Install dvb-apps from the repositories

sudo apt-get install dvb-apps

Check dmesg to ensure the TV stick is being recognised, if it has a light make sure it is powering up.

Not the answer to your question, but ....

Install Me-TV and scan for channels from within the program.

Kaffeine is also a very good way of watching TV and has it's own channel scanner, but will install a lot of KDE libraries.

Both allow watching and recording of programs

You have to stop thinking like a Windows person. You do not download a file then install it, you use a package manager.

From the top toolbar

System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager

Put in your password when prompted.

Use the search button (not quick search) to look for dvb-apps then click on the empty box on the left of the entry and click on Mark for Installation

Then click on Apply in the same toolbar as search. The program will be downloaded and installed in one go.

Then search just for DVB and you will find a wonderland of Digital TV applications.

ps. You can install a downloaded app using GDebi from inside Nautilus but I suggest you leave that alone for now until you know more about Linux and Ubuntu.
