Juz bought a dvb t2 box, but unable to scan for any channels. anyone know izzit confirm muz buy one antenna tat is connected to power then can use? I only tried with non powered antenna.
From our experience, it looks like you are outside of AMK/ Bukit Batok? If outside of these 2 areas you will have to use an active (powered) antenna - until after more areas are added under the digital rollout at least.

P.S. also you can double-check if your set supports the DVB-T2 v1.3.1 standard - this is required for DVB-T2 recception to work in SG.

Wanna check with u all. Is your DVB-T2 device working correctly with subtitles for live TV, and/or recordings?

Example, the Channel 5 Chinese subtitles for most 10pm programmes. Are they on your DVB-T2 device for live TV and/or recordings?

This is an interesting thought bro. We might make one if the market demands, so stay tuned

Rest assured we are working hard - we are also avid media lovers here!

Bro Kiwi8, we haven't tried on ALL of the 10pm shows, but The Blacklist on HD 5, Sundays 10pm have Chinese subtitles working fine for both live viewing and recording here.

Will do more tests. Also if you have other tests you'd like to see results to, feel free to share and we will try to contribute too.

I just bought the Margon 2.0

I tried searching and only found SCV channels.
When i tune to them, it say scrambling on my LG Smart TV

I can't find Ch 5/8/U RTM 1 or the usual channels at all.

What's the problem?

Please check if your TV is DVB-T2 ready or check your tuning settings is set to receiving DVB-T2 channels. Make sure you are connected to the indoor antenna and NOT your SCV point.

Only mediacorp channels are currently transmitting in T2 format. RTM1 and Supersports Arena is not available.

I'm using LG, one of the latest models with DVB-T2.

I checked the TV's menu, only can have auto or manual tuning.

I used auto tuning and it only got those SCV terrestrial channels which i can't view.
Can't find a single local channel nor Indo/MY channels

I can receive t2 channel with draco stb + margon 2.0 antenna. Yishun block 40x 9th floor. Was unable to get signal when using the bundled draco antenna .

Yes, you have to buy an indoor antenna and a DVB-T2 box to receive T2 channels, since you mentioned that your TV(46F5500) isn't a T2 TV.
