  • DVB-S/DVB-S2 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-NOVA-HD-S2 for TV with the Windows XP Media Center application (DVB-S only and will require a patch from our website) a Media Center certified DVD or MPEG-2 software decoder is required.
