This little wonder does a fantastic job of letting you watch OTA TV on your computer. With an adequate antenna, it brings in all of your local channels clearly. I would give it five stars but for two issues, one of which is significant: Problem #1: The included TV IR software runs automatically at start-up, polling continuously for updated TV programming data which is written to disk. Old data is NEVER deleted, so it will use up ALL of the available space on your hard disk fairly quickly. The only way to guard against this is to: 1. Remove it from auto-running at start-up, and/or 2. Repeatedly go to your AppData\LocalLow folder and delete the temporary files it stores there (I wrote a VBscript to do this and created a task in Task Scheduler to run it every 10 minutes). Problem #2: The connector of the included antenna would not fit on the coaxial connector of the tuner dongle, so I had to use a different antenna. I have not tried recording shows, even after several years of use.

Not work. Plug-in win7 not recognized the device. istall arsoft sofware say it can not see the product any where. Junk does not worth $10 to pay to UPS to return the unit.

Works fine on my Win 8.1, after uninstalling the similar one and reinstalling it, then they both worked. Be careful though, if it is broken upon arrival they don't respond to your email for fix or return or credit...

I've been using mine for several years, now and I love the extremely high def picture and stereo sound on my dual core HP computer. There is one small problem, however. Whenever I run my anti-spyware/virus removal program it removes the drivers to the stick and the software. So when I try to start up Total Media I get a non compatibility window. You have to remove Total Media software and reload all the software again...which takes almost an hour. I've had to to this about 4 times now. It gets old.

received this and manually installed driver from the CD using device manager (didn't run setup or use the included software). windows media center finds all 31 channels my LG tv finds. signal shows about the same as the tv as well. I also have a hauppauge wintv-hvr-1600 that is a few years old, it only picks up about 8 channels using the same cable/antenna as this. needless to say I'm happy with this product. hopefully it will last, only time will tell. buying 2 of these is 1/3 cheaper than buying a dual tuner pcie card.

I ordered this TV tuner to use with a Windows 7 64 bit notebook computer. My last experience with TV tuners was on my desktop and the tuner was a PCI card. It worked great. I can't say the same for this USB tuner. The installation was easy but the software does not seem very user friendly. I could have lived with the software but what I could not live with was the conflicts the software caused with my mouse and keyboard. I had to uninstall the software to get my mouse and keyboard working again. The included antenna did not pickup any stations (I don't get a good signal so it could have been my location). Maybe this tuner would work better on a different computer with a different operating system but I'm not willing to try again. It will be returned.

a little difficult to start up; highly recommend buying a better digital antenna; the one provided is tiny for picking up a signal

Mygica HDTV tuner on 3/21/2014

Works as advertised. Downloaded driver from CD went to Windows Media Center setup, setup couldn't find tuner so I chose find tuner manually, found tuner that way. Didn't use antenna supplied because I have external antenna taped to my window on the 14th floor of my apartment, did scan for stations picked up 30. IR receiver in tuner is useless because every time I use the remote for my tv the screen on my laptop turns on (in screen saver mode after 10 minutes of inactivity) So far nothing else is activated on my laptop when remote from my tv is pressed. Tried to uninstall the IR program but then the tuner could no longer be found in Windows Media Center. ended up re-installing the tuner driver and re setting up the tuner. Overall this tuner is great except for the IR program.
