I've never seen any mention of a pre-amp for this card!


I would also be interested in the model number of the Freecom device.


Kind regards,

Could I ask the model Number of the Freecom USB's you used? I have been working sort of ok with a Nova-T 500 dula, but still get quite a few lockups.


On the original thread, I wonder if the card needs the same as the Nova-t where you have to specifically turn on the pre amp in the tuner card?

I've had better results with USB DVB-T than PCI. I've one Nova-T PCI
card and it was OK but the noise it generated upset my TV, even tough 
they were fed independently from a two output amp. I've now got a four
output amp (24 from B&Q) with three Freecom USB tuners (~20 each on
ebay). Works well, and is low power.
