A great world of difference if its digital hd as compared to analog.
Of course lar... digital and analogue already such a big difference what's more SD vs HD...

Who want to order antenna from Amazon ?

If more than US$125, can get free shipping.

Hi LIVE

Which software would you recommend for live tv?

I tried dvbdream etc but the software is very unstable. The only stable software that i have that supports DVB T2 is NPVR. I prefer standalone software (ie not those server/client type)
will post them in the pc tuners thread later

Anybody living in central area (downtown) could receive indoor digital signal?

MediaCorp Digital TV broadcast rollout map is only rolling out in 2015.

Yes they can. I even connect the antenna cables direct to the wall outlet and still no digital signal. It was okay for many months. It's still not okay now.

Don't tell me HDB/Mediacorp stop it in some manner in order to promote their set top box?

Cannot be they spend money to hire people to tear down the antenna. More likely, thunder storm brought it down for Good.
