Had this lying around for ages after I lost the CD and the HDD with the drivers/ media software.

Been looking around the web but getting bored trying to find a DVB veiwer - ie, something to watch it on. Everything I've found so far seems to want $99.

Anyone care to point me in the right direction?

yeeeeees.... got them, thats the drivers but you then need software to actually watch TV - its cheaper to buy a new stick bundled with software than it is to find new stuff.

Windows Media Centre (if you have it in your windows XP media centre or Vista Home Premium/Ultimate/..)

MediaPortal
ORB
GB-PVR
MythTV


I think you'll want to be using the BDA version of the driver for these.

Just tried GB-PVR myself,
I had previously tried it and it didn't work for me, but now. It all works, looks so much better and was pretty easy (i.e. no fiddling needed :( ), though I do know what some of it means.
