Hi,
Anyone able to receive OKTO, Chn U and CNA in AMK via HDB MATV?
I just brought a new tv with DVB-T2 but can only receive chn 5, chn 8 and Suria.

I found this article about passive re-broadcasting of TV signals (aka passive repeater). Will this work for DVB-T2 signals?

Tips to buy DVB-T2 set top box

There are two variants of made in China set top box in the market:

1) uses CPU MSD7816. In this model, there are two different kind of demodulator chips :MSB1230 and MSB1236. Older box comes with MSB1230 and does not support DVB-T2 v1.3.1. Newer box comes with MSB1236 and supports v1.3.1.

Sometimes, the seller refers the older model as T2600 and the newer model (with MSB1236) as T2660. Please note that newer box and older box use an identical casing and have an identical model name such as T2-8902, T2-8807 etc. Please look at their demodulator chip when you want to buy the box.

2) uses CPU Ali M3812. This is newer model and demodulator is integrated into the CPU. This model supports the DVB-T2 v1.3.1

UHF27 is back!
yes. UHF27 signal is good now. and the LCN channel number is also back (no more 800+).
seems like after we complaint here... then mcs fixed it

the next thing i'm gonna complain is why the channels already full hd but 4:3 contents still stretched? 4:3 contents should be displayed as 4:3 with black bars.

Because sinkies prefer their whole screen to be covered with image

If not they will feel 1/2 of the screen is bought for nothing
audiovideo and MoneyFace =p like this.

Thanks, I ordered one piece liao.

I need it to at least be sure that my antenna is working, so as to prepare to buy DVB-T2 tuner card later.
