Just bought the Draco DVB-T2 receiver.
I am able to pause the live tv program without any ext usb storage,does it mean that without ext usb storage,it just a pause function and once you press the pause again it will broadcoast live tv again?
Yes, when you pause without ext usb storage, the pic just freeze at that point of time. You will miss that part of the programme for the duration of the pause.

Initially i set pcm my sony tv displayed all as stereo. After i set bs out my sony tv displayed as stereo for aac n dolby digital for dd+.
DD is very loud while DD+ is soft but still clear.
The HDMI is actually an intelligent interface that support automatic configuration, it allows the transmitting source (STB) to automatically deliver the most effective format (e.g. DD vs 2 ch PCM) for the TV receiver that it is connected, eliminating the need for user to scroll through a list of audio formats. Thus, it is strange that the box's HDMI output actually follows the BS Out settings….. there could be some limitations in the main chipset, or even a software bug.

Your Sony actually detects DD, this seems to indicate that a DD+ decoder by default, has a DD+ to DD transcoder. What is left is whether the box converts HE-AAC 5.1 to DD 5.1 and presents it to the Digital Audio Out. Both cases can simply be verified with a DVD HTS.

Hope I am not posting my question in the wrong thread.

I am planning to buy a small TV in my room (40 or below) that do not have a setup box. Are all the TV in the market now digital TV or that none of them are? I am wondering if I need a buy the receiver since I am buying a new TV. I looked at all the advertisements but none of them indicated whether it is a digital TV or not.

After reading up most of the posting, can I conclude that we do not need to get a A-B video splitter if we connect the TV (non digital one) antenna into SCV point and HDMI input from the STB which is connected to an indoor antenna or MATV?

We only need to do the tuning for the TV and STB separately, correct?

If you are planning to buy a digital DVB-T2 TV below 40inch, I think only Sony 32W674A fulfills your requirement. If not, you can buy those digital DVB-T or analog TV and buy a DVB-T2 receiver box and an antenna. If you currently have a StarHub TV or/and SingTel mioTV box in your room, you do not need to buy a digital TV but to futureproof your new TV purchase, you can consider buying a DVB-T2 TV set.

The Sony chipset is a DVB-T2/T/C demod as you pointed out in post #1432. The DD/DD+ decoder is embedded inside the main digital SoC chipset (Mstar, ALi, STM, etc), which should sit underneath a big heatsink inside the box
What I found inside the stb:
  • Circuit board MC6435-M3812-VER1.0 (Ali?)
  • TM1668 (LED display driver ic)
  • Nanya NT5CB64M16FP-DH (4 Gb DDR3 SDRAM)

This may help you to guess better the features of the stb


I think DD/DD+ logo is more appropriate for HTS than to TV/STB, TVs are now so complex that there can be lots of other features/logos worth promoting. Whatever the case, royalty fees would have been paid directly or indirectly via the OEM manufacturer. Or, maybe there is no logo because initially there is no intention for a DD/DD+ decoder, but add it later because people might complaint of no sound on DD+…. we can continue to guess….

Yes. Just note that matv may or may not have the digital tv signal.

Correction of terminology, it's a rf splitter, not a video splitter.

Positive.

No it can't receive since the scv point transmit only DVB-C and analog signals while the draco box decodes DVB-T2 and DVB-T signals only. Not sure whether the draco box decodes analog signals.

Decoder box review

Ordered this:Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is HD DVB-T2 terrestrial digital television TV receiver DVB T2 tuner with DVB-T MPEG-2 MPEG-4 H.264 HDMI 1080P Set top box

Has smaller than expected footprint.
Used my own powered antenna.
Works and is so much more cheaper than a draco.
