The antenna in the middle enough to catch DVBT or T2?


Or need those with electronic booster? which doesnt make sense to me that it would receive a better signal... :p

I dun get it, according to this:


As I live in Bedok, Does this mean even if I get one of those antennas also no use? since only next year then can receive signal?

Whole SG should be able to watch just that east side may need booster if a bit dead spot ...

looks like analog antenna?

make sure antenna is for digital broadcast ...
so far booster antenna mostly rectangular shape
look out for wordings like DVB-T2 or T (DVB-T works for me, pasir ris area)

Hmmm..... came across this

Despite any marketing ploys used by antenna makers, there is no such thing as a "digital antenna". A broadcast signal, whether digital or analog, is placed on a carrier wave. The carrier is what is received by an antenna.

You are right. Antennas are just antennas doesn't got to do with analog or digital. These antennas can receive digital signals it's a matter of design and performance only.

Came across this which is apparently 7 years ago... so I assume hes referring to analog... this signal amplification doesnt affect digital signals right?:

Lot of misconception regarding antenna amps. Most the time the money would be better spent on purchasing a higher quality antenna. If the signal is weak and noisy to begin with, the amp will increase the gain on the signal AND the noise, resulting in no benefit.

If Samsung tv maybe need to change the region before you can tune to dvb-c. For years I was wondering what was wrong before coming across a post in this thread which suggested that for some reasons Samsung TVs are region locked for dvb-c. Changed to new Zealand and I can now see the dvb-c channels although I still can't get hd5 on 370mhz for some reason, probably tuner specific.

But totally dont have the option to change region / area code

the OUTDOOR SIGNAL is already available ... its just that you have to stick your antenna on your roof or out of your window to receive (no guarantee)

the map is showing INDOOR SIGNAL, means its strong enough to receive with antenna INSIDE your home

You need to set Aerial to Cable and select Digital tuning.
I'm already enjoying watching Channel 8 HD over DVB-C unencrypted on my Samsung TV since about 2 months ago...

They dont let me choose, the only option there is terrestrial antenna

I believe if I can change the region code i believe the cable option will appear...
