Nice GUI but as taz said, scanning for DVBT channels is a definite showstopper, no option to scab all channels ... And it closed down unexpectedly.
ProgDVB with Dscaler decoder (both free) works very well on my Haupauge DVBT tuner.

For a freebie, this is actually quite neat. Certainly better than the Hauppage DVB-T software for viewing Freeview, which is a complete mess and a nightmare to use.

My only quibble with this one is that it's fiddly to scan and load in channels - the documentation, while nice, doesn't actually go far enough. It took go a good quarter hour to work out why I was viewing my webcam even though I was selecting Freeview channels to watch.

Actually, it wasn;t my only quibble - heres another: It would be nice if there was a simple 'Freeview' selection button for scanning for channels - not everyone knows which 'network' they should be choosing - spending up to half an hour going through every network option scanning for channels is a real pain.

Despite the gripes, this is a neat looking little bit of software. Could be better, but i can't grumble about something thats free.
