Bro, if your TV do not have the hardware itself, which is the DVBT2 tuner, how do expect it to decode the signals ?

An antenna only enables the receiving of the signals. Not decoding it.

Not sure what TV r U using now but if your TV does not have built in DVBT2, I presume your TV's age should be at least 3 or more years old ?

If that's the case, time to upgrade if you r an AV buff.
Unless this is just a secondary TV.

Mine arrived. Not bad for $25. But wife doesn't like the additional TV box.

If I use the 3m $25 one in the below link, can it work on its own without dtv box? my TV which do not have dtv built in

Nope, no TVBT2 tuner inside. Using a Samsung plasma.

Which brand has a better user GUI? Think need to change mine, don't like the GUI for the one i just bought.

thanks all! zoomed into this one in the end:

http://list.qoo10.sg/item/NEW-CHIPSET-SUPPORT-RECORD-AND-TIMER-RECORD-SINGAPORE-HD-DVB/466002984

Feedback about the quality of this item. Used for 1 month and video card went cranky already.

GUI also not good. Won't encourage anyone to buy.

Looking for a better quality one.

Should I try NewMedia Solutions or AC Ryan?

Need to check with fellow bros here...
Those whom are using DVBT2 settop box connecting to their "still strong" old TV ones... Which model in the market now supports Programmable Video Recording via RCA connection outputs huh?
Majority seems to be only record thru USB thumb drive connections only?
