hi guys i just bought a samsung h6400 tv and i noticed that when i on my sony blu ray home theatre system which is connected to the hdmi arc input of the tv, some channels will be unable to receive any signals. Anyone knows why? i tried plugging into other hdmi ports of the tv also the same and previously i was using panasonic tv and this issue didnt occur
That Blu-ray is emitting something that affects your t2 receiver?

Very hard to tell without real testing locally

Hi All

My Grandma's LCD broke down and now I'm helping to get a replacement TV.
I considered the Digital TV matter and thought to get a new TV with built-in Digital Tuner. I found a Sony model as recommended by Best Denki Sales Rep.
I checked and it's verified model to be compliant.

Question now is this.
No Starhub set top box is in used so it'll be direct connection from TV to SCV Point. I was told I need to buy a dedicated Digital Signal Cable for this connection (~$40-50). However, if Mediacorp has not yet pushed Digital signal in the area yet, would my setup still work or I need to switch back to the analog cable to connect between SCV Point to TV?

see whether your grandma place has digital tv coverage - MediaCorp is going fully digital

If not covered then you have to subscribe Starhub to receive the digital channels. Or you can wait till digital TV is roll out to your area.

If it is covered,
For non-pay TV subscribers

You need to do is to buy an indoor antenna and a DVB-T2 digital set-top-box and connect them to your existing TV set to watch digital TV. You can also consider buying a new TV with a built-in DVB-T2 digital tuner (Integrated Digital TV or IDTV) set and an indoor antenna to enjoy an enhanced viewing experience. Additional equipment required will be a 75-ohm coaxial cable and a HDMI cable if you are using the digital set-top box.

MediaCorp Digital TV
Thanks for the help.
Location is at Serangoon North so base on Mediacorp's plan, its a general planned rollout in 2015/2016. Hence it is unlikely that the Digital signal is being pushed through the SCV Point.

Its ok. I'm just planning it in advance. Still can live with analog signal till Mediacorp formally push out digital signal in the area.

Henceforth, until then, I just invest on a TV with built-in DVB-T2 encoder but live with analog for now. There are no plans to get paid TV.

The map is showing indoor reception coverage

Outdoor reception is already avaliable island wide

Meaning even if you don't have indoor reception at this time, you still can receive digital TV by sticking the antenna out if the window, of course outdoor reception depends your surroundings and direction of your window

Yeh understood on that point.

Just Future Proofing the purchase.

Cheers.

Any one knows if sengkang, specifically near buangkok mrt, has signal for digital DVB-T2? Bought a Samsung HU7200 then realised digital ready means many things.. So I can't get HD 5.

Asked around and they all said if cannot get signal but the antenna is working, cannot exchange. So which antenna? I read hwz featured article mentioning the daiyo one. Then recently Draco.. Which is better?

Also another confusing thing, I Google the HU7200 and some site lists it as a dvb-C capable tuner, but I couldn't get anything.

Got a cheaper daiyo cable from F to TV. Must the cable be the so called digital TV cable or is that just a marketing gimmick?

are you getting interference? when the screen jumbles, monitor the level and quality, maybe there is an interference causing a sudden drop in quality
