i actually compiled a list of channels which i done some time back~ i didn't post anywhere cos was waiting starhub to finalise their freq on HD8 & the rest of the HD channels~

Spoiler!
Nice list you have!!

Moved my Margon Combo 5.1 right by the window facing SSE, unfortunately still only able to get the broadcasts on UHF 52.

Nothing on UHF 46 or UHF 48 for me.

UHF 52 signal strength is above 80 though.. makes me wonder if there's any broadcast on UHF 46 at all.

DVB-T2 is actually a very efficient way of broadcasting HD content over large areas, and has been in place in Europe for quite some time already

Need some expert guidance.
My current tv has dvb-t and analog tuner.
What are the digital channel that can be received on the Starhub cable point without using the Starhub STB?
There is only one cable point in the house and it's only Starhub.
With the analog signal turn off in 2016, will the dvb-t signal ceased to operate as well?
Can't find the answers anywhere on the mediacorps or Starhub website
Thanx for any advice and clarification.

Your tv must be DVB-C compatible to receive digital channels from cable points. If not you're just gonna receive analog only. There's no DVB-T/2 via cable points.

The tv freq on the digital channel list on dvb-c and dvb-t is the same throughout? All on 610, 642 & 690, how to change channel?
Care to enlighten, I'm confused.
Thanx.

Ok. It is DTV TunerDVB-T / C
As of what I tried. I had only managed to received analog signal.
This Tv is capable of recording tv programs to hdd. However, when I tried, it prompt for recording can only work on digital signal. I may have not configure the digital channels correctly. Is the digital channel configurations similar for analog?
Are the dvb-t & c channels still available after 2016?
Thanx again.

DVB-T/C are supposed to run alongside with DVB-T2 as with what other countries are doing. Set your TV to receive digital channels or if there's a setting to receive DVB-C. For the recording, I cannot advice since my tv doesn't have a recording function.

Does the Starhub wall socket comes with dvb-t or c digital signal? (Not dvb-t2)
I see 0% signal strength for dvb-t & c on my tv connected to the Starhub wall socket.
