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. The power adapter provides slightly better signal levels and quality.

hi

If I get the Amazon High Performance Antenna, do I still need a DVB-T setup box, or just connect this to the TV will do?

Thanks.

Connect the antenna to:

1) a TV with built-in DVB-T2 tuner.
or
2) a DVB-T2 receiver (STB) and connect STB's HDMI output to TV.

You can search older posts for diagrams and additional info.

hello i dont know about this though, as im just using my computer monitor build in speaker.

Pressing the audio button on the remote will give a few choices. If there are 5.1 surround sound for the program, a selection for that audio channel with the logo "5.1" will appear.
I needsomecash, I am planning to buy the dvb-t2 tuner box you got from Aliexpress. Can you confirm that the box you bought can record using EPG(Electronic Program Guide)? Eg. I mean like today is Monday. You saw there is an interesting program on coming Friday 7pm~9.30pm. Can you just go to the EPG & select to record that program on Friday 7pm & it will automatically stops at 9.30pm?

Thanks. You have been helpful in this forum.

Thanks for sharing. 2015/2016 is a long wait. Perhaps it is better to sell away your margon and try the ACRyan antenna since they said it works in Tampines.

If your TV has 2 antenna-in jacks, perhaps you can. If your TV has only 1 antenna-in jack, then you cannot.

Why not get the Amazon antenna? Redhill and Telok Blangah sure can get signal. I didn't even have to try.

As for the AC Ryan booster antenna, is it able to use if I were to just connect to my T2 TV?

Anyone can tell me why we cannot use the wall plug cable to digital tv (with in-built tuner) directly to get the signals? We need to buy additional outdoor antenna?

The reason I'm asking is I find it strange that those with singtel or starhub setup boxes can still use the same wall plug cable as the signal source.
