  • DVB-T/T2 or Analogue TV reception requires a TV aerial (a high gain rooftop aerial is recommended). If you have a cable or satellite TV box, Windows Media Center will need to use the “IR blaster” to control the box for channel changing.
  • 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.
  • DVB-C is not currently supported with Windows Media Center.
  • For Digital Terrestrial reception, some viewers may need to replace their aerials 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 full coverage to reach particular areas of the country./
  • An Internet connection is required for the Windows Media Center EPG service.
  • For Singapore residence, some DVB-T/T2 reception with indoor antenna might be impaired by walls and high neighboring buildings/structures/trees. In such environments, an outdoor / roof-top DVB-T antenna is recommended. If you are using roof-top antenna with amplified signal, in theory, you should not encounter any reception problem and you should be able to receive all free-to-air DVB-T/T2 channels available in Singapore.
  • 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.
  • For optimal reception of DVB-T/T2 channels with any indoor antenna (DVB-T/T2 compatible), you have to be in a location with minimum disturbance on the DVB-T signal.
