That's because the lock signal is currently faked, i.e. it will always
indicate a correct "lock".

What I can tell you from personal experience is that the short stick antenna
is *not* sufficient to receive DVB-T correctly in my place (uk-WinterHill).
You could try to connect a roof antenna to your stick and then see whether
you can get a correct reception in Windows. And after that is working you
could try it out in Kaffeine.
