heres a short clip. notice the sound, kinda like low quality audio streams which you will get from 987fm online
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qsquluc0nm...82014-2030.mts

there are 3 audio streams in the video file, first is acc 5.1 is a bit choppy, second is acc stereo (which i suppose is 2.0 or 2.1), last is eac3 5.1. i've no idea which one cant be heard on TV, but all 3 sounds have the low quality problem

i hear a few screeching sounds, i thought my headphones got problem till i retry again, got same screeching sounds. sound sounds like mumbling, the sound filter cut off frequency seems too low, high frequency sounds can't hear + screeching sounds

I only have the choppy problem with the first track. The other 2 tracks are ok though the 3rd one is a little softer in volume.

Smile DVB-T2 Singapore

The set-top box can be bought from ebay Singapore. I bought the one stated '2014 New' set-top box and received all the channels and the picture quality is very good. They also provide the hdmi cable as a free gift. The cost is about S$54 and includes express shipping which takes a week to receive it from China. There are a few models listed. The other models I cannot garantee it works. The seller name is Sinhoonline.

you dont find the sound quality for all tracks sounded like low quality stream?

listen to this mediacorp 987fm online 987FM

the quality is similar leh

on my tv, the sound is somewhat amplified, making it worse. i've sent the clip to the seller on taobao, he said its normal

I have just removed some sales posts.
Further infringements will be rewarded with a ban.
Thanks
Guys
Just a reminder to keep the talk to technical stuff and sharing of sources of STB.
For antennas, there's a separate thread and likewise for settings.
As for sales & MO chats, keep that out of this forum.

Thank you, cheers.

Bought the STB from one of the guy here in HWZ and found out that the sound is very thin and without "layers" and it's not solid as well. I don't know how to describe it using words lol. The video is sharp though.

Thanks alot bro! Now all i need is to go and buy the correct connector head and DIY!
You are most welcome. Actually whether it works or not depends a lot on ambient indoor signal. Good luck!

Edit: If there is any update, please do so at the antenna thread. Thanks.

According to the specs for my TV (Philips LED TV 46PFL8605) it states that it can receive DVB-C.

So I connect directly from StarHub cable point directly to the TV's antenna in. But I'm unable to receive any digital channels.

I have read in this forum that there are others who are able to receive DVB-C from StarHub cable point.

Any idea why I am not able to receive DVB-C digital channels?

Thanks.

Make sure you select the correct settings. Anyway some TV may not meet the same standard as SG signal

my bro philips 4000 series tv is able to tune to DVB-C~ when select digital tuning, there's DVB-T & DVB-C option, select DVB-C~ it will take quite awhile cos starhub contains few hundred channels~

i can't rembr the actual steps, if there's manual tuning, u can shorten the scanning time~ Ch5, 8, Suria, Vasan, CNA fall on 642Mhz, Okto on 562Mhz while HD5 on 370Mhz~ there's also one KaraOk channel on 594Mhz~
