Nice ! I can receive all the channels from Malaysia now

682MHz
0800 TV3 HD
0801 TVAH
0802 NTV7
0803 8TV
0804 TV9
0805 BBC

698MHz
0806 TV1
0807 TV Okey
0808 RTM HD Sports
0809 BES
0816 TV2

But then:
Channels under 698MHz, their signal intensity fluctuate from 58% -> 62% -> 58% continously and signal quality also same thing but wider range between 70% to 100%. No issues with image and sound.

Channels under 682MHz, their signal quality is always 0% and the signal intensity keeps moving from 90% -> 91% -> 90%, and frequently there is no image, even if have also every 5-10 seconds will hang once

Shift antenna around 2 find optimum spot, add booster if haven’t done so.

It appears that you didn't enable "LCN" option? Cuz by right the channel number should be range from 101 until 123 (not in strict sequence).

Anyway, the Malaysian company that in charge for digital TV, MYTV Broadcasting, are very messed up now.
Many Malaysians across the country, including in Klang Valley, could not receive the second mux (698MHz) at all, or poor or fluctuating signal.
If you interested to read more, you can refer to this Lowyat Forum here. This particular topic talks about Malaysian digital TV.
https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?s...#entry92272889

MYTV are in progress in improving the signal reception across the country, but the way they manage it is basically terrible. And they did not properly inform the public on any ongoing issues, other than just inform viewers to rescan their digital TV sets. Why this happens, if you wonder? Well, it is somewhat related to politics during the Barisan Nasional era, which happens before Malaysia changes new government.

It depends on the make of set top box or tv tuner. My old Draco 7300 displayed the usual single digit no and 700s and 800s with LCN enabled. My Philips TV displays single digit no for MediaCop channels and 800s for 4 digital channels currently unidentified. 3 of the unidentified channels are on 540, 578 and 626 MHz. The last one is elusive, still can't catch the frequency (see my earlier post)

Edit: typo error for 540 - should read as 546.

Referring to this link:
https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/1...7-post184.html

Let me identify the frequencies based on what I know:
Here are the list of Apparatus Assignment (AA) for the Broadcast Station for Southern part of Peninsular Malaysia. So MCMC (Malaysia's MCMC is like Singapore's IMDA) assigned these frequencies (Tx Assign (MHz) for MYTV to transmit their DTT services. The list also includes signal repeater/relay in JB area as well.

Source: https://www.mcmc.gov.my/legal/regist...t=Region%20ASC
*Click "Region" to sort the order.

If you wonder, what happens after the Expiry Date? Well, I guess is, it's up to MCMC to extend the usage period for the tower at the designated frequency. But very likely it will be extended la...

So by right, if you detect any DTT frequencies in Singapore that are not listed in this list, then I can safe to say that it's not from Malaysia's MYTV then.

546MHz is MYTV DTT frequency for Gunung Ledang, Johor transmitter.
This frequency is meant for DTT coverage for northern Johor, Melacca and southern part of Negeri Sembilan.

As you can see on the list above, Malaysia's DTT doesn't transmit on 578MHz and 626MHz frequency for Southern Johor. According to MCMC, Malaysia's frequency range for analogue and digital TV range is from 470-742MHz. After Malaysia's analogue TV switches off this coming Q3 2019, it shall be reduced to 470-698MHz to make way for 700MHz 4G/5G mobile service.

And so happen, 578MHz (ch34) and 626MHz (ch40) are even number, while Malaysia don't transmit >742MHz onwards for both analogue and digital TV, then I think I am safe to say that 578MHz, 626MHz and 746MHz are DTT frequencies belongs to Batam, Indonesia?

As for 546MHz, I think you might be receiving overspill signal, either from Malaysia's Gunung Ledang transmitter, OR it might be one of Batam's DTT frequency, since it is on even number? Hmmm...

Thanks for your clarification on the AA for Southern Part of Peninsular Malaysia. Based on the info posted by @mclubbie at #post 107, I understand that he is using the NWS set top box approved by IMDA which displays the LCN for MediaCorp channels.

So it looks there is a difference between the display for IMDA and MCMC sets.

As for those unidentified channels, I understand from another source #post 3748 that

"For digital TV, Malaysia will get 39,41,43,45,47,49,51,53 for clear frequency and share 21-26 with Indonesia.

Indonesia got 40,42,44,46,48,50,52,54 for clear frequency and share 21-26 with Malaysia.

Singapore get its exclusive block of 27-38.
"

So the origin of the unidentified channels, shall I say, is as good as anybody's guess?

Edit: my apologies for a typo in my earlier post. The 540 MHz should read as 546 MHz which is Ch 30. Together with 578 MHz Ch 34, they are under the control of IMDA.

Need to do Manual Search again, may I know Which Channels to search?
The NewMedia DTV Box can only do Manual Search to add non-Singapore Channels.

I've tried, after full search, the Channel list will be refreshed and only left Singapore Channel, All previously Malaysia Channels were gone. The BOX s free provided one.
