Only the first 3 channels above are viewable but they are just looping and replaying the same clip. Where are the usual channel 5,8,news Asia, etc?

I am able to get the usual channels using an older USB PCTV stick on DVB-T.

Does it mean that the DVB-T2 box I bought is working properly? Need to wait till December 2013 to get those usually channels?

Thank you for any insights and pardon if the question is flawed.
Just want to know if that the DVB-T2 (seems to be made for Russia) is something I can use in future...?

Does your DVB-T2 box support DVB-T mode too? If not, then u will have to wait until MediaCorp broadcasts the DVB-T2 channels.

Just like our "first" class fibre system and previously the digital TV on the bus. This would not be a surprised to me. Typically these people talk and plan, but do not implement. I hope they better have a good coverage island wide this round and do not end up like to poor Telco coverage on hand phone system.

Windowlover 28-09-2013 08:20 AM

That the problem .. So usually no official launch date inform to cover their backside.. :s13:

Hi all, I bought a philips HDTV recently. Last night i was able to watch hd5 for a while (10mins) before the tv suddenly black out and said no signals. All my other channels were affected too.

When I tried retuning it either dvb-t I can only receive normal channels, no hd5. When I tried dvb-c, no channels are found. Do u know what could be cashing the issue? I have already change the cord but still like that....

Does anyone have any experience with the philips tv? Hope to get your advice...... Thanks so much.

For DVB-T u have to tune using the aerial antenna.

For DVB-C u have to tune using the StarHub wall antenna (the box in the wall).

Which type of antenna port do you have - hdb, starhub or your own antennae as in landed property?

Did you auto-tune the tv?

I suggest we got to be patient. It take awhile before it would be implemented island wide.

from now till end of the year not much time left. I wonder whether IDA will fine Mediacorp if DVB-T2 transmission island-wide by year end is not rolled out completely. It was after all a 1.5 year project timeframe (announced june 2012)

you are right, MDA is the regulatory body for this :)

cscs3 12-10-2013 01:53 PM

Regulatory body in Singapore means nothing. At most you get a fine. Just like recent Singtel case. Believe they pass their audit every year anyway.

i see that the government's stance in ensuring service to the people is very different from yesteryears. if fine, i am sure it's not going to be cheap

DVB-T2 Launch Date Still Unknown
 
Deafening silence. The dvb-t2 transmission is scheduled for Dec 2013. Yet with less than 2 weeks to go, there is still no official announcement.

Given that other agencies such as LTA would have big PR exercises before projects completion such as MRT stations, expressway and road widening, the silence is surprising.

The other surprise is that tv makers are not publicising their new tv sets' dvb-t2 readiness - silent so that unsuspecting buyers do not realise that the old models that they buy will be obsolete soon, as far as the digital tuner is concerned?

petetherock 18-11-2013 08:03 PM

Silence implies they aren't ready...
Silence by dealers indicate they have lots of stock to clear..

Anyway, no rush, let the version 1 firmware and other issues iron out before you jump in..

From what I read in other threads, it seems that buyers or potential buyers are more concerned with PQ and other qualities rather than dvb-t2 readiness.

mrsun18 19-11-2013 10:14 PM

This is the reply from MediaCorp when I enquired on the channels to be used for the new dvb-t2 transmission, to prepare our condo's matv for the new format:

All our 7 MediaCorpís channel will be available on 3 frequencies during the Digital Switch On. The three frequencies are Ch27 (518 to 526MHz), Ch29 (534 to 542MHz) and Ch31 (550 to 558MHz).

Samsung TV
 
Hi, am new around here.

just wanna ask a few questions. i just recently bought a samsung 40" 40f5500 model tv. i plugged my TV in using the RCA wire into the wall mounted point and i did a scan. all i could get was TV1 and one sport channel, Normal Channel 5,8,U. What am i actually missing to receive HD5? i believe the TV that i bought has a decoder inside it.

does the problem lies with my TV set?

chuppachop 25-11-2013 11:33 AM

U can start reading from post #1, the wall mounted point connects you to the SCV cable network, which does not have HD5.

The SCV cable network has all the digital free-to-air MediaCorp channels which can be tuned by a TV that has DVB-C tuner. HD5 used to be encrypted but is now unencrypted like the other SD channels.

If your TV is a DVB-T2/T only tuner then u will need to connect to an aerial antenna to receive HD5 and other digital channels.
