No.... technically the master source is just a digital source, whether be it HD or SD. Then this source is modulated either to DVB-T2 or DVB-C as appropriate for the air and cable respectively. U should not be looking at it as DVB-C converted from DVB-T2 or vice versa.
I read somewhere on mediacorp claming starhub's HD5 source is coming from DVB-T previously. Apologized for the bad grammar but ya not trying to say it's being converted or anything just that the main source itself is coming from T2. Maybe I'm wrong but I believe some may understand what I'm trying to say la. haha

I know what you are trying to say, but it still sounds like you don't

It doesn't run on DVB-T2 signals, it runs off the same broadcasting feed as the DVB-T2 channels.
Technically ya, but since these HD channels were launched on the T2 platform first so many like me will "consider" these feed source are coming from the main DVB-T2 side. Hahah. After all starhub just merely carries these feed from since mediacorp currently "owns" most of the DVB-T2 side.

Saying that the source comes from DVB-T2 is conceptually wrong mah.

I give u an example. It's like saying that the video format on BluRay disc is the same as the one displayed on TV after the BluRay player reads the disc lor. The BluRay player got to convert the signals that can be transmitted by HDMI to the TV, for example.

I bought this antenna and the coaxial plug doesn't fit my tv, do I need to buy a connector ? How am I suppose to obtain them to use this antenna ?

AcRyan PV78100 not able to detect USB HDD

I just bought a AcRyan Live PV78100. Both my WD and Seagate 2.5' USB HDD is not able to be detected. Pls advise. Only 3.5' external HDD with additional power supply is able to be detected.

probably your AcRyan's USB port is not providing enough current to power up those 2.5" HDD

maybe you can get a USB Y Power Cable


The male USB with data connect to AcRyan
The male USB with power only connect to a USB handphone charger

The female USB connect to your 2.5" HDD
