dvb-c only
For this dvb-c signal, is it still available after 2016?
And is the tv able to play it directly without using the STB?
Thanx.

i need those ac powered antenna, the usb powered one is cmi
Fairprice Xtra has the Margon indoor antenna(Combo 5.1 and Home 2.0), it has a USB cable to supply power for the antenna, but you can plug it into a charger plug eg. Apple iPhone plug.

Think he needs AC powered one because the USB powered amp in the Margon won't provide enough gain.. connecting the Margon amp to USB port on the TV or a iPhone charger or Samsung charger won't affect the gain at all.

Thanx.
Once analog signal is turned off, you will need one of the following to receive MediaCorp channels:

- DVB-T2 capable TV
- DVB-T2 Set-Top box
- Paid TV subscription (e.g. red/green)

MediaCorp Digital TV

You can see point number 5 for more info.

Anybody using the Getmecom HD 9 box from Indonesia?

I have used this for a few months without problems but now this happens with the channel used just before turning off the box.
The other channels are ok.

got my box, scanned using this antenna [http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/1...0515165259.jpg].


no channels found, not even one. zz

stayed at cck area low floor.


does buying amazon extreme antenna helps?
I am confident that it will. But do you want to take the risk?
So I just took the risk haha, will update the results when I test

Glad that you took the plunge. Do share your results.

Received my amazon extreme antenna, now can receive all mediacorp channels plus 3 test channels!

But still need some positioning tho it's an indoor antenna. Looks like my area reception really very low.
