Someone in Tiong Bahru is able to receive dvb-t2 channels using the Daiyo HD Digital Indoor Antenna, EU1702.

www.hardwarezone.com.sg - View Single Post - Post Your DVB-T2 Settings (no discussions here)

Try placing your margon 2 at a higher location, near window if possible, orientate it to face North, then perform a channel scan. If nothing, orientate it 10 degree toward West and scan again. Repeat this until you get the channels. Stop the scans when antenna is facing west. Can conclude that margon 2.0 is inadequate due to poor indoor signals. Wait until Sep 2014 to try again, or sell away your margon 2 and get a better antenna.
ya i think i wait a while then set up, later on i heard it will roll out right.

I can't really place the antenna near the window, my house living room quite wide and the TV is at the centre.

hey bros did anyone lose reception of dvb-t2 hd5 (and suria) suddenly? I lost reception yesterday on my htpc with the tbs6281, cant get it back even after rescanning with mediacenter.

now I'm using the dvb-t1 hd 5... irritating... I'm stay in potong pasir btw

As a side note, ccchin, congrats, which antennae did u get from the states? Did you get 2 sets of channel 5 hd (named differently as one is from dvb-t1 reception, the other is dvb-t2) Dvb-t2 HD 5 and suria are on the same frequency... so you could have same problem as me.
Hi morgankell, I am able to receive the dvb-t hd5 but not the dvb-t2 hd5 & suria. Glad to know that I am not the only one with this issue. Thanks to your earlier sharing on US flat antennas. I love the flat design, as it is unobtrusive, and also like the lavishly long cables provided. After reading some reviews, I get the AmazonBasics Extreme Performance over the Mohu Leaf Ultimate.

Which one did you get? From Amazon?
@cyrilng: I get the AmazonBasics Extreme Performance Indoor HDTV Antenna. There are 2 other versions, the High Performance and the Regular version. Only the Extreme version comes with an amplifier. I am glad I get the extreme version bcos without turning on the amplifier, my receiver is not able to detect any dvb-t and dvb-t2 signals. For me, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

I cycled through each of them and the TV simply display the text "Scrambled channel". I believe these are encrypted paid channels. No idea which station. Some of the channels are Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, HBO, Football Channel etc. My setup did not detect any FTA malaysian channels.

Do you have to use a step down transformer for it the power adapter is 110v right?

No need step down transformer. The power adapter is rated at 100-240V~ 50-60Hz. You just need a travel adapter that accommodates USA's 2-pin plug.

Or you can simply plug the antenna's usb plug to the TV's usb connector to power the amplifier.

Between the 2 methods, the power adapter provides better signal levels and quality.

Getmecom HD9 Audio Sync

I just bought a Getmecom HD9 (SW Version: Jan 17 2014, HW Version: 1.1).

However, I find that the audio and video are not synchronized - the audio is always delayed about 1 second. I've tried all the different audio settings, as well as the different audio channels.

This problem is encountered when the audio is coming over HDMI, analog, and the built-in speaker. I haven't tried it over the SPDIF output yet.

Has anyone encountered this?
