merong nanalo kanina ng digibox na 1 year na sumasali sa pacontest ni Ted Failon, exactly to the date...;)

di ko mahulaan lagi ang boses...

pero back to topic.. malinaw sya, considering kulob ang indoor ng bahay namin at solid buhos ng wall... iniisip ko i aerial antenna.. will research for DVB-T outdoor antenna.

Same here. Buhos na walls. Although I am like 1-1.5km from ABS-CBN and GMA.

Tama, GMA is back. Scan occasionally in case there are changes.

Thanks to Sir Gino, my Digibox is finally working and I decided to get more units.

Initial impression is I am impressed. It is like Skycable HD quality.
Uber Thank you Sir Gino!

As of this time we just used the supplied Antenna with the unit.

Hoping to improve signal further by installing an outdoor antenna.

You can look at the settings system information to see the frequency band. That can help you select the correct antenna. I haven't looked yet. My signal is fine.

Not sure, but aren't ISDB-T (and even DVB-T) transmissions within the same old UHF/VHF bands so that you should be able to use your old external antennas to receive transmissions better?  Connectors and cables are the same right (75ohm cables, F connectors)?

Paling nga lang yung older antennas sa VHF frequencies.  Lagare katapat para makuha upper UHF channels.  :)  Good luck.

Hello PDVD members, who wants to participate for a group buy? Kindly give feedback if anyone is interested so we can set. Only few units left, so anyone interested will have the opportunity to snag one before it's gone. I would like to thank sir CoolTOYZ for offering his place for meetup exclusively for PinoyDVD members.

Hi there. To tell you the truth, i am  ery interested in this. However, If you want to sell this product in anyway in pdvd, you really must by abide by pdvd rules and post it in the appropriate marketplace section, include a price, indicate payment methods, meetup/delivery details and abide by the reservation rules.

Suggest for potential buyers not to purchase from digibox unless pdvd rules are followed.

Digibox, I read in your for sale ad that some people get solar channels with an external antenna. Can you ask them what kind of antenne the used? I am thinking of Yagi but fear losing other channels since that is very directional.

Also there is another f-connecter beside the antenna input. Can that be used for dual antenna setup?

Where do you connect the external antenna?

Saw this at one of carinderia here in Pandacan, it's truly HD-like! Sa mga owners nito, does this unit serve as media player? It has usb connedtion or it is for recording purposes? Tia ;)

I'm located in Marikina. Got one digibox 2 weeks ago for my house-help to use, since their CRT TV no longer has an antenna. So far, ABS-CBN channels have very clear reception, but GMA channels come & go. The TV is located in a partially open area (not fully surrounded by walls).

Yung SD digibox ng Sky merong RF out. Ang output nya same lang sa AV OUT so parang extension lang sya. Pag ikinabit yung RF out papunta sa 2nd TV tapos i-tune sa channel 3, lalabas yung same audio and video galing sa AV OUT. Pag nilipat yung channel, lilipat din sya.

Tingin ko ang gamit nito para dun sa sobrang lumang TV dati na wala pang RCA inputs. Naalala ko dati mga VHS player tsaka family computer RF out o kaya yung 300ohms flatwire antenna ang gamit tapos i-tune sa channel 3 yung TV.
