Thanks Kiwi8! I'll try out at outdoors.

All the subs from MediaCorp are now in the correct position, with the exception of HD8 as their English subs is still not in the correct place whenever 2 subtitles are shown on the SD version.

Kiwi8, can I find out from you where do you stay? I can't seem to get reception anywhere. I'm trying to bring my portable tuner around the west side to catch signals.

No... DVB-T will probably be switched off together with the analog PAL broadcast, or at most a few years after.

I emailed him but he did not reply.
You can pm me if you want a copy of the 20140717V6.0 firmware. The Sinho Eric fella emailed it to me back in Sep.

Received quite a few PMs so I'll just share it here. Unzip and put the .bin file in an SD card, then use the receiver's GUI to update.

Firmware:

After update:


NOTE: Updating firmware always carries some risk, so I'm not responsible for any damage caused to your receiver.

I just order a DVB-T2 TV, to be installed next month.. my area should have DVB-T2 signal liao.. since I'm not subscribing to starhub or mio, so guess I should just connect the TV to an antenna? Is the Daiyo EU1702 a good choice or are there other cheap n good antennas to consider?

You can try the Margon Home 2.0 or Margon Combo 5.1 indoor antenna.

Thanks. Updated. Let's see if the English subtitle turns up when Mediacorp airs movies & etc.
