D-Link DWM-T100
If watching free to air TV on the go is what you’ve been wanting to do then Harvey Norman have marked down the D-Link microUSB TV Tuner to a super cheap $14 until the 29th of September.

The deal is crazy cheap considering the $49.95 RRP on the TV Tuner which Harvey Norman usually has on the device. The dongle provides DVB-T terrestrial tv service through the D-Link TV Tuner Android app available in Google Play. The dongle comes with a loop antenna for on the go, or an F-Type antenna converter to hook up to co-ax cable at home.

The app though has limitations – it doesn’t work at all on Nougat devices I tried it on, but did work on the Galaxy S6 running Marshmallow. There are some pretty heavy limitations on that loop antenna too, I’ve only ever gotten it working with line of sight to a TV broadcast antenna – basically sitting looking at Telstra tower in Canberra, anywhere else was a bust.

The app is pretty decent though allowing you access to a full Electronic Program Guide, as well as Time-Shift recording with the ability to pause and rewind live TV and record on a schedule or on-demand and Automatic TV Channel search.

It’s not a bad deal for $14 though with a microUSB connection you’ll need a microUSB to USB-C converter for any newer type devices you have and even then if your device is running Nougat you’re out of luck.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

One thing I wanted to say is the antenna loop is just terrible when I have tried it and recommend getting any other option. I am looking to see if you can buy an a small portable option that used the smaller connector but have not found one yet.

Hi guys I have not tried yet on my brothers Nexus 9 but I think you can possibly still use it on an N device you just have to use a different app. If you search the market for TV tuner and look at all of the apps you will notice at least 1 app called PadTV which would seem to be software written for the exact same device just under a different name. I have installed it on another tablet that was crashing when using the D-Link version and it worked fine. The best thing is it seems to… Read more »

You can connect this to your TV antenna with an adaptor. It would turn just about any old phone or tablet into a PVR.

I clicked the bottom link “D-Link TV Tuner (Play Store)” and got the following error…

You probably can but I can’t think of a reason why you would want to? If your shield is connected to a tv you already have Digital tv. Unless your talking about using a projector or a large monitor.
