Do you have similar information for the test channel? Keen to see its audio channels info because someone mentioned that the China stbs have no audio issue at the test channel. Thanks
Here you are:

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.
Other than brighter pic and louder audio (which is right volume) and Single language subtitles, i dun realise increase in clarity or sharpness

You people scrutinise pixel too much already. I don't see anything incriminating
I didn't scrutinise, and I did not find any sexpose yet. I just posted a reminder in case he didn't check.

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

if signal good, even cheapo less than $5 antenna oso will work
have tried such cheapo antenna with T2 b4, works fine
but the 1m long cable might be too short for some ppl, getting extension cable increase the cost, might as well get the last antenna below





still prefer the below antenna, comes with 6m long cable
got a few brands, but all same thing
price range from $8 to $12.90
soundtech brand most exp($15 to <$20) but comes with metal plates to clip on pole or windows grills
just get the cheapest one and use cable tie or wat lor

Those of u guys who have the Aliexpress DVB-T2 box, have u tried watching recorded clips of HD8 on the computer?

In particular, have u noticed that if the audio is left at the default 5.1 channel, the playback is accelerated and the sounds appear chipmunk-like, but if the audio is changed to stereo then playback is normal.

A matter of the codecs?

when u press the tv "info" button, is it showing "Dolby Digital" or "Stereo"?

for starhub 8(HD) test channel, today the quality is good, HD with dolby audio... after 6pm no more liao... they ended the testing.
they should continue the test channel during night prime time, so that more subscribers can test the quality.
It didnt state stereo or dolby digital but the default audio for the box is stereo but some channel shows that support Dolby will auto convert to dolby digital.
