To view TV you should close the window where you scanned for the 
channels. Then at the kaffeine start screen select the digital TV button 
and it should display the first channel.

If that works, you can try to scan again with the antenna at a different 
location (I suppose you use the small whip antenna which probably came 
with the device). If you are not really close to the transmitter, the 
antenna location may be critical.
