yea, tampines very bad now, i now use the $20 antenna with usb plug to 3 pin, then into ac ryan antenna booster then to TV

by doing this I got around 75% signal strength, can you help try use amazon antenna and plug to amplifier and see if that get better, If so i want to buy the amazon antenna also

75% signal strength is better than the 55% provided by my amazon extreme at my location. You should be happy with your current setup. Anyway, I did the test that you requested on HD8 and CNA. My HD8 signal drops from 55% to 35% while CNA signal drops from 35% to 25%. It seems amazon extreme doesn't work the way you wanted it.

Draco set-top box bundled antenna

problems solved.
moved antenna near to window solving signals fluctuate problem.
got video but no audio problem, solved by convert the file (ts format) to avi format (or other common formats)
I had a similar problem in the beginning. Did two things to solve.

1) Turned on the antenna power in the settings menu
2) Turned on the antenna power on the antenna itself (it's a rotary wheel on the side). There should be a blue LED light that turns on to indicate the amplifier is on (it's on the front face of the antenna).

Received the dvb-t2 box today.

Unfortunately, it seemed yew Tee area receptions is bad. Facing east no signal even with powered antenna outside windows.

Facing west, some spot outside the window can receive well. Shift a little can lost signal totally.

Overall, much easier to get signal than dvb-t just like others claimed. T2 is indeed more robust.

EPG recording can work by entering the channel and time manually. Unlike the robust way mythTV works. Just select and mythtv set the recording. If the broadcaster changes the program timing later, mythtv will still record correctly. But this box will record at the wrong time. Not smart enough to just follow the epg.

In my parent room, use the default antenna. At first manage to scan all scrambled channel. Re-scan all nothing. Should I turn on Power antenna setting? Or must turn on with connecting the booster antenna? Have I miss out anything?
Tmlr then try the booster antenna.

Hi all, I just received my A.C.Ryan PLAYON!LIVE DVB-T2 Recorder (ACR-PV78100) & Playon! Booster Antenna (ACR-BA10002).
But I am having trouble getting signal indoor. Even when I put near or at the window, it has to be at a very specific position to get a good signal.

Anyone can advice what I can do?

Me too. I live in central area. Just tested with the booster antenna. No program found!
By the way, do we need to buy a 6V power adapter to run the signal amplifier? My no light when on.

The 6V power adaptor is provided in the booster antenna box. Plugged it into the amplifier box and switch it on. The red led will then light up.

I dun have the 6V adapter!!! By the way, I din use the signal amp. I connect directly using the booster antenna and all channel is out.

Damn.. Where is the 6v adapter???

By the way, my signal strength is 90% without the signal amplifier. Need to put on the window. Maybe it should be better if use signal amp and put it at other place rather than window area.
