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

If not, do manual scan and specify channel 47.
I am unable to receive Malaysia channels from the MATV, but can receive all from my own indoor antenna

That's weird, by right the MATV should be able to receive.

Sent from Redmi using GAGT
Yeah, coz I can receive grainy MY channels via MATV on analog

I switched back to MATV, no signal again for MY channels

Malaysia and Indonesia DTV reception

I believe we have enough interest to put all the info here.

For those who need basic info on getting digital TV in Singapore, please consult the main DTV thread:

Malaysia channels(incl. TV1, TV2, TV3, NTV7, 8TV etc.) are now broadcasting digitally via Channel 47 (682MHz)

But whether you can receive will depend greatly on your location. So if you don't get it, you know it's your home, not your TV.

So do we need 2 change the qam when scanning for my channels?
Nope. Set-top box will auto change if it can detect the signal. Most people cannot receive Malaysia ch 47 due to interference from Batam's SCTV which is also on ch47.

Only this antenna is working
.
Managed to get my dtv using this antenna coupled wif a usb amp on LG c7. Antenna needs 2 hang out of windows 😬 High floor city fringe. Honestly kinda disappointing coz only 2HD the rest still SD. Not really worth the effort unless looking for WC.

I see. I live at the north but surrounded by other blocks. Also need to put at window then can receive. For me it is ok as long as can receive 八度空间

I suppose Indonesian channels can also be received too ?
