I think, if ever hindi ka nakapag bayad, ang makukuha mo lang sa Cignal is TV5, the rest hindi na kasi naka encrypt, si TV5 lang ang FTA.

FYI. Their new website is up: http://www.cignal.tv/ although information are scarce.

I was just talking to them over the phone.  Laguna area (daw) charges 1500 installation fee instead of the usual 1000.

Sa mga naka cignal, na try nyo na ba kabit sa AVR yung satellite box?

i noticed that sa settings you can change the audio to PCM or Dolby. I tried viewing HD channels using both settings pero 2.0 lang lumalabas sa audio nya  ??? This could also be dependent on the broadcast

Yung cartoon channel di masyadong hidef yung dating but the others ok very clear.

Sd channels are better than skycable when I compared it  ;)

Tried it in my AVR, Dolby Pro Logic IIx lang ang lumabas, meaning hindi DD 5.1  :-[

An add shown in sulit.com mentioned audio to be 'stereo' only.  So I think the problem is the source (its in stereo only), the box is capable of pcm/dolby surround.  Maybe in the future broadcast will be in surround sound.

I called cignal earlier wanting to give it a try.  I asked about lock in period and apparently it is 24 months.  I find that too long.. pano kung pangit pala or kung di na nadagdagan yun HD channels e hindi sulit yun.

To those who subscribed, how is the SD broadcast compared to sky?  Iniisip ko kung SD na lang i subscribe ko, inaalala ko talaga baka di na madagdagan yung HD channels tapos naka lock in ako ng 24 months.  Pag 6 or more na HD channels thats good enough for me.

Bro jetro, that is correct, 2 yrs lock-in period, pero for me sulit ito kasi malinaw talaga SD. as for HD channels, ito talaga pambato nila, HD quality talaga. This coming August more HD & SD channels to come. may nag scan na nga sa kabilang forum and found a new transponder for Cignal with 6 HD channels. This means that seperate ang TP ng HD channels sa SD, so mas lilinaw ito and more room for additional HD channels. Yung mababakante namang TP, pandagdag ng SD channels, so very promising talaga. PLDT ba naman eh

They have a schedule set for installation this coming sunday afternoon. I will keep everybody posted about the outcome. I hope i will not be disappointed considering the reputation that PLDT has.

Yun din sa tingin ko bka mag increase, pero baka hindi gaano kataas kasi talo sila, nagpapakilala pa lang sila dapat pa dama muna.
Nagtest broadcast kaninang umaga ng HD Sony Entertainment TV. Sana i offer na din nila Discovery HD & ESPN-HD

Hi folks, just had my Cignal combo package installed today and I can attest that IT ROCKS! 3 HD channels are included - History, Disney HD and VOOM - plus 21 SD's. Even the SD's are very clear and noise-free and more HD channels are in the pipeline daw.

History HD on my 50" Sony SXRD is awesome, like watching Blu Ray videos all the time. I am in Olongapo BTW, and I was customer #001 hehe

Technicians from Cignal installed the dish yesterday. I am not impressed with sd chaneels since they show minimum effect considering that they are already in digital transmission. But the hd channels are awesome. Really blu-ray quality. Downfall is i still can't receive broadcast from the playhouse-hd channel. Already called up their attention to this.

I am using a toshiba 42' full hdtv. Do we have to lower the resolution from 1080i to 480i to make the sd channel clearer? Why is it if the picture or the channel is in menu mode, it is clearer than to make it full screen? Can somebody experience what i am experiencing? Please help.

They will have additional hd channel for the days to come but a minimum monthly charge would have to be made.

2 hd channels palang ang offer ng cignal. I already saw the demo of of the HD offering but i was not that impressed so i did not subscribe for it. Medyo sanay na kasi ang mata ko sa Blu-ray and it is not even near to that quality.

Will have to check the quality of the SKY HD soon. Sana mas maganda.

Hi stud, no need to lower the resolution to have clear SD. I am currently using 1080i and my SD channels are clear, my signal strength is 180% signal quality is 100%. As for the screen menu, i think it is normal & will look sharper since it is around 6 inch screen size compared to your 42" when turned to full screen.
