I installed it on my Toshiba lappie, XP, yesterday, (connected to the external antenna on the roof) set my region to Australia, did the channel scan thing and it only found the 7 SBS channels, which were all excellent quality. Is it possible that I would need to set my region to something local, like Melbourne or VIctoria. (the drop down menu only lists countries as a region option). Is there something I am doing wrong?

SBS is on UHF.

Australia has bands of VHF and UHF. 9/7/10/2 are VHF.

VHF could be a reception issue in your area. Aerial booster for VHF or high gain aerial to target VHF.

This device works on the margins very well - it aren't a "deaf" device for reception.

The channel search is thorough on this device.

The drop down menu is good to go for all of Australia by regions.

Can anyone recommend a decent PCI/e DVB-C card?
One that has verified support with Linux & ideally is available for purchase in Oz.

I have a few candidates, just curious to hear other peoples experiences.

I would prefer also that it was "dual"...
I've looked everywhere and I fear such a best does not exist.
