If you have a Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner from Jaycar, you might need to install the XC4888 software driver on your PC to make it work properly. The driver is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. Here are the steps to download and install the driver:
Go to the Jaycar website and search for the product code XC4888. You should see the product page for the Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner.
Click on the "Downloads" tab and download the file named "XC4888.zip". This is the driver file that you need.
Extract the zip file to a folder on your PC. You should see a folder named "XC4888" with several files inside.
Plug in your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner to a USB port on your PC. Windows should detect it and try to install it automatically.
If Windows fails to install it or asks for a driver, go to the Device Manager and find the device under "Sound, video and game controllers". It might be labeled as "USB Device" or "Unknown Device". Right-click on it and select "Update Driver Software".
Select "Browse my computer for driver software" and then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Click on "Have Disk" and browse to the folder where you extracted the XC4888.zip file. Select the file named "XC5000.inf" and click on "Open".
Click on "OK" and then "Next". Windows should install the driver and recognize your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner as "XC5000 Device".
Now you can use your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner with any compatible software, such as Windows Media Center, VLC or Kodi. Enjoy watching digital TV on your PC!

If you want to watch digital TV on your PC using Windows Media Center, you need to set up your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner as a TV signal source. Here are the steps to do that:
Open Windows Media Center and go to "Tasks" and then "Settings".
Click on "TV" and then "TV Signal".
Click on "Set Up TV Signal" and follow the instructions on the screen. Windows Media Center will scan for available TV channels and add them to your guide.
When the setup is complete, you can go back to the main menu and click on "Live TV" to start watching digital TV on your PC.
You can also record TV shows, schedule recordings, pause and rewind live TV, and more using Windows Media Center. For more information, check out the Windows Media Center help page.

If you prefer to use VLC or Kodi instead of Windows Media Center, you can also watch digital TV on your PC using your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner. Both VLC and Kodi are free and open-source media players that support a variety of formats and features.
To watch digital TV on your PC using VLC, you need to open the VLC media player and go to "Media" and then "Open Capture Device". In the "Capture mode" section, select "DVB DirectShow". In the "Device selection" section, select your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner as the "Video device name" and the "Audio device name". In the "DVB-T" section, enter the frequency of the channel you want to watch. You can find the frequency of each channel on the Jaycar website or by using a TV guide app. Click on "Play" and VLC should start playing the channel.
To watch digital TV on your PC using Kodi, you need to install a PVR add-on that supports your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner. One such add-on is NextPVR, which you can download from the Kodi website. After installing NextPVR, you need to run it and configure it to use your Digitech Dvb-t USB TV tuner as a source. You also need to scan for channels and set up an EPG (electronic program guide) to see what's on. Once NextPVR is set up, you can open Kodi and go to "Add-ons" and then "My add-ons". Select "PVR clients" and then "NextPVR". Enable the add-on and restart Kodi. You should now see a "TV" option on the main menu. Click on it and you can start watching digital TV on your PC. ec8f644aee
