i have been using a usb tv card alongside with windows media center and have had no troubles receiving freeview connected to the freeview Ariel 6 months i have had it i only have to re-tune now and then but that's due to where i get my broadcast. have a look here >>>> DVB-T Digital USB TV CARD TUNER for Freeview Laptop PC | eBay

Blackgold cards work great, however if you're using the card for tv in media centre, try DVBLink TV Source. It'll tune your card outside of MCE and should resolve the reboot issue you're having.
If you're using a low powered pc then be cautious with using a USB tuner for HD.
