Page not found.

This is the correct url for the tv:

UA32H4100AK 32" Series 4 LED TV - OVERVIEW | SAMSUNG

*This model is only available at Giant / FairPrice / Mustafa
oops did not try testing the link before posting it, thanks for correcting it btw.

I think this Samsung TV is only sold at the three places is because it's considered the lowest-end of Samsung 2014 TV lineups and also the listed places normally sells affordable TVs.

Maybe you didn't know this trick: it's easier to copy and paste the url from the address bar when you are at the page than to manually type out the whole url

Hi mr tan wanna ask.... is your dvb-t2 legal??! Sorry for asking....
hmm good question. There shouldn't be any illegality in
receiving aerial broadcast, though got to check with supplier
if need apply the certificate of conformance from spring singapore,
for safety mark no. that needs to send product to 3rd party testing

wonder how much is the test cost ? I check it out.

Cheapest way to watch T2 is using set-top box $50-150, otherwise only 2 32" models to check for promotions as of now; Sony W674 and Panasonic 32E6S. Ard $600
May I know where can I get the T2 set-top box locally? Any thing to look out for before buying? Any good recommendation of models?

All dvb-T2 decoders are legal...
My friend also thought that ALL setup boxes are illegal..No
Only setup boxes that decode commercial transmissions..(Mio TV/SCV)
dvb-t2 transmissions are free to air.

Try looking around in the garage corner to look for dvb-t2 boxes for sale...

probably mib500 meant the singapore safety mark appliance approval number and marking. That needs the IEC 60065 testing, I already msg to supplier since they sell worldwide if the testing have been done and report. If there is just need to apply the safety mark number, though costs will go up up again

Please do not confuse, dvbt2 receiver is CANNOT tune and decode watch for free starhub cable tv channels without subscribing. dvbt2 receiver only receive free to air sg mediacorpse or indonesian or future malaysian broadcast channels.

You have raised an interesting and pertinent issue, as noted by tan1688!

The Singapore DVB-T2 standard, which covers DVB-T2 set top box and DVB-T2 tv, spell out requirements in 3 main areas:
  • Technical Requirements for Reception of DVB-T2 signals;
  • Electrical safety Requirements; and
  • Electrical and Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) Requirements [Interference]

Obviously, set top boxes and tv sets approved by MDA/IDA would have complied with all the above requirements.

Traders and suppliers who sell these products must have them certified.

Quote from MDA (SOURCE):

"From 1 November 2013, all DVB-T2 receivers for sale in Singapore are required to be registered with IDA under the Equipment Registration Scheme and comply with the Technical Specification for DVB-T2 Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) as set out by IDA and MDA."

While consumers are at libery to import unapproved products direct from overseas, bear in mind that if there is any complaint of interference from the set top boxes or tv sets, the consumers concerned are at risk of being penalised under the IDA Act as the equipment had not been approved (illegal in laymen term). There is also the question of the electrical safety of the product.

So those who wish to (or have) take/n the risk bear these in mind.

hi mib500, to address your concerns.

For the china generic receiver, manufacturer states
IEC 60065 Audio, video and similar electronic apparatus – Safety requirements has been done and accorded to CE marking, exportable to all european nations. (see below)

I have request the CE conformance cert from manufacturer and will check with spring singapore safety marking registration costs. Also EMC conformance is below as for
mda certification probably after i check above.

Did you salvage the cable from your rabbit antenna?

Here is another pic of a typical coaxial cable (RG 59) (mine is the RG6 type):


This particular cable does not have a screening metal foil for the inner conductor. Soldering of the screen wire is optional.
The coax cable u shown is a normal coax cable...more like those connected to the SCV point one.

Those V antennas (or rabbit antenna) are very low cost (both my old and other V antenna use those thin strains of copper like hair) and do not use coax. And the connector is the male version of those behind the tv

I will try to look for some cables and maybe DIY with the connector head. May i check if those electrical wire will work? Like those black/red insulation cables (inside is probably also strains of copper wires)

hi, i am back again
using 42LN570T model tv which has DVB-T2 support

i have tried MATV point, but with no luck

i tried digging out my old tv antenna and connect to my tv
1. indoor testing, cannot receive any channel
2. outdoor testing, i left my antenna at the corridor, received some 2 HD channel but no images on screen
3. carry my antenna at the corridor facing the sky, able to receive all channels with no quality problem

from this thread, i have seen ppl received strong signal with the antenna indoor
can anybody recommend me antenna that i can use indoor ?
as it is quite impossible for me to wire my antenna outside
