Both DSC250 and DSC550 has the same 33dB gain whilst the one from NMS has 36dB. No idea if the 3dB gain made any difference or not. I just got my NMS bundle via normal mail but haven't had the time to try out.
Yeah, the NMS antenna has a higher dB gain than the Funke, but shouldn't be much of a difference.

The thing is the NMS antenna need to stick on the wall, while the Funke antenna got its own stand which is quite good.

Each has it own merit. For those area with low/poor signal coverage and need to move the antenna around for the sweet spot, NMS is the obvious choice.

He/she already got the DTV letter but lost it and was told by IMDA that NRIC can be used as replacement. It just BD (Best Denki) that refuse to accept. That's my understanding.

Might want to check out other like Ukobox which has local warranty. But as usual, do you own research first by going thru buyer's feedback.

Will definitely need to test out all the features as the intention is to use this as backup/spare.

Recording (PVR) is standard feature nowadays, even my cheap China-made STB has it. The question you should be asking is whether it can be play on PC and the answer is no (playable on the STB itself).

No idea what you meant by "Port HD"!

USB port is 2.0.
Thks bro. Port HD is portable hardisk, 1T 2TB. Nw market selling usb3.0 type liao. Shld b able supp rite?

Yup, support up to 2TB for the NMS STB. Using USB 3.0 HDD on USB 2.0 port not an issue, no need for high data transfer in the first place. Personally, it's better to use flash drive instead.

Bring it up to IMDA lor, they probably didn't inform the retailers about this alternative arrangement.

I have another TV in my home receiving digital TV with a 25dB indoor antenna, with good signal with more than 90% signal strength.

The Funke DSC250 should work well also I hope haha, hopefully can receive some Malaysia channels too.

Earlier I tested the NMS antenna (passive and active) on my K2 STB and USB TV stick, both also cannot receive MY channels. Actually was wondering what so nice about their FTA channel?

Receiving Malaysia channels is a bonus, but during occasions like World Cup now, it's good to have it as they have free live broadcast of most matches.

Not a big deal to me as I can watch it on PC. Was wondering if there are any non Malay related channel?

There's 8TV which is a channel cater for Chinese viewers in Malaysia. Their Taiwan and HK shows are not dubbed in Mandarin too, which may be good for those who prefer listening to Hokkien and Cantonese.
