Sad, no one willing to share their experience!

Temporary using the antenna that came with NMS STB which have better signal gain compared to the cheapo $2 antenna. But don't see any different when supplying power to antenna, yet to try the USB power ejector that came with it.

I am using this antenna from eBay for my K2. So far so good.

Thanks for sharing.

This is the cheapo antenna (the one with single wire attachment) I am referring to. It is good in area with good signal coverage otherwise it fair poorly in my case. FYI, I am using this same antenna in living room with good result.

I came across this antenna before, not sure how good is the reception. Please confirm if this is an active antenna? Tks.

HI Albert Lee, I guess active antenna means it has a booster that requires electricity. For this one, it is not an active antenna but using outdoor is good.

Thanks buddy.

In that case, can rule out this antenna model as the TV location is at a corner of the room about 2m to the windows.

albertlee, where can I purchase the Huayu RM-D1155+5 remote control to operate both TV and K2 / K3 concurrently?

I can't seem to find it at lazada or shopee.

This is the seller I got it from. The price has gone up, I got it for less than $4 with free shipping via courier.

I have no doubt this antenna will work with no issue as long as the location of the antenna have good signal coverage or is near the windows.

On shopee, just search with keywords, DVB-T2 remote control.

When I used the 5dBi passive one ($2 cheapo one) in one of the room, the signal sometime freezes. However, after changing to this 30dBi passive one, no more freezing. Hope this help.

You may want to consider amplifying the antenna signal using HDTV amplifier. Just search HDTV amplifier in eBay or Shopee.

Just to add, a lot of sellers in Shopee tend to post false advertisement, i.e. what you buy is not what you get. Just ask Kiwi8, he got duped twice!

If you see "WT7n" anywhere in the item description then is likely not the Huayu RM-D1155+5 model.

Thanks for the recommendation. Will give this a go but wonder how the internal build is like to be able to achieve 30dBi gain? As for the signal amplifier, would have prefer it came embedded in the antenna itself and able to get power from the STB.
