Just to clarify my position re Windows 8 and the Dexatek/DVBWorld drivers and software, I only have them working on my backup 32 bit Windows 8 system.

Attempting to run Dexatek/DVBWorld drivers on Windows 8 64-bit not only proved impossible but seriously corrupted my Windows 8 start up and as I had downloaded the operating system from the internet ( for �24 ) without a back-up disc I lost the whole operating system.

I am now running Windows 7 64-bit on that computer and would not recommend you even try using Dexatek/DVBWorld boxes on Windows 8 64-bit as there are serious risks. Lets get a reality check with these boxes, you need 5/6 year old drivers to get them to work on Windows 7 64-bit and there has been no updated drivers /software since Vista !!!

running for a few hours so far, so perhaps there are some surprises in
store! But they have worked for at least two others (Graham Woolf and Ian
