Thanks for your reply. I've seen the Digitelmo for €14,95 a while ago,
but I would really like a USB stick.
I wanted to buy the Freecom but was checking out if the seller was
reliable - and at the same time he upped the price from €20 to €30.
Knowing what profit he makes now I feel less like buying :-(.
Does anyone know if the following device would work:
ZAP-TV240M)? The 250M is supported but twice as expensive.
