Another one I bought at the same time for my old Windows XP laptop has also been a bit flaky at times but generally seems OK. There was a problem loading the comments at the moment. So, providing you put a main aerial into it, it will work.

I have used them before and will again — at least you know you can shop with confidence. I’m not sure if this is related to media center codecs or just the usb receiver in general is bad.
As for the provided aerial Frseview think as another reviewer has mentioned that you would have to be very close to the transmitter to pick anything up. The version i bought which is presumably the same version you will get was the 3.
