Any problem with setting the audio for HD channels?
Same problem as Kiwi and the others are facing with regards to the HD audio. Moreover, my remote was buggy. Managed to get it working again today, after repeatedly hitting it with my hand. Maybe 1 or 2 buttons got stuck after pressing.

Antennae is Margon 2.0. Signal quality is about 2/3 for channels 27 & 31. Channel 29 is almost 100%.

Location : Toa Payoh, window facing south direction. BTW, rooftop MATV was able to receive the T2 signal too.

took some pictures of the three new Mediacorp HD channels now available on SingTel mio TV. No 8SD, SuriaSD and VasanthamSD channels on mio TV btw.
*TV screen is a little glaring*
Do double check the pictures in case u accidentally sexpose yourself, since the TV screen is glaring.

anyone knows where the latest firmware is?
Seller said they are now away for the CNY holidays, when they come back they will check with their engineers.

Upon being asked whether there's a website to check for device specifications and firmware, they said it's better not to try the other firmware, and to only use the firmware that they send us.

I guess we will have to be patient.

Btw does anyone notice that DVB-T2 does have very good picture quality even with signal quality as low as 30%?

Sometimes I even find the picture very watchable without even pixellations with the quality as low as 10% to 20%.

This is not the case with the DVB-T channels where pixellation occurs below signal quality of something like 80%.

You people scrutinise pixel too much already. I don't see anything incriminating

That's because T2 signal is even more robust than that of T1

Only 5, 8, Suria and Vas has HD, the others have to wait around 1 to 2 more years time. Yes the HD channels are now more brighter and clearer than their SD variant which i quite like.
