.  After this you can use it in Media Center without problems.

Download the Vista driver for the DVB-T from Freecom’s website. Currently the link is this:

  • Unzip the driver to a folder on your hard drive
  • Go to Control Panel,  Device manager and choose the USB stick, this will probably have an exclamation mark next to it.
  • Right click and select “Update driver”Select “Browse”
  • Choose “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”
  • Choose “Sound, Video Gamecontrollers” and click on “Have Disk”
  • Navigate to the unzipped driver and install.

Fire up the Windows Media Center to setup the stick there and watch TV!
