Current DTT frequencies available in Johor Bahru, Singapore and Batam.

*as of 25 July 2019

Batam is now transmitting more Indonesia digital TV channels, which are 642MHz, 674MHz and 690MHz.

Are you guys able to receive Indonesia's digital TV channels?
Maybe it's time to try do Auto Scan again.
Thanks for the info !

I am thinking of getting a projector to replace my TV.

However, I am not able to find a suitable DVB T2 tuner for the projector that could feed 5.1 channel sound to my receiver (Marantz SR7013).

I have recently bought an Ascend brand DVB T2 tuner to try out, as its specifications looked promising and it is in IDMAís list of approved surround sound ready devices. However, through HDMI, the tunerís signal can only be recognised by my receiver as PCM stereo in both PCM and RAW audio output formats.

Anyone knows of a DVB T2 tuner that could transcode HE-AAC 5.1 to Dolby Digital AC3 or PCM 5.1?

For fast solving your problem, you should consult your A/V receiver agent, Marantz or your projector agent....

Go google search....

Better look for STB built in with SPDIF.

https://ezbuy.sg/product/51000024956...-productDetail

Look for active antenna

Receive MYTD program? It's depend on your location (you stay at), how you place your Antenna and Antenna location correctly.......
