Already answered above in Post #12 & 13 of this thread...

All Malaysian channels are in the same frequency. Scan that frequency, it's able to either find all or none.

I think I should give my own input. Since I live in a HDB at the lower floors in the East, I can say that Funke DSC-550's 40KM radius can't get me any Malaysia or Indonesian channels.

Then, I went with another person's suggestion to buy the 50 mile (80km radius) antenna from Amazon. The 1byone Amplified Antenna. It too did not get me any Malaysian and/or Indonesian channels.

It clearly seems to be based on your location as well as if there are any obstructions in that area.

So here's my 2 cents having wasted my own money on these 2 antennas.
Amazon's return policy is top notch. Harvey Norman's where I bought the Funke antenna, not so much. Did not even reply to my return request.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

If you are still keen to experiment (they will have HD transmission eventually), you can try with outdoor antenna, as the malaysian digital tv transmission is on outdoor reception mode.

For Funke, they have some nice looking outdoor antennae. You will have better chance if it can be positioned facing north.

Google "outdoor tv antenna" and you will find a wide range of selection.

East does not mean South. Not the bottom of Singapore. In the middle and closer to the right side of Malaysia as well as Batam which is below Singapore.

My experience paints a more realistic picture for most who lives in a HDB estate as opposed to living in low lying areas like our Seletar Hills guy now wouldn't it?

I think reception of Malaysian/Indonesian digital channels depends not just on location but also on your DVB-T2 tuner.
Initially when they were testing DVB-T transmissions, i could receive both Malaysian and Indonesian channels on my Humex STB. (I posted on HWZ forum)
Now with cheap China brand DVB-T2 STB the receiver picks up signals ('strength' and 'quality' goes on and off) but doesnt tune-in to the stations.
Probably tuner sensitivity is low.
Can only tune in to Mediacorp stations.
BTW i am located at east-coast and should have no problem receiving Batam digital tv,

Malaysia and Indonesia DTV reception

Connected my starter kit to the MATV antenna - working

Now trying to scan Malaysia channels. Do I need to specify which channel no. before I scan ?

If you do full scan should be able to get Malaysia channels.

If not, do manual scan and specify channel 47.
