Turn your laptop into a TV, PC into a Media Centre, Desk into a cinema, the DVB-T202 allows you to watch and record digital TV on your PC. Offering the best reception of any of the TV tuner sticks we've tested, this sleek little dongle from August is as simple to use as it is effective.

USB powered, setting up is a doddle, just put the CD in the drive (or download the software and drivers from August's website if your using a netbook), follow the step by step on screen instructions, plug it into your USB port, attach an aerial and scan the airwaves for digital channels.

Not only can you watch and record TV, you can also use the software to Time-Shift your viewing, this means you can pause eastenders when the phone goes and rewind and watch the goal you missed when it was your turn to get the teas in.

Pick and plan your viewing with the user friendly EPG, turn on subtitles where they've been provided and sit back, relax and watch TV from the comfort of your sofa using the supplied remote control to change channels.

Please be advised that Freeview reception is affected by various factors such as your proximity to a transmitter, tall buildings, thick walls, ceilings, weather etc. We advise that you connect the TV receiver to a rooftop aerial for the initial channel scan, after saving the channels you can then use the receiver in different locations to test the signal strength. To improve reception, a portable aerial with signal booster may help; we recommend the August DTA225 and DTA245.

Why doesn't the LED light up?
There is no LED on the DVB-T202, the plastic panel is the infra-red receiver.

The software cannot detect the device.
Please reinstall the driver. To do this, open device manager, find the T202 in "Sound, video and game controllers", right click on it and click uninstal. Once this has completed, unplug and replug the tuner. Then follow the onscreen instructions to reinstall the driver.

Why isn’t the remote control working?
Please change the battery of the remote control. If this does not solve the issue, please use a digital camera screen to see if the IR lights up once a button is pressed.
