No. The loopout is to connect back the analogue signal to your TV. Same as Draco. Btw, if you're using pc tuner, just wait for a while. There are quite a number of DVB-T2 USB dongle out there. It is just a matter of time (driver update) for them to be compatible with Singapore standard.
dont think its driver issue ... because the signal decoding is at hardware level ... you need a new decoder chip design to handle the new standard

anyone noticed got new channels? okto, ch u and cna all in the 800+ range
Noticed few days ago. Was so puzzled did I press anything wrongly!@#$

Now got to re-arrange the button numbers, looks like they roll out the service even without these basic info fixed.

btw, anyone knows for DTV are we able to set 2 or more buttons to a channel, eg I want the auto scan channel 2 for HD8 to ALSO go to button 8.

Hi fellas
I just gotten myself a Draco HDT2-7300 set. Plugged it in, switched it on and there is no signal at all! I was using the provided antenna with booster on as recommended. Next I tried to plug it into my wall TV socket, nothing. Tried the FM socket, nothing. Even did a full auto scan but it reported no signal detected. Is my set defective?

I was unable to receive anything with the provided antenna until I bought Margon 2.0 antenna. With the Margon, can receive all DVB-T2 channels. Or u can also try Daiyo eu1702 antenna. The included antenna seems not so good imo.

How much is the Margon antenna and where did you buy it? Maybe my area has bad reception? In anycase, I did an auto scan and all the pre-set channels are gone. Will it revert back if I do a factory reset? Regards

I bought it at $39 at amk hub ntuc xtra. Nex ntuc xtra also got sell. The daiyo antenna cost $64 and is sold in most electronic store(courts, ntuc xtra etc). However no guarantee u will receive the signal even if u bought the antenna. The preset channel will appear back once signal is receive when u perform scanning next time

Did you use the short black cable extension that's suppose to connect to the between the stb and the antenna (the one with red led light). Also, did you turn on the power antenna options on the setting? when it is on, the red led light on the small cable should be on.

The included antenna is not so sensitive but if you can run co-axial cables to the window, and using the booster with 5V PS, you can get good signal.
I got 99% Signal and 98% quality with all DVB T2 channels.
See my post in DVB T2 settings in this forum with pics.

Hi leongws,
Can you let me know how far from the window is the location of the Margon?

Location A or B?

I might want to buy this antenna.

Thanks.

Mine is at location A. Its at 2nd section from top. u can see the black cable for the antenna. Inbetween the photo frame. Never try at location B as my tv not at there and cable not long enough. The Margon antenna cable is long at 3.5m but still too far to location B for me

Hi guys, so if I have a mounted tv in my bedroom using the starhub wall outlet, does this means a few years later, I would not receive any more TV signals? Even if I were to change to the dvb-t2 compliant TV?
