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.
Honestly if I am at my com, there are many nice overseas drama that i can watch online. I do not see the need to have DVB-T2 in my com. T2 is for my bedroom TV. My main TV has starhub and its a matter of time that starhub will be in HD too.

similar design product with front image of set in the link below. Looks like 1 usb port, 1 ir senor and 2 leds.

Dvb-t Freeview Receiver Box HDTV

The product in the link is a DVB-T set top, not the DVB-T2 set top that we use. Do not buy it!!!!!

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
Thanks for your valuable advice. What about android based XBMC box like this one?

DVB T2 Smart Andorid 4.2 Google TV Box with Remote ARM 8726MX 1080P Terrestrial Digital TV Receiver HDMI USB WIFI 3D DVB T2-in Satellite TV Receiver from Consumer Electronics on Aliexpress.com

The chipset is AML8726-MX or they work differently from TV box?

The booster is included in the box. It is actually an adapter that have a output that allows it to be powered by usb ports(through TV/Draco STB etc).

I only tested the Margon 2.0, no idea of the other 2. But at the price of $39 and the ability to receive digital channels
(for my case), I cannot complain much liao. It is compact and doesn't look like an antenna at first glance.
