Nope. No socket in the room. The external antenna works fine.
I think its a waste of money to get this box just to watch that few hd channels.

you are better off with alternatives in the market.

managed to get it working with a small antenna, last time use for improving wifi signal..

I still dun understand how come it doesnt work with the MATV socket, theoretically it should, it seems like those channels were filtered out.

Enjoy free viewing of the FIFA world cup on the cloud with no need for the DVBT2 set top box. Watch all the world cup related shows free with live recording and streaming on an online portal called RecordTV

These are analog signals, not DVB-T2 signals.

Using a LG TV with DVB-T2, connected to the SCV point too and receive the same list of channels. You can connect your LG TV to an indoor antenna or the MATV point to receive DVB-T2 channels.

My points at home are all from cable SCV?
So can i use those point?

There's one point now used for starhub.

So my LG needs an external antenna? Anyway to get it cheap?

Now my resolution is quite blurry, on normal local tvs and SCV.
Is it normal? Can't utilise any HD at all.

In your case, you can only use an indoor antenna to receive DVB-T2 signals.
There's this indoor antenna which is quite cheap and it's available nornally at those neighborhood hardware store. There's another brand of antenna, Margon, available at NTUC Fairprice Xtra hypermarts, though at a slightly higher price. Another would be the Daiyo indoor antenna, though cost quite an amount at around $69.

MODs should sticky a thread on how to receive DVB-T2 signals. Gotta stress everyone again that SCV points CANNOT receive T2 except analog and DVB-C.

Or please read thru previous pages or threads. They're all there.

You can also check the MediaCorp digital TV page at www.mediacorp.sg/digitaltv

From MDA website most sites already has good outdoor signal and by 2015 whole island should have indoor signal... this means over the air signal right? Currently my place at boon lay i need to move the powered antenna to the windows then can receive signal

Hi bro IntelFlash, for DVB-T2, you have to have an indoor antenna (HDB/Condo) or External rooftop antenna (landed house).

Any wall outlet, be it Starhub or HDB provided will not give you the digital, HD signals.
