you can only receive digital TV in KL area (RTM test broadcast), or Johor (singapore TV)

you will need a DVB-T tuner and normal UHF antenna

Hi .. I'm using LG Model SL90 LED TV (with built-in DVB-T tuner) and managed to receive the digital signal from RTM successfully.

The trick is to use samll antenna, the kind that look like the one installed on the top of the MyVi ... :-)

Anyway, I lives next to Tesco Kajang.

Keep trying & Good Luck ...

Interesting to know that there is High Definition DVR arouund. It will be good if Media Prime is also embracing the same DVB-T system. I guesses we still have to wait & see as always.

Currently I'm still looking for DVR HD to enable me to record 1080i full HD football game from Astro byond decoder.
Any idea where I can secure one ? Ignoring the Astro PVR, for cost cutting.

Thanks

I finally hacked into the service menu of my LG LD series (2010 model) TV to enable the DVB-T tuner and got it to work. Many models of these series seem to have the tuner disabled by default. If the DVB-T tuning can't be accessed, either its disabled or no D tuner. But mine got the tuner. Managed to tune and acquire some TV and Radio channels. Not bad at all but transmission are sill 4:3 format and no better than Astro picture quality. Certainly better than with the analog antenna reception. I believe its all trial run till dunno when.
I now have to look out to acquire a suitable DVB-T antenna as my existing terrestial antenna leaves a lot to be desired at this point of time. In short, its in shitty state.
Malaysia is SO DAMN SLOW to implement latest technology.

How do you actually tune into digital TV? Mind to share simple steps? How do you know it is not analog that you actually receiving?

By pressing MENU button of the LED LG Model SL90 TV remote controller, as series of menu will pop up on the screen.

Select the SET UP menu followed by selecting AUTO TUNING.

The instruction will then poped up asking us to connect the external antenna.

Selecting the START menu will start the Auto Tuning processes, both Analogue & Digital transmissions as detected by the TV Set/Antenna.

After successfull Auto Tuning prosess, selecting one of the TV channel will cause the TV screen to show a text e.g. for RTM TV1 the text will be: DTV MPEG SD 800 TV1 and so on for other channels.

My RTM DVB-T signal has got the following channels:-
1. RTM1
2. RTM2
3. TV-i
4. Games
5. EPG

I used to have the following channels but there are on and off. I guesses it is due to experinemtal channels
1. Mustika
2. Panggung &
3. Ilham

+ Radio Klassik Nasional ++ Radio

I beleives the best time to tune the Set is during night probably due to less intefering signals.

Good luck with your ACRyan HDVR tuning ...

How is the quality of RTM2 (and other channels)? Are they really in HD,ie, 720 or 1080p? Or just somewhat better than analog?

I mentioned earlier, no better than Astro, not HD, but being digital transmission, its free of noise and interferences frequently a problem with terrestial TV reception.
A movie (e.g. avi or mkv) at real 720p will far exceed the existing DTV picture quality at this point of time. Thats my current view.

Agreed with bsl555.
It is transmitted in Standard Definition (SD) Digital Signal (DVB-T) and not yet in Full HD (1080i). Hopefully RTM will also be transmitting in Full HD in addition to SD currently they are testing.

Looks like you have not tuned your TV to receive the RTM's Digital TV signal to appreciate its quality ... tongue.gif

I think the digital signal in my area is very low, or just that I don't have a proper antenna for it. Working on something now.
Latest: Dug out an old twin telescopic antenna (from on an old portable TV set), soldered a shorth length of 75ohm TV coax cable, then experimented on optimum position near the TV. No time to drag a cable to outside.
Signal strength 3%, Signal quality >90%, wierd readings but entirely viewable without packet drop or other ills. I guess its highest signal quality that matters. I think my area is low signal. What to do? all this still experimental or beta, nothing definite.

I just realised by comparing Astro broadcast and RTM DVB broadcast, it appears RTM DVB can be BETTER quality! Why? NON Astro Beyond set top box connects to TV either by S-Video (best PQ) or the common analog yellow color RCA (fair PQ). This is the limitation of the old Astro decoder. Astro Beyond have HDMI which is ideal so far. Latest LCD TV's are doing away with S-Video input and that leaves the RCA socket only which limits PQ greatly and NO way you're gonna get HD PQ from old Astro decoder. RTM DVB-T is DIRECT broadcast and received by your latest DTV set, no cables, direct and as good as it gets. Its up to them if they want to provide HD transmission. DTV is the way to go, no more the old ills of analog broadcast PQ, i.e. interference noise, snow, raster, ghosting or fuzzy pictures.

Astro is using DVB-S (Satellite) & RTM is using DVB-T (Terrestrial). Both are of the same family, DVB (Digital Video Broadcast) system.
I'm watching RTM TV2 Disney Handy Manny in DVB-T now (Wed. Morning 0900 HRS Mal, June 22nd). The picture is crystal clear. thumbup.gif

Another difference is that the same Handy Many program broadcasted in DVB-S (Astro) will suffers a noticeable lost in its Audio Volume.
Not sure whether this due to DVB-S designed specification or purposely configured by the broadcaster. Astro engineering personel could possibly answer this puzzle ... icon_question.gif

The broadcast (in other words, delivery of digital media) may have technical similarities or like you say, same family. Nevertheless, its the end result that shows some difference for better or worse very dependent on the set top box electronics which may have limitations.
The Astro box is outdated and been around for so long as far as anyone can remember, offering only analog outputs or S-Video at best, no HDMI or Component output unless upgrade to Beyond package. I think DVB-S require a dish and LNB (much like the common Astro Dish) but DVB-T can work with a UHF indoor or outdoor antenna. Its critical that the UHF antenna is designed to cover the UHF frequency band required by DVB-T, thus simplifying simpler and possibly cheaper setup. LNB's and dish are NOT cheap in practice.
So there you have it, I see superior PQ in this DTV trial run so far. Not the very best but worthwhile and its free, provided your TV is DTV capable. I'm still looking around for a proper antenna, and pondering about problem of poor signal strength in my area.
I suppose, the TV to lookout for these days is a fully integrated TV with DTV, Analog TV, Internet/Network capable, Bluetooth ready, Wifi ready, USB Media Player all rolled into one for full potential. Have I left out anything? Don't tell me Windows 7 incorporated... laugh.gif

If you haven't bought a DVB-T tuner yet, don't consider. The stupid SKMM is considering switching to DVB-T2, so it's not really worth it now. Their DMB-T signal apparently already ceased, I powered up my Pontus this morning and scanned, and found zero signals. Not sure about TV3, haven't kept track on their signal in ages.

If you already have a DVB-T1 tuner, the frequency is now 649MHz.

My decoder (AverMedia AverTV Hybrid 1080i) can only pick up these channels on last scan:
1. TV1
2. TV2
3. Muzik Aktif
4. Berita Aktif
5. Panggung
6. Ilham.

One thing that just crossed my mind: What's the point of digital if the TV station only know how to screw shows over and cancel shows in the middle of a season?

Please bear in mind, DTV broadcast is UNofficial transmission, say beta test run and its FOC. Viewers are subjected to their whim and fancy during this trial run.
There's 2 DTV channels, Channel 44 & 46. You've to align your antenna to receive these 2 signal band transmission. Align wrongly and either you get none or one channel.

Why cant we use external antenna with booster? What is the reason we need to use small antenna?

BTW, what is the resolution currently RTM broadcast using DVB-T? Is it DVD resolution?

Nobody said that you cannot use youe existing antenna.
If your current boosted antenna provides you with a good picture & audio quality on analoge TV, there is a great tendency that it will also giving you a good signal to your DTV.
Small antenna is very convenient and can be placed next to you DTV. In my case, it provides very good reception with crystal clear picture. Much much better then analogue TV.

RTM2 DVB-T trial broadcast is in MPEG SD 4:3 576i and not 1080i as mentioned earlier.

Anyhow, have you managed to tune to RTM DVB-T Broadcast ? hmm.gif

Thanks for the heads up. I'm aware that it's experimental.

But you sure it's channel 44? Last I check the frequency moved to 549MHz. Or is that because I'm using boosted indoor antenna?

As for the other channel, my decoder can't find it. Is it DVB-T2?

Btw, my remark about how TV shows are cancelled mid-season refers to current analog stations like TV1 and NTV7.

Dear RAMChYLD, let me provide answer on behalf of bsl555.
A quick check on my DTV setting reveals the following:-
1. Ch 44 provides: Music Active, ILHAM & PANGGUNG
2. Ch 46 provides: TV1, TV2, TV-i, Games, EPG ++ Radios
Music Active, ILHAM & PANGGUNG were previously on channel 46.

So bsl555 is right. Currently RTM is using two (2) channels for DVB-T testing i.e. Ch44 & Ch46.
I doubt it is on DVB-T2 as yet.

As for ezlife,
guesses you needs somebody strong to assist you ... biggrin.gif

I understand DVB-T2 is with extended perimeters and standards over DVB-T. Whether the broadcasters intend to use the perimeters that are not included in DVB-T, left to be seen, but I guess its not so soon, as full compatibility have to be assured. Unsure if latest TV's are DVB-T2 capable. It must be of utmost importance for everyone to receive the broadcast as long as the TV is equiped with DVB-T or add-on a set top box.
I'm also in the learning process, just foolin around with my DTV capable TV. Problem is I'm now believing the signal strength where I live is currently very low, that I've to explore the antenna issue to increase the signal strength. Ok...got time then tinker with it, otherwise its viewable for now.

Noted with thanks. smile.gif

Truth to be told, I have not used my decoder for a while. Most likely it all changed again already. I'll rescan when I get home.

Although I wish they'd carry better programming on ilham. All half-assed local cartoons only hmm.gif

The last I tried was 3 years back. I had a DVB-T usb stick. Just plugged the regular rooftop yagi antenna into it and scanned on my PC. Found 4 channels at the time. Just make sure you're pointed at KL Tower.

At the time it was MPEG-2 (probably still is) and they were looking to upgrade to MPEG-4 before launching. Dunno how's the progress so far.

Pinnacle's Movie Box HD, their website say it is HD but not sure it can record full HD or not.
and than for the video input connector, it has is s-video, composite-video, and DV but without HDMI
can connect it to astro byond decoder and record astro's HD programme? anyone using this product?

Walking through the electical store nowdays expose us with many selection of TV sets.
Leaving behind the old fashioned Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TV behind, current TV sets utilise Plasma, LCD, LED/LCD with Standard Defifition (SD), HD Ready & Full HD technology. TV set with SmartTV & 3D capability is the latest trend.

All in all, externally they looks the same, regardless whether Analog or Digital TV.
What is the difference between the two ?

The easiest way is to inspect its detail specification and look for the word built-in TUNER. Nowdays in Malaysia, if you can find the word DVB-T then you are lucky. It is a Digital TV. Else if you can only find word such as PAL, SECAM then it is Analog only TV. Some TVs might have both Digital & Analog tuner built in.

Asking the salemen may pose us with another problem. They don't even know what DVB-T is ? They don't even have TV antenna installed to do the demo. What they are doing is playing low quality pasar malam the so called DVD/Blueray copy of movie into Full HD 1080i capable TV. Try not to be fooled by them ... sad.gif

Without built-in digital tuner, you can still receive the digital transmission provided you have an external tuner or set-top box (currently not available in Malaysia), that process the signal, turn it into Audio/Video and deliver it to TV screen via HDMI cable.

Thanks

I reckon a wise consumer have to be smart, not buy blindly and brush up on the latest technology, details and what a new TV have to offer. Otherwise only to some degree of personal disappointment later on that expensive purchase didn't do justice. No Digital tuner...bah! blink.gif mad.gif
Yup, I did come across some sales fellas in some big chain shop who don't know next to nuts about DVB-T or whether the TV is DVB tuner featured. I had to ask for the remote and roll through the tuning menu to see whats available. In my case my 2010 model LG TV wasn't DTV enabled but luckily after some research I enabled it through the service menu (huge learning process and with trial n error getting to it. LG Malaysia NEVER gave me a proper answer when I queried them about it. Twice in fact. Never mind, its done. Ironically, recently accompanied a buddy to buy one of the latest LG smart TV and its got DTV enabled, although my buddy doesn't care about it, primarily for Astro and DVD movies. Thats the story for now.
I still got to climb the roof and align my antenna, its maligned now.

If you are using GNU/Linux with compatible DVB-T card or USB dongle, you can use the attached channels.conf which I enjoying the DVB-T with Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid PRO (PCTV 340e) on GNU/Linux with Linux kernel version 3.1.0. Viewing and recording the DVB-T stream using MPlayer (svn latest).

I generated the channels.conf using this command.
CODE
# w_scan -c MY -X > /etc/channels.conf


Current channel listing

CODE

The single most essential matter to receive free to air DTV or analog transmission is a PROPERLY and QUALITY antenna system mounted on the roof of home. Nothing beats this in all the donkey years I've been moving home or DIY install the antenna system.
My current antenna system was installed with a full VHF and UHF Maspro Japan antenna system with mixer and booster system thereon the line distributed with splitters to various TV points in the home (provided by house developer). Its served me well since 1997, although recently I had to re-align the direction which was blown off course by strong winds.
Last I enquired, at Pasar Rd for DX antenna system comparable to mine (MINUS the booster system) is around Rm500+. About the same I paid for in those days.
This is near ultimate solution for practical and long term.

Yes, good antenna may help to get good reception. In my case, I able to pickup DVB-T signals if I placed the small antenna which come with the USB DVB-T receiver, near the window, with the help of 1.5m USB extender. At my house, near Bangi and my office at Bandar Sri Damansara, have DVB-T coverage, and a small antenna is enogh, but, sometime the stignal still dropped. smile.gif.. DVB-T signal does not effect much by rain or thick clouds, where I can enjoy it, when my ASTRO receiver cannot get signal due to thick clouds.

TQ.


Added on December 19, 2011, 4:15 pmBTW, I love listening "KLASIK NASIONAL' digital radio, while working. smile.gif It is in 128 kbps MP3 stream, and I can record and use it without any convertion in between. Last year, the audio stream was at 192 kbps!!.

Well, Astro works beaming down through clouds, whereas DVB-T works under the clouds isn't it?
Yes, people have different reception strength at different places and not all are exactly ideal, especially in crowded urban and full of high rise around homes blocking transmission signals.
I'm really hoping all TV channels go digital very very soon. I'm really looking forward to it, targetted 2015 is too long to wait. Damn slow actually. Its been quite flawless transmission most of the time.
The big question is lots of people have old TV's and cost of additional DVB box. Cost, cost...always a big question in Malaysia.

Some high end LCD TVs have DVB-T option/module. But, I cannot find any model which has built-in DVB-T tuner, in Malaysia.

Yes, RTM starts DVB-T broadcast officially in 2012, and yes 2015, all TV broadcasts will be on digital. By the time, DVB-T2 or T3 will be the standard. smile.gif

My LG TV 2010 model had DTV tuner built in but disabled. I enabled it. LG didn't want to divulge any info about it here for their own selfish reasons. Last checked with another LED model, its enabled. I think other manufacturers may have it but you must check with the company. I think most TV sales assistants in shops are ill trained about this DTV thing.

Not that I am aware of. Currently RTM is testing it's DVB-T broadcast via KL tower's transmition. I can pick up the signal from my house in Cheras, but unfotunately the signal wasn't really strong, my reception quality is kind of poor.

Anyway I run a channel scan an hour ago, found out that they are testing HD channel named 'RTM HD'

The 'RTM HD' does not seem to simulcast with RTM1 nor RTM2 but rather playing some local music videos.

Currently RTM are testing their SD channel using DVBT and coming with DVBT-2 with MPEG4 and interactive using HBBTV.
There are 6 SD channels and 1 HD channel.

U can receive the SD signal from KL Tower. 7 TV channels and 7 radio channels. Use uhf antenna.

For HD, maybe will adopt 720 like UK / Europe.

The currently SD TV test line up:

1-Music Active
2-Pelangi
3-Panggung
4-Sinergi HD
5-TV1
6-TV2
7-TVi

The also test datacasting like Berita Aktif, FOREX, Stocks, Cuaca, and calender activities.

For the radios transmission u can also receive the informative slideshow like Taiwan and New Zealand.

If u are using dvbt tuner now when malaysia broadcaster launch the digital broadcasting using dvbt2, u will not be able receive the digital signal like now.

U can also watch via streaming www.rtm.gov.my/maktif and www.rtm.gov.my/mobile

Ok, bought a LG 32LW4500 from Harvey Norman a few days ago mainly for gaming, but since this model has built in DVB-T receiver, I decided to plug antenna in to see what I can get.

It can pick up two extra channels that the AverTV STB cannot receive- EPG and Games. But it labels both channels as invalid service.

It did not detect any HD signal, SinErgi is received as SD signal.

Problem is, this model DVB-T is only DVB-T1. So if RTM HD is in DVB-T2, I cannot get sad.gif

Btw, how to get Windows to detect Digital Signal? Last I tried it stubbornly refuse to let me tune digital if I select Malaysia.

I'm in Klang and can receive using Indoor antenna with booster. So I assume Sungei Besi can receive also.

I hope they follow UK and keep DVB-T1 for normal signal and use DVB-T2 only for HD. Since I just bought this TV, if they change only two months down the road, hancurlah. LG didn't say this model has DVB-T2 tuner. Otoh, LG didn't say this model support NTSC signal either, but it does.

There is no issue DVBT 1 or 2 because its about their signal compression at their station. But the problem is about mpeg2 and mpeg 4 on your tuner. Now they using mpeg2 and will turn to mpeg4. For HD Sinergi channel they set up tv platform and test transmitt via sd before they plug in the real hd encoder then they will transmit direct hd 720p. i want to see olympic london and hope they will test and take direct hd to sinergi channel like olyimpic china. all we need is get the hd decoder/tuner mpeg4.

DVB-T2 supports few new modulation algorithms not supported by DVB-T1 at all. And they ensure no backwards compatibility by using different continual pilot value and completely different error correction method.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVB-T2#System...nces_with_DVB-T

My TV supports MPEG4 stream over DVB-T1. It is possible to transmit MPEG4 via DVB-T1 since many European countries are doing that.

if you get a usb tuner, its all good, mpeg-2 and mpeg-4 is possible as the decoder part is software based handled by pc, not hadware... so if ure pc has a h264 decoder, the player can play it, u can decode it... tested before on my good old hauppauge tuner, worked fine... was able to save the h264 streams.

This thread pretty much confirms my suspicions.

DVB-T tuners are not forward compatible with T2.

Thing is, up until now, RTM has been doing HD in T1 (something Singapore, Australia and New Zealand is doing). But now, they planning to go completely T2 and shut off T1.

I'm trying to point out what kaspersky-fan said in a later post is wrong- T1 tuners can never receive T2 signals because it's more than codec changed- the transmission layer has also changed. T1 tuners do not recognize LDPC+BCH FEC (they only recognize Convolutional Coding + Solomon-Reed), and should have problem detecting the signal because the continual pilot (I presume is a pilot tone used by the tuner for locking) also changed.

Lol I guess my post was not clear to the point. The intention was to point out on the varying video compression codec on a consistent technology platform, whereby the usb tuner maybe of a specific technology like T1, but if broadcasters one day decided to switch from mpeg-2 to h264 or to wmv, it will still be viewable provided they are using the T1 technology and your pc player has the codecs installed.



btw, is RTM HD still up? my mini antenna couldnt pick up any HD channels... =x

Hmmm, no T2 test signal yet? The PCTV fell back to T1 BC mode and pick up T1 channels... hmm.gif

Or signal power too low that outside their super-secret test area cannot get? hmm.gif

Maybe by the time 2012 Olympics start, Digital already launch and we can see for ourselves if the predictions thrown around true or not biggrin.gif

Sec-gen lauds Japanese reps for helpful digital tips

KUALA LUMPUR: The Japanese experience is useful to Malaysia especially when it comes to broadcasting technology.

Commending representatives from the Japanese government, Malaysia's Information, Communications and Culture secretary-general Datuk Seri Kamaruddin Siaraf said the counterparts were very helpful when sharing their thoughts on the matter.

“We were briefed by our partners in Japan who switched from analogue to digital last year.

“Their experiences were very much needed and will help us in our migration in the future,” he told reporters on Wednesday after the two-day Asean + 3 Senior Officials Meeting Respon-sible for Information (SOMRI) held here.

Malaysia is phasing out analogue television broadcast in favour of digital broadcast. TV stations are expected to stop analogue TV broadcast by 2015 and go fully digital by the year 2020.

“This is a very important contribution from Japan,” Kamaruddin said.

Singapore Minister Calls For Common Specifications For DVB-T2 Receivers For Asean

SINGAPORE, March 1 (Bernama) -- Asean should develop common specifications for the DVB-T2 (Digital Video Broadcasting - Second Generation Terrestrial)receivers so that equipment manufacturers can benefit from economies of scale.

In making the call, Senior Minister of State for Information, Communications and the Arts, Grace Fu Hai Yien said this in turn will lower the cost of set-top boxes for consumers.

"With digital broadcasting promising to provide the public with better viewing experiences, we also need to ensure that Asean content remains engaging to our audiences.

"More can be done to promote co-productions of high-definition content among producers in Asean. We can leverage on each other's strengths and develop content that appeals to the Asean sensibility as well as international audiences," she said in her address the 11th Conference of Asean Ministers Responsible for Information (AMRI) and associated meetings in Kuala Lumpur.

The text of her speech was made available here.

Fu said last year, Singapore announced it was studying the feasibility of adopting the DVB-T2 standard for Digital Terrestrial Television.

"I am pleased to inform you that we have successfully completed the trial for the DVB-T2 standard and are looking into its nationwide implementation.

"We expect to offer high-definition broadcasting for all Free-to-Air TV channels in Singapore," she said.

Fu also said that she was glad to learn that some Asean members, namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Vietnam, have also decided to leapfrog to DVB-T2.

She also pointed out the Asian Development Bank will embark on the joint production of "Colours of ASEAN", a television series in High Definition (HD) that is expected for completion by December 2013.

She said Asean should support such collaborations and encourage the grouping's broadcasters to work together and continue participating in meaningful projects that celebrate the unity within Asean's diversity.

Such partnerships, she said will also give broadcasters an additional platform to learn from each other and enhance their production expertise.

Fu suggested that Asean can similarly explore creative and strategic partnerships between public and private broadcasters, content producers and government agencies. -- BERNAMA

Hope they don't even consider it. Because ISDB-T allow the use of CAM cards like assteruk.

See, in Japan, they still have TV license requirement. So their gomen use CAM card to potong those who dun renew their lesen.

Agreed. On one hand, maybe it will mean an increase in quality of shows airing on RTM channels. On the other hand, you know lah..

Found an interesting documentation by MTSFB regarding standards for the Free-To-Air Digital TV Transmission:

- now they stated DVB-T2 as standard.
- note that the last page showing the committee which basically cover major TV content providers, chair by RTM and follow by Media Prima.

Document contains a lot of struck out info and use of obsolete tech like PSTN (56k modem) and ISDN laugh.gif

Overly ambitious caused the project to stagnate for so long? tongue.gif

Hmmm, CI... not good. That's a CAM card system used by some European countries. Just added recently sumore.

So gomen thinking of somehow making a Lesen TV system again... No wonder considering ISDB also...

As for Hbb TV, I think not feasible. If you're in a small town, say, Mersing or one of the kampung in Tioman- how to get broadband?

Some high end LCD TVs have DVB-T option/module. But, I cannot find any model which has built-in DVB-T tuner, in Malaysia.

Yes, RTM starts DVB-T broadcast officially in 2012, and yes 2015, all TV broadcasts will be on digital. By the time, DVB-T2 or T3 will be the standard. smile.gif

So, for LCD TV & LED TV who doesn't have DVB-T/DVB-T2 tuner (also older CRT TV), need gov. to provide some STB. hmm.gif

P.S: Possiblity the emas channel (Media Prima channel on Unifi) would be available FTA on digital tv signal? hmm.gif icon_idea.gif

LCD TV & LED TV with only DVB-T tuner will also kena, because T2 signal not backward compatible with T1 receivers.

Well, confirm that the Sony EX520/720, as well as sharp LE830/835 and LG LW45 series have T1 tuner.

The new Sony HX/NX series may have T2 tuner, LG LW65 series may have T2 tuner, LG LW57 series confirm has T2 tuner.

Also, TVs sold in Malaysia may need to support PCMCIA CAM card slot in the future due to CI+. Which people have to buy from pos office and renew yearly, just like lesen TV in the old days. Unless...

Maybe they will make it so you must pay yearly for these channels. It's possible because of the CI CAM implementation, and France is testing out that idea according to Wikipedia. For example, 1,2,3,7,8,9, Al-Hijrah, WBC and TVi free and can receive without CAM card, but for Pelangi, Sinergi, Panggung, Emas and whatever new channels they launch in the future, must subscribe and renew yearly, or even monthly, or they disable your CAM card from receiving the channel.

TM yet to decide on role in digital TV plan
By Goh Thean Eu
09/05/2012
KUALA LUMPUR: Telekom Malaysia Bhd ™, the country's biggest fixed broadband operator, has yet to decide on which area of the country's digital terrestrial television broadcasting (DTTB) project it wants to take part in.

Bidding documents are already out and TM will have until July 24 to submit its proposal.

"We are still looking at it. The bid covers a wide scope, more than just back haul. We need to look at it closer before determining which part of the scope that we want to be part of," said group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa after TM's annual general meeting yesterday.

The proposal to build and operate the infrastructure and network facilities for digital terrestrial television, which will run on the 470MHz to 742MHz spectrum bands, involves the conversion of analogue technology to digital technology for all terrestrial TV stations.
Under the current setup, TV stations are individually licensed as content application service providers, whereby they install their own equipment at transmission sites.

By going digital, the players will need to migrate to a different band, which requires new infrastructure.

Therefore, terrestrial TV stations could be offering their contents by riding on the infrastructure built by the eventual bid winner.

The proposal is expected to attract many parties besides TM.

It is believed that other interested parties include Puncak Semangat Sdn Bhd, a company controlled by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary and whose technical partner is Kordia from New Zealand, YTL Communications Sdn Bhd (which has a partnership with US-based Sezmi) and Maxis Bhd with Astro.

TM, which had set up its own data centre in Hong Kong recently, said growth for its ICT and business process outsourcing (BPO) division was expected to be strong growth moving forward.

It is also considering setting up a data centre in Singapore.

Meanwhile, the company said its Unifi customer base had increased to more than 347,000 subscribers as at May 7, which is an increase of 46 per cent from the 236,501 Unifi customers at the start of the year.

TM's Internet business, which are mainly Streamyx and Unifi, made up about 22 per cent of its total revenue last year. Voice business, though declining gradually, contributed 41 per cent to TM's revenue.

"It's safe to say that contribution from our Internet business to group revenue this year, in terms of percentage, will be the same as last year. But, it could be better as the demand for our Internet services is really good," he said.

The group will be spending about RM2.5 billion in capital expenditure this year, the bulk of it will be to roll out Unifi network, as well as improve Streamyx services

This is bull. Digital or analog, it's still riding on UHF (470MHz-862MHz). Unless they go DMB-T/H and use L-band (between 1452.96-1490.624MHz).

60 firms said to have taken documents to bid for digital terrestrial TV

PETALING JAYA: About 60 companies are said to have collected documents to bid for the digital terrestrial television (DTT) service that would involve the buildup of a common integrated infrastructure for all the free-to-air TV stations to migrate to provide digital TV nationwide.

Those in the know claim that most of the big boys in the telecoms sector such as Telekom Malaysia Bhd ™, Maxis Bhd, Celcom Axiata Bhd, YTL Communications, Puncak Semangat Sdn Bhd and several vendors and suppliers had collected the documents in late-April. Most had also attended a briefing last month conducted by the industry regulator, Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Several local companies have partnered foreign players to tap technical expertise and the bidders have till 12pm on July 24 to make their submissions.

Celcom is working with Broadcast Australia for its bid while Puncak has New Zealand's Kordia as its technical partner.

It is believed that only a third will make their submissions, but there is also talk that some of the players may form a consortium to make a joint bid.

Players like TM, Puncak and Celcom are keen to take on the project, as most of transmission towers are owned by TM, RTM and Celcom.

However, one setback that some players see is the need for them to provide the set top boxes which is a costly affair and had hoped for some subsidy from the Government. With digital TV, users will need a set top box to unscramble the signals for viewing.

However, it is clearly stipulated in the tender documents that the parties will have to fund the entire project and the winner will not be able to charge more for transmission services as the free-to-air players will pay existing rates.

“It is a bit tough for some to make money in the initial years as the upfront cost is high,'' said an industry player.

The whole DTT or DTTB (digital terrestrial TV broadcasting as some countries call it) is for the free-to-air channels to migrate to a digital format to offer digital TV, HD TV and other related TV services including mobile and pay TV.

The winner will have to design, build, own and operate the infrastructure for DTT fixed TV reception services, comprising the transmission, network facilities and the Digital Multimedia Broadcasting Hub.

“For economies of scale in the Malaysian market, it is envisaged that a common integrated infrastructure provider approach will be taken to maximise operational efficiency such as infrastructure sharing, bandwidth sharing and possibly use of common platform for customer management,'' the document said.

The frequency bands allocated for DTT are from 174 MHZ to 230 MHz and 470 MHz to 742 MHz.

Even though the bands have been specified, there is a consideration to re-stack the channels to below 698Mhz, meaning that the 700Mhz band could be free up for mobile service.

Many of the mobile service providers are hoping to land a slice of the controversial 700Mhz spectrum band for their mobility and broadcasting solutions.

The analogue TV switch-off date has been set at the end of 2015 but the entire migration journey will probably be completed by 2020.

Last year, I went to Broadcast Asia-2011 in Singapore. I scanned the DVB-T frequencies using my old USB DVB-T PCTV 340e, and I got several Singaporean DVB-T channels. I did the scanning at Johor Baharu, near the Tambak Johor. I also able to grab the EPG lists.

There was 720-test channel, but, I cannot view it. I think this is the T2 new format broadcast. At the Broadcas Asia 2011, I saw DVB-T2 related booths every where. smile.gif So, most probably, Malaysia will go for the T2.

There was 720-test channel, but,  I cannot view it. I think this is the T2 new format broadcast. At the Broadcas Asia 2011, I saw DVB-T2 related booths every where. smile.gif So, most probably, Malaysia will go for the T2.

Doubtful. If it's T2 then a T1 tuner will not be able to find at all. In other words, if one frequency is T2, then the T1 tuner will not be able to see all the channels in that frequency. I.e. all three MHP_Portal, MHP_720Test and HD5 will not show up on the scan.

MHP tho is Digital Teletext. Maybe the tuner chip not compatible with Digital Teletext? Or not compatible with HD Digital Teletext?

Yeah, sadly. A LYN member actually asked MP when they want to go digital. Their answer? Once RTM digital launch, maybe end of 2013.

Not that they haven't tested digital tho. MP announced testing DMB-T (China system) back in 2008. I actually got to see it thanks to my mom bringing back a handheld DMB-T TV from China. And the frame rate was terrible. They shut off test in late 2011.

MHP_Portal & MHP_720Test are actually simulcast of HD5.....they have been removed since last week and is no longer on the airwaves/does not appear in scanning of channels.

Seems like Mediacorp is consolidating their resources on the testing of DVB-T2 channels, HD Suria, HD Vasantham & HD8 per the news released last week.......I do not have a DVB-T2 tuner....so can't really see if test channels are already in testing phase.

Free-to-air TV channels to go digital from end-2013
By Hetty Musfirah | Posted: 19 June 2012 1003 hrs

SINGAPORE: All of MediaCorp's seven free-to-air channels will go fully digital by December 2013.

Four of the channels (Channel 5, Channel 8, Suria and Vasantham) will also be transmitted in high definition by then, while the remaining three (Channel NewsAsia, Okto and Channel U) will follow suit by 2016.

The move marks another milestone in Singapore's roadmap in making the digital switchover, where analogue signals will be completely switched off by 2020. This is the deadline that all ASEAN countries have agreed to switch off analogue signals.

Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Yaacob Ibrahim made the announcement at the opening ceremony of the Infocomm Media Business Exchange held at the Marina Bay Sands on Tuesday morning.

He said the move is made possible with the adoption of a new digital broadcasting standard known as DVB-T2 (Digital Video Broadcasting - Second Generation Terrestrial).

Dr Yaacob said digital TV not only offers better image and sound quality but also frees up scarce spectrum for other services such as wireless broadband.

To enjoy digital TV, the Media Development Authority said no action is required from those who currently subscribe to pay-TV with StarHub or SingTel, as they already receive the channels digitally.

Those without pay-TV can continue using their current TV sets but they will need to purchase an antenna and a DVB-T2 digital receiver.

However there is no need to rush for the receivers now, as they are likely to be made available in Singapore only from March or April 2013.

MDA said even when the free-to-air channels are transmitted digitally at the end of 2013, analogue transmissions will continue. The simulcast period is to give ample time for viewers to make the necessary adjustments to embrace digital TV.

Currently, about 4 in 10 households in Singapore do not subscribe to pay-TV. Among those who do, many have secondary TV sets that are not linked to a pay-TV service. For these two groups, they will need to purchase a DVB-T2 receiver and an antenna, and hook these to each of their current TV sets.

Without these, viewers will not be able to receive the free-to-air channels on their TV sets once analogue signals are switched off.

It is understood that the DVB-T2 receivers can cost between S$60 and S$100.

MDA said the picture quality and size that viewers receive will differ depending on the type of TV set. To reap the full benefits of digital TV and the high definition channels that will be transmitted, viewers may want to opt for a new digital HDTV set.

MDA said the adoption of the DVB-T2 standards comes after a successful trial conducted last year with MediaCorp and pay-TV operator StarHub. The trial, which involved some 500 households in Ang Mo Kio and Bedok, showed that DVB-T2 was suitable for Singapore's urbanised environment.

MDA said it will be working closely with MediaCorp, major manufacturers and electronics stores on an educational campaign to help consumers prepare for the digital switchover.

MediaCorp said: "As the planned switchover to digital broadcasting is scheduled to complete only by December 2013, we will make an announcement when more details become available towards the second half of next year."

Till then, viewers can attain more information on this website.

Singapore official website publish DVB-T only, no mention of T2. I had to hack into my dated LD650 to enable the feature, otherwise its non existant by default.

f.y.i.; last line mentions Malaysia likely selecting DVB-T2

Singapore goes for DVB-T2

Jun 25, 2012 9:57 AM, By Philip Hunter


Read more: http://broadcastengineering.com/news/singa.../#ixzz1yumxgRZB

The latest DVB version of digital terrestrial, DVB-T2, is continuing to gain ground outside its European heartland following announcement of its adoption for Free To Air (FTA) terrestrial services in Singapore by the country’s Media Development Authority.

All FTA TV channels will go fully digital by the end of 2013 using the DVB-T2 standard, including the seven transmitted by FTA broadcaster MediaCorp.


The adoption of DVB-T2 comes after a successful trial in 2011 conducted by MediaCorp and pay-TV operator StarHub, involving about 500 households, demonstrating that the technology worked in the country’s largely urban environment. During switchover, there will be a simulcast period during which both digital and analogue FTA signals will be broadcast to ensure households have time to get set up for digital reception. The switchover will not be completed until 2020, in line with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations relaxed timeframe. Non pay TV customers will need a DVB-T2 digital receiver and an indoor or outdoor antenna to receive digital TV signals on their current TV sets.

The adoption by Singapore follows a vigorous and bullish campaign by the DVB to persuade countries outside Europe to adopt DVB-T2 rather than one of the other variants of digital terrestrial. Currently, DVB-T or DVB-T2 are deployed across much of Europe and Africa apart from the sub-Saharan countries, along with Russia, parts of the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

ATSC reigns in North America including Mexico, ISDB-T in most of South America and Japan, and DTMB in China. The DVB argues that neither ATSC nor ISDB-T exploit the spectral efficiencies now technically possible, being essentially older systems, and that for this reason DVB-T2 is being adopted whenever there is a proper assessment.


This was the case in Colombia, which diverged from the rest of Latin America by announcing in May 2012 it was deploying a DVB-T2 network rather than ISDB-T. The move was not a complete surprise, since Colombia had introduced the first generation DVB-T in 2010, involving a consortium comprising private operators Caracol TV and RCN TV. This consortium deployed 24 transmitters from the Rohde & Schwarz R&S NV8600 family, and these are now being upgraded to DVB-T2.

In Asia Pacific, Malaysia looks like joining neighboring Singapore in adopting DVB-T2, following trials now underway.

Possibly. Because DVB-T2 signal can be scrambled thanks to an extension called CI, which introduces the need to have a smart card and smart card reader on the tuner to access the channel. Most likely countries like UK and Singapore pressed for it because they still have TV license requirement (one thing Malaysian gomen got right is to abolish need for lesen TV- though it seems that they thinking of starting lesen TV again because they also considering CI according to their document). Singapore's Digital T2 test signal is found to be encrypted, but currently their T1 Digital signal still clear and can receive from most of Johor.

Again, possibly that once they shut off T1 and analog, south Malaysia will no longer be able to watch Singapore TV (unless someone finds out how to make a cracked smart card).

Well, if Malaysia T2 is broadcast clear, then SG will be able to receive. But if RTM and MP decides to CI-protect their signal as well (may possibly happen), then SG will be blocked out of Malaysian TV. SG signal has a high probability of being CI-protected already because they need to pay TV license and their test signal is already CI-Protected.

Migration to digital terrestrial TV

MPrima has been doing the necessary investment and changes since 2010 to prepare for the digital TV transition
given the government’s plan to digitalise FTA TV nationwide by mid-2013. Analogue switch off is planned to
take place by the end of 2015. Management expressed that MPrima is not interested in participating in the infrastructure of the digital TV rollout. At this juncture, MPrima intends to pay for only a single transmission.

I ordered PCTV Systems DVB-T2 290e nanoStick HD TV Tuner at Amazon UK this Monday (2013-02-04), and,... I received it yesterday (2013-02-07).
Here is the cost details.

Item(s) Subtotal: £45.83 (MYR 222.64)
Postage & Packing: £21.39 (MYR 103.91)
-----
Total before VAT: £67.22 (MYR 326.55)
VAT: £0.00
-----
Total: £67.22
-----
Total for this Delivery: £67.22
Sold by: Amazon EU S.a.r.L.

Yes, it was international delivery by Amazon UK.

As I mentioned earlier in my previous posts, I already have Pinnacle PCTV 340e, Hybrid Pro, and was looking for USB DVB-T2 tuner to 'play' with on GNU/Linux Slackware64 OS platform.

Unfortunately, no DVB-T2 broadcast available right now in Bandar Sri Damansara to 'play' with. smile.gif Hopefully I able to try DVB-T2 broadcast soon. Currently, the DVB-T2 tuner is receiving DVB-T RTM's test broadcast. Well, at least I am preparing for future.

Performance wise, compared to PCTV 340e, the PCTV 290e has a bit better signal lock and stable reception.
The downside is, the full scan is slower. PCTV 340e able to do the full scan in about 3 minutes, but PCTV 290e is in about 6 minutes.

Thank you.

Relax my friend. Not everyone interested in DVB-T. Asto, Hypptv (unifi), Internet ,..are more accessible. Govt can 'delay'/drag thing because not many people care about DVB-T, because it is just one of the broadcasting technology.

The downside is, the full scan is slower. PCTV 340e able to do the full scan in about 3 minutes, but PCTV 290e is in about 6 minutes.

Thank you.

PCTV 290e has MCX (Micro CoaXial) connector, and 340e has normal coax antenna connection..Good thing is, PCTV 240e comws with coax antenna connector -> MCX adaptor,so I can use standard antenna connector.

Well, I think JB will be selling DVB-T boxes because it's for the time being required to receive Singapore. Outside JB, I don't think so. At least, I know one store that used to sell (IT Superstore e@Curve) but they stopped.

At the time being, no T2 signal. Only T signal, and at that only 4 active TV channels (1, 2, i, and Muzik Aktif). Pelangi, Panggung and Sinergi appeared to have shut down transmission already - since late last year they only transmit test pattern. Aside from that, there's two channels that never worked from the start - EPG and Games, which only result in "Not Supported" error on my LG TV. There's also 7 radio channels.

Eh, no. I'd kill to get all the cartoons that's on TCS Okto. You can NOT get the new Strawberry Shortcake in Malaysia, especially Season 2 onwards. And Arthur which in Malaysia has not shown beyond Season 4 for stupid reasons, but Singapore has aired up to the latest Season, Season 16! sweat.gif

But as it stands, Selangor too far from Singapore cry.gif

1) I just rescanned DVB-T signal, and, as we can see below, no more PANGGUNG, PELANGI and SINGERGI channels, using PCTV 290e (DVB-T2 USB dongle).

2) All channels are in both 658 anda 674 MHz.

3) Digital radio broadcast also named as service-id 13 to 19

As a 'RAKYAT'/people, I hope after the PRU13, 'we may get better DVB-T[2] service. smile.gif

Yeah, I already have Astro Byond PVR and Unifi's Hypptv and SmartTV internet, but not really watches them, but, my kids are utilizing the services. smile.gif

Yes. you may or not be right smile.gif... We cannot see the future, still we can hope for the best. If we 'changed' the government, does it guarantied a better digital broadcast in near future?

BTW, RTM already put the plans of the digital broadcasting, eventhough the 'dateline' changed several times. smile.gif But, there still hope. smile.gif Eventually, sooner or later most of the countries will broadcast in digital, and our beloved country will need to follow. So. whether the government is changed or not, the broadcasting technology will changes/evolves.

I think HD is only coming once they get the transmitters set up. Which, if be end wins again, won't happen until at least June (and if new info minister is just as incompetent, expect more delays).

Or maybe experimental stream pop up if got special event. Whichever happens first.

As I mentioned earlier, sooner or later, our country will be on DVB-T/2 because of the broadcast technology improvements. The analog broadcast system will go obsolete and will be replaced with the digital. Just wait and see. smile.gif

Malaysia so far broadcasting DVB-T1. And well, you're right, FTA here is full of Gomen BS propaganda. But some times there's good stuff. And when there is (I.e. Wild Wild West some times back) the quality is even better than Assteruk SD and with no rain fade problems too. I think T1 here is transmitted in Dolby Pro Logic since the TV show Dolby symbol and say it's stereo on digital channels.

There is announcements that they're going to officially launch with T2. Just that the previous imbecile info minister rice keeps causing delay to the launch!

Thing is, I'm all for a new 3D HD TV now. Cannot stand the LG TV lagging on analog input anymore because I'm actually using the TV as a HD3D monitor for my consoles- the tuner is just a nice extra. Even sometimes HDMI will lag... And I figure if I have to get a TV since here is no such thing as a 32" HD3D monitor (no tuner screen) with four HDMI ports (and thus don't need external switch), might as well future proof it with a working T2 tuner...

Doesn't look like any of the models is being sold in Malaysia  shakehead.gif

Sony Malaysia still selling HX/BX/EX models. No W models.

If you can still find this Sony Bravia 55HX955, then you will have a DVB-T2 capable TV. Mediacorp is already broadcasting test signals in DVB-T2.

Specs are here: http://asia.cnet.com/product/sony-bravia-k...ed-46728504.htm

I need to go check Aeon. Since Sony store selling for 3499, sounds like Aeon has a better deal.

I bought 2 DX brand antennas one UHF and one VHF that are made in Japan to reduce ghosting on analogue channels but doesn't really work that well, but it works well with digital signal. Then I bought 2 Maspro boosters to help with the signal amplification, which is not really needed, just being kiasu.

The channel epg states the channels are Channel 5, 8, CNA and Channel U or Okto, can't remember.

Maybe they're still butthurt because they support DMB-T which was shot down by gomen? >.<

Last I checked RTM's DMB-T signal only carry radio channels, no more TV channels. So I guess gomen decide to go with DMB-T for radio only, which would understandably upset Media Prima who wants to use DMB-T for both TV and radio (their test signal was in DMB-T, and actually carries TV3 live, TV3 delayed a few hours, and HOT FM).

According to this report by The Edge, it might be take place as early as the first half of 2014 although the media giant have yet to reveal the actual channel (out of four) that will receive the HD treatment.

Media Prima’s Chief Financial Officer Mohamad Ariff Ibrahim has stated that the HD simulcast will be immediately launched once the digital terrestrial television broadcast (DTTB) infrastructure is in place. According to MCMC, the initial roll-out of DTTB services is expected to happen in the first quarter of 2014 while full nationwide coverage is targeted by end of 2015.

Let's see how SKKM allocates/regulates frequency spectrum in Malaysia. There are lots of info in the document, but I want to focus on DVB-T spectrum only.

http://www.skmm.gov.my/skmmgovmy/media/Gen..._Final_2012.pdf


Page 184
VHF TV Broadcasting
Channel 6-12 will used for DTT service after Analogue Switch Off (ASO)

Note: I found a 2MHz bandwidth 'DTT signal' around Channel 11 or 217-219 MHz to be precise using SDR scanner (GQRX) . smile.gif But I don't have decoder or software to decode the signal.
Attached Image
The signal is weak, from my work desk; inside office building. but it's there.

Page 185
UHF TV Broadcast Band V
Channel 35 to 54 are reserved for DTT services. Now,we already got channel 44 (658MHz) and 46 (674MHz).

So, we know that more DTT service may/will come in the future. How soon? Just wait and see. smile.gif


Thank you.

Let's see how SKKM  allocates/regulates  frequency spectrum in Malaysia. There are lots of info in the document, but I want to focus on DVB-T spectrum only.

VHF TV Broadcasting
Channel 6-12 will used for DTT service after Analogue Switch Off (ASO)

Note: I found a 2MHz bandwidth  'DTT signal' around Channel 11 or 217-219 MHz to be precise using SDR scanner (GQRX) . smile.gif But I don't have decoder or software to decode the signal.

The signal is weak, from my work desk; inside office building. but it's there.

But once it goes digital, the video and audio quality may improves a lot. Yeah, still need to use decoder to enjoy the DTT broadcast.

Or LCD TV with build-in DVB-T/T2 decoder. Still waiting (to have enough money) to buy Sony Bravia KDL-32W674A, for related. tongue.gif
