  • For Freeview HD and Freeview Digital Terrestrial reception, a high gain aerial is recommended. The WinTV-HVR-5525 uses a rooftop aerial for DVB-T reception in the same way that most people currently receive their analogue television programmes. Some viewers will need to replace their aerials to receive digital transmissions if the installation is old or in poor condition. Digital Terrestrial coverage is improving all the time as digital terrestrial television transmitters are continuously being updated. However it may take some time for coverage to reach particular areas of the country. To check if you receive a digital transmission in your area, input your Post Code at:
  • DVB-S/DVB-S2/DVB-T Radio is not DAB Radio.
  • For Digital Satellite reception, your satellite dish must be aimed at a satellite which is transmitting free-to-air Sat TV. For example, Astra and Eutelsat provide free-to-air satellite channels.
  • Some HD Digital Satellite channels are available on Astra and Eutelsat (via DVB-S2 transmission).
  • To use the WinTV-HVR-5525 for TV with the Windows XP Media Center application (DVB-T/Analogue, DVB-S will also work but will require a patch from our website) a Media Center certified DVD or MPEG-2 software decoder is required. If you are building a Media Center PC, refer Microsoft's web site for a list of Media Center certified DVD decoders. The Windows Media Center application is included with Windows 8 Media Center package, Windows 7, Windows XP Media Center, Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Home Premium editions only.
