Can u guys get TV1? I using the normal cheapo antenna and can get the mediacorp HD channels with no problems, but my parents wants malaysia's TV 1...

And just wondering, i can get ntv7 and sctv but the quality sucks so much its not watchable...Theres colour and sound is good but very grainy. Do u guys think if i get the amazon antenna, it will be much better?

Staying at bukit batok east first storey.
I think it is due to location reason? SCTV quality shouldn't be so bad.

1) Your DVB-T2 card MUST connect to an external antenna to receive DVB-T2 signals for now. YOU CANNOT CONNECT YOUR DVB-T2 CARD TO YOUR SCV POINT AND EXPECT TO RECEIVE DVB-T2 SIGNALS!

SCV Point looks like this:


MATV Point looks like this:


A lot of the MATV points got disabled when SCV rolled out cabling in Singapore over 20 years ago. HDB is also no longer maintaining the MATV points so your best bet is still using a DIY antenna.

2) DVB-T2 signals are not available islandwide now and are only available at certain places. Refer to this map:


3) The other 2 ways you can receive DVB-T2 channels are:
- Subscribe to Singtel MiOTV
- Subscribe to Starhub Cable TV
(ie, PAY MONEY)

Just to share with all.

Bought Soundtech VHF/UHF antenna from Giant IMM @ $15.90

Location : Jurong West Street 42, 4th storey.

Result : Ch 5 HD, Ch 8 HD, Suria HD, Vasantham HD, CNA SD, Ch U SD & Okto SD.

Happy so far. :-)

Indonesia (tested and verified), and maybe Thailand and Malaysia. If I'm not wrong, all ASEAN will use same standard.
