Ok, tried it. Thanks


But analogue channels still not watchable because of snowing
Analogue sure not very watchable from indoor antenna. Unless you place it in a good location, good height and facing the transmission tower. Even then also, the Daiyo might not have good directivity.

In any case, you are already enjoying the 7 channels in clear digital, why would u want analogue reception too bro?

does it mean i can connect to any TV or tv with DVB-T tuners?
Cos it connects via Coax cable but then what does the TV has to do? Set to Digital, or Analogue scan?
This antenna is for TVs with built-in digital tuners. Set to analogue for what? Analogue can provide full HD?

I stay in Kulai 32km north of Johor Bahru. I am using a rooftop outdoor antenna with booster. Just bought the Draco and connected it to my antenna and HD TV. I can receive all HD channels and SD channels clearly without interferences. Before this I could only get HD5, SD8, CNA and very bad Channel U. Now I can get digital channel U plus all the SD channels.
Enjoy...Has Malaysia started already?

Just now watching non HD channel 8 there were some stuttering, ytd there were instances where HD signal kept getting lost, quite ok today in the evening, not sure now.

Should work. It is just a powered antenna for HD broadcast. Nothing too complicated.

My 1 yr +++ plus LG 42LM5800 comes with DVB-T tuner and not DVB-T2 tuner and I connected to a simple wire antenna and I can only get 8(SD), 5(SD), CNA(SD) and 5(HD). No Channel U, OKTO and etc...

Is it normal cos the tuner is DVB-T and not DVB-T2?

This could be a sign of signal quality not so good. Instead of the pixelation and no picture (cliff) effect in T format when the signal quality is poor, the T2 format shows effect as pictures freeze (stuttering).

Verify by doing a manual scan for chan 31 (ch8 HD) and chan38 (ch8 SD). Check for signal strength and quality.

Please feed back for general awareness.

No, we r slower for free to air digital broadcast though we have paid Astro in HD a few years already.
But the lucky ppl in Johor can get your Spore digital broadcast with the right equipment like the Draco STB.
