Default Digital TV Tuner

Hello, I have a USB WandTV DVB-T digital TV tuner. I lost the software CD that contained the drivers and capture software. I'm trying to use it with my netbook. Windows 7 found and installed the drivers. Now I just need the appropriate software for watching TV. I've been playing around the settings in VLC but have been unsuccessful.

Anyone have any tips?

If you have windows 7, why not just use media center? Works great for me.

I have Windows 7 Starter.

I eventually found the box but not the CD. Box said it came with BlazeDTV but it's commercial software and I didn't find the license anywhere, it's probably with the CD.

There are lots of free/open source media center programs out there. My favorite is MythTV. You'll need to compile it for Windows or try one of the unofficial binaries. This is the only one I've had any luck with. http://members.iinet.net.au/~davco/

Mediaportal ( http://www.team-mediaportal.com/ ) also seems pretty good, though I haven't extensively used it.
