living somewhere near this area, between buangkok and compasspoint

bought a draco ant-600 to try on my dvb-t2 ready tv, no signal

$29 down the drain :(
Face your antenna towards buangkok on the window.

Hi all, need some help here. Just bought a amazon basic extreme antenna but realized the plug is not compatible with the tv here. Anyone can advise what is the adaptor to buy and where you can buy good quality ones? Thanks

Went into samsung service menu, and under tuner saw these options, wonder which option are you using?

S_T2C_G
D_T2CS2
S_T2CS2_G
S_T2C
S_T2CS2
S_TCS2
S_TC

Mine did not require any adjustment to service menu. It was already there when i got my TV. :s12:

u r not the only one lor~ i already tune to DVB-C channels 2.5yrs back with my bro Philips TV~ back then all mediacorp channels on DVB-C were already un-encrypted however they were in SD format, HD5 remained encrypted then~ after few yrs, starhub finally made HD5 un-encrypted early this yr~

when starhub made 8HD, Suria HD & Vasan HD available on 28 Aug, i tuned his tv to recv them on the very day~ i'd posted it somewhere in this thread also~

i believe there are many Philips TV users also enjoy the same thing~ :s22:

Cck north suppose to be q4 2014 one. Tmd they push back.....

At least not as bad as the eastern half of bukit merah. supposed to be ready by q4 2014 along with the other half of bukit merah end up pushed to Q4 2015 :s22:

I think they anyhow change area deadlines and redraw the map boundaries as they please, like a certain political party. I think we may see more of that in Q3 2015 when 6 areas are supposed to be ready. Cut into smaller pieces and push back deadline...

Just remove my 20m long antenna from my outside window and place it on the side wall next to my TV.

No problem receiving all the Digital Channels except cannot watched Malaysia and Indonesian Channels liao.

But how often do I watch those programs or our MediaCorp Channels ?
Only once in a blue moon as I usually download from internet and watch...........................:D

Mediacorp is taking too long to roll out the network in such a small country.. it kill of the interest on switching to digital.....if anyone aware the dvbt2 scene in thailand, they had move so much faster to roll out, more than 40 programs avail till date, the government give out digital set top box to all household ( till date >8mil receive the voucher out of 20+ mil household) and redeem from major supermarket and 7-11......hiaz...resident like me staying in east has to wait till 2016??? Is it a joke?? If mediacorp cant roll out on time, please change next better player...
