Nope, this STB is meant for cable TV, I don't see why they would include DVB-T2 tuner in their box!
may be he is asking for dvb-c, dvb-c is also digital.

Thanks for helping to educate me.

It an old box and I understand with newer SHSTB, no digital box required for now.

Hence am wondering if am the old SHSTB connected to HDB cable point will work till end if the year or even 2020?

Any STB from SH should be able to receive DTV via DVB-C from SH source. The question is whether they will continue to made it available to non-subscriber after end-2018 remains to be seen. Other then that, it will be another 2yrs before they eventually pull the plug in providing TV services via coaxial cable.

Cable TV will never cease lah, not unless SH decided to give up this business for good. It only the mode of delivery that will change, currently is via coaxial cable and eventually all will be by fibre (IPTV).

May be you have not read Starhub announcement. They are moving to IP via boardband. New subscriber no more on cable.

I am well aware, that why I mentioned eventually all (by 2020) will need to move to fibre network if they want cable TV service from SH.

I have the same question that if my boardband is not Starhub. Can I get Starhub IP TV (no more cable TV service) in my home?

Actually no difference in terms of reception, they are using the same chipset.

May be there is little heat and reliability problem due to low production cost. But you can buy 3-4 sets with same money you paid for a local set.

My old aged parents now complained that they need to use 2 remote controls for both our TV and DVB-T2 setup box, and they get very confused.

Anybody know how to control both TV and setup box by using 1 single remote control only?
Sorry, repost.

You managed to solve this problem? I'm having the same problem too...Draco box. thx in advance.
