my tuner does not display the channel no. & freq~ It was grouped under "unknown", while the rest of the existing digital channels are grouped under "Mediacorp"~

Thanks. Guess have to press MediaCorp or MDA for the info as owners, such as those in landed proerties and private condos, who use their own antennae would welcome the details to know if modifcations are required.

If you are talking about tuning to dvb-t2, then you need a dvb-t2 tuner.

I don't think there is any tv set with dvb-t2 tuner in sg at this moment. I am sure the makers would advertise big big when the time comes.

Whether there is a need for additional antenna or modification is not known until the information is available. Regardless of the transmission, new tv set with dvb t2 standard or set top box will be required except for pay tv customers.

When you're watching under Ch 29, there is a scrolling text telling you to tune into Ch 38.

Old: Ch 29 (now left with black screen liao)
New: Ch 38

i just realised i can view the freq setting by changing the channels grouping~
the previous dvb-t2 trial was on 602Mhz~ it was the same freq as the previous TVmobile~

if existing pte ppties owners already able to recv FTA digital channels, i dun think they need special antenna~

I reckon the existing antennas will still be applicable since the modulation into analog signals (to send over the air) will still be the same... ie a DVB-T2 signal @ 610Mhz can be received by an antenna that can receive a DVB-T signal @ 610Mhz. It's just the receiver that needs to support DVB-T2 in order to decode the DVB-T2 signals. :o

Chan 37! This was what a tv maintenance contractor told me, but I didn't believe him then.

There are specialised matv systems which cater solely for the channels to be received (read post #1 http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/ho...614256-18.html). They will not be able to receive new channels not catered for.

These type of systems ars expensive and are only economically feasible when they serve large number of units, as in the case of hdb or private condo. Landed property owners are not expected to install this kind of system.

On the other hand, there are plenty of bungalows worth $10M or $20M in Singapore. I won't rule out the possibility of such owners installing these specialised systems.
