First look, the remote control is the same as the model you could get from TaoBao for ~S$38. It could just be the same hardware within, but different exterior.

I'd suggest you not to risk getting one which you do not know if it works, and end up paying more too when you can get a cheaper one of similar.

I'm using Philips TV 3000 series and I am not able to receive any DVB T2 channel through the antenna. I can only receive DVB C digital channels through the old SCV wall socket. The sales told me the TV is "digital TV ready" but how come it still can't receive T2 signals at all?

Digital ready could mean two things - DVB-T ready and/or DVB-T2 ready. Or the salesman mixed up with HD (digital) ready or something. Do more personal research next time.

my china box split the recording into many many parts.
i record 1 hour ch u sd program is split into 4 files, each 512mb.
That's not a nice solution. Imagine a 11G 1080I recording will be broken into 22 files...

Is the settings on the PVR menu, the file size can be recorded in 0.5GB, 1GB, 2GB,etc to 4GB is not an issue. 4GB Fat32 limitation.

Private Message me for those that would like to get the china

For some of you who might have asked about this, regarding 5.1 audio.

I've finally tested it a movie showing currently on HD5 - Green Lantern, with my 5.1 setup with AVR. For the DVB-T2 audio, it's only stereo as default. No sound if I choose DD+.

For DVB-T's HD5, 5.1 audio works fine by default.

Green lantern, AAC and Dolby Digital Symbol pops up.
Using China Receiver.

mediacok transmit DD+ dual Left Right channel only
where you can output to HDMI or to Digital Output as PCM.
Similar to AAC format mediacok transmit in dual Left Right only.

DD+ seems to be a very new format that only a few receiver can support

Researching on purchasing my first LCD TV.

1) Does IDTV support recording to USB/HDD feature similar to set-top box?
2) Does set-top box allow viewing one channel and record another channel simultaneously?

"mediacorp transmit" and "stb decode" are 2 diff things.
previously some forumers recorded in TS format and already confirmed that DD+ and AAC codecs are multi-channel.
the old dvb-t transmission already using DD5.1 (for HD5), i don't think they will downgrade to DD+ stereo transmission.

the china receiver i got supports:
3. HE AAC5.1, HE AAC+, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital plus audio decoding
4. HE AAC5.1, HE AAC+, Dolby Digital/Dolby Digital plus Down-mix to two channels
5. HE AAC5.1, HE AAC+, Dolby Digital/Dolby Digital plus PCM digital audio output

5.1 surround is supported on option 5 for china receiver as PCM on digital audio output, this was not detected on green latern, shall test on the next movie screening.

I have both DVB-T and new DVB-T2 receiver and 5.1 Dolby Digital compliant Sony STRDA50ES Audio Receiver.
