The USB port on your TV cannot accept USB TV tuner stick.

You can start from

If you buy the Draco as per What is DVB-T2 & Why Should I Care? - HardwareZone.com.sg, it comes with an antenna.

Er... please read the article hor.
And also the first page of this forum thread.

Anyone managed to receive DVB-t2 signal in Sengkang area?

Will the ACryan external antenna be able to receive signal indoor in Sengkang area?


Thanks.

Regarding the diy antenna, I went shopping today.
Couldn't find the balun transformer at space. After combing slt managed to find one for $5. At level 2, the shop right beside the escalator going down to level 1

Yes..........

Putting the DIY antenna on practical...

Near the window facing towards Bukit Timah Hill (where transmitter originates)


Scanning and detecting succeed!


Crisp and clear image!


This is the Signal Strength and Quality even when the window is SHUTTED!


You don't actually need to buy any Margon, Amazon, Leaf, etc.. powered antenna to achieve this!

Some additional info: Home locates in Sengkang Compassvale, living on top floor. Signal is very strong and even penetrates way over into the middle of my bedroom where this TV situates. Old DVB-T signal can't even does that!

Draco STB

Is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with the stb. Mine just died over the weekend...

Powered it on, shows HD 5 for like 5 seconds then blank screen (I get this quite regularly), so I power it off and then power it on again but this time it will not power up at all!

Not looking forward to going down to agent for repair/replacement...
