Is this what you're talking about?

EZTV858 MPEG-4 USB DVB-T TV Stick products, buy EZTV858 MPEG-4 USB DVB-T TV Stick products from alibaba.com

It doesn't show up here though,

Windows 7 Compatibility for EZTV858 : Drivers, Updates, Downloads

What's the brand name and any other info you can share, maybe we can narrow it down.

Describe your TV connection setup. (Cable, over the air, satellite.)

No I just got the USB DVB-T Stick (I'm from Croatia) and I can watch TV normally but remote isn't working... and my connection scheme is like this:
Notebook -> USB DVB-T <- Portable Antenna

Where is the remote sensor? on the stick?

Are you watching TV in media center or in the program it self?

Media center should have asked if you had a remote.

Are you still using the build in your specs (7137) ? or updated version.

Thanks.

The reason I asked is that even a lot of Media Center remotes don't get along with Media Center if you're on a satellite or using a cable box. Over the air should not be a problem.

Continuing my new policy of asking dumb questions, are the batteries the right way around in the remote?

No I'm using updated (final) version...
I don't know where is the sensor (I tried pressing buttons while remote turned to USB and PC) but nothing...
Media center haven't asked me about remote control...

@profdlp
I checked battery I got it in remote... and it's rounded one

Have you run the setup wizard for Media Center?

Does your stick have these holes?

Try pointing your remote at that part of the stick.
