Yup. No signal at all. Only tv moblie and signal darm bad. Watch at bus even more better.. LOL..
Should be able to complain to the HDB town council right? Previously I had problem receiving CNA signal with the roof top antenna...gave them a call and they send technician down to rectify the problem. But that was for normal TV signal....I'm not sure about HD signal though. No harm giving it a try.

its sounds exactly like calling up s-hub s-tel saying their internet connection is bad.

HDTV Tuner Setup and Reception Issues

Hi,
I am considering to get Draco HDTV stb and a indoor antenna.

Can anyone share their HDTV Tuner setup in Hougang, Yio Chu Kang or Sengkang area.

Is the reception clear?

Thanks.

Is the digital set-top box same as a HD set-top box?

Does it already comes with its own antennae or they are separate?


How much does one DRACO digital or HD set-top box cost and where can it be bought at a good price?


Tks in advance for kind advice!

even if it works in those area, it doesnt guarantee your area can receive due to neighborhood hdb blocks, your block/flat orientation and environment.
