Dear all,
I have been in email conversation with haupaugge for the last 3 months.
Summary statement is
a) dont buy the nanostick t2 (model 290e) - it is incompatible with the singapore dvb-t2.
b) a new model 292e is supposed to come out but nowhere in sight
c) haupaugge support leaves much to desire so don't buy first as guinea pig

if they ever replace my 2 nanostick t2, ill get back if I can get any dvb-t2 signals.

in short, there does not seem to be any decent usb dvb-t2 tuner for Singapore... sigh... why are we so special?

Another way for those who wants a more stable digital signal and only watches FTA channels, get a DVB-C usb tuner and connect it to your Starhub cable point. And there you have it. Channel 5/8/Suria/Vas/CNA/U/okto all unencrypted and watchable. FTA HD channels now available is Channel 5. Channel 8/Suria and Vasantham HD to follow when Starhub launches them.

Second question.

After getting TV with DVB T2, the point is still connected to the starhub cable TV point or to the opennet point?

If not, the TV point need upgrade?

Before you ask further questions, read posts #2, 3 and 27 which should basically clear all your doubts.

and for indoor reception, yes not all can receive at this stage

but if you stick your antenna out of your window, you might be able to receive it because outdoor reception is available island wide

My TV tuner PCI card is going to spoil soon and want to replace it. Since now TV can receive digital by using DVB T2, I wonder if there is a TV tuner PCI card have the same features to receive in High definition

Starhub DVB-C Config
 
Hi Sunsetbay,

Are you able to share the frequency/symbol rate/modulation (i.e. QAM32/64/128/256) for Ch5, Ch8, Ch U?

I am trying to use dvblogic's TVSource to tune in to MediaCorp FTA channels using Starhub's DVB-C. TVSource: search channels: DVB-C - DVBLink wiki

Thanks very much!

other mediacorp DVB-C channels~ OKTO (SD) on 562Mhz~ Ch5, Ch8, Suria, Vasantham, ChU (All SD) on 642Mhz~ KaraOk channel is on 594Mhz~

not sure why oric1 can't tune to DVB-C, maybe there's difference version of DVB-C which starhub use~ :s22:
