If you have usb dvb-t stick and need some robust program to watch digital tv on your computer, then VideoLan is the best choice.
It has built-in codecs so you don’t have to worry about installing them. It even has rare h.264 codec to watch digital tv in countries where H.264/MPEG-4 AVC standard exists.
So to watch DVB-T with VLC media player you have to push Media->Open Capture Device. From Capture mode select DVB direct show
Fore the card selection choose DVB-T.
However VLC isn’t very user frinedly and doesn’t provide autoscan channels feature so you have to put correct Transponder frequency and Bandwith values You can find those values from your included dvb-t player program or check dvb-t provider’s website for details.
Press Play and if the frequency is found you will see digital TV on your computer screen.
Tip: If you don’t see the channel instantly you could navigate to Playback->Program and see the list of channels from the same frequency. Some encoded channels will not display any window and thus looks like there is no signal.
