Guys ask u all

Today i try my tunner

1# I got Ch 5 HD . But it state not available

then at 11# I got Ch 5 SD (non HD ok can watch)

12# I got Ch 5 HD again . Got image but no sound

Is it normal ?
Is your tuner DVB-T2 ready?

Can you receive digital Okto, Ch U, Suria and Vasantham channels? It seems to me that you are receiving only programs from Ch 38 (DVB-T) channel. Reception for this channel is terrible and will be phased out once DVB-T2 is fully rolled out.

Safer to get a active one. Not expensive if get from web. Staying at level 5. Nearby building up to level 8. Still need active antenna near window to get good reception.
Yeah i understand but no harm spending $1-2 DIYing one. If it really works, maker benefits. If not, just move on and get an active antenna. And this also tells maker how well the reception is in his/her area.

$1-2 can buy a passive dvb t antenna from ebay, worthwhile to try. Good active antenna is expensive, those cheaper active antenna might give other problems.

Just get Funkie 5.1 and it is cheap at $59. A simple lunch will cost around $60. It has no problem.

Hi, what is active or passive? My antenna has a plug for me to plug into socket, that is active antenna? However, i disconnect that plug and just use 1 cable to connect to tv and it still works. So this is consider passive antenna setup?

yes, you can sell away your active antenna and replace it by a $2 passive antenna.

The $2 antenna might work better compared to your active antenna without power. But the signal in your house is strong enough, so still can recieve properly with your unpowered active antenna.

Most STB can do recording (PVR) but some have copy protection, ie. recorded video can only be played on the device itself not PC.

As to where and pricing, it depend on your budget. Branded one can cost $80 to over $100 and can be found in most retailers like Courts, HN or NTUC Xtra. Cheapo one costing around $20 can be found in Qoo10, Lazada or Aliexpress (Tabao).
