Did MediaCorp change the location of the transmitters recently?

I ask this, cos recently I had to relocate my DIY directional antenna to another sweet spot as the previous location suddenly failed to be the sweet spot. :o

Yes it did. I cannot scan channels and had to switch position

Thanks for confirming. :o

I was wondering why my HD5 recordings failed, so in the end it was due to no signal. :o

Luckily I had parallel recording from CH5. :o

It can be at the same premises but either the power of the transmitter was changed, or the location of the transmitter was changed, albeit slightly within the same premises.

This can make a big difference to the signal travel patterns.

DVB -T2 Signal Coverage Concern
 
"...4 Given the massive scale of this nation-wide project, we will be progressively rolling out the digital broadcasting infrastructure. In other words, when MediaCorp begins its digital broadcast in December this year, some Singaporeans will be able to enjoy the benefits of Digital TV, while others may have to wait until full island coverage is completed. Further details will be announced by MediaCorp and the Media Development Authority (MDA) later this year..."

Recently bought a DVB-T2 receiver box from ebay, scan and got a list of channels:

001 NDP
002 Beautiful Singapore
003 Taiji
004 CNN (scrambled)
005 BBC World (scrambled)
:
:
009 HBO (scrambled)
010 Fox Movies (scrambled)
:
:
018 Discovery Channel (scrambled)
:
:

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.
