This question at least I can contribute as I'm searching it yesterday.

http://www.mda.gov.sg/Public/Digital...oReceiver.aspx
http://www.mda.gov.sg/Public/Digital...RReceiver.aspx

I think the link in the first page has some characters removed, thus, not working.

Ok... Thanks alot

Guys.

I can confirm that StarHub TV channel 154 is Channel 8 HD.

Just switched to the channel, toggled the audio, and it is the same output as Channel 8 SD. And there is also a subtitle option.

Indeed... hopefully it can be unencrypted and receivable by DVB-C tuners soon.

I'm pleased to report that it works in receiving the Singapore channels. Just one quirk is that for HD channels, the audio do not automatically come on, but that's because somehow, the audio is not under the default (English) option, so we have to manually select to the alternative audio channel when we tune into a HD channel.

dvb t2

Hallo guys. i am able to receiver ALL Digital Channels such as HD5 , HD8 , HD Suria , HD Vas , CNA, Okto and channel U via Draco SET TOP BOX in Batam Indonesia.currently i have 3 receivers for testing and the results are great. I use my Outdoor Antenna face to Singapore. I can get the strenght signal (92%). Firstly i bought Getmecom in jakarta, it supports DVB t2 indonesia and DVB t1 singapore due to getmecom demulator msb 1230 (not support 1.3.1) and then i bought draco in singapore at best vivo. Viola... get all the HDs. and the last i have a dvb t2 brand mpeg4 made in china, it works also. i also sell dvb t2 receiver made from china (support singapore standard 1.3.1) in batam and price S$60 per unit. for 2 units S$110 only.

You are using the HD box right? Did you subscribe to HD services?

Since u are in Batam, can u check for me, what are the Indonesian DVB-T2 channels that are being broadcast now, and their raw frequencies? I would like to test my tuner and antenna to see if I can receive them from Singapore.

Yes to both questions.

Btw you only need the HD boxes. There is no need to sign up any HD packs.

I see. Do you have to do it every time or once?
